Forum’s Favourite Thrill - Killer vs Blackhawk Round 2 Heat 02

(1/5) > >>

Colin YNWA:
Welcome to Round 2, week 1 . This is where things get really interesting. All the big hitters are in the draw and let me tell you there are some ties coming up that will get the hearts racing and the camera’s out for live coverage. They will cover acres of print on the back pages. There are also ties that will barely get mentioned on their local radio news summary. Week 1 however does feel a little like a warm up however. It hasn’t got any of the high profile draws I hoped it might to kick us off, but it does start to hint at what's to come…

Two new entrants in the 2nd tie of the round, though you have to wonder if Killer, one of the most generic and uninspiring (personal opinionTM) ‘thrills ever would have made its way through that round if it had been drawn. It comes up against a fondly remembered thrill that if you re-read you see just how bonkers it all was. A disjointed mess or an early classic?:

Killer - more info


Blackhawk - more info

Just reply in this thread naming your favourite thrill of these two series at the beginning of your post (or use Bold tags so I can spot it easily) and say what you like about these wonderful stories after that.

Match ends early on the morning of Thursday 20th January  and the winner gets a place in Round 3 (of 9!!!).

What on Earth is ALL of this?

For those that need ‘um and can be bothered to follow ‘um there’s some simple rules

Any questions, just ask as ever - and have FUN!



No argument here - Killer is weirdly bland for a strip about a drunken space gladiator with a cool face mask.
Blackhawk is never drunk and doesn't wear a cool mask, but his gladiator battles were way more fun, and the his soul gets sucked out and he goes on some seriously WEIRD adventures.
If I'm honest I rate his Roman Britain-bound adventures from Tornado better (which are in the collected edition), but they don't count here do they?
Still, the 2000AD portion of his strip is more than enough to disptach today's opponent.
