    So, it looks like O-Chul will distract Xykon long enough for V to escape

    or not

    Great strip

    Xykon does have a point, he's earned his badarse status. Do liches get strength bonuses or something?

    Yes. I like how V is still smart even if she has the wisdom score of a lemming.

    Tsukiko went back to bed, remember?

    Anyway... how does/did V plan on using a Paladin who is still pretty heavily wounded to help scrape victory out of the jaws of defeat?

    Damn you, Giant, for making such an awesome comic and an even further awesome cliffhanger.

    That was awesome. Awesome awesome awesome. I feel like I should say awesome a few more times, just for good measure, but I'm sure you get the idea.

    I think it means a lot for V's character that this time, he went back to help O-Chul even though he was effectively powerless to hurt him. It's possible that it's just overwhelming guilt from leaving the soldiers at Azure city, but either way it's nice to see V starting to care more about others. I am extremely excited to see the next strip.

    This probably is the most touching comic I've seen so far. I quite liked how V pretty much gave up his escape to help O-chul.

    Xykon is ****ed even if it doesn't kill him. You don't heroically get up like that in a story where drama takes precedence over the rules and just get a cheap put down again. Also it's karma for Xykon as it pretty much says exactly what he says, that it all balances out in the end.

    I figured that either Xykon would outwait V's Invisibility, or find V himself. Did not expect O-Chul to come back another round, can't wait for the next one!

    WOW awesome V! i knew there was still some good left in hir! this is totally down to the wire now. Which, well, isn't all that suprizing, since the battle itself has simmered down, and know it's a race to see who'll come out alive.

    By the way Rich, if you are by any chance reading this, Your about to give me, a healthy, non-smoking 19 year old dude a damn heart attack with these cliffhangers! GAH! Not that i hate them but my seat's running out of edge to sit on.

    I somehow doubt V would have successfully escaped Xykon, even if he hadn't gone back to help O-Chul.

    Xykon is crazy not to have some kind of Permanent Detect Invisibility or True Seeing effect going on in the first place.. but I'd say if V had just moved out of earshot of Xykon, Xykon would have done something to bring him back.

    It makes no sense that someone with the power and resources of Xykon could be eluded by simply casting Invisibility and walking away.

    So while V's motivations were probably heroic, the action he took was logical from even a neutral or evil point of view. Going for a chance at damaging or seriously distracting Xykon with O-Chul's aid would probably have a better chance of success than trying to run away while he's actively looking for you.
