    tongue OOTS #645 - The Discussion Thread

    New comic is up.

    Given that it is soon to be working hours on the East Coast, expect the boards to get shut down when the flood of readers hits in a little while.

    Is Belkar bald in this strip? I don't see his usual fuzz. Maybe it's just blending in with the background.

    ...

    And yes, that's the first comment I thought of.

    Is Belkar playing footsie with V at the end? Over the last 3 panels, his foot goes from being somewhat close, to looking like its actually touching V's foot.

    Hehe, I hope we do get it as bonus content.

    Also, wow, so many things happening! I feel overwhelmed.
    (And I enjoyed the Darth Vaarsuvius too. And the poster. Adn coming back to "that was unreasonably complicated" about something we missed.)
    Actually I think I love everything about this strip :P

    "Rrrrarr!" says golem-Roy.

    Maybe I'm strange, but that line made me laugh as much as all else in the strip put together. Probably because that quickly led me to picture Roy and Celia's happy reunion. Unless V can somehow use ultimate arcane powers to fix the whole mess by the end of the next strip.

    Good to see Belkar in full form again. Its amazing how I can log in five minutes after the comic goes up and there are already about 10 posts in this thread.

    Thumbs up Re: OOTS #645 - The Discussion Thread

    I love it so much when characters mention about their acknowladgement about this being a comic :) (Scene as a bonus meterial, "you've changed your speech baloons", "there are whispers in your ear???")

    And this is the first time "the voices" are actually "fond of" someone :) also confirmation of Belkar's "un-confirmed but obvious" evillnes :)

    That was the funniest strip in quite a while, i was beginning to fear all this drama would drown out the humor, but apparently not. Good job Giant

    Good point. Why didn't they save themselves the trouble of restraining a golem and just destroy it? At this point, it doesn't really matter whether the body is damaged a bit more. But then, neither Haley, Celia, Belkar, nor Bozzok (and certainly not Crystal) is well versed in the knowledge of divine magic. Probably better not to take any chances.

    Belkar used his new skills to be sneaky evil nicely there. The spliced souls seemed to like him also. I am looking forward to Celia's reaction. V will probably end up undoing the magic on the bone golem.

    So that proves it, Belkar is definitely still evil. I mean "I wonder if we can get the scene of us rescuing Roy's corpse added as bonus content to the next book"

    Awesome strip. I love the "Safety a Close Second" poster in the background. I want one of those for my dorm!

    C'Mon, V. Give up the souls. If you are getting along with Belkar, that's the sign that it is time to call it quits.

    "Safety a close second!" was nice.

    Belkar is still insufferable. Hypocrite Belkar is a pain to see, as always. But I will grant that the last panel was in some ways a nice moment, perhaps important for Vaarsuvius.

    I wonder if we'll see how/why Haley decided to continue working with Belkar? I am disappointed that she apparently forgot her own decision to part ways with him when she realized that the Mark of Justice had been activated. I would much rather expect her to team up with Celia than with Belkar. It is weird to find out otherwise.

    On the other hand, it is nice to see Roy's ressurrection close at hand.
