    Welcome to the OT Comic Crew. Btw, if you have AIM, you can post it and join us in our little OTCC chat room.

    I can't say I have a favorite arc, I'd just say all of the arcs from The Walking Dead. :mamoru:

    Thanks. I'll think about it.

    I liked the AoA story line.

    Daredevil #191 (Feb 1983), Roulette. Easily the best comic I've ever read and Frank Miller at his finest (too bad he fell off, way off later). Pick it up or read a scan.

    Yay, another favorites thread! I think my favorite story arc of all time was X-Statix vs. the Avengers. They tackled the issues of racism very well, suffered by Anarchist at the hands of Captain America. They also covered the social issue of nudism and sensitivity with Iron Man vs. Orphan. The Antman vs. Venus Dee Milo and Vivisector vs. Hawkeye bits weren't too bad either. But the real treat of the story was Doop vs. Thor. Doop was fighting for his own brain, which Thor was holding from him! But here's the kicker: Doop nearly won. Without his brain. This was the moment that finally catapulted Doop into higher fame than he achieved with teh "wtf" moment when he axe-murdered Corkscrew or the 1 second-long story where he had to save the X-Statix when he sucked them into his mind because he popped a pimple (I'd say this was the best, but it's hardly a story arc at only a 1 second length).

    I'd have to say Batman's whole No Man's Land arc. But then again, that spanned lots of comics and writers.

    I also really liked Mark Waid's Doctor Doom story arc on Fantastic Four.

    No Man's Land was awesome because it made Batgirl. That is all. Haha, not really. I think it was very well conceived. In fact, when Katrina happened, that's what first popped to mind. Luthor is a bastard!

    I know of no man's land and what it was about slightly but why did it remind you of Katrina (except for the very obvious---disaster wise)? Was there something else like the way people reacted?

    :big grin:

    Just the disaster and the fact that Bendis was the architect of the hurricane.
