    You actually changed the cast page to reflect the stolen diamond. It's added touches like that that really make me laugh.

    Good show Giant.

    Hey, the cast page is back. I remember it was gone for a while... was it in preparation for this strip?

    V sure Shapechanged fast there, and that was a wonderfully meta solution to the diamond problem.

    I wonder how Haley is planning to repay that big-ass diamong to herself?

    Anyway, great as usual, I love the new cast page.

    Well... that was fourth wall shattering, indeed.

    Keep in mind, Shapechage last 10 minute/level and you can shift forms as a free action.

    I have to say this was a humorous strip, and for some reason: I like that Greyskyian Redhead. :-)

    Nice.

    Cast page is updated and everything. Classy.

    Of course, Haley's being unethical again. Stealing from others, we know she does.

    Stealing from herself though?

    Very nice that it is actually changed....Were the characters always drawn that way or was that changed so they would be "deformed" as well?

    Assuming that those thieves are part of the guild, this gives Bozzok the diamonds to revive Crystal.

    What happens when you break the continuity between a comic and its own bonus material?
    What did they break this time? The third-and-a-half wall?

    (Hopefully, we're going to finally get to see Roy come back for real next time.)

    Nope. Look at the fourth to last panel (the one right after V was about to travel to Plane of Earth).

    "What? Which giant diamond?"

    Changing the cast page. Thats awesome! Also the fourth wall has been shattered into a thousand tiny pieces. And this comic tossed them into a nuclear furnace.

    Did V actually port out?
