Toby gets some exercise, White Cloud investigates a colony, a kneepad seller gets hunted down, media empires make the news and Rudd fits in a quick marriage.
A problematic cover with a few outdated racial stereotypes. Outside of those there's a nice design touch in having the Japanese flag in the sky. Tharg's Nerve Centre features another pic by future art droid John McCrea - no Judge Toyah this time - it's Rogue Sucker.

It's a good cover that stands on its own - please don't have this cover have a text story in the annual!
