Day of Chaos. Yes it was a huge game-changer but why shouldn't Wagner upend his creation? Brilliantly plotted, but maybe the Dark Judges were a step too far.
They're the best bit!

Max Bubba - the most important non-Kreelman villain of the series, the man who killed Wulf Sternhammer, the subject of Johnny's most famous piece of dialogue, the focus of one of the all-time great 2000AD stories - and he got taken out by the %&£#ing Stixes.

Judge Giant - though I appreciate that he currently seems written as an inveterate whiner with daddy issues, which may explain it.

And also the fact that Kano struggled to even be a runner-up and only made it through by the Will of Colin. What's wrong with you people?

The Horned God seemed a natural end to the series, and the subsequent time-travel stuff became interminable. This also coincided with a time when Pat was at his most polemical, and it started to turn into the Pat Mills Historical Lecture Tour. I'm willing to accept that post-Secret Commonwealth, the series gets back on its feet, but I couldn't get on with Langley's art.

Damn who could that be who voted for Bad Company as their number one???
Some turniphead.

As for Slaine - this has been observed before, but after The Horned God, Slaine shifted from being a prestige series, whose appearance was a big deal, into a far more regular fixture that at one point was barely out of the prog (particular under Dave Bishop's editorship - he wanted Pat to focus all his creative energies on Slaine and Slaine alone.) I think a lot of readers suffered from Slaine fatigue at that point - I did, and I'm quite sure even Pat did - and fell completely out of love with the series in its contemporary form.

We voted for Torquemada! We voted for Termight! We voted with zeal!

I also assumed it'd be Johnny with gold and Nemesis with silver - and yes, I thought there'd be quite a gap between them. If asked prior to the tournament, I'm not sure I'd have even expected Nikolai to break the top 5 - there's a plenty of people who really don't like Dante - but he does so quite commandingly.

It goes to show that while the done and gone thrills of folks like John Smith have a massive impact they don't have the time to work their ways into our hearts the way longer running stories do.
I dunno - about a third of my choices were of that ilk. Mind you, almost half of my choices were either Smith or Milligan - two big proponents of that format.

I would like Gene infinitely more if he looked more like a dog and less like an orc.
