Tharg's 2021 in Review - Best 2000 AD strips (non-Dredd)
« on: 27 December, 2021, 03:10:48 PM »
Okay, here we go with the annual procession to victory by a huge margin by Dan Abnett's latest strip non-Dredd (and Cadet Dredd) 2000 AD strip of the year thread.

Please rank your favourite three 2000 AD strips from 2021, choosing from the list below. Your top choice will be awarded three points, your second choice two points and your third choice one point.

I've compiled the list from the prog breakdowns on the 2000 AD shop pages - please let me know if I've missed anything. According to my calculations there are 32 strips in the running this year, their numbers bolstered by Regened newcomers. Actually I was wondering if it might be worth running a separate poll for the Regened stories, so they get a chance against each other on a level playing field, so to speak? Feel free to start a voting thread if you agree!

I've grouped Future Shocks, Terror Tales and any other variation on one-shot stories together, but included the various 3rillers as separate strips. In an annoying volte-face from last last, I haven't included the strips which started in this year's Xmas prog. Don't worry, they're ongoing, so you'll get a chance to vote for them next year!

[Edit: sorry, should say - 'Visions of Deadworld' includes all Deadworld stories - I can't remember if they were all 'Visions']

I'd be grateful if you could only vote using this format (although obviously feel free to add comments!):

1. [Favourite strip - name of strip as in list]
2. [Second favourite strip - name of strip as in list]
3. [Third favourite strip - name of strip as in list]

No reverse orders please as it invites mistakes on my part. Also no joint rankings, thanks. My Excel skills are being tested to the limit as it is!

A reminder of previous years' results: 2020 | 2019 | 2018 | 2017

The result is in your hands! Get voting!

When I die, I want to die like my grandfather who died peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming like all the passengers in his car.

Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.
