Bojemoi! After totting the numbers up and seeing the trend, I really wasn’t expecting this result. But, yeah, I imagine it’s an easy prediction which way the final will go (and, arguably, the post-final if that’ll end up pitting the winner against Dredd).

Still, I’m glad to see something other than Stront/Rogue/Sláine/Nemesis in the final, and it was good to see a properly modern strip (Lawless) make the final four.

From the Top 20 votes we had in 2020, this was the top 8:

Nemesis the Warlock
Strontium Dog (Alpha)
Nikolai Dante
Slaine
Halo Jones
ABC Warriors
Zenith
Brink
When I die, I want to die like my grandfather who died peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming like all the passengers in his car.

Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

Saline was a victim of the draw this time while, imho, lawless had a pretty comfortable path till the semi with Strontium Dog.

Brink (stickleback, the out) and kingdom (proteus vex, rogue, sinDex) did a lot of work blasting out potential heavy hitters for such ‘new’ strips.
If I'd known it was harmless I would have killed it myself.

Worth noting that Lawless isn't in Brookbliks list as that vote covered just 2000ad stories so we don't have a reference there.

Lawless run to the semi's was

Samizdat Squad   Chimpsky's Law   Mazeworld   Thistlebone   Firekind   Brink

I think its tricky to call that easy, though obviously folks can have different views and there were clearly different routes. I think the comments on the Strontium Dog vote kinda reveal that Lawless, thought beaten, got to the semi on merit of it being a great strip. Could it have been knocked out earlier if it'd come across a Slaine, ABCs we'll never know...

except, maybe...

I think Lawless is a worthy top 4 strip and I am sure would have knockout most off the "stronger" candidates out.
