What If? The Edgiverse thrills had collided. Crisis on Infinite Edgiverse starts here as thrills move via the Temple of Mithras to collide and Jack Dancer encounters London’s dandy lord of crime.

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.

Match ends early on the morning of Friday 23rd September and the winner gets a place … well nowt this is just for fun.

What on Earth is ALL of this?

Hold on I thought all this nonsense was over? Well yeah but… see well I’ve explained that

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!

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.

The Red Seas - mostly because of the hollow earth story with the dinosaurs.

Haven't read much of either of these, but I'd rather read more Red Seas.

Loved the first two series of Red Seas. Haven't really loved any series of Stickleback. But then there's the art. And I've found Steve Yeowell to go from an artist whose worked I looked forward to each week to one who leaves me a bit bored. And it was his tenure on the Red Seas wot did it. D'Israeli, meanwhile, mixes up his styles so often that's it's always thrilling, and perhaps never more so than the mad greytone magic he weaves on Stickleback.

So yeah, Red Seas is the surperior story, but I'd rather spend 6 pages each week drinking in Stickleback.
