I've never been a fan of the extremely obvious cultural references as named characters thing: so Johnny Woo and Stan Lee (as characters in 2000 AD) leave me cold. I never minded Ro-Jaws & Hammerstein because, as a kid, I'd never heard of Rodgers & Hammerstein. Ignorance is bliss.

Deadlock, for me. (Plus, it was a good series.)

Colin, you’re doing a great job, I’m really enjoying this whole thing.

Deadlock.  Henry Flint is always incredible and this one was just an art tour de force.

Deadlock was quite excellent.

Just today to get your votes in here and I'll count this one up in the morning. Looks like we know which way this one is going.

VOTING CLOSED

No real surprise here, for all my issues with Deadlock, that I have to say don't seem echoed in many of the comments here, it was always going to take this one. An exciting epilogue to one of 2000ad's corner stone strips was set up to topple a character that seems to be forgotten by many. So

Deadlock

makes it into Round 2.
