I am enjoying Kingmaker as well - although sometimes the larger combat scenes go a bit Mark Harrison with all the glowing helmets. (Caveat: I enjoy the work of Leigh Gallagher and Mark Harrison, but sometimes things get a bit confusing. On the other hand, it's very dynamic work.)  I imagine if the concept (LOTR meets space opera) didn't float your boat, it would be a difficult thrill to love. I've never been able to even slightly smirk at Space Balls (while being a big fan of, say, Blazing Saddles).

Anyway, this one's an easy win for The Alienist - even if it's just for that melty-head seance scene. We need the next installment of this one, Tharg. (The fact that ST is still in the running produced the same "huh?" feelings I get every time another series appears in the prog. At some point, flogging a dead horse crosses over from pointless to revolting to surely there's a law against this?)

Skip Tracer. I’m not that bothered about either but seeing Skippy advance through the contest via some jammy draws against lower league opposition might be fun.

Wow, that's a damning assessment there! But it's kind of how I feel about Kingmaker, which is evidently popular enough to get the full trade collection treatment.

agreed.

Skip Tracer has it support, but not surprisingly Alienist is dominating here give Skips rep. The result will be in the morning so you can still vote today.

VOTING CLOSED

That The Alienist didn't haveit all its own way in this one, against possible the most derided thrill in modern memory is a worrying sign for how well it will do going forward. That said it did get a confident win so who know.... well we will soon enough. For now

The Alienist

'mans up' to make it into Round 3.
