So of course there's not room for everyone in this 32-droid line-up, but I wonder if in your 'Current' team your fingers slipped and you meant to type 'Milligan' instead of 'Hogan'??

Of course both people could be in either team, making it all a little fiddly. I'm still holding out for 'The Devil's Railroad' to appear out of the blue one day...

Man, I love 2000 AD. Aren't we lucky to have been on such a crazy ride?

I mean, what else is there to say? This, x1,000.

Not to prejudge a tournament, but my money's on Team Current to win the Solheim Cup quite comfortably. And that's even if one might consider listing P. Mills as a 'Team Classic' ringer, at least in 2021. Will you be doing that?

Oh totally. Beyond the Wall is terrific - as good as Garth ennis sequel was bad. But then Wagner conjured up Banzai Batallion so it's all good in the end.

Hey, who doesn't love an idiosyncratic list of top Dredd stories?
I've got a lot of time for this suggested list, Helter Skelter and all, for me the big 'missing' thing is that if he's talking about ANY Dredd story, one has to bung in, say, Case Files 6 or 9 to showcase a selection of shorter, typically funny but sometimes moving/thrilling tales.

Did even 2,000 people buy Armoured Gideon? Hope so! I want the rest of the series, please.

Brink and Brass Sun are two of my fave ever series, in large part because of Culbard's work. But based on sheer spectacle and that tingly feeling you get sometimes when you see certain images...
Cradlegrave, I'm looking mostly at you...

it's gonna swing Bagwell's way for me.

Phillips didn't have a huge impact on the Prog - the outrageous weirdness of Danzig's Inferno aside - but he was a truly big deal in the early days of the Meg: Armitage, Devlin Waugh, some awesome covers - did he even design the original logo? I mean, Davis is going to win partly on sheer volume of work, and also that he's bloody good at it, but let's not dismiss the one that got away...

Davis: 3, Phillips: 2

Flint 5, Williams 0 - my first whitewash I think. I do like Williams, especially on the VCs, but Flint is just astonishing, and in so many different styles over the years!

Like, Staz Johnson is THE guy you go to for a new Rogue Trooper story that feels like a classic era tale. But Cam Kennedy was the guy who perfected that look in the first place!!

I've actually worked with Staz on a few books in my day job and he's really great, his attention to period detail is superb. But by golly this is a tough draw.

It's definitely Mazeworld. Everyone knows that Bright Master Shanti Lanson (Judge Button) is Arthur Ranson's pen name.

Is it not the end of 'Beyond the Call of Duty'?
