180: Deja Vu
A recent discussion in the forums at Irregular Webcomic brought out the fact that although some images look similar, David Morgan-Mar has never cheated by re-using the same panels from previous strips (and he has made well over 2,000 strips!).

That got me thinking: I have re-used elements from this strip from time to time, but at least I put new work into every panel (and not just the word balloons). I haven't reused any old panels.

And then I realized that I actually had an old unused strip, so technically, I still haven't. (Actually, I think I put more effort into updating this panel that I did when I created it in the first place!)

Of course, on the other end of the spectrum, there's Dinosaur Comics, which has run for over five years and the joke hasn't gotten old.

Not to contradict Kenny, above, but I have to go with what the Barenaked Ladies have said,
"It's all been done before."
