I can't, in all honesty, vote for any of them because I haven't enjoyed a single one to any great respect. I'd probably claim Full Tilt Boogie to be the "least worst" though.

Never been a fan of Rogue, but the HH reboot was an abomination. So, grudgingly, Rogue.

Keep it as it is. While the encyclopedia and the current Hawk The Slayer thing do absolutely nothing for me, I'm sorry to say, I like that it's a 'lucky dip'. While I could easily dig out the recent Hookjaw progs, I'm strangely looking forward to suddenly having a collected edition of sorts to peruse one rainy afternoon.

I should say 'non-prog reprint only please', because I have everything related to 2000AD upstairs in boxes and doubling up with limited space and only a couple of decades of life left seems stupid... but I really don't care. And sometimes, being "forced" to read complete strips ends in unexpected love blossoming (see Atavar, Outlier, etc).

Dreadnoughts because it was superb, and one of those few strips that suddenly justifies such a large portion of my life spent enjoying and thinking about a bunch of silly comics edited by a green alien.

Well, it's Meltdown Man isn't it? Poor old Stalag 666, I've never read a good word of review about it. I reread the whole thing a few years ago- but, even checking what I had said about it on Facebook to refresh my memory reveals... nothing. I made a post that I was reading it, and that I'd read it... but as to what I thought, zilch. Whether that says I was immediately distracted onto something else (very likely) or just found nothing worth saying... no idea. After all this time, and two reads, the first thing that comes to mind is that alleged incident with the excrement.

  One of those thrills which I do not mind reading but if it never gets another series, I will not miss it

The thing is- there must be a reason it's there. I sort-of trust the current Tharg not to fill the prog with "any old shit just to make up the page count" (though his actual judgement as to whether certain series and creators justify their inclusion has, as his run has gone on, been called into question), and Skip Tracer has proven to be mildly readable. I've never, er, skipped it, like I do some other strips in both the prog and Meg. And, I trust the writer to be "going somewhere with it"- which ties in with my trust of Tharg to only give us things he considers worth our time and effort. I always try to see what Tharg was thinking when he okayed it... and at times, I struggle with Skip. It confuses me as to why it gets recommissioned. I feel like another aspect of Tharg may have given it far stronger editorial input and dragged something more thrill-powered out of it. Maybe forced the inclusion of giant spiders or something- which is always guaranteed to up the enjoyment factor of anything. I don't know.

Breathing Space. Chimpskey's Law didn't really work for me as a series, but I love the character as part of the main Dredd strip.

Vector 13, always. Aside from a complete SiniDex there is no other 2000AD series that I want to see collected in some form. At this point, I'd take a floppy. Maybe it's because I have a passionate love of short-form weird tales, in whatever medium, as well as a love of The X-Files and those millennium-fear shows that grew up around during it, but V13 took a very tired old format (the FS/ TT) and gave it, temporarily, a shot of adrenaline. Best thing to come out of that period.

Full Tilt Boogie is... okay. Not hugely my thing though.

Oh blimey, Helltrekkers. If ever there was a strip crying out for a modern reboot, it's Helltrekkers. A series about the horrors of the Cursed Earth on a weekly basis, with a likeable but disposable cast- that s made for the prog. Maybe even Regened, actually. But only if it's as nasty and funny as the original and the stories that inspired it.

Yeah, has to be Nemesis doesn't it? It's an exceptional design for a character, in a strip absolutely brimming with exceptional designs. We were a bit spoiled as kids with all this stuff, weren't we?

Maelstrom- which wins by default, as I've never been a fan of any of Wagner's 'comedy' strips.
