    451 for me. No context (although the other ones are pretty good too).

    - "What mortal can resist the siren song of "Aww, Come on!"?"
    - Redcloak questionning himself
    - Redcloak being badass
    - "We're going to win this war NOW"
    Oh, and a bonus for the cute summoned evil mammoth. I want one.

    Interestingly, I think this strip is like the perfect contrast with 464. In some ways, Miko and Redcloak have a lot in common, but I think thse two strips show how they're quite different.

    Well, see

    451 is dramatic, but giant red mammoth and a racoon spoils the effect pretty nice. Bad idea
    456 is another funy allusion to D&D
    464 Well... epic... and the end of the Miko which made me fell symphatyfor her...
    470 Haley making some kind of Power Rangers action? No thanks.
    472 Making fun out of cliche. Good, but that's all.

    Gotta go with

    464 even though 451 is close.

    451. Redcloak's change of heart and learning a little more about what it means to lead all the goblin peoples.

    I'm going to have to go with 464. It's always been one of my favorites out of all of OotS...and it's one that can always manage to make my cry. I liked the character of Miko before...but this one really made me feel for her.

    I'll go with 464. I never thought I'd be able to feel bad for Miko, but there you go. It's an excellent strip.

    Can I vote for all of them? .

    If not, 456 all the way.

    No, No, it HAS to be 464 what was I thinking?

    Tough one. Three are funny, two are plot - however, the funny ones are not that amazingly funny (I love Kazumi and Daigo, though), while the plot ones are extremely well done. In the end, I'll go with 451 simply because I prefer Redcloak over Miko, but it's really a close one.

    A stronger batch to chose from than the last BotQ, but I've got to go with 464.

    Wow, some great contenders: Redcloak's "My God, What Have I Done"? Or "Alas, poor Miko"? Or the naming of the redshirts? Oh well, in the end I'll go with #470, Haley's Moment of Awesome.

    This is a really hard one. 472 is funny, 470 is awesome, but for me, it comes down to Redcloak's epiphany in 451 or Miko's lost redemption in 464.

    It's a hard choice, but I have to go with 464. It puts the proper tragic end on Miko's fall. I wish I could give Redcloak my vote, but I've only got the one.

    Very very tough choice. I'm going to go with Redcloak's epiphany in 451. Miko's death was good, and of course the mauve shirts are very good. But I like Redcloak.

    There really is no choice here. 464 is just way superior to the others

    Hm.... another great bunch... though it's pretty sure the decision will be made between 451 and 464... Even though I appreciate the latter I'll go with 451 because... I think it was more important, more funny, and just more plain awesome.

    A tough one for me this time. I nearly went for 464, with "I can live with that.", but in the end I guess I'm a sucker for a redhead showing off her stuff: 470.
