Shouldn't that be the 29th?
The 27th is just the 14th anniversary of Spelling Boy
which no right thinking person should celebrate!

Anyway, good idea for a thread, Tom.

I'll have to give it some thought.

Maybe the next time Saxon does the Raccies he could have
nomination ballots for a RACC Hall of Fame.

Best Series.  Issue.  Arc.  Crossover.  and so on...

Assuming Saxon wants all that work.  Perhaps there
should be a limit on a how many things you can
nominate for each entry like maybe five nominations.

Every LNH story that was posted to alt.comics.lnh and
RACC from 1992 to 2005 (including rec.arts.comics stuff).
