Well if Week 1 was a gentle phasing in of quality from Round 1 with some pretty ropey ties, Week 2 hits us right between the eyes with the other end of things. This is the week that if I’d been feeling a little fast and loose with the draw I could have opened with. There’s some mouth watering ties and some decisions that will make your eyes water. THIS is what Round 2 is all about…

Intestinauts is a fantastic little - in every way - new thrill, that kicked off in the Regened (the original FCBD Special)- but we forget when we flag strips that transferred from those sprankling new ventures into the Prog ‘proper’. I reckon it had a good chance in Round 2… until… well as they say, as we welcome the Wizard from Northampton to the tourney, Alan Moore knows the score, do you?:

Just reply in this thread naming your favourite thrill of these two series 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 Saturday 29th January  and the winner gets a place in Round 3 (of 9!!!).

What on Earth is ALL of this?

For those that need ‘um and can be bothered to follow ‘um there’s some simple rules

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

Skizz
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.

Poor Intestinauts, so many thrills they could've charmed their way past, but they'd have to be tackling SkIIIzz on its own to have any chance here. It's a fun thrill, but not as good as SkIIzz and certainly not Skizz.

Intestinauts is great fun, visually inventive, and yeah better than Skizz 3. Don’t think I’ve read Skizz 2. I’d happily take more Intestinauts and no more Skizz, however, I’m still voting

Skizz, despite the sequels, which are dreadful.

Last time I read them, SkIIzz was much better than I remembered though interest dropped significantly for SkIIIzz.

First prog I read* was the introduction of Skizz and the first prog I actually bought was the last episode of the original series.

* it's complicated - had a batch of progs given to me and if I put them in order before reading then it would have been my first read.

A gut punch for the Intestinauts, but Skizz

Tough break for the amusing Intestinauts, but Skizz soothes that tummy ache with some low-fat yogurt.

Intestinauts is good fun, but only Alan Moore could mix Boys from the Blackstuff with ET and make it work. Skizz for me. And the sequels weren't that bad.
