A proper heavyweight tie.

So the choice is between an iconic strip from my childhood that is greatly responsible, along with a few others for me reading 2000AD at all, but which went seriously off the boil in later times versus the best example of a long running strip with a beginning, middle and a proper ending. One which along with Dredd and SinDex carried the Prog out of its lowest point into the modern era.

For me the highs in ABC Warriors are higher than Dante, and the lows lower.

I suspect Dante will come through this overall, but I’m voting for Steelhorn coming through the flame barrier to dispatch Marshall Volgod in Prog 127.

So ABC Warriors.

I somehow think Halo Jones isn’t quite up there with some of the other big guns and so this might be the last time I vote for it in this tournament, but for now it’s good enough.

The Out is an instant modern classic and has deservedly received a lot of love in this tournament. But Brink is better.

BTW given there is another Dabnett derby and Lawless is already in play, I can work out what it is.

It will also be interesting to see the final rounds the results versus the top 20 vote we had in the beginning  of lockdown

I’ve just looked it up and h the thrill I have as the nailed on favourite here was only second. And the only thrill I can realistically see challenging it was the winner.

So it might not be as clear cut as I’m expecting.

True-ish. I’m hard pressed to remember if it’s Nolan Blake or Blake Nolan.

I love Brink and think this series has been great. But I’m not sure about that final episode. In as much it doesn’t really wrap things up, it just sets things up for future series.

But I’m a way that’s what Brink does, I guess.

Also bit surprised no-one has mentioned that 2000AD has been running two strips for the last several weeks featuring lead characters called Nolan.

But then again the two strips in question could hardly be further apart in terms of quality.

Major Magnam - he didn't look anything like an ice cream.


But only one has names its characters with puns. Plus, I use "your mouth is full of wrong" in real life.
Venus Bluegenes?


Not to mention Rogue himself.


Early Anderson was one of the best things in the Prog, but zenith was even better.

One of the best complete stories in the Prog ever and career best art by Yeowell.

I feel I ought to like Rogue more than I do, as it’s managed to somehow assume ‘classic’ status.

Being an almost ever present strip for around 200 Progs, in what is often described as the classic era, tends to lead to that sort of classification, I guess.

I had always previously had the impression Rogue was regarded as an A list 2000AD character, but now I’m not so sure.

I’m a big Dan Abnett, but think he has series that are even better than  Kingdom.

So this is a close one. I’m going to go with Kingdom.

Not really a fan of either.

Ampney Crucis on the basis it took out one of my all time favourite Meg series in the Simping Detective in an earlier round.
