Sideshow Vote II: Simply the best ā€“ The Magnificent 7

<< < (2/3) > >>

credo:
Are we classifying the original run at the full deal, or as split between the Volgan War/forming the team stage and the original Mars mission (Book 1 and Book 2, although that feels like a more recent way of splitting things to me)?

Love both (with Black Hole a close third), but think the forming the team part (with the Straw Dogs! The Knights Martial! Mongrol!) is probably best.

Also have a huge soft spot for the 'getting the band back together' run of issues in Nemesis Book 4.

Aaron A Aardvark:
I really like The Black Hole but when I think about the Warriors I remember Blackblood being shot through the head and Deadlock riding up that pyramid. The Meknificent Seven had the coolest line-up, too.

Iā€™m counting both together, as they ran unbroken in the Prog.

AlexF:
Some of the individual stories from the opening run are my favourites (The Red Death, first meeting with Mongrol and The Mess), and certainly the basica premise and various bits of Black Hole are the most exciting - but I think as a whole story that feels consistent, has intriguing ideas, a good dose of silliness, and just outstanding art all the way through...
Khronikles of Khaos. 1990s 2000AD forever!

With that hat on I can almost understand suggesting that the Volgan War is the best... almost. I know I really like 2 of the 4 books but can never remember which 2, which isn't a great sign.

Rogue Judge:
I totally agree. The Volgan Wars was the first ABC warriors  story I read. I was excited to read more 'Warriors but nothing else stood upto the enjoyment of Volgan wars. Meknificant Seven is awesome and close, and the rest isn't my cup o' tea.
