Let’s say if it was McMahon I’d be raiding my penny jar despite 150 being a absolute wedge of cash.
Wouldn’t surprise me to see Rebellion doing the same for the McMahon equivalent that’s coming down the pipe.

Yeah looking at this I realised I'd not bought similar volumes for Eisner, Jeff Smith's Bone or David Mazzucchelli's Born Again, so I couldn't justify going for this.

Now if that McMahon volume ever came to light that would be a MUCH harder question...

I have to say- I really don't get any of this over-complex voting scheme at all. It's incredibly confusing and I never know for sure if I've voted on everything or not. I keep having to go through each thread to see if I've already voted or not.

It gets really tricky when folk start voting in threads that are 'closed' - 'I missed this vote but I would have gone for The Ragnarok Job'. Then suddenly you can have something like twelve voting threads all active, and basically have to go read each one to see if you've voted in it.

If we could add a nice bold addendum to the thread title - Voting closed - then it would help massively.

Hi folks sorry just read these comment properly. I have always been a little worried about doing a round robin tourney for just these reasons and alas I can't change the title I don't think.

I'll run this one as planned but consider whether the format works for any future tourneys I run.

Last day, last day, what ya gonne do... well vote if you haven't that's what. I'll count up in the morning.

Unlike the other vote this one has two thrills I really like and its a tough call. At the end of the day there's something about the simple blood and guts concept of the the earlier story and so on that basis:

The Killing

Anymore for anymore? This one has today to run and I'll count up in the morning. Get um in.

Have to say this vote doesn't really inspire me as neither is a thrill I'm massively fond of. Galaxy Killer was the strip finding its feet and The Stone Killers the period I feel the strip was peddling a little. In the end though The Stone Killers is down average Strontium but therefore still a good thrill and so on that basis:

The Stone Killers

I am a big fan off the Blake & Mortimer series.

Interestingly that's one of the few I've struggled with. I also didn't get on with IR$ and Crusader. Other than those the one's I've read have all been winners.

I've got Islandia vol.1 coming in the post,...

Its great.

... It's just a shame Cinebook's translation is written in awkward dialogue lacking any elegance. I'm assuming the original language version (as well as being uncensored) is better....

Yeah the translation are a bit flat and ackward at times. Especially when you think of books like Asterix and the translation (which I imagine has a MUCH bigger budget!) there.

There are also art changes to remove nudity which can be a little clumsy at times.

When did Robin Smith do a Judge Death story?

A few episodes of the first Anderson Psi Division story, Revenge (also known as The Four Dark Judges) - after Brett Ewins and before Cliff Robinson.
He did an episode or two of the Anderson story that's included. Was it between Ewins and Robinson (maybe after to finsh up I can't remember)

Edit: OR

If one man reads Cinebooks and reviews them on a forum does he make a sound?

Who cares.

What you should care about is Leo comics. I've just read the Antares cycle all 6 volumes over the last few nights and its really rather good. Kim Kellers reluctant adventures continue with the typical blend of fabulous ecosystems and 2001 alien science shapes and intrigue. Okay so Jedidiah, the religious fanatic is a bit cliche and two dimensional to say the least and he is used to rather hammer home the theme of the dangers of religion and in all honestly is an annoying distraction from the more interesting relationships and mysteries.

Its wonderful stuff.

Prog / Re: Prog 2243 – Terror From The Deep

Progged at last. And despite what appears to be the prevailing view here a good one in my eye.

Dredd is of course excellent. I do wonder if John Higgins doesn't like / get on with the new Robo-Judge design the way he kept it off panel. Utterly trival point but other than that this would just be more of the same ol' praise!

Skip Tracer now I accept it hard to argue with Indigo Prime's point about the fridging, on reflection it is pretty weak BUT I can kinda see some more potential here. Is the strip going to move into Lone Wolf and Cub territory - a psyhic Lone Wolf and Cub at that. I can really see some potential there. So I'll give this more rope and while this wasn't as strong as recent episodes it still much better than it was.

Department K look I think this was been brilliant. I really liked the ending and if we have The Fantastic Four and we got Galactus / Celestials and this is clearly been all very Kirby based I wonder if we're now moving onto a post Kirby Dark Phoenix Saga rift now. That I could live with. The ending really work, set up potential and I loved the post credit scene leading us into the next story. All in all a triumph for me this one.

Dexter I actually though this was pretty good. I am losing the will with Bulletopia after we were promised so much but this moves things on and calls back on elements clearly established to be drawn back on so happy with this in and of itself.

Aquila remains fantastic.

Yeah she would be fantastic and I can just imagine the heads exploding now too!

... if this thread is still open?

It is this one closes on Friday - don't worry that you have seen the stories before the qualifies are based on a round robin.

Look you can see the fun on this handy dandy spreadsheet
