…And tell me what you’ve won!
With 10 votes and the preference of our ultimate tiebreaker, it’s Matthew’s Astro-Canadian crowd-pleaser “Phosphorescent Beetles” that takes first prize, close behind him with another 10 votes is Jonathan’s think-piece about kung fu on the Moon “Zerojidu”, and rounding out the top three with 9 votes is Kieran’s acid-drenched throwback to Sixties SF “Mind Traders Of The Milky Way”. All most excellent offerings, fellows!

Hard Boiled, by Frank Miller and Geoff Darrow; The Spirit: Vol. I, by Darwyn Cooke, J. Bone, and Dave Stewart
