I have always been a fan of Rogue but I believe taht Jaegir has now surpassed the original. If it was not for the Hit series I might have a different view but Jaegir it is
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.

Jaegir, by a country mile. Even as a kid, I didn’t think much of Rogue Trooper. That hasn’t changed. If anything, I think less of it these days.

I get that Jaegir is miles more sophisticated, but I confess I've never really got into it. Rogue Trooper was always my least fave as a young reader, but once I found the original Dave Gibbons episodes something clicked, and I've loved it ever since (well, except for the era from around Prog 360-604). I even read one of the novels, and I hardly ever read prose fiction!

Rogue Trooper.

A difficult one for me, as I never liked Rogue and Jaegir needs to be read all the way through for me to appreciate it, I think.

Jaegir. Because I do at least want to read it.

Very quiet here but with a day to go that could change. Get them votes in.

Whilst I don't like the direction which Atalia is currently heading - from a formerly moral, idealistic, sympathetic character, to becoming a brutal monster like her father - I'm holding out, in the hope that GR will steer her back to her former self. So, Jaegir wins this one for me.

VOTING CLOSED

Important result this one... well that's relative but! Rogue Trooper is one of the figure head strips strips. Popular, loved and (whisper it) not that well written. It looked great, but it really was the strip its reputation holds it to be. For a chunk of its life it was that popular - and that's not including the Friday stuff. Now the thing is this is personal opinion and there are a load of folks that disagree. On that basis I though it would take this. The modern sharp, smart story telling of Jaegir would get swept aside. But that was not the case. The superior writing of

Jaegir

takes this one.
