Day 07 - Favourite comic couple
This one is supposed to lead me to choose some romantic couple from comics. Maybe Scott and Jean from the X-Men, or Peter and Kitty from the same, or maybe Dan and Laurie from Watchmen or even Apollo and the Midnighter from the Authority. But I'm going to go a different way and pick a double act or partnership. My favourite couple in comics is Johnny Alpha and Wulf Sternhammer from Strontium Dog.
Alpha is a mutant bounty hunter and Wulf is his actual Viking partner. Both from the 2000AD strip Strontium Dog. To quote another SD fan, Simon Pegg, their stories are a slice of fried gold.
