Hop over to the 2000AD forums and cast your vote but not before you have perused the ECBT crew’s selection of the top three covers that graced the Megazine in 2015.
First place and way out in front was Alex Ronald on Meg 356. In a year of great Lawmaster covers this one led the pack.
Steven: “There are lots of covers with Dredd on his Lawmaster, but this one by Alex Ronald is one of my all-time favorites.”
Rich: “Far and away my fave meg cover of the year. Iconic Dredd. Have yet to see a cover by Alex Ronald that hasn’t brought out the best in the character it highlights.”
John: “Dredd on his Lawmaster. Just look at the lean and the power of the beast as the Judges power towards a domestic in Wales.”
Stacey: “ Love the movement and colours and Dreddyness of this.”
After that there was a tie for second place. First up was Phil Winslade’s depiction of Marshall Lawson on 363
Iz: “One of the best new(ish) characters in the Meg, in my opinion. She is awesome. This cover is simple and effective. Love Winslade’s work on this whole strip, and the cover doesn’t disappoint.”
Luke: “Phil Winslade’s Lawless, just cool as hell, her pose says ‘take no prisoners’. “
Rich: “My choice may be slightly coloured by my love of the strip it’s presenting but this is just beautiful. Perfect mash-up of futuristic 2000AD and western.
Mick: “Best strip in The Meg this year, and maybe my favorite Dreddworld spin-off in general. Love this cover, love Winslade’s art. It’s all love here, love!”
Also tied for second it’s double jeopardy for Alex Ronald with his seriously spooky image on Meg 362.
Luke: “A haunting (literally) cover by Alex Ronald. Spooky and atmospheric.”
Steven: “The only thing Alex Ronald does better than robots is sexy women. A horrific image that jumps off the cover!”
Now we wait to see how the forum vote comes out.
In the meantime here are the little “Pick-tograms” of how we all voted, with first pick on the left.
That’s all folks. Let us know your picks in the comments section. And congratulations to Tharg’s art-droids for another epic year of great covers on both Prog and Meg.
