Faster than Usain Bolt out of the blocks to another world record we have one thrill that is setting a blistering pace. The fairy tale about the tortoise and the hare will stay a fairy tale nothing is gonna catch this trailblazer. 

So, after the first week of voting we have 44 thrills receiving votes. The top two positions I believe is almost done and dusted.  A five-way battle will determine whom takes number 3.

Remember vote as many times as you want but only the last vote counts. Voting close next Sunday the 12th of July.

For me art is part of the story (this comics we talking about). I also discovered in recent years how important lettering is as well. All three of these elements has to come together to bring us a "perfect" story.  Certain arts type of style suits a certain type of  story. If you look at the  top three Rebellion stories all three of them has all three mentioned elements.

I only watched the first episode but must agree with Jim not bad at all.

Great, thanks for running the comp and presenting the winners and numbers.

I'm ashamed to say I've never read Dante...I've only heard good things about it, but there is no nice/accessible collected edition (that I'm aware of) to read. It's on my list, I'll need to track the trades down (I mostly do not read digital, only paper for me!)

Do yourself a favor and read it. It is an amazing peace of work buy some real great talents. Simon Fraser and John Burns artwork worked in tandem to bring us this mega epic

After the meg tourney I will start the Galaxy's Greatest and then we can draw a line between the first 40 plus years versus the Rebellion years.

There is a nice variety in the top ten and I was surprised by the total thrills that got votes. The main thing that really stood out was that the old hands did not get so many votes. I think we will see a major shift when the Galaxy's Greatest tourney is done and dusted.

Button Man being so high up surprises me; otherwise, that’s a pretty solid top ten.

It might be that some people voted historically and not based upon the series that was publish during the Rebellion time

Next we have a list of the writers the total points and the number of the rills that received votes.  Just to point out the for example we have a thrill like Durham Red that was written by both Alan Grant and Alec Worley the points credit was give to Alan Grant as he has written the bulk of the thrill. So yes this might not reflect the picture 100% but it gives you a good indication. 

Writer      Total Points          Total Thrills
Dan Abnett   682            6
Robbie Morrison   492            2
Gordon Rennie   385            9
Ian Edginton   363            10
John Wagner   315            2
John Smith   242            5
Pat Mills      176            5
Rob Williams   130            3
Kek-W      109            2
Al Ewing      61            2
Alan Grant      34            4
TC Eglington   27            1
Alex De Campi   25            1
Simon Spurrier   22            2
Guy Adams   21            2
Misc         12            1
Steven Moore   10            1
Andy Diggle   8            1

With every tournament we have winners and the ones that could have. Rebellion certainly gave us a lot of great thrills the past 20 years. Up to 62 thrills got votes but we can only have one that takes the number 1 position. Throughout the tourney we had two thrills that was neck on neck so here we have it:


In second place we have:


BRINK


and first prize goes to:


NIKOLAI DANTE

Edited to add American Reaper

Almost misted it, updated for you

So now Aliens/Predator will become part of the Marvel-verse. How boring

15
I am with you on how brilliant Nemesis is (and I want to add Slaine as well). I can recall a strip Abnett did for the Meg which I just struggled to read and that is Black Atlantic. So, I do not see everything he does as good because Abnett wrote it. I am not a fan of Sin/Dex for example. I tried to look at the bigger picture and compared the different type of stories the writers did. My conclusion was quite simple and that is Mills always concentrate on one theme for some reason and everything is almost ant-authority pro-chaos.
