Wow, this is one big omnibus. I finished reading this one with a day to spare. Meaning I am writing this with barely 24 hours to go before it goes live. I have to say, I am really enjoying the Strontium Dog series so far, it definitely isn't knocking Dredd off the top spot but is definitely up there in my enjoyment lists. As I stated earlier this year, I am really getting into the Warlord Games: The Good, The Bad and The mutie; a Strontium game. To ensure I am getting the most out of the game, I am attempting to read a large chunk of the series as well as painting up figures.
Last week I unsurprisingly started with omnibus one. Once you have had a read that, you can head back here. The original book was a great intro to the main trio and did a solid job of introducing us to the series.
I entered this book looking for the lore to be expanded and I was not disappointed.
We then get what I would call more traditional style stories for Strontium Dogs, the first involves Kid Knee, a down and out SD agent, looking for one final score against the criminal known as the Mutator. A good, solid outing. Kid Knee was a fun character and his ending is more of a warning to the main characters about knowing when to quit. This is then followed by the Moses Incident and shows the effect the job can take on Alpha and the lengths he will go to, to right a wrong. A rather dark and emotion-filled story. Then the third story in this trio - The Killing, has Alpha and Sternhammer entering a deadly competition where to win you have to kill everyone else! Alpha and Sternhammer take on this challenge as nearly all the competition have bounties on their heads. This ended up being a classic gunfight story and I loved it.
Here is where the omnibus should finish, but there is actually a throwaway bonus tale at the end, that is just pure filler and not very good, to be honest. Overall a great, fun read. Stronger in the story than the first omnibus and is really setting up some exciting story arcs. I just hope omnibus volume 3 can continue the upward trend.
