History[]

Orville J. Paxman was a tax collector in the 2000 AD strip Strontium Dog. He came to The Doghouse to try and claim the mutant bounty hunter Johnny Alpha's earnings shortly after he had taken out Bubo and the Bad Boys, claiming that he had failed to pay tax revenue. Johnny tricked Paxman, and when pretending to get his chequebook he had a friend of his beat Paxman up as he went to accept a case.

The case went smoothly, but as Johnny and Wulf Sternhammer attempted to take their bounty to the local jail, they were stopped by Paxman and two police officers. However the two officers managed to get themselves killed when fiddling with Johnny's equipment and Paxman waas left standing there.

Paxman finally took matters into his own hands and handcuffed him and Johnny together and swallowed the key, hoping this would persuade him to come back to Earth with him so Alpha could face charges. Unfortunately for Paxman however, Alpha was on a case trying to take out the Unrighteous Brothers who in turn were attempting to steal a priceless holy object. The Brothers succeeded and Alpha and co were blamed and arrested. In jail, Paxman finally "released" the key (fear is a good way to accelerate intestinal transit). Later, Alpha used his quick wit to convince the officials that Paxman was in fact a dangerous alien shape-shifter he had captured as cargo. The officials released Alpha and Wulf, but kept Paxman imprisoned for an indefinite amount of time.
