3rd-Strontium Dog
2nd-Fall of Deadworld
1st-Brink


This year was a bit tougher then last year. I didn't think this year's The Order was as good as previous outings (Armored Gideon didn't seem to add much to the story). Mechastopheles was a good continuation of the 3riller, but hasn't wowed me yet (except the art). Fiends of the Eastern Front was actually pretty good! But not top 3 contender. Brass Sun was another solid showing, love that series. Skip Tracer is serviceable but unexciting. The Grey Area is going places, and I enjoy it a lot. I actually can't remember what exactly Jaegir was about this year, I'm sure it was good. But if I can't recall it, not a great sign. I wish Survival Geeks was better. Sinister Dexter got kinda weird with the WWII Commando comic thing, not really what I'm looking for in Sin-Dex. Bad Company... was really not very good for me. I actually think color hurt it. Kingdom was good as always, but not super exciting.

1st Stront - a fitting end to the strip, if end there must be, with it's theme of having to fill the boots of legends.

2nd Infestinauts - Now Brink should probably be here if I was voting purely on enjoyment, but MORE NEW STUFF THARG.  That is all

3rd Durham Red - I'm also of the opinion Red has never hit the spot for me in all her iterations, including the original, so this is a winner for me, mostly, though the odd unexplained super speed stuff at the end pushes it down to 3rd slot.

The small house was story of the year tho. No doubt. Despite the forum naysayers.

Yep totally agree with that. Indeed the best Dredd story for a while - probably since Ladykiller.

Totally agree Small House was not only one off the best Dredd stories the last few years it was one of the best stories this year.

I guess we'll give this until the end of tomorrow (Wed 9th) if that's OK?

Haven't done any counting yet but it looks like a winner may have emerged...
