So that's what he did, I guess it's the onlu thing he could have done!
Don't know how he manages to throw Tod off the scent in the final 4 pages, as he didn't seem at all suspicious in the annual!

Remember 'though, JP, that the Annusl story may well have been produced before the weekly episodes you've just read. And continuity was never a strong point in one-off Annual stories anyway. He should've received a bump on the head that made him forget seeing Johnny without his mask.

I did ponder that being a possibility, that the annual story happened before this one, but at the end of that story Blacker was giving it all, "....my mate, Tri-Man, me and him are bezzies...." kind of thing, whereas here he gives no indication of "my mate, Tri-Man".
( This really IS a serious discussion of considerable importance! Isn't it? We must get the bottom of this! )

Nah, I'm not saying the Annual story HAPPENED before this one, JP, but that it was WRITTEN before it - maybe even by a different writer. I remember working on the 1986 2000 A.D. and Judge Dredd Annuals in February or March of 1985. Annuals are produced several months (6-8) before publication, weeklies are usually produced several weeks (8-12) before going to the printers. So the weekly story may not even have been written when the Annual one was - or may have been written at the same time, but by a different writer. Guess we'll never know.
