The Killing vs Top Dog - Bolt-01 Cup - Group 1 Game 1

So after so much faffling in the over complex qualifying we get down to the top end action as the last 16 face-off and we begin with 2 games from Group 1. As ever though...

All you need to worry about which is your favourite between:

The Killing - more info

Vs

Top Dog - more info

Just reply in this thread naming your favourite of these two stories 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 16th September and the winner (I’ll count up who gets the most votes basically) gets 3 points towards qualifying… huh…

… there’s a spreadsheet to make following easier… if you fancy. If not, don’t worry just VOTE!!!!

I’ve tried to explain the finals here.

What on Earth is ALL of this?

Why on Tharg’s Earth head are we doing this?

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

Oh and my ‘More info’ links… well I don’t say how much more and they get pretty wonky at times!

The Killing
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.

The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.

The Killing

Loved the seeing the interactions between Dredd and Johnny in Top Dog, and the fantastic MacNeil art...but the Killing is one of the best, Johnny and Wulf on top of their bounty hunting game!

Both great, but The Killing is Top Dog.

LAST DAY. So if you want to vote in this tough call now is the time to do it. I'll count up in the morning.

Tough one this I really enjoy The Killing. Its a striaght out cool action piece. There is however something so special about Top Dog. It could have been a trite exercise in throwing two characters (well three) together for the heck of it but the combination of art, wit and astonishing script meant to rose above that and earned every bit of the fun it gave us. So on that basis

Top Dog

The Killing. As much as Outlaw is my personal favourite, the Killing has to be the quintessential SD story.
