Leave Slippery Jim where he is, but by all means look to other properties to adapt.

The Murderbot Diaries, by Martha Wells would seem like a perfect 2000AD fit. And a massive wide-screen graphic novel of Rendezvous With Rama drawn by Culbard would be astonishing.

I'm going to vote for the current book, running in the prog now. Brink is such a masterpiece, it seems to get better- the tension building- with every episode. Therefore the experience of reading Book 2 was more enjoyable than Book 1, and Book 3 likewise improved on 2. It's absolutely the best exercise in episodic storytelling and worldbuilding that we've seen in 2000AD since at least Nikolai Dante. And it is probably better than that.

And, weirdly, it translated perfectly to audio- which I don't think was true of any of the other strips they adapted. I await a Netflix adaptation with a sense of inevitability.

Sancho Panzer. It may be time to admit that MACH 1 was a bit rubbish.

I liked Defoe more at the start than at the end, and I remember being impressed with The Inspectre at a time when the Meg wasn't all that great.

I will vote The Inspectre, largely because of the disappointment I felt with how Defoe ended up going.

It's definitely Stronty, but that's no shame on Absalom- which is a lovely thing.

Capaldi.

The most Doctorish of Doctors, and cruelly overlooked.

I'd go for a Thrax series, and the special a while back showed the promise of a solo Wulf run.

So we will say Wulf.

It's Meltdown Man, isn't it? However much Dash Decent makes me laugh still.

I have absolutely no love for Steve Yeowell's art I'm afraid- but of his work, I preferred it when there wasn't an ink shortage down his way. Blackhawk is okay, I guess, but I wins this vote for me.

Invasion.

Thistlebone is alright, but doesn't really do a whole lot for me I'm afraid.

Colin, you're an utter bastard! Two of my favourite strips? How am I supposed to choose?

Brink. Because I want Brink to win this contest overall.

I remember very little about Dry Run, other than it was awful. But then, I thought that about Junker too, and on rereading that in the QC Miniseries was pleasantly surprised to find out that while it was indeed dreadful, it was also ridiculously funny too. Just not in a good way, or by design.

So it has to be The Taxidermist.
