Bob Dylan said that to live outside the law you must be honest - but then he never found himself caught between the law and the villains! Everyoneıs after Burglar Bill - and he never did anything wrong in the first place. Well, except for that whole 'burglar' thingŠ

It's Police Constable Stephen Hill's first night on the beat, and he's finding out that real life policing doesn't quite match up to the excitement of the police programs he watched when he was growing up. But when his path crosses that of Burglar Bill things take a turn for the worse as he comes face to face with real life crime and violence. A revised reprint of Burglar Bill originally published by Dancing Elephant press - this issue also includes a 10-page prologue and the very first Burglar Bill story from 1986.
