It was one of the first multimedia slash zines published. 
Origin of the Title
The title comes from an exchange in The Professionals episode "Killer With A Long Arm":
- Doyle: Don't knock it. Ghetto means, um, being able to depend on your own kind.
- Bodie: So, you and me are a mobile ghetto, eh?

[zine]: This zine was a first for me - my first ' slash' fanzine. For those of you unfamiliar with the term, it comes from the fact that these same sex stories are often referred to as Kirk

[Springtime in Paris]: I note that anyone whose stomach can't process an ordinary dessert, to the point where it incapacitates him for hours, is hardly fit for 24-hour alertness duty in CI5. This destroyed my suspension of belief right at the start of the story, and it never recovered. Healthy eating is one thing; what amounts to a debilitating allergy to a common food substance is another, and is not a useful characteristic. 
[Silent Partners]: ... was vastly entertaining, but left a couple of holes open in the plot. I did like the Murphy/Macklin exchanges, the sense that CI5 is subject to constant self-examination (something more than one televised episodes makes quite clear), and the further sense that it exists within a tangle of semi-cooperating departments where one's ostensible colleagues may not be trustworthy (something else the show brought up repeatedly.) 
[zine]: I skimmed a copy of MOBILE GHETTOES II at a friend's, and found the stories uniformly pleasant and enjoyable, except for the last, short piece—"Heat", by Lainie Stone—which is simply the best Pros story I have ever read and the best fan story I have read in years. Incredibly depressing, incredibly touching, incredibly good. Not all that plausible biologically speaking (thank god!) but who cares, all the emotions are right. I heartily urge people to buy this zine.
