The Megazine Rebellion Years Top 10 Series - Tournament
« on: 01 July, 2020, 04:34:26 AM »
You can now vote for your favourite thrills in the Meg during the Rebellion era (and hopefully to be continued for many, many more years).

How does it work?

1.   You select your top 10 series during the Rebellion Years. This is from Meg 3.61 publish on 1 January 2000 up until Meg 421 publish on 16 June 2020.

2.   Judge Dredd is not included but the Dredd movie series is included. The movie version I see as an alternative and not part of the Dredd-verse canon.

3.   Any reprints and that includes the floppies are not included. Series like Tank Girl are included for example.

4.   We again work with the same point system that was employed for the “The Rebellion Years Top 10 Series” tournament.

1 = 25 points
2 = 18 points
3 = 15 points
4 = 12 points
5 = 10 points
6 = 8 points
7 = 6 points
8 = 4 points
9 = 2 points
10 = 1 point

5.   You can vote as many times as you want but only the last vote counts.

How long will the tourney last?

You can cast your vote up until Sunday 12th of July

Applying my previous rules is extra hard in the Megazine! But here's me limiting myself to one strip per creator (with one exception), and no strips that started before the Rebellion years (roughly Meg 3.64, I think? At least, this is when Preacher reprints gave way to Strontium Dog reprints!).

1. Lawless (Abnett/Winslade)
2. Storm Warning (Moore+Reppion/Foster + Broxton)
3. Lilly McKenzie (Fraser)
4. Cursed Earth Koburn (Rennie + McConville / Ezquerra)
5. Numbercruncher (Spurrier/Holden)
6. Tales from the Black Museum (basically everyone has had a go at these, almost all excellent!)
7. Strange & Darke (Smith / McNeil)
8. Dredd (Wyatt+ DeCampi / Willsher + Flint + Davidson)
9. Dark Judges (Wagner + Hine / Percival)
10. Black Siddha (Mills + Davis)

so yeah, no room for Insurrection or any Devlin Waugh, and tough choice not to sling Angelic on there. I'm counting the recent Dark Judge stuff as new and different enough, but feel free to call me out on this cheat!

Black Siddha? Wasn’t that just reprint?

It was reprinted but the story ran as below:

Black Siddha (by Pat Mills and Simon Davis):
"Bad Karma" (in Judge Dredd Megazine #202-208, 2003)
"Kali Yuga" (in Judge Dredd Megazine #218-223, 2004)
"Return of the Jester" (in Judge Dredd Megazine #245-252, 2006)

I've left things like Armitage out because it'd take me to long to untangle which stories were pre- and post-Reb - same applies to Tank Girl - without digging them all out I wouldn't know where the line between reprinted from elsewhere and originally printed in the Meg is.
