Please don't use this opportunity to hurt or deflate someone.
I'd like to nominate DizzyD's thread on European Comics found here
while a few of the comics discussed are chronologically classic, most are modern comics and the thread has opened up a whole new world of possible reading for me and introduced me to series and creators I would never have discovered otherwise.
I really enjoyed our discussion in Orphan Black outsold all DC and Marvel titles in February. Normally, I would think it's in bad taste to nominate a thread I started myself, but it's not the content I brought to the thread that made it so memorable to me. It's how it evolved into a conversation about how elements like digital media distribution and Loot Crate affect publication numbers and, subsequently, publisher decisions in the current comic book climate.

I going to go with Scot Harris' Are Batman Fans Sociopaths? thread for this one. It got a little harry at times but for my money it's one of the more in depth conversations we've had concerning trends in modern comics.
A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP
