Well I like 403, but at the penultimate hurdle it fell as being just a stock Dredd pose.

For your information, here are the standings of the above covers in the site's thrillpower ratings.

61 - 9.14 (n=22) 2nd place
204 - 8.94 (n=17) 6th place
403 - 8.75 (n=12) 15th place
626 - 8.00 (n=13)
987 - 8.00 (n=10)
1304 - 8.50 (n=36)

Over to Finland for the huffsta's score...
403 -proper Citiblocks,all the important bits of Dredd.

987 - all the important bits of Demarco

Group 1 - Impossible to choose. Randomly selecting 61.

Group 2 - Sorry Galen, 1304 gets it.

61-This is classic thrillpower!Shows how exciting tooth is/was.

626-It's simply a classic piece from a toothy highlight story IMHO.

61 and 626.

I'm a bit surprised by these choices, having not voted for either cover in previous rounds. But so many of my favourites have now been knocked out of contention.

Lovely as 1304 is (and I tried to obtain the original art off Jock at Blackpool without success), I don't think it's as good as the voting seems to indicate. A case of OK Computer syndrome (ie most popular recent choice bests greater choices by virtue of its current popularity)? All IMHO, of course.

Think that's more to do with the voting being engineered to stop us just picking loads of (technically better) earlier covers.
