    Haha! This is the best comic for a while. The look on V's face...I bet the fiends will hang it on their wall.

    I'm surprised that V didn't lose another of the splices from learning that he was bested by two simpering buffoons.

    Aw, I feel bad for V. I'm glad (s)he's found the fleet a place to settle though, that's one problem solved.

    I love how V has the whole "I'm a bad guy, but I think I'm one of the good guys" vibes going on.

    Default First page? That's a shock!

    So that's the answer! ANNOY evil until it solves all your problems just to shut you up!!

    Always interesting to see how often V can do that whole "loom at you with magic hands" to make you think that she's going to blast them.

    Durkon and Elan got a sending spell asking them to join Haley in Greysky City, then Durkon and Elan "disappeared" from the fleet, but the Katos can't figure out where they went?

    Holy crap... can't believe I'm here...

    Just goes to show that its not how much power you have, its how you use it. (V only had to ask where HALEY was)

    Loved the 'repaired' window, AND the long comic! How do we get them all like that?

    Yeah, that confused me for a moment.

    I think V's capacity for peg-dropping has only begun to reach its maximum potential.

    I agree that this was the most entertaining comic to read for a while. It's a neat dramatic convention to break the order up, but the strength of this comic has always been (in my opinion) the interplay of the characters rather than the plot. Admittedly, plot has been gaining in importance over time (and Mr. Burlew has stated in his writings that that's where his focus is turning increasingly), but the heart of the strip is still the dialog, interaction, and quite frankly, humor that occurs between six heroes of varying levels of dysfunctionality and their close cohorts. Leaving them broken up for this long was risky to the fundamental paradigm of the comic, and while I have had spots I've enjoyed from the last many months of 'Broken Stick' separation, I am very much looking forward to having them all back together again. It looks like things are finally starting to move in that direction, and I'm very happy :)

    Well. That was amusing.

    So, the Sending spell got through, and Durkon and Elan are on their way to Greysky. V just solved the refugees' problems, if not exactly for the right reasons. And V seems to have all but completely lost it when it comes to her ego.

    Now, I just hope she doesn't snap and do any damage to the fleet before she departs for Greysky...

    Oh wow. You finally have the power you need to resolve the problem that's cursed you for months, and it goes and resolves itself while your back is turned. I wonder how V will react to this in the long run?

    Also, I loved "Back Alley Road". Oh Greysky City and its embrace of its status as a wretched hive...

    What next? If V finds the party with Roy revived, will he/she kill Roy out of spite and scatter the party in order to show ultimate arcane dominance by finding said party again?


    Unlikely, but highly amusing.

    A new comic! YES, thank you, Rich! :)

    Wonderful. Nice to see V do some good for a change. But OUCH. All this trouble, rejection from family... only to find out that it wasn't necessary to find Haley.

    And yes, it does seem a bit odd that the Katos "don't know" where Durkon and Elan went, with all the dots they have to connect.

    I've said it before and shall do so again: If some evil deity is manipulating the plot twists in order to completely break Vaarsuvius in mind and spirit, they couldn't have done a better job.

    Doh! All that power, and Haley was at the other end of a phone call!

    What does Vaarsuvious need ultimate Arcane Power for after pwning the dragon? Will s/he give it up, or will s/he end up totally corrupted and on Xykon's payroll?

    They know where they are headed TOWARD, not exactly where they ARE. Durkon can't teleport, and whatever boat Hinjo loaned them can't possibly sail fast enough to get back to Greysky (or the nearest port, if Greysky is landlocked). So, they're in the middle of the ocean somewhere right now.

    Hrm. I think I said something like this earlier...

    Though I give V credit for helping out the Fleet (even if it was so they'd stop being a PITA as far as s/he's concerned). Still, though, if V ends up totally corrupted, V would be on his/her own payroll, I think (and probably looking to hire some goblin clerics that have a Plan too, if you get my drift).
