Well have to be honest while this is going the way I was expecting its not anywhere near as close as I'd have fought. Last day on the tie of the round and I'll wrap this up in the morning.

I mean you have been warned, we will do this all, I mean ALL of it again if you don't get this one right and its looking close, without having done a fun count. Get those vote in today.

So here we are final week of Round 3 and quality here will set us up well for what's to come. There are some stunning ties here and a proper local derby to really add some flavour - I was so chuffed when this one was drawn as it's a right good tie (you’ll only have to wait until Tuesday…). Round 4 will be coming soon (Monday next week I imagine!) and it's going to start to get super tough… or tougher at least!

The Round ends with two Dredd world series. Dark Judges gave sentence to an unrated story from the dark-times in Mambo. The rejuvenation of Death and co deserves a good run though… but will it get it as it comes up against Ezquerra’s most Coburn of characters with the super cool dusty cop? Koburn gunned down Terror Tales last round, one of the better series of done in ones so it has form. Pucker up folks as we kiss Round 3 goodbye…

Just reply in this thread naming your favourite thrill of these two series at the beginning of your post (or use Bold tags so I can spot it easily) and say what you like about these wonderful stories after that.

Match ends early on the morning of Sunday 3rd  July and the winner gets a place in Round 4 (of 9!!!).

What on Earth is ALL of this?

For those that need ‘um and can be bothered to follow ‘um there’s some simple rules

Any questions, just ask as ever - and have FUN

Last day of Round 3 might not have the high level draws we’ve seen in some ties this round but they do make for interesting match-ups all the same. Missionary Man, always a bit of a favourite of mine had to fight to get past the original Mean Arena. While Freaks simply spat in the face of Corps, having done for Movie dredd in Round 1. So does the form book make Freaks the favourite? We’ll see how that pans put…

VOTING CLOSED

Full Tilt Boogie got a fair amount of very deserved love, it was such a refreshing thrill and has such wonderful art, but at the end of the day the dark forboding and timelyness of DreadNoughts alway had this.

DreadNought

will be raising its riot shielf in Round 4

VOTING CLOSED

Clear cut and straightforward stuff. I guess the question is how much was fuelled by the nostaglic love of the original series (well or just plain love!) or respect for the superb later series, which I think can get lost in the views on the predecessor? Either way Dandridge just didn't get going here and in the Prog and as such

VCs

will be looks for votes not vapes in Round 4.

A rare booklet by Steve Holland - all about the art of Mike Western. More details on the blog - good luck finding a copy!

Oh wow  that looks aces. Shame it sounds so hard to get hold of!

Its a bit of a tussle, but really its only going one way but there is a lot of love for Full Tilt Boogie, it just got a rough draw. A day to go and I'll wrap it up in the morning.

With a day to go this one looks pretty clear cut, if a little quiet. Maybe the very fact its so onesided means this one isn't quite as interesting as some of the other ties. Either way a day to go and I'll wrap things up in the morning.

Well breathers can only last so long in round 3 and we’re right back at the hard stuff. Helltrekkers is a forgotten classic that seems to be getting re-evaluated of late. Had a decent tussle with Ten-seconders last round. Things though will be harder here, as it will be for its opponent Stickleback didn’t have much of a challenge in Round 2 facing Harmony. Tough one to call this.

We need to cool down after yesterday's big draw match-up, maybe this will allow that? 13 has fought off Angel Zero and Tales from Beyond Science and Banzai Battalion weeded another Andy Clarke strip on Snow/Tiger and then cropped Meet Darren Dead. This might be more low key than the big game yesterday but there still might be a little interest (see what I did there!)

Wow. A couple of draws have surprised me, but to see the (IMO) terrible Mean Team hold up against Firekind (which, I'll concede, is not Smith's best work and shines largely due to great Marshall art and because it ran in the company of some terrible strips in the prog at the time) is genuinely baffling…

I know right - it baffles me, it really does. Mean Team is one of my least favourite thrills ever. Firekind one of my favourites. I tell you what if this carries on I'm going to scrap all the votes that have gone before, start again and we'll do that until you all get it right!

Arh damn never made my mind up on this one. At the end of the day a worthy and probably predictable winner.

Alas this answer is no use to you but

A little of them all!

Ohhh tricky question as I love some of the Cadet Dredd thrills, and think it works best when he's a counterpoint to Rico... but that's as a 50 year old man. Maybe the way to deal with the character, whose a stickler in a comic of rebellion is to go for a more mad cap action approach. So more Jamie Smart (if only it could be Jamie Smart!). So I guess I go.

Why not keep CADET Dredd but just change the tone slightly?
