North America, 2045. The Global Exo Segregation Zone (aka the "Grey Area") is a huge holding area in Arizona housing all manner of aliens hoping to visit earth: a melting pot for alien disputes, crime and inter-species misunderstandings! The only thing standing in the way of chaos is the Exo Transfer Control squads: heavily-armed immigration cops that keep the peace and make sure everyone has their papers in order. From contemptuous extra-terrestrial ambassadors with diplomatic immunity, to right-wing xenophobic militants and alien freeloaders disguised as luggage: new recruit Jana Birdy discovers that life in the E.T.C. might be the most interesting job on Earth - and the most dangerous!

Enjoyed their 2000AD cover "Unexpected Items in the Fragging Area."

Dan Abnett went out in the first round of Christmas University Challenge. The only comics-related specialist subject on Mastermind that I recall was "Punisher MAX by Garth Ennis" - all twelve issues. John Humphreys enjoyed asking the questions and, not surprisingly, the contestant scored well. The contestant with "Naval Battles of the Second World War" not so much. I can't remember whether "The Eagle" was ever a specialist subject.
