    Default The Sticks Awards 81-90

    Hi, and welcome to The Sticks Awards!

    The Sticks Awards are given to the best strips of all times, chosen by the polls here in the Playground. Each poll will have a group of 10 comics, chronologically chosen, and every hundred strips we'll have a "Best of the Hundred" poll, with the most voted strip of each previous poll.

    Each poll will have the duration of a week. Voters can only pick one choice. Links are provided for people to re-read the comics. This week's poll features comics #81 to #90.

    If you have any suggestions or comments, feel free to comment on this thread.

    Thanks for voting!

    It's gotta be #86. As soon as I looked at the comic, I was in fits of laughter over it.

    #82. Beats Pay-Per-View. Redcloak's initial reaction of absolute horror and then conversion to curiosity was amusing.

    84 had great drama, 86 and 87 were hilarious, and most of them were at least worth noting. A good group, but I have to go with 81. The last four panels still crack me up.
    Yup.

    Whaaa? First voter for #87? Not only is it hillarious (V's a half-camel!), but you gotta love the artwork in the last strip.

    A lot of these are good. But two of them are ones that still make me laugh a ton, even though I've read them many times:

    "Does it do expresso?" "No." "NEVER!"

    "I got a 4!"

    So I voted for the latter of the two, because it's the underdog of the two (and because Banjo already won last week's poll even though it didn't deserve to IMHO).

    Are these the funniest strips ever? Or the best in art quality, or other criteria? No. But they're both tip-top (IMHO) in the category of "most re-readable."

    #90. The ever-memorable "I GOT A 4!" combined with the 'listed INT score' joke at the beginning, and Plans A, B, & C at the end, makes for a very unique comic.

    Very closely followed by the numerous and hilarious invisibility jokes in #89. Quite a lot of contenders in this group, really.

    I should vote for 84. Not a joke to be found, but excellent powerful stuff and as much character development as Durkon ever got.

    So, why am tempted to vote for 86 instead? Could be because it's punchline is so perfectly delivered? Not till "test of the heart" has there been a rival to the traditional long setup / short punchline joke where punchline comes out of nowhere and yet fits like a glove.

    84 it is. Quite a feat of versatility for Giant to come out with two such different excellent strips just one away from each other.

    It's got to be First Church of Banjo, especially for "Banjo wisely believes that the consumer knows best how to spend his or her hard earned money". More proof that despite his mental deficiencies, in some ways Elan's a genius.

    Banjulhu and "I got a 4!" are strong contenders too, of course!
