Week 6 and, brace yourself, we get over the half way marker in Round 1… yes when I said this was the biggest of these things yet I wasn’t messing about! We’re not even half way… in Round 1… and Round 2 is bigger than Round 1 before you get your hopes up… we’re in for the long haul here folks!

Early comics work, from the small body of work that Paul Cornell produced for Tharg, vs relatively early work from the massive body of work produced by Dan Adnett. Some interesting art to reflect on as well.

Two typically one page thrills here, but there the similarities end surely? Klep slumbered over from the nether-regions of Tornado. Sooner or Later fired from the psychedelic mindscape of Milligan and McCarthy, but...

Great example of why this tourney is so interesting. These thrills feel at opposite ends of the thrill spectrum to me, in terms of tone at least. One very dour and earnest, the other while dark madcap and chaotic. All that matters of course - aside from your pony - is...

Shall we have a sweepstake on how long it takes before someone makes a joke about Trash being the most aptly named series in the comics rich history?... does that count as making a joke about Trash being the most aptly named strip in the comic’s rich history??? Mind look at that Art! The art was so lush. Big fan of Second City Blues as well - flying skateboard horse men and all and it too had great art so…

Looooookk we discussed this a couple of times - I know Metalzoic is a fudge. I KNOW it shouldn’t be here based on my own rules of entry BUT just about everyone who discussed it agreed exceptions need to be made for this most 2000ad of none qualifying thrills… oh and Harry Kipling something something...

Tricky one to compare this as they are clearly such different things BUT that’s not stopped us before and won’t stop us now right… one day I might run an utterly random Tourney with ties like Tom Frame’s lettering vs The cover of Prog 451… sorry I’m getting distracted...

Week… eerrrr is anyone keeping count anymore? (well yes I am its 5) and you know what if I said Week 4 was a step up in quality, well I’d suggest this week is even better. See what you reckon...

As with John Wagner, so with John Smith - a trill to show that not everything he touches is gold here (well in my opinion at least). Thing is it's up against a movie that’s most 2000ad aspect is it had a cleaning robot in… well i guess that and a couple of gun-toting angels

Well we’ve had a Tax Consultant, why not an Accountant - makes sense to me. Add to that an early 2000ad invasion of Earth by… well Goblin type things as I recall. Cool robots, naff aliens, does Colony Earth off much else?

Once in a while John Wagner produces a thrill that reminds us he’s only human and as fallible of you and I. Teenage Tax Consultant is seen by many (well me then) as one such thrill. But then he’s up against a story about a man whose skin is invisible… nothing else … just invisible skin… weird...

I wanted to say both of these started as Future Shocks - then I realised they probably didn’t. So I checked and it turns out both of them actually did… so… Both these thrills started out as Future Shocks but went on to be their own thing. Only one came back recently.

One thrill drips with 90s action movie cliche. The other is about an over-sized Judge from Brit Cit - HA! See what I did there… do you… is anyone reading this… hello...

Is there a four part story that has had close to the impact as Tribal memories? It’s hard to remember one. Mind Space Spinner’s recent(ish) evaluation has really made me think about it as a series. So what can possibly stand a chance against a thrill like that… well surely Andy Diggle and Jock stand a good chance!

Two stories that deal with pretty horrible leads. So I guess the real question is do you prefer devil and ghouls or dinosaurs strapped with weaponry. As ever a question you only need ask when referring to 2000ad!

Just as you all start to get a little sick of voting on some sub-par thrills I’d dare to say week 4 of this Tourney actually has the strongest line-up so far. There’s some real corkers to wrap your head around and some tough decisions to make.

[Peak behind the scenes time] I write these things up in batches and the first one I did in this batch was Dept K vs Dash Decent - so it's fitting for me to end this batch on another one that spans GGC life time with one of our newest thrills Pandora P coming up against one of the oldest in the Prog in Death Planet… I mean for you the balance ain’t as that earlier match up was days ago… but allow me my indulgence if you will. After all all you need to worry about is...
