    Man, this is difficult. This arc is filled with awesomeness.

    Well. I think I'm going with 430 just for the first panel. V in 427 is good too, and Belkar's bet and the cause of death for Roy is great. But that first panel... is epic.

    Man, I feel funny voting against Vaarsuvius two sets in a row, but Haley was just too great in 428. "I don't know, I'm not done expecting other places yet".

    If not for 428, though, it would be 427.

    V is just too cool in 427 to vote otherwise.

    (sigh) Another time question! You say "18:30 AM" but 18:30 in 24-hour time is a PM time. Was 18:30 (=6:30 PM) meant, 8:30 AM, or something else?

    Right now, I'm having trouble deciding between 427, 428, and 430, and I'm withholding my vote right now.

    430 because that's when things started getting interesting and Xykon was so fun there.
    None of us have tampered with the fundemental natural order when bored. That would be wrong.

    tough between 427 for that being perfect in a movie
    or
    430 for the hilarious quote me and my friends constantly use "you're that guy! The one who got pissed off at me for not remembering-
    "-something"
    "GODDAMN IT!"
    hmmmmm...
    430 because it also has the barf part (not original but still funny)

    427 wins on by making me laugh the most the first time I read them. 428 is very close behind

    Damnit these strips are spectacular. Hard choice...

    430. For the first panel and the last three panels. (The Star Trek and barf joke seemed pointless to me and actually detracted from the strip.)
    That Belkar. As stubborn as he is stone cold sexy.

    Still a Belkar fan.

    Most of these time questions, I have some idea of what you mean, but I just want to make sure there's no ambiguity.

    I'm going to have to give my vote to 427, by a nose over 430.

    EDIT: On second thought, I'm changing my vote to 430 and wondering what I was thinking there. 427 is just too hard for me to read; if 424 is a moment of pure V awesome, 427 is a moment of pure V "WTF?"

    I vote for 428. I was actually taken in by this scheme until Haley pointed it out -- it seems obvious in retrospect, but the skeleton near Redcloak did act passably like Xykon so it didn't occur to me that it might also be a fake.
