An unassuming little story that neatly dovetails into the end of the Apocalypse War. It raises the question of what would happen to all the robots? And then ignores it in favour of a wrestling match. Whilst the combat and pre-match trash talk is evocative of the British TV wrestling of the period and the opening is superbly atmospheric in terms of devastation the story goes nowhere.
This might have been another ‘Robot War,’ looking deep into the aftermath of war on minority groups or the disenfranchised. It does have the superbly dark line from Dredd “Next time, we get our retaliation in first.” Sadly not a lot else.
