What would happen if Superman came to Mega City One? 2000AD would get sued. So they come up with quite a cute and clever allegory involving some wordplay. Because the whole thing isn’t meant to be taken seriously (thank goodness) it is easy to swallow this humorous diversion.

Unfamiliar artists Collins and Farmer deliver a technique very different from the house style. This transformation from the usual heavy blacks is striking and may have been for time reasons.
