"Hey, is there some jackpoint for my netbook around here? I really need to check emails."
Genius character created by Simon Spurrier and Frazer Irving for 2000AD Megazine. One part Phillip Marlowe, one part Krusty the Clown, he is effectively the best Dredd spinoff ever.
Has a penchant for cigars and whiskey. Demonstrated when shot and asked "Is it bad?" to which he replied when he discovered his hipflask had been punctured "It's worse!"
Perp: What's your point?
Jack Point: It comes right after the Jack.
