So here we are final week of Round 3 and quality here will set us up well for what's to come. There are some stunning ties here and a proper local derby to really add some flavour - I was so chuffed when this one was drawn as it's a right good tie (you’ll only have to wait until Tuesday…). Round 4 will be coming soon (Monday next week I imagine!) and it's going to start to get super tough… or tougher at least!

Two new favourites in play here, both with only one full series, both with at least one more on the way. So I guess we have an easy metric to help you decide this one. Which of the two are you looking forward to returning the most? Full Tilt Boogie, which struggled to see off Vector 13, is the sort of thrill the prog needs to shake things up and pull the prog into a new age and a new audience. DreadNoughts, who took out the mighty Paul Grist’s Demon Nic could therefore be said to be backward looking, reflecting on past glories, but is far from it feeling absolutely relevant and as current as FTB in the context of the time it's being created. Which one are you happiest to see back?

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 30th June and the winner gets a place in Round 4 (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

Curious one this. VCs straddles the ages, being one of the early strips that provided nostalgia for the Prog as it reformed to an early entrant from Rebellion’s time. You can vote for all, either, or whatever aspect and folks did in numbers in an easy victory over Citi-Def. Dandridge is in danger of being a forgotten curio, never quite gripping folks enough to become a long running thrill, but fun while it was here and enjoyed enough to see off Urban Strike and Orlok. Different class of opponent for this one though.

Phase 3 had always been my favourite, but on a recent read

Phase 2

shone.

If the Prog has tauight us anything it that a story needs to be as long as it needs to be. Classics can be 1 offs, 4 parts or 12 or more. Let the creative team determine.

Just tell me a story I do not care about the length

Very interesting idea and great first post (and second looking at the Trans Time one). Be interesting to see how big this gets as when you start to think about it there is a LOT of iconography in the thrills.

Count me in.

VOTING CLOSED

Oh this was closer than I thought, so much so that I was preparing my call and it was a tough one. Could I see past my love of the first Skizz, Jim Baikie art and how much I enjoy the other two books, all be it less than 1... I'm  not sure I would have been able to... In the end however I didn't need to make that final gut wrenching decision as Dash Decent, though he fell in the much more one sided tie finished today go some consolation as his final vote decided this and

Skizz

man it into Round 4, flipp' neck.

VOTING CLOSED

Well despite nobel support from Funt Solo and our very own Dash Decent there was going the thrill Dash Decent could do here and quick as you like

Meltdown Man

will be looking to throw another thrill in the vats in Round 4.

Seriously, why are they bothering with Samantha Slade at all? It's the worst thing to appear in the prog since Rebellion took over.

How quickly we forget Stalag 666!

Or Dead Man Walking!

I've said it before and I'll say it again I like Dead Man Walking. Don't listen to Bishop it's not like he has any to say on the matte...

...the want...

...writer you say...

...oh...

Well I still like it...

OHHHH let's hope this one does big numbers as this feels like the sort of end game the Regenes are after. Everything crossed for this one.

Oh wow I'd all but given up on this coming out. That's FANTASTIC news!

Space magic or sci-fi regene science  type stuff. Fudge it. They have for long enough.

13
Ohhh this one could swing on final day votes. I think I see one thrill just peaking ahead but I could well be wrong. Vote today and I'll reveal all tomorrow.

14
I'll be honest when I do the draw ties that haven't finished I entered into the draw as x vs y so I have a track of both possible winners. I didn't both here. Closes tomorrow morning.

Thought Durham Red would have put up more of a fight here. The strip has had some many rich and interesting interations, from classic Carlos and Alan Grant, Mark Harrison, then Mark Harrison and Dabnett himself and the recent hard western thrillers (my personal fav) but no. The power of a new Dabnett strip dominated here. Backed up with Rich Elson's muscular art

Feral and Foe

will be bickering into Round 4
