It was Starlord that merged mid-Verdus - introducing Strontium Dog and Ro-Busters to the fold (and re-introducing Flesh, as I remember).
Loved this. Damian Edwardson speaks so fluently and well about the early Robo-Hunter stories recapturing his own youthful enthusiasm while also being very knowledgeable. Great. There is quite a lot of background noise but after a while I didn't really notice. Chris Hallam
