SAM SLADE USED TO BE ONE OF THE BEST ROBO-HUNTERS IN THE BUSINESS. But he's getting old and old means slow — and slow means dead!
That is, until Sam takes on the biggest case of his life: Verdus was a paradise planet, ripe for transformation into a place humans could live; while the colonists made their long journey there, a self-replicating robot was sent out to prepare the planet. But since the humans arrived, all contact with the colony has been lost — and Sam aims to find out why.
Along the way, however, the lightspeed journey to Verdus is sabotaged and relativistic effects make Slade into a much younger man, while his pilot is transformed into a little kid. Sam might be back to his best, but will even that be good enough against a whole robo-planet?
This classic adventure is written by John Wagner (Judge Dredd, Batman), with art by Ian Gibson (The Ballad of Halo Jones, Star Wars) and Jose Luis Ferrer (Ant Wars).
