    eek OOTS #624 - The Discussion Thread

    New comic is up.

    I'm tempting fate putting the strip up during the morning, so don't be surprised if I have to take the message board down in order for people to read it.

    Why do I continue to be amazed at the thousands of uses Bigby's Hand spells can be put to?

    Nice work. Apparently Qarr isn't that good at tempting yet.

    Qarr's speech balloon in panel 3 is the wrong color, fixing it shortly...

    "Bugsby's" hand? I wonder if Giant is afraid of those pesky lawyers as well?

    Is it a bug or why did he write "Bugsby"?

    Man, I didn't know that hand could do all those things, though....

    Because in Panel #3, Vaarsuvius casts Dimensional Anchor on him, a spell that prevents teleportation (and puts a "shimmering green field" around the subject.) The Giant is obviously showing this by making Qarr green thereafter, so we know he can't teleport.
    Congratulations, you can link to TV Tropes. This does not mean you have special insight into the storytelling process, much less the author's mind. Stories don't need to fit into neat boxes, you know.

    So feel free to take it down anytime you want. If it would mean you post a comic every day, you can actually take it down permanently. :)

    Let's see how long it takes until someone comes up with house rules for "Bugsby's / Bigby's Flicking Finger" and "Bugsby's / Bigby's Expressive Single Digit".

    Well I have to say that wasn't how most people (myself included) was expecting that first encounter to go.

    Liking the fact that V used to go invisible to tease Belkar....

    Not to be "That Guy", but in panel 1 I think the proper word would be "complement", not "compliment".

    What a great way to wake up on a Friday Morning. Bugsby's Expressive Single Digit indeed. Qaar got of very lucky. If he wants to convert/ or partner with V, He will need to start out with the Bait. ("I know why your spells have not worked").

    Wow. Qarr's really not that good at tempting people. Well, people who absolutely refuse to be distracted.
    I love the sound effect that goes with Bugsby's Expressive Single Digit.

    Bugsby's expressive single digit! Awesome.

    Why do I think this isn't the last we'll see of the imp?

    Oh, and I think there's an error in panel 1: compliment where complement was meant?
    Aren't all of us "not-nale"?

    I wonder what V's been doing about food? I'm guessing that fishing wouldn't be that preductive unless V has a boat or something which would allow him/her to said out from the island. Whether V feels there's even time to cook things properly is debatable as well.

    So, V is currently "merely" incredibly irritable rather than evil, and still very, very good at (pronoun) skillset.

    Good to know.

    Great strip, just what I needed today. I love how V so easily caught and then got rid of Qarr.
