Word for this vote - PUNISHING

This time round rather than try to express the difficulty of each vote will be as ad nauseum I’ll just add a different synonym for difficult at the start of each vote in the Quarter Finals and you can make your own sentence from that.

Both of these have done some iconic - stella - covers BUT…

Colin MacNeil - more info

OR

Cliff Robinson - more info

...Alas we have to pick our favourite and to do so just pop the name of the art droid you’d most like to go through to the Semi Finals, but please add anything else you’d like to say as well.

This one will close and be counted on the morning of Thursday 28th January

What the hell is all this? Find out more about the Art Droid Tourneys and Quarter Finals

Who made the 32 in both tourneys?

Entrants in the Current Art Droids Tourney

Entrants in the Classic Art Droids Tourney

Rules for what they are worth

Anything else just ask and I’ll make something up.

The king off covers versus the go-to man:

Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.

Argh.. Both brilliant, both have produced some incredible work over the years... On balance I'm going with Colin MacNeil because of so many great stories - America, Mechanismo, Song of the Surfer, Insurrection, to name but a few. Not that I want to detract from Cliff's iconic covers though. Like I said, argh.

    • Futureshock'd: At least the pictures are nice.
Colin MacNeil

(Nobody does a Dredd Cover like Cliff tho.)
If I'd known it was harmless I would have killed it myself.

Cliff’s great but MacNeil is a legend. He’d be a strong contender for the classic crown too, except that we are fortunate to still have him drawing for us.

Colin MacNeil (but if it was limited to covers I'd go for Cliff).

Sorry, more one-sidedness from me - it's Colin McNeil isn't it.

MacNeil.

Cliff is rightly a legendary figure of progs past and present, an artist of vast technical and design chops; but Colin's contribution to the comic over the last 30 years is almost unparalleled, so my vote can only go one way.
