Week 3 of Round 3 is ‘One and Done’ week with no fewer than 3 of the surviving Future Shockesque stories appearing. They all have very interesting ties and … well we’ll see. In my mind though, intriguing as those clashes are, is a modern masters face-off that is one of the ties of the Round for me, not everyone I imagine, but for me…

Two modern classics in one of the ties of the round for me. Kingdom has got Whet with Carver Hale in Round 2. Proteus Vex saw off Zippy Couriers. Now they meet in a tie that will leave at least one Tournament organiser in tears.

errrr I never right these in a rush in the morning and it does rather feel like this one deserves a good write up, or at least better than I'm going to give it now! Rogue Trooper flag bearer of the prog bested Harlem Heroes (Reboot) just using Helm... errr Time Twisters home of some of the truly great done in one and many of one A. Moore of Northamptons finest shorts. Most of them even the rubbish one would have seen of Moonrunner as they did in Round 2 mind... best I can do in a rush!

Twisted dark tales on offer here. Hookjaw conquered Silo at the box office and Strange and Darke caused controversy (in my head) by removing Hershey from the tournament. But which one has bitten off more than it can chew?

We’ll start off with one of the ‘Done in Ones’ the granddaddy of them all, the Poppa One Parter, vanquisher of Shirmura. For all its history, for their fundamental part in the Prog can they see off one of the truly great thrills, one which managed to spurn an even great Thrill (Loooook I have to do this I get to spout my opinion okay!) Insurrection has already seen off Abelard Snazz. Tough tie this one…

Nice punny tagline.

Good Prog behind it.

Dredd as you were nicely cranking tension, typically superb Niemand interactions between character and a place fantastic story. I'm not sure I've actually declared this but Niemand is now clearly the best none Wagner Dredd writer we have and have had.

Brink Speaking of the best this is just that. Another quite brilliant episode. Who is following Maslow?

Hope more innovation and imagination with the way this story is presented and its a damned good story too, so - fantastic!

Dexter - the only real misstep this week. This has been a fantastic story and then this week fight and over. I assume something is being set up with the moths - I guess the final weapon to defeat the AI (I'm normally wrong about these things!) - but for this story I wanted more than the energetic slam, bam over ending.

Fiends origins and emergances - brilliant fun.

So yeah a bit of a step back from last week, mainly due to Dexter, which bad, just not the high standard I'd set for it!

Well if Week 1 broke you into what Round 3 could be like Week 2 will show you its extremes with possibly the tie of the Round coming in (though there is one later that possibly tops even this). Eyes will be blinding, hair will be torn out before this week is over…

Bit of a cool down from yesterday… very interesting one mind. Strontium DogS (DOGS, with an ‘S’ the ‘S’ is very important) pulled off another shock (well to me at least) in Round 2, toppling Tharg’s 3rillers, did not see that coming. Counterfeit Girl hasn’t much form so far, only having faced Brit-Cit Babes and brushed them aside BUT it has form elsewhere having won Broodbliks Sideshow vote for the best none Bad Company Milligan story and that’s no mean feit (see what I did there, do ya) at all.

Bit of a cool down from yesterday… a bit at least.  Bendatti Vedatta has had a relatively easy run to Round 3 taking down Walter the Wobot and then London Falling, not exactly shining lights of thrillpower. Low Life is in a different league and has taken down Nemesis already… ok all be it Nemesis and Deadlock. But this only goes one way surely???

I mean we wouldn’t have expected this sort of tie until the Quarters maybe. Two astonishing thrills, both of which could have gone a long, long way in the tourney. But one will fall here. Zenith already has form in tough match-ups having taken down Harry 20 on the High Rock in Round 2. Button Man had a much easier time taking out that other hitman (well Button man is kinda a hitman… kinda) in Grey Suit. If this isn’t the tie of the Round it's damned close and one of the toughest calls that will have to be made… maybe…

This one is Tough, both are favourites of mine, but we’ll have to get used to that and the other tie today…. Well… that’s a level up again… Tyranny Rex had to take down the The Visible Man to get this far. Leviathan has already had a very tough tussle to get to this round having been drawn against Grey Area in Round 2. Neither of these deserves to go out in the Round, however one must…

The Dead took down Dragon Tales in Round 1 but then followed that up with what is possibly the surprise of the Tournament so far when it took out modern favourite Zombo. That sort of form must be leaving Lobster Random feeling nervous, especially since it didn’t have its own way again low level opponent Time Flies in Round 2. I would have called this only one way, form suggests I could well be backing the wrong horse… well if that horse has diminishing numbers of crustacean claws and a fetish for mechanical love.

A tie more about what not to consider. So Harlem Heroes - which put Tales from the Doghouse in the… well doghouse - doesn’t include Inferno. Bogie Man, even though we should only be thinking about the story that first appeared in the Meg - saw off Necrophim in a close fought tie. So yeah put all the rest aside when you make the call between

Prog / Prog 2282 - Out for Blood
« on: 16 May, 2022, 08:38:26 PM »
Nice little Prog - to say we started the year with such a stella line-up, most of which has moved on and we still have a Prog of this quality is quite something!

Dredd turning into a really nice little story this. Love all the insights into what the Titan surgury does to folks. The idea of not being able to laugh is curiously chilling. All moving along at a good pace, but all with room to breathe and explore. Just brilliant stuff.

As is Hope love the way it plays with the way it presents its tale is fantastic and what a tale it tells as well. Superb

Brink well however good those strips are they ain't Brink. What a chilling episode after some nice relaxing intimate character moments the horror just hits home all the more. Just staggeringly good.

Dexter I mean this is good, good comics too. Dabnett has really upped his game on Bulletopia of late. I don't know if these current strips have been written knowing the change in format for this series (it has changed right?) and if so it shows. nice self contained (one assumes) tales built onto the ongoing premise but with space to do its own thing and here the horror set up of the first episode pays off in spades.

Fiends wraps things up really nicely thank you very much. That this is the 'weakest' strip here, as opposed to the best thing as it might well be in many a prog is testament to how good the Prog is at the moment.

Just a blister Prog and a lovely letterer from one of our finest to boot.

A Grennie face-off here. Necronauts has already taken down Timequake and Dredd… well Cadet Dredd at least. Aquila slugged it out with The Vigilant. So both face a much tougher challenge here. Both show the best of their writer - with great art teams as well. The swords and cricket bats are drawn…

So we’ll start with a tough warm up. Two good mid-tier thrills I’d suggest. Damnation Station is still an unknown quantity having only bested Future Shorts in Round 2 coming head to head with Mazeworld who has only faced Janus. So both will have more to prove as the tourney goes on; but only one will survive this first test.

Well a very significant week in the tournament as we enter Round 3 after the seemingly unending Round two. We’re down to the last 128 thrills and from here the quality will step up,  but the choices start to get harder. But the lovely thing about this round is there is still plenty of room for mis-matches…

Final tie of the week is a gift for these intros. Brigand Doom came out of David D’Antiquis lush, deep Shadows to see off Disaster 1990 and then proved Kelly’s Eye wasn’t immortal in Round 2. Shadows bring un doom to Bonjo and under-rated sports classic Second City Blues…

…look I said a gift not one you’d want!
