It was last years Sci-fi special. Seems to be out of print in the shop - though sure you can get it elsewhere if you don't do digital.

This one's my hill to die on, because Incident on Mayger Minor is my absolute favourite SD story.

I'll be fighting right there with you.

All you need do is vote for your favourite between:

Just reply in this thread naming your favourite of these two stories at the beginning of your post (or use Bold tags so I can spot it easy) and say what you like about these wonderful stories after that.

Match ends early on the morning of Friday 30th July and the winner (I’ll count up who gets the most votes basically) gets 3 points towards qualifying… huh…

… there’s a spreadsheet to make following easier… if you fancy. If not, don’t worry just VOTE!!!!

What on Earth is all this?

Why on Tharg’s Earth head are we doing this?

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

He illustrated the famous-ish Doctor Ooh strip in Issue 161.

Never heard of that just looked it up - every day is a school day - thanks for the pointer Corinthian.

Massive well done to everyone. That's 'our' Dunc isn't it - very much deserved lovely chap.

Also nice to see Own pick up a prize too.

Thanks as ever to Eamonn for all his magnificent efforts.

And Thomas if you ever look to pass on that Tharg head picture...

VOTING CLOSED

Unlike the other tie today this one wasn't close and from start to end votes were being dropped on Warzone! to squish it flat. Winner was clearly:

The Doc Quince Case

Doc Quince Case     3   9
The Bad Boys Bust 0  0
Warzone!                  0  -9

VOTING CLOSED

This one started clsoe. The two stories trading blows equally. We had our first really tense exciting clash with no one story dominating... well that was until the final third were I'm.... sorry... to say... ahem.... Sorry case dropped away and the result went to

Smiley's World

Smiley's World   3   4
Mutie's Luck       0   0
Sorry Case          0   -4

VOTING CLOSED

We have our first qualifier for the Tourney proper - the big question is can they keep match fit as they will have a long wait.
What I've loved most about this one (well aside all the worry over whether I'd even got all the stories right!!!) was the diversity of voting. As ever Tharg's minions make it clear there are no right answers when it comes to 2000ad.

Strontium Dog: Annual 1982 - 0 votes

Incident at the Back o' Beyond - 2 votes

The Beast of Milton Keynes - 10 votes

Fever - 0 votes

Complaint - 4 votes

Incident at the End of the World - 3 votes

Top Dog - 32 votes

Assault on Trigol 3 - 1 vote

The Town that Died of Shame - 4 votes

Incident at the Birth of the Universe - 2 votes

The Sad Case (Prog 2001) - 7 votes

Valhalla - 5 votes and a quick rebuff!

So no surprise that the winner and first entrant into the tourney proper is the wonderful Top Dog whi was just one vote short of having the same number of votes as all other entrants put together - and in part that was due to some folks knowing it was going to win and spreading the love!

The Beast of Milton Keynes makes it into a play off which we can worry about later....

Another quiet BUT don't worry you still have a day to vote. So roll up, roll up and vote ya vote ya vote shy non-voters. I'll count up in the morning.

My vote. Well this one is easy. I think in part to The Best of 2000ad Monthly and my reading history meaning I missed a lot of Johnny on first release, the 4 part Strontium Dog shorts form the basis of what I expect from a Stront story - I was surprised how few there actually was when I came to organise this. No doubt for me The Doc Quince Case is quintessial Strontium Dog and on that basis:

The Doc Quince Case

Its quite quiet on this on but you still have a day to go if you haven't voted yet. I'll close this one off in the morning.

My vote. Well I remember loving the fact there was a different artist on Strontium Dog when I first read this, but being a little annoyed that Colin MacNeil, understandably tried ape Carlos. Looking back as Alex F said Bob is just a little too irriating to get the sympathy his story needs so for me its:

Smiley's World

VOTING CLOSED

To be honest I thought this would be the first vote woth some real fight in it but that me just projecting my views on these two and in the end there wasn't much competition.
