Just to clarify my Number 1 pick. It's American Reaper.

I actually consider American Reaper and The Reaper Files to be the same strip.

Cheers

That is how I have it as well. American Reaper is your number 1. I have The Reaper Files as a separate entry. If you want to recast your vote please go ahead  :thumbsup:

I’m kinda with Kev on this one. Reaper Files isn’t really a separate series IMO. It’s just an extension to the main series. Similarly when you come to the main Prog vote, how are you going to handle Downlode Tales? To me it’s not separate to Sinister Dexter and is an inherent part of the Sinister Dexter story. It was only called Downlode Tales to maintain the pretence that the boys had gone their separate ways.

Do anyone know how the numbering worked on the original Megs ?

Starts off simple: issues 1-20

Then it got renamed as Volume 2, starting from issue 1 again. (Because it moved from monthly to fortnightly)
Barney lists these as 2.01-2.83...

when it got rebooted again as Volume 3, starting at 1 again (Because they were hoping to get new readers with an Issue 1 who'd just seen and fallen in love with the 1995 movie)
on Barney as 3.01-3.79...

when it got rebooted again as Volume 4 (Harder to explain exactly why, but this was about a year into the Rebellion era, and basically this is the point when the Meg got really good again).

On Barney as 4.01-4.18

...and finally starts with the original numbering again with issue 200.

(oh and for the record I only omitted Insurrection because I didn't want to double-up on Dabnett. My own rules just for fun!)

I actually am fine with the Reaper Files as part of American Reaper so if we have a vote for Reaper File it will be credited against American Reaper.

Just one minor correction. Meg 4.18 is the 200th issue. The re-numbering started with issue #201.

Faster than Usain Bolt out of the blocks to another world record we have one thrill that is setting a blistering pace. The fairy tale about the tortoise and the hare will stay a fairy tale nothing is gonna catch this trailblazer. 

So, after the first week of voting we have 44 thrills receiving votes. The top two positions I believe is almost done and dusted.  A five-way battle will determine whom takes number 3.

Remember vote as many times as you want but only the last vote counts. Voting close next Sunday the 12th of July.
