    Hmmm.. I'm torn between 666 and 669.

    Make it 669. I love how Roy thinks that in a world like our would be much less warfare...

    Not as epic as the last bunch. My vote goes to 670, for the little things like Elan's reaction to Haley, Haley's reaction to the word "initiative", O-Chul's "one saving throw at a time", and Team Peregrine.

    They're all a little on the slow side, what with being denouement and all, but I'll throw my lot in on 666.

    670 taught me the word denouement, but I'm going to have to go with 666. I love the sunset panel and the interactions between Haley and Roy are great.

    668. I can't really explain it but I just like the flow of the comic.

    They're mostly exposition than comedy. Nonetheless, #667 gets for Durkon's wisdom.
