    I'm trying to remember a graphical novel, or comic series from the 90s. I vaguely remember 3 different stories:

    - A UN peacekeeping force sponsored by corporations
    - Super heroes that are engineered and the first generation being replaced by the next
    - A story set in Northern Ireland during the troubles

    Any ideas?

    Did you ever read Crisis by Fleetway in the late 80s/ early 90s?
    Two of those stories ring bells for me.

    Sounds like it could have been some strips from Crisis. I never saw them as collected works, though they may have well been. Do you recall anything else about them?

    2. New Statesmen. And brilliant they are too. Crisis, Deadline and Revolver were all around the same time, and all awesome.

    Speaking of superheroes and the troubles, I've just remembered that captain planet episode set in NI... Going to have to find that now to see if it's as terrible as I remember.

    Still have the first 15 or so copies of Crisis and, as a fan of the late great Ezquerra, have been tempted to pick up the full Third World War. Also have some Marshal Law from short lived Toxic kicking around too.

    Sounds good. That reminds me, I’ve really got to get round to finding a compendium of Charley’s War.
