On the cartoons in this one, I like the one that's obviously taken from Viz, mildly intrigued by the one on page 7 showing a man in a suit with a copy of Black Flag and then a tank-top wearing urchin holding Direct Action - is besuited Black Flag man Meltzer? Any idea about the other? And guessing that "Hull-CIA link exposed" is a jibe about the former DAM branch/Hull Syndicalists, rather than just suggesting that the entire city of Hull is a CIA psyop?
