A time of infinite Punisher analogues!

Colin the problem is that somehow somebody reverted the votes from the alternative reality where all answers are Zenith although they voted for Button Man. So you have to reverse count them Zenith=Button Man and button Man=Button Man

Yeah but when I do that I'll release I'm trapped in a bubble universe bound in a prism constituted of endless tournaments. When I see the black sun that is the eye of the Elder Gods stirring into that infinite prison I'll realise I've been manipulated and tripped and I should have kept the vote the same...

The tension on this one is killing me. I want to do a count, but from a quick (well ish I was a little more studied in my flick through the votes) the vote appears to be going only one way. Its close but I think the current leader might be too far ahead to catch with final day votes (?). Get um in and I'll count them up in the morning.

Thought this one would be closer... but its not. We'll come to more on that tomorrow morning when I announce the result. Until then vote, vote, vote away.

VOTING CLOSED

The Dead is kickin' ass in this tournement. Its not had easy draws and its more than holding its own. I'm a little surprised Lobster Random didn't make this closer. Its a thrill I adore and was certianly bold and different. Folks have spoken however and the weird vibes of

The Dead

have out bizarred Lobster and will see it stepping into the other side of Round 4.

VOTING CLOSED

I was always a little uneasy with having Bogie Man (and a couple of others) in the tournament. Most of its excellent work was outside Tharg's kingdom and I imagine it was hard to seperate when voting (?). That said Prog 1 stories are doing well, as might be expected and Harlem Heroes gets a strong vote. Whether this strong showing for debut stories continues will come under much tougher examination this round though, but for now

Harlem Heroes (Original)

Will be punching balls in Round 4.

The child’s a massive Horrible Histories fan and loves Corpse Talk, so this seems like a cert to get her watching something new. I barely see the comic these days, alas. Very occasionally, I get to flick through a new issue if it’s lurking and sneak a read of the latest slice of Jamie Smart madness.

Speaking of Jamie Smart, if you have kids and an hour of spare time on the 29th, this: https://www.storymuseum.org.uk/whats-on/jamie-smart-live-stream-draw-along

Damn the boy is has a football game at 11 we won't be able watch.

Books & Comics / Re: Shift Comic - new UK anthology

I still think the comic is struggling to live up to the truly excellent first line-up. Each time one of the openers drifts out, or reaches its conclusion good material comes in, no doubt, but its never quite as good. With Soulwind gone now we only have Shifter - which must be nearing a thrilling conclusion soon (?) and To the Death - SOOOOO energetic this time wow.

Now I have to qualify this a little as for the first time this issue includes something I've read before in Elephantmen - War Toys.  Now I must say I really enjoyed it here. Last time I read War Toys I was working my way through an almost complete digital run of the series (first 60ish issues) and the main series was really running out of steam for me and I had flipped from loving it to really struggling to get through it. That was a couple of years ago now and I've not returned to it since. Reading this now, in isolation and away from the main series it really is brilliant. Helped immensely by the glorious art of Moritat.

The Ghost in the Sword by Liam Sharp ... wasn't as good, nor interesting as it wanted to be and fell a little flat for me. Muscle Memory was sharp and energetic and I'm looking forward to more. The Millsworld stuff and  Sweep and Clean I wasn't a big fan of.

This is still a great package and amazing value for money. Its just a little in the shadows of its own high standards.

The smell is deeper and richer too now, that has got even better!

Film & TV / Re: Last movie watched...

EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE ....
A multiversal double, with one being among the most exocentrically joyous, fun and charming movies I'm likely to see all year filled with exquisite action sequences and tight (if at times over edited) choreography, endearing performances, and a  weirdly layered pay off to oft egged familial trauma narrative.


Really want to see that film! Everything you say confirms I should.

Quite the tussle here I thought it was going the way of The Dead but looking quickly through maybe Lobster Random is doing better than I thought? Last day votes could decide this one go pop your vote in today if you haven't yet.

Nostalgia is a powerful thing... or is it just a great villain? Who knows this is heading just one way at the moment, but with a day to go who knows. Get um in and I'll count um up in the morning.

Well if Week 1 broke you into what Round 3 could be like Week 2 will show you its extremes with possibly the tie of the Round coming in (though there is one later that possibly tops even this). Eyes will be blinding, hair will be torn out before this week is over…

Bit of a cool down from yesterday… very interesting one mind. Strontium DogS (DOGS, with an ‘S’ the ‘S’ is very important) pulled off another shock (well to me at least) in Round 2, toppling Tharg’s 3rillers, did not see that coming. Counterfeit Girl hasn’t much form so far, only having faced Brit-Cit Babes and brushed them aside BUT it has form elsewhere having won Broodbliks Sideshow vote for the best none Bad Company Milligan story and that’s no mean feit (see what I did there, do ya) at all.

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 Sunday 22st May 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

Bit of a cool down from yesterday… a bit at least.  Bendatti Vedatta has had a relatively easy run to Round 3 taking down Walter the Wobot and then London Falling, not exactly shining lights of thrillpower. Low Life is in a different league and has taken down Nemesis already… ok all be it Nemesis and Deadlock. But this only goes one way surely???

VOTING CLOSED

Again as with tie 9 I thought this one would be closer. Neuronauts is a lean, tight thrill and works really well. Though what's not to love about kinda Blackblood reboot and rampaging Romans I guess and as such

Aquila

Is driving its gladius into Round 4.

VOTING CLOSED

Thought this one would be closer. Al Ewing's work haven't fared as well as I imagined. First Zombo, now Damnation Station, not a thrill I love but I thought it had a strong fan base. Mazeworld came in as favourite but did not think would dominate quite like this, an easy win and

Mazeworld

will be taxing the channels of your mind in Round 4
