    611, I love Belkar's comeback. That's when things start going up for the order.

    612 for me. Belkar continues to be awesome, plus we get the triple-shot jokes of "it wouldn't kill us to let you in", "let me massage your feet", and "brainy pete". A great mix!

    611 for me too.

    The suspens for the three first panels, the awesome big panel "Alive, In danger, Belkar" with the shadow of the ranger, the first act of Mr. Scruffy as an animal companion, the kiss...

    Love it!

    So many spells. So few that can be cast while being grappled.

    That's not surprising; the actual title of the song is "I Need a Hero." So, you know, reference.

    611, 612, and 613 all have some great lines from Belkar. I'll go with 613, where he's in maximum "I'm a badass" snark mode to both his foes and his teammate.

    I should say that it was close for me. But in the end I had to go with my choice. I totally see why the others are more cool to others though

    This was not a tough choice. 612 has Brainy Pete, the maxims of Belkar and, above all, the awesomeness of CoL. 613 is one of the funniest in the series (Pickles... trade secret... awesome). And 615 wins almost entirely for Hank & co. (Though Icy Burst does help).

    However, once in a while I am compelled to reread OotS, not for the comic in general, but because one strip just draws me. 611 would be one of them. So it has my vote.

    612 for me, but a close call with the previous.

    Tough choice... I'm so torn, between the funny slaughter of 611, with all the jokes and the kiss, and 612, with the life-lesson on how to solve a man's problems.
    But yeah, 611.

    Tough choice, but 611 has always been a personal favorite for some reason, and I'm partial to that one. The others are great too though.
