In typical cockeyed BAOB fashion, let's celebrate Peter Capaldi as the new Doctor with a kickin' strip from the early issues of Doctor Who Weekly, detailing the adventures of friendly neighbourhood psychopath Abslom Daak, a character who would've fit right in alongside MACH 1 & Strontium Dog in contemporary issues of 2000AD. He's not likely to pop up on the show any time soon, more's the pity.
Daak's your classic tough-guy / anti-hero with a death wish, a spiritual brother to Snake Plissken or Hell Tanner, and the strip is as suitably two-fisted and macho as Steve Moore can make it, as well as a brilliant early example of Steve Dillon's american styled artwork.
I don't know who first hired Steve to work at Marvel USA, but it must've been the easiest decision in the world, looking at this stuff.
