Last of Round 2 and we’ve ending with a hammer blow. Two absolute fan favourites here, but only one will progress.

I’ve written 16 of these bloody things in the last couple of weeks so I hope you’ll forgive if I just say forget The Filth, forget Shadowpact or Ant Man’s Big Christmas. Only work for Tharg to be consider, though discuss what you like. BANG

And we’re done - HOOOZZZAAAHHHH

Alas we have to pick our favourite and to do so just pop the name of the art droid you’d most like to go through to the Quarter Finals, but please add anything else you’d like to say as well.

Last days for starting Round 2 votes today and we end with a very interesting one in the Classic Tourney.

I think by now we know each other well enough that I can just cut to the chase now, we can be straight with each other, right. So getting right to it, not dilly dallying around, hammering the nail home with the not faffing around hammer. Screwing the screw right in using the blunt and very Yorkshire screwdriver. No messing, dawdling, aimless wondering or nowt like that. See the target and shooting straight for it. Bish bash bosh point made. I’m here to tell you … oh hold on I’ve lost my threa now… something about… errr Excalibur, Outsiders any of that Marvel stuff not counting. Some stuff about errrr not giving a fig about Beckerharrison being your delight… Tharg only… or some such. Arh forget it...

Alas we have to pick our favourite and to do so just pop the name of the art droid you’d most like to go through to the Quarter Finals, but please add anything else you’d like to say as well.

It's just occurred to me that I drew three Simons in a row in this tourney… well I find it fascinating even if you don’t care!

Anyway please sit down I’ve got something I need to discuss and I think it's best just to just come out and say it. You know that The Royals and how much you adore the art in that. And you know how you are always going on about how Simon Fraser’s work on Doctor Who is some of the best ever. Well… we don’t care. Oh sure take about it, but I implore you don’t consider it when voting. For the sake of all we hold dear, to give this relationship any chance please just focus on work for Tharg. Please I beg you.

Alas we have to pick our favourite and to do so just pop the name of the art droid you’d most like to go through to the Quarter Finals, but please add anything else you’d like to say as well.

If there is one thing, just one thing I’ve learnt from this tourney its how to spell Belardinelli (please tell me I got this right) and just as I do so he hits up against Bolland - damn!

Anyway would it be weird if I went all meta here and tried to parody myself parodying someone / something else to basically just say I don’t care if you can see beyond the links of Bruce Patterson and think that Camelot 3000 is an artist wonder, nor do we wish to discuss the best colouring on Killing Joke. To try to find a new level of humour (ahem) to mock how I’d say ignore early works in Battle, Valiant and others and later pictures of bearded maestros found in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles … or should I just give it to you straight that we are only to consider works for Tharg here?

Thank you Prime Minister and can I just add a big thank you for allowing me to lick your flaccid arse and further my career however morally repugnant it is of me to do so.

To answer the question in relation to the Current Tourney I would like to refer you to the graph I showed earlier. Now if you look at this what you see clearly is Patrick Goddard and Simon Davis may have done some excellent work outside of Tharg’s domain. If you look at the trend you will also see that Simon Davis is a famed portrait artist and indeed in a folk Rock Band. What you must remember however is if we take these into account we will [REPEAT SAME BLAND AND MEANINGLESS RALLYING CRY AS PRIME MINISTER] and so therefore we must ask you to follow the science, even though we have claimed this has been done while overseeing excess death well above any other country in Europe and just consider works for Tharg.

I will now return you to the Prime Minister who has now hopefully put my life peerage in place.

And we're back...

Thank you bearing with us over the weekend I errm had to conduct a number of extramarital liaisons and by colleague had to visit some distant beauty spot NOT ermm for his wife's birthday but don’t erm worry I will get rid of him in a few months anyway... but we are errr now ready to take your questions. And the first one is from… err let me see… Hopelessly drilled into asking a benign question of little consequence from Bolton. And they ermm ask. “Both Brett Ewins and Dave Gibbons have done some seriously seminal work in comics other than those done for Tharg. Should I consider these when voting?”

Well first can I say thank you for asking this. A truly excellent question, even though we can all by now rattle off the answer in moments ourselves. It errmmm gives me the opportunity to sound in control and to have some form of ermm intellect.

The answer is alas no. No one is more sad than I that we must not, MUST NOT think of either Watchmen, Skeemer, Green Lantern or indeed Johnny Nemo when voting here, but we must stick to this and only think of the work for Tharg to protect the NHS or some other rallying cry which every we are using this week.

I will now hand over to some sycophantic lackey who will basically just parrot what I say here about the Current tourney, but with a more data erm driven reasoning.

