Either Sin City or Day of Chaos.

Percival's style just isn't for me I'm afraid. Even if he wasn't up against one of the most expressive artists ever: you can feel the blubbery bits popping out of Torquemada in book IV!

Percival 0 - 5 Talbot

Nothing wrong with Lynch’s art at all but it still feels more the sum of its influences than its own thing. McMahon got bored of doing some of the best comic art ever and invented Howler. Which was even better.

Taylor 2 - 3 Redondo

Inspired by another thread, I dug out the Let’s Eat Grandma album from a couple of years ago. Still good: Donnie Darko.

I am glad that there is someone who disliked self-indulgent, pretentious Donnie Darko.
Impossible as it is to rebut such a cogent argument, I must confess that your silver tongue has swayed me to your way of of thinking. Tell me now, if you would deem to stoop, your thoughts on the subtle ouvre of Milius?
Don't be mean! Any film that needs a director's cut to explain its plot is mince.
You probably wouldn’t have liked it anyway but this is definitely where you’ve gone wrong. The Director’s Cut is notoriously shite and generally taken as evidence (alongside his next film) that the director himself didn’t understand what made the film good in the first place.

For what it’s worth, I really enjoyed the film at the time but haven’t seen it for at least ten years and my tastes and tolerances for certain things have changed a lot. On the other hand, I still love all sorts of pretentious guff.

I have ordered a Stainless Steel Rat... was worried I would miss out
Wasn't going to bother with this and then I saw the magic words: "including the stunning colour centre spreads as they originally appeared in 2000 AD"

That's 16 years ago.
Pffft. Give it time.

Oh that got me thinking and without going to Barney is that Devlin Waugh?
It is.

Intestinauts the surprise stand-out Thrill for me this week. Something quite exceptional about the way Pye's art on this series can be so busy and full of details without seeming cluttered.

I'm pencilling in a reread of My Life with the Zoom Call Cult for the near future but my first impression is that things just sort of happened without anything really happening and that was intentional.

Interesting choice (even for a webshop exclusive).  For myself I'd pick a different cover if we were going down that route - Prog 400, where King Carlos reappropriated a layout stolen from Russ Heath.
Whereas I'd go for the first ... for President poster cover but both were on my bedroom wall at one point.

An interesting one this. Two artists that I don't have any strong feelings about at all. Going for Burns simply because I love Dante so much.

Burns 2 - 3 Doherty.

Firekind is all-time classic stuff but it's such an anomaly as Marshall has never come close to that before or since while remaining a reliable artist. Brett Ewins big chunky bootprints are all over some of my favourite childhood Thrills.

Marshall 2 - 3 Ewins

Obviously, Bisley's ABC Warriors is like nothing else and I didn't much care for MacNeil's early work. However, Simon's flame quickly fizzled out under the weight of its own hype while Colin has spent the last twenty restless years getting better and better.

MacNeil 4 - 1 Bisley

Can it really be eighteen years since the last time Tharg stuck a badger on the cover?

I'm curious to know if more people routinely sent in those voting coupons than posted on the 'Prog/Meg' threads on this board, which more or less hold the same data.
I never sent one in and this is my 9,527th post on this forum. Case closed.
