Synopsis for "Robo-Hunter: Killing of Kidd (part 4)"

Kidd swells up like a balloon and starts to float away. Unfortunately, Sam punching him in the stomach solves this problem before Kidd bursts. A flying vehicle bursts through the window and starts shooting at Kidd. Sam chases the vehicle in Kidd's hoverlimo (perhaps wishing to shake the driver's hand). When the vehicle shoots, Sam shoots back and it crashes. The pilot was none other than Orson Cart, Kidd's understudy. Kidd promptly fires Sam. As soon as Sam returns to his office in Baker Street, Kidd phones to tell him that he's hired again, and that his hoverlime is crashing and he urgently needs advice. Sam asks for a raise.

Ace, G.B.H. and Chiefy Pig-Rat are eaten by the same huge flying monster that ate Feek, and are amazed to discover Feek alive in its stomach. Then the monster dissolves. Gordon the living planet explains to everybody that he doesn't want to hurt anyone — the Bampots he 'killed' are still alive — but he doesn't want anybody living on him. The Bampots refuse to leave, and Gordon is too nice to kill them, so he ends up letting them stay. Ace and his buddies fly away in Speedo Ghost, leaving poor old Gordon to his fate.

Synopsis for "Judge Dredd: The Game Show Show (part 1)"

Judge Dredd investigates the unexplained disappearance of four hundred game show hosts. They have been kidnapped by Barimore Dreery, the ex-host of an incredibly dull game show called Many Questions. He was fired for being so boring that all his contestants fell asleep, his television station was "bombarded with hate calls," and the viewing figures were in minus numbers. Now he wants revenge on the whole game show industry, so he is forcing kidnapped hosts to take part in a lethal game (built with money he inherited after his rich uncle died in the Apocalypse War) which is designed to kill them in a variety of gruesome ways. All contestants receive a commemorative ceramic tombstone, and their bodies are dumped in a radiation pit.
