What if the draw had just gone differently? It was all thriller, not filler in the latter round, but while that lead to some astonishing ties it also left some untested and so we’ll wrap all this up with some of those top tier match-ups we just missed out on. Simply put , I think, many wanted. Have at it…

b]To Vote[/b] 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.

I could have subtitled this - which of Colin’s favourite thrills does the board prefer? I mean I might change my top two if asked on different days BUT these two will never be far from my thoughts when I decide this. So Tharg’s two greatest thrills face off…

VOTING CLOSED

Have to say Hookjaw is fun but doesn't really live up to it thrilling concept and as said doesn't have Ramon Sola enough. Shako is tighter, sharper and simply packs more punch and as such

Shako

Rips into the shark and chows down.

VOTING CLOSED

For me Charley's War takes this in part for the reasons some don't think its all that. It deals with all the political, horrorific, utterly human things it does so honestly and blisteringly while being a boy own adventure. At the time that must have been was mind blowing (I was a little too young to appreciate it beyond the adventure) and in retrospect become an act of such genius. It juxaposes the naivety and gung-ho innocence of the war as adventure mindset with the cold, hard, terrifying reality. Just an astonishing thing to read.

Strontium Dog, with its own boy own adventure elements, all be they developed, at its best can match Charley but the series is inconsistant and its best now seen often enough (always, well almost always good when not excellent) and so I'm a little surprised by this. Though this is of course a 2000ad crowd and so it shouldn't be a shock to say

Strontium Dog

takes this

We're heading towards peace talks here and when they are concluded we will have a winner and the spoils will be shared. Get your vote in now it could well make a difference.

An alphabetical gulf divides these two, but which one is our favourite?

First up we had many Dabnett Derbies but this one evaded us… until now…

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

Company of Wolves

Some films you shouldn't go back to. Loved this in the day and haven't seen it for years so was looking forward to revisiting having stumbled across it on ITV HUB. I mean watching something via ITV Hub affords it some sympathy but not enough.

I mean its clear what its trying to do. It is visually interesting in place. Ultimatey the characters and ideas are just a bit flat andf obivous for a modern viewer (cos I'm so modern). I mean the character being flat you could forgive on the basis its a dream of a fairy tale and so my working assumption has always been that was the intend. The trouble is they are still flat. It tries lots of ideas and in doing that doesn't really develop many beyond a superficial level.

Its not terrible its just not the film my memory wanted it to be.

What if we’d bent the rules? What if we’d allowed votes between specific books of different series? This was the first one that sprang to my mind as an interesting way to play with that idea. Yeah there are so many more it could have been but we can’t be here that much more!

What if we’d bent the rules? Why just two thrills face to face? Why not three. And if we’re doing that can you think of three better thrills to match up than these stinks from the early days? Fun match up this one.

What if we’d bent the rules? Hey we could have included Action stories into the tourney. If we had we’d have all wanted to see his battle of the great beasts surely. What if Shako and Hookjaw (the original not it magnificent mystical ‘sequel’) had clashed. Which was the best animal?
