What a year for Dan Abnett. Not only does he take the top spot but he has three stories in the top ten!

And no doubt Lawless would win a Megazine story of the year poll if there was one.

Wow the clear winner aside that's really interesting.

Feel bad that Bad Company and The Order didn't get a single point and loved the second book of Skip Tracer, when it was sat next to some absolutely stella thrills it held its own.

Thanks for doing this Norton Cane.

Thanks for running this! Good fun!

If we do more polls, I’d suggest just giving the results of just the top ten positions say. That way there’s no highlighting of cases with nil points, which can come about just due to the way the voting is done. I quite like Skip Tracer for example. It just wasn’t in my top three.

Lots of love for Brink I see.

Yeah, I take your point. My thinking was that a top three is simply a nice easy thing to score - also it reflects the old cut-out voting coupon which used to appear in the prog. I suppose it could be expanded to a top 5, which would be more inclusive. Or, perhaps people could just rate all the stories out of 5 or 10. I've got a whole year to mull it over!

thanks for organising this. and delighted to see the love for brink and jaegir. slow-burn character driven epics and arguably the most interesting and most richly delineated female characters in the prog since halo jones.

Personally it was not the best Slaine series if read and I will almost rate it as one of the worse the exception is Davis wonderful painted art.

Start from the beginning, Saline Warriors Dawn https://shop.2000ad.com/catalogue/graphic-novels/slaine/XB166 and follow it in chronological order.

If you want the best Saline series it is the Horned God https://shop.2000ad.com/catalogue/graphic-novels/slaine/XB329A

I have read Slaine upto book of scars but not sure to pick the hardcovers up before the start of the new slaine this year or just wait for the ultimate collection to catch up since i am collecting it?

There has to be some mileage to an issue of Zarjaz featuring Judge Dread, Rouge Trooper, Tranny Rex, Match 1 and Saline The King.

You'd end up drawing some of it if I had my way!
