For this retrospective, I've picked a favourite from each of the first years, and yes, it was bloody hard.  I didn't have any trouble at all picking enough faves to fill the next month's worth of 'Classic Re-runs'!

This one is from 2008.  By that time, I'd been introduced to Kate Ritter's archives of promo shots and other drop-dead gorgeous items, such as this one:

The by now infamous (I hope) Mistletoe Man made his first appearance in December of 2007, again as a result of Lothi's tireless efforts.

Ah, but what of Jack?  He made his first appearance in the third and fourth LOLs posted.  This one from 2009 is my partner's all-time favourite (and one of mine).  It's also one of the most ambitious manips I'd done to date.

A personal fave of mine from 2010.  I call this kind of caption 'narrative' style; it's one of my favourite approaches, although the layouts can be really challenging.

And that's it for today's retrospectives; the Classic LOLs World Series will begin tomorrow.  Stay tuned for the promised, epochal, epic LOL #1400!

And (now that the reminiscences are over), for LOLMac #1400: I did promise you a particularly shirtless pic.

He’ll be back!
