As a reader, I'd probably say 1994 — for all the reasons that Arthur
mentioned, and because that's when Jeff McCoskey posted
"Golden LNH-Men."  That series really blew me away... and I
hadn't even read "Watchmen" at the time.

(In fact, when I finally did get around to reading "Watchmen," more
than a decade later, I thought "Well, that was pretty good.  But
Jeff's story was better.")

As a writer... it's a toss-up between 2007 (I really loved everything
surrounding the "Infinite Leadership Crisis") and 1999, when
"Birth of a Villain" was really cooking.  Working on that was
what I imagine being part of a really great jazz combo would
be like: you're in the same room with all of these amazingly
creative people, and one of them throws a riff your way,
and you have to reach down into the most creative part
of yourself to come up with a response that takes what
they've given you, and puts a new spin on things.

And man, the people: Jessica, Dave, Jamie Rosen,
Saxon, Tom, Ben Rawluk, Ken Schmidt...
Writing in tandem with all of those amazing talents made
me feel I had to take my game to another level.  It was
this insanely chaotic collaborative experience
-- which to me is what being a part of the LNH is
all about.

in the same league as "Golden LNH-Men" #1
