: Forum’s Favourite Thrill - Snapshot vs Tribal memories - Round 1 Heat 34
: Colin YNWA 22 November, 2021, 06:32:04 AM
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...

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!

Which most rattles your thrill-receptors:

Snapshot - more info (http://www.2000ad.org/?zone=thrill&page=profiles&choice=SNAPSHOT)

Vs.

Tribal Memories - more info (http://www.2000ad.org/?zone=thrill&page=profiles&choice=TRIBAL)

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 Thursday 25th November and the winner gets a place in Round 2 (of 9!!!).

For those that need ‘um and can be bothered to follow ‘um there’s some simple rules (https://forums.2000ad.com/index.php?topic=48011.msg1070150#msg1070150)

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

Tribal Memories. in a heart beat. One of the most intelligent pieces of proper science fiction to ever appear in the prog.

Snapshot isn't bad, and is possibly the more coherent of the two. But Tribal Memories is just so much more interesting, from the idea of the story (for all that it's as much a copy of Brave New World as it as a riff on it) to the art style. A real shame that Tony 'Riot' Wright didn't do any more stuff for 200AD after this.

Tribal Memories all the way.

I don’t recall a single thing about Snapshot, but I re-read Tribal Memories now and again and it lodged in my brain. On that basis, Tribal Memories.

I think I'm in line with the crowd in that I think Snapshot is good and all, but am voting for Tribal Memories - one of those votes where it's a shame that one has to lose out.

What’s Snapshot? Tribal Memories anyway as it’s decent.

Snapshot (https://2kstages.github.io/AtoZ/Snapshot/data.html) starts strong, but goes a bit lamo potato in the third act. Tribal Memories (https://2kstages.github.io/AtoZ/TribalMemories/data.html) is a mini-classic from the archives - it has ... themes!

Tribal Memories without a shadow of a doubt.  It was brilliant.

Tribal Memories seems to have fostered the popular response I was expecting - just today to add to that or fight for Snapshots corner. I'll count up in the morning.

WHOOPS!!!! Thanks for the heads up Abelardsnazz - as I've said before that blurry eyed rush to get these out in the morning will lead to mistakes - SOOORRRYYYY!!!

VOTING CLOSED

Pretty straightforward this one and even a solid creative force as Andy Diggle and Jock can come close to stopping a little 4 parter from the 80s. That said it would be easy to dismiss Tribal Memories but for what it lacks in pages it more than makes up for in idea and absolutely fantastic delivery. Its a thrill that could go far in this tourney, well see how the draw treats it. As it is

Tribal Memories

makes it to Round 2 bearly breaking sweat.