Thank you Prime Minister for the update on the Classic Art Droid Tourney. I will now bring you up to date on the ongoing work on the Current Art Droid Tourney. The vaccine has now undergone extensive trials and we are confident that if taken it will safely exclude all thoughts of either Marvel and DC work by Leigh Gallagher. We have also looked at the data and found no reference when voting to any Yeowell work on Invisibles, Sebastian O or even Zoids.

We can now say with confidence the vaccine is safe and will ensure only works by Tharg will be considered when voting in this tournament. We would ask for patience while we work on the logistics of rolling this out vaccine though if you think you are at any increased risks of voting inappropriately to please consult your GP.

Last votes this morning before a quick weekend break so we can cacth breathe.

Thank you for joining me today for the briefing on the state of the Classic Art Droids tourney. No one is sadder than I to have say that we are moving the 2000ad forum into Round 2 - which of course means that we can no longer consider work from outside Tharg's realm and there can be no mixing of decisions between comic companies.

So to be clear I ask all people living on the forum to do their civic duty and when voting not to come within 2 metres of any work Cam Kennedy may have done for Battle. I need to remind you all that Simon Bisley’s Lobo is now entirely prohibited and must not be considered here.

I appreciate that this is very difficult for you all. But to get through this tourney we all have to pull together for one final push (before the next one) to get this voting back under control and centred entirely on work for Tharg. I will shortly hand over to Doctor We’re claiming to follow the science, despite literally tens of thousands of deaths, who will talk about the Current Art Droid Tourney. 

Alas we have to pick our favourite and to do so just pop the name of the art droid you’d most like to go through to the Quarter Finals, but please add anything else you’d like to say as well.

His name was David, he drew comicsl
With Bat by Design and Marvel Zorro he drew with flare
He would merengue and do the cha-cha
In American comics he a star

Henry always drew above par
Across the crowded board, he worked on Haunted Tank issue four
He was young when he did Omega Men and other
They both did so much more?
In the Art Droid Tourney (Tourney)
The hottest Rigelian you think of is here (here)
In the Art Droid Tourney (Tourney)
Work for Tharg is our passion always the fashion
In the Art Tourney
We think of no more… (art tourney)

You think that’s cool… fine, fine. I mean I hear ya BUT WE DON’T CARE - it's Tharg we’re talking about here boy THARG anything else is going to get you into trouble man. BIG trouble.

For some reason I find this draw fascinating - two droid utterly different and yet...

Also when it comes to my reflections on what work they have done outside 2000ad both draw an utter blank for me and search does improve things a little. LOOK if you happen to love anything these two have done outside Tharg’s Garden of Green Greatness just forget about it already and only vote on like covers and Indigo Prime and Mother Earth (!) and Angelic etc etc...

You want it tough I’ll give you tough. BOOM!

Look into my eyes. Look deep into my eyes. As you decide who your favourite you will forget McMahon’s Sonic The Comic work - however good it is. You will not remember Arthur Ranson did wonderful work on Dangermouse. When you wake you will think only of their work for Tharg. Three, two, one SNAP. You are back in the room and may now vote...

This round I’m adding little nods to my favourite stuff that we can’t vote for by the artists as it's work outside of Tharg’s realm. Well I was shocked to realise I don’t really know any Mark Harrison work beyond Tharg’s kingdom… I mean I looked it up and there’s not much out there I can find - in comics certainly. Weird… So anyway as you decide between two modern masters you be diverting your eyes from that filthy webcomic The Traveller (do look after it seems very good!) and awesome Lazarus Churchyard stuff!

Last time we, in the Current Tournament we had to make a call between the two definitive (can you have two definitive anythings???) Dante artists Simon Fraser of John Burn. Well not to be out done the Classic side pulled this one out the bag. Does this boil down to you favourite Nemesis artist? Was Talbots’ Book 4 the absolute peak of the series, or does O’Neill’s Book 3 top it?... well actually you might like Book 2 but that’s a tough decision for another day. Remember is this town we don’t book no Marshal Law or Luther Arkwright...no dfor today we have this one to make on Tharg’s work alone.

Well the Current draw wasn’t going to be out done by the Classic and so also threw up one of the favourites in the first heat. Likewise it then gave you a choice between them and another absolute fan fav just to prove that anything classic Art Droid discussion can do Current art Droid discussion can match… and more? I personally think the decision between Brendan McCarthy and Colin MacNeil is as tough as anything either side could come up with. In these parts not decision can be based on no Rogan Josh, nor no Dark Knight Returns.
