And we’ve done it… we’ve made it… the final week of the seemingly unending Round 2. It amazes me that we’ve stayed the distance, not killed each other over the course of these last 16 weeks, our love persists and maybe we need to take a break before charging headlong into anything else? I mean this week ends on a doozy, maybe we should take a break there and reflect…. Orrrr….

…see ya Monday for Round 3!

The final thrill to be elevated from the Regened to Prog ‘proper’ in Round 2 against a curious Megazine story that had lovely art by Kev Cullen and one of the more intriguing leads ever to grace Tharg’s thrill-omelete … and that’s really saying something!

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 6th May and the winner gets a place in Round 3 (of 9!!!).

What on Earth is ALL of this?

For those that need ‘um and can be bothered to follow ‘um there’s some simple rules

Pandora Perfect
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.

I don't think Pandora Perfect is perfect but I wasn't a fan of Creep. Back to the Undercity with him!
You're a dark horse, Boots.

Creep was for me the epitome of annoying 1990s comics characters who were cooler and more powerful than anyone else just because the writer willed it so, with no explanation but more annoyingly not enough of a reason why such a character is interesting. But, you know, the art and setting genuinely were creepy.

Pandora Perfect is not my fave charming heist caper 2000AD thrill, but it is at least a very good version of that form, so it's gettin' my vote.

Closer so far than I would have ever imagined!

One of the best strips to come out of the Regened project: Pandora Perfect.

I couldn’t stand Creep at the time. On re-reading it in the UC, it was better than I recalled, with some suitably horrible art and nasty storytelling. But the ‘powers’ think AlexF noted irked for me then and now too.

Pandora Perfect was fantastic in Regened; and although the full series didn’t quite hit the same dizzy heights for me, it managed that extremely rare thing in 2000 AD: a humour strip I want to see more of.
