Your mum's got a typo in her name! Hope it's not too late to tweak the cover.

Just been delivered which was a nice suprise!

Um... you might want to check inside it, though.

Love this!

You've got all the ones I can think of.

Just checkin'... this is for the Middenface solo stories that are not 'Young Middenface', which we already voted on a while back?
So basically that one fun John McCrea strip from way back in Volume 1 of the Megazine?

Hmm, good point. Basically we should only be counting here Wan Man an' His Dug plus Grannibal. Everything else ran as 'Young Middenface', which as you say I think we've already voted on.

Ah, man. I've read a lot of Shimura, but always found it a bit impenetrable. Like Magnetica, I won a Shimura graphic novel from Tharg and never even got around to reading it. Give me Inaba/Hondo City Justice every time!

So I'm voting Vanguard. It didn't set the world on fire, no, but it was a solidly crafted thrill. Starting in my first ever prog, it was lovely to have something that didn't depend on decades of past continuity.

I don't really remember Movie Anderson, although I know I've read it. Consider it a protest vote against Red Razors.

A Sonic the Comic reader long before I was a squaxx, I was really excited that Nigel Kitching was joining the Good Ship Tharg, and reunited with his old StC compatriot Richard Elson, no less. But A.H.A.B was merely... okay.

So I'm voting Bato Loco on this one, which was never less than darn good fun.

Well, I really like Lenny Zero. It's just darn good fun, and I'm a sucker for Diggle's 'Here's what was really going on all along' twist reveals, in best heist-genre tradition.

But as potentially one of the few to even remember The Scrap, I feel I have to throw it a vote, because it doesn't deserve a wipeout. Elson's art is as reliable as ever, with some great designs, and Spurrier packs an incredible amount of worldbuilding into five episodes. I particularly like how the lead has been pregnant for five years, as enforced population control dictates she's not allowed to have her baby yet. A little slice of dystopia well worth seeking out.

Right! With a big nod to Dark Jimbo, it's time for me to venture into the FOREST OF DOOM!

Great stuff! And I think I'm right in saying that this is the board's first successful playthrough? [Edit - No, not quite, but we've had fewer than you'd think.]

Unable to stop myself I loot the cave and thank goodness I brought those nose filters.

Bah! I'm not bitter. Not at all...

Angel isn't good, but he turns up later in both Zombo and Armoured Gideon, both of which are very enjoyable thrills.

Stalag 666 was not an enjoyable thrill.

Strontium Dogs Vol 3: Peter Hogan (213)
Crossroads (18)
Mirrors (18)
The Alphabet Man (18)
High Moon (48)
The Mutant Sleeps Tonight (6)
Deals (24)
Hate & War (43)
Night Of The Hunters (38)

And, presumably, Epicedium, which caps off the whole thing and sort-of sets up the Abnett/Harrison run.

There's more material than I thought! Bang goes The Scarlet Apocrypha. ☹

I'd rather have Leviathan packaged with another horrot tale or two: Necronauts, Cradlegrave, A Love Liked Blood, etc...

And I'm reviving this prediction - I still think Leviathan will be packaged with Necronauts...

Sounds like 3 books of Strontium Dogs/Durham Red.

Wow! Wouldn't gave thought there'd be enough material. My hope for The Scarlet Apocrypha revives...

...special kudos to Dark Jimbo, whose self-aware travel blogs of Firetop Mountain and Darkwood Forest are comedy gold. 

Gosh, thanks! I wasn't sure how many people were reading them, to be honest, but they're fun to write - and keep me playing the gamebooks.

As there don't seem to be any other playthroughs of Forest of Doom on the way, any day now I'll strapping back on the leather armour and heading off to Port Blacksand...

It was a variable thrill, by its very nature, but the best of Ro-Jaws' Robo-Tales were better than anything The 86ers could muster.
