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

Yeah but Strontium Dog was just more fun to read. And for me that’s what comics are all about.
