In the first of what should be *many* stupid 400th strip celebrations... ;-) Let us know what you think is the best panel from all of Avalon to date.<P>I pick: <A HREF="http://www.avalonhigh.com/d/20010523.html">2:178.4</A>. It has a really cool focus/blur effect, and seems ominous.<P>Alrighty then, go nuts... NOW. :-)<P>JOSH.

And don't forget that it was that panel which had us analysing the probability that Ryan didn't buy a yearbook, which only became more convoluted from there...

Mine would probably be <A HREF="http://www.avalonhigh.com/d/20000320.html" TARGET=_blank>1:96.4</A>, if only for Ryan's line...<P>I may edit this post later if I remember a different one.

Definitely <A HREF="http://www.avalonhigh.com/d/20010117.html" TARGET=_blank>2:88.2</A>.
Although...<A HREF="http://www.avalonhigh.com/d/19991119.html" TARGET=_blank>1:10.4</A> is pretty neat, too. I wish *MY* high-school had taught Fourier series.

Well, I guess mine would be <A HREF="http://www.avalonhigh.com/d/20000922.html" TARGET=_blank>2:10</A>. Ryan's last line made me go back and read the entire archive for the first time over that weekend, which in turn made me an Avalon freak from then on.<P>As for jokes, <A HREF="http://www.avalonhigh.com/d/20000904.html" TARGET=_blank>1:211</A>. Don't know why, but Ceiliah and Joe's reaction in the last panel always gets me.<P>For storylines, gotta go with <A HREF="http://www.avalonhigh.com/w/20000508.html" TARGET=_blank>Ah, Spring</A>. Brings back memories of watching Road Runner cartoons when I was a kid. Which explains a lot 'bout me.<P>"Hey! NOT NICE!"<P>------------------

I've always loved the Ah, Spring strips, filler that they are, especially <A HREF="http://www.avalonhigh.com/d/20000511.html" TARGET=_blank>1:134.4</A>. But <A HREF="http://www.avalonhigh.com/d/20000908.html" TARGET=_blank>1:215.3</A> rocks too.<P>One favorite in Avalon? Impossible.<P>------------------

With some insight on the Canadian political system, I personally thought <A HREF="http://www.avalonhigh.com/d/20001117.html" TARGET=_blank>2:50.2</A> was gold.<P>But I can never look down <A HREF="http://www.avalonhigh.com/d/20000328.html" TARGET=_blank>1:102.1</A> for the plug <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/cool.gif"> <P>O-<P>------------------

I'm goin to scour the archives later, but the first thing that came to mind was a certain strip from the New Year's Resolved storyline, which I commensed to search. Now of course I'll put in the disclaimer that I love Avalon in it's entirety, and I love this story line, and I love this strip, but this is my chosen panel: <a href="http://www.avalonhigh.com/d/20001228.html">2:74.4</a>. More to come later?<P>Peace,

...despite the almost complete impossibility of picking just *one* panel, I'll vote for <A HREF="http://www.avalonhigh.com/d/20010213.html" TARGET=_blank>2:107.4</A><P>Possibly because I've been in a similiar situation... <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/biggrin.gif"><P>(<I>...you do realise this is just a cunning plot to get us to re-read the archives again, right?

I agree with the people who're saying its close to impossible to pick one panel you like the most - the entire comic is just so good.<P>But as to the most memorable panel, I'd have to say <A HREF="http://www.avalonhigh.com/d/20010105.html" TARGET=_blank>2:80.4</A>. That one was quite a surprise when I first read it. It seems to be a major turning point in the story, too - it looks like Ryan has just then given up completely on Phoebe.

But of course, for me that would be: <A HREF="http://www.avalonhigh.com/comics/avalon20000324.gif" TARGET=_blank>1:100</A>. In other words: The Barq's Strip!!!<P>Why is that one my favourite besides the humour? Because that was the first Avalon comic I ever saw. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/smile.gif">

I bid <A HREF="http://www.avalonhigh.com/comics/avalon20010426.gif">2:154.2</A> and <A HREF="http://www.avalonhigh.com/comics/avalon20010502.gif">2:158.3</A> a close second both on pure visual meaning.<P>OI. These things have been renumbered since I archived them. No fair trick.

I too, must vote for <A HREF="http://www.avalonhigh.com/d/20010105.html" TARGET=_blank>2:80.4.</A> Not only is it drawn differently than almost all of the other panels in the series, it is incredibly satisfying to read. It's warm, but not sappy. It read like a resolution, but it was the start of a whole other twist.<P>Still, a close second is <A HREF="http://www.avalonhigh.com/d/19991224.html" TARGET=_blank>1.35.3</A> when Ceilidh attempts to use Cecil as her cat's-paw...<P>T.W.

Sorry Josh, I don't know the number, but the Halloween one, with my all-time favourite dailogue between Joe and Ceilidh :
"Quiet, Twinkletoes". Soon to be anAvalon the CCG rare card.<P>The next would be Helene falling into the creek after trying so hard to cope with springtime showers. You said it was pure filler - I thought it was pure simple brilliance.<P>After all :

Hmmm, this is really, *really* difficult...<P>But I'd probably go for either 2:21.3 (I just love her expression...) or 2:22.3.<P>Oh and the Helene filler strips were great! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/smile.gif"><P>And from volume I, I'd go for 1:28.4.<P>---

I enjoy the panel with Ceilidh whacking Joe (2:38:3) with the purse during halloween, Cecil knowing something (1:162:4)[Cecil just looks so... in that scene], and Glomp (2:137:4) is cool just for the Ceilidh weirdness.<P>Plus while it was a weird interlude I enjoyed Helene and the lightning.
