    Default The Stick Awards II: Second Edition (#0001 - #0010)

    Welcome to the inaugural thread of The Stick Awards II: Second Edition!

    The Sticks Awards are handed out to the best strips of all time as chosen by our fellow Playgrounders.

    For full details, please check out the main thread here.

    To read more about the original Stick Awards, created by Nazzo, the 102nd, please read his thread here.

    To vote in this thread, simply state which comic of the ten listed is your favorite. Bolding the number of the comic (Like this) helps it stand out.

    Voting for this week will close on May 25th, 4am EDT time. Any votes made after that will NOT count toward the totals.

    So what are you waiting for? Show the world (or at least this forum) which comic regins supreme!

    9.

    Almost voted for 7 -- it is the funniest of the bunch. But, I have to go for #9 for being such a great setup. The brick joke of Elan whipping that belt out again in the inn was one of my favorite moments in the whole comic.

    The seeds of so many running jokes here; V's familiar, Elan's bard song, Spot checks, the 10 gold bet. Thor nearly got my vote in strip 7, and number 2 is comedy gold too. But I'll pick

    Strip 10

    And, I must say, it's quite pleasant seeing the old artwork. Don't get me wrong: I like the newer style, but there's something so simple about the old style that I really enjoy.
    Thank you Ceika for the wonderful Avatar avatar!

    I like 9 because of the pay off later, but the funniest of the bunch is 8 :)

    You know, the old art style doen't do much for me. Which is weird, since I've been reading since near enough to the start. I guess I've gotten used to how much better rich has gotten at this over the course of almost 900 comics.

    I respectfully beg to differ, as they also are beginning to establish the main characters and their personalities: i.e. 4 - Elan, 7 - Durkon, 8 - Haley, 10 - V...

    And specifically for this reason, I vote for number 4, also the funniest of the bunch.

    oh, and they also create many long-running gags, as Sam79 said.

    PS Thanks Porthos for the thread.

    Really? My reaction was kind of the opposite. I was more like "wow. And I used to think this art was good." Which it is, but the newer stuff blows it away.

    A-yup. It's the defending champion. Can't say how close it was though, as the original thread was lost to one of the thread purges.
