Musing on great LNH stories, I am baffled by my embarrssment of riches.
There are some series that I actually print out and then have thesis bound
in buckram rather than just having then stapled together and kept in a 
- but those lucky series are ones that I know have completed (Constellation/
Dvandom Force) or which I have given up on ever seeing completed (Legion
of Occult Heroes).  (Tries to recall if he's have Retcon Hour bound, but
honestly cannot recall)

I've been meaning to have Tales Of The LNH similarly bound for about a year-
and-a-half now, and after that will probably be Misfits, Decibel Dude & 
Guy and probably Swordmaster.

But then there are all the 'little' (shorter run) series that have been lots 
of fun
but whose short page count makes it rather unworkable to have bound, and
which will therefore probably languish eternally in folders:  Dog Boy 
springs to

If Jaelle's recent Ape Month contribution is counted as an example of being 
continuation of the series, then Writers Block Woman (Mouse) beats me as
longest running.
