    This ought to be good. Wonder if we'll get to see the fruits of V's menial labor?

    God, those books are *everywhere*! What, is there a Barnes & Noble on that desert island?

    And a switch back to V. Nice.

    It's interesting to see that for V, trancing is the same as having a bad dream. Apparently V hasn't hooked up with Qaar yet, if this follows chronological after 622.

    I must say, I'm a bit suprised that V would read anything labled as "for dummies". I wouldn't think he/she would read anything less then "Finding Plot-Holes for geniuses" or something.

    Nice comic, though.

    Nice new comic. It came out within seconds of me getting on! Hopefully this will answer some of the many questions on the forum about what happened to V.

    I don't recall if it was mentioned, but can Qarr cast illusions? If so, he might not even care about V, only use his image to get aboard the boats instead.

    Poor V, that would really suck watching people die when you should have the power to save them, but don't.

    Ok, I will have to say...... V is still gonna be evil if he doesn't learn to overcome that memory. Though now.... like redcloack there is a reason to his/her "evil intentions".... guilt.

    I never thought V would be that compassionate for other people.

    I would hate having the dream V is having constantly.

    (And it completely explains V's unexplainable attitude. Good people, when haunted by painful thoughts like these, can go insane. is desperate.)

    Poor V, although this doesn't really get Hir any compassion from me.
    Oh, and thanks for the clarification on the spell situation Giant.

    Apparently V's breakdown was due more to failing to protect everyone who depended on him, a category in which Haley would be included. There is a possibility of V making a sacrifice trying to bring those soldiers back.

    Well that explains it Also now it's entirely cleared up how V is regaining spells with trancing - the small print is everything.

    Hmm, well that explains that, though I'm surprised V just stood there speechless instead of saying something like "I'm out of spells!"

    Enter Qarr, stage left, let the temptation to greater power begin.

    Oh, poor V. I was wondering if (s)he was having nightmares.

    On the plus side, I just won a bet with my friend thanks to this new strip.

    Dang, I didn't make it in before the alignment debates. Anywayz, I don't buy it. Even if V is/will-be evil (and I'm not saying if she is), it hand-waves over the real plot.

    This comic's deep. I like.

    I think "engage" was misspelt as "enganged".
