    I was online? Really? Yay!

    Edit: Nice. O-chul steals the show as always, and we get an answer to exactly how much Roy remembers.

    Feels like things are winding down to a splash page to me.

    O-Chul FTW.

    Aside from that.. seven weeks? Interesting...

    Heh. Loved the punchline. :P

    It looks like we're in the arc's denouement now. I'm looking forward to the next one now. :D

    O-Chul remains awesome as ever.

    And it's great to see Haley and Roy interacting again. I really missed "bet you ten gold".

    Can EVERYONE who was going nuts over it shut up now about the number?

    Not only were there zero fiendish references, there was actually a heavenly one.

    Excellent comic, I'm glad I was here to see it so quickly. I can't tell if this is the end of the arc. It looks like a good ending point, but there was no splash page. Hopefully we'll get a few more before the long wait.

    Also: O-Chul was as awesome as ever, even if he was only in one panel. I guess this also answers the questions people had about how he would react to seeing Belkar.

    "Do it to someone else and I will gut you with my bare hands." Amazing.

    Good title, too.

    I wonder if they will pull it off...

    If that's the case, then Belkar might not die until the end of the strip. That's interesting.

    Nice landscape, too, I like the sunset. And it's nice having Roy back, and having things explained about what he remembers or not.

    EDIT: usually Rich warns us when it's the end of a book. I'd say it's not until proven otherwise.

    It's always good to see how the Giant screw all the hypotesis related to the number of the strip...

    Still, it's a strip full of interesting informations!

    I like how Haley's mind works. Mind you I never would have thought of that particular idea, so I'm even more impressed. Too bad Roy had to forget about his brother and mother. Hope that'll be remember next time. "Prove your my mother." isn't exactly the best greeting, but saying it twice would hurt.

    Well, the O-Chul kills Belkar thing is a bust, but we kinda already suspected that. Wasn't expecting exactly how they resolved it, but heh.

    hmm, so we now know that a year will have passed in 7 in-comic weeks from hmm.... how many comics does that mean till belkar's death(comic calculators do your maths!)

    edit: did it myself oracle first said it in #329, so 666-329 = 337 / 45 = 7.488 so we might expect belkar to die within the next 52 comics or so

    Ha, where's my cookie for reading O-Chul's attitude re: Belkar correctly? ;)

    Seriously, good comic Giant, some nice wrap-up items for those of us speculating on memory, Belkar's "reformation" and other details.

    Edit - and now we know how close to the new year it is, in-comic. Thanks for that. :)

    O-Chul, both unerringly polite and brutally awesome at the same time.

    7 weeks is a long time, though. Even with 8 hours for resting, that's 49x16x60x10=470,400 rounds. Plenty of time.

    If that was the ending of the arc (and perhaps the next-to-come book), it was a great one. And fits in nicely with the "Empire Strikes Back" theme - reminds me of Luke and Leia, with Luke trying out his new hand.

    And O-chul rocks.

    Just seven weeks left for the Belkstar...

    I was wondering how much of a year was left.

    I figured there wouldn't be anything special or evil about 666.

    It is also interesting to note that because Roy knows when Belkar will die, he assumes he knows when their mission will be over with. I guess he feels it will take the whole team if they are going to stand a chance.

    Aww, I thought comic 666 would show the Devils/Demons/Daemons reactions to all of this.

    But this was a great comic nonetheless. Bet you ten gold pieces has definitely been missed. Now, the party dynamic can return to quasi-normal (V's still a ticking time bomb, and Belkar's "Employee of the Month", but otherwise its back to business as usual).

    O-Chul has the best response EVER
    The reason why a little knowledge is a dangerous thing is because it convinces foolish men that they are wiser than they are.

    Even if it's not the end of the story arc, it's very close to it.

    O-Chul is awesome as always. And the whole strip, too.
    Guess what spell I cast before posting this message.
