    I'd like to be the first to admit not seeing Blackwing in 673. :(

    I do hope that this isn't the first of many instances where the Order is patronizing/dismissive towards V... Which could lead to V eventually turning against them, given his shaky alignment status.

    That's annoying of them. Poor unappreciated Blackwing.

    Wait... why did Belkar think V called him a cutie?

    I know "acuity" is easy to miss-hear, but why would belkar even consider that that was what V said?

    Loved Roy's comment in the first panel. #673 was alright, but this one was back to lol status. Hooray!

    Question: Are they teasing V, or do they honestly think V's gone loco?

    I'm surprised at Haley. She did name the raven Blackwing before.

    I think they're teasing V more than thinking she's gone crazy.

    Poor V. It felt forced, though.

    I love Elan's familiar...

    Edit: I still don't know if the character development, is major for V. or for Blackwing...

    I'm half tempted to think that Belkar is teasing (he is a bastard after all), but the rest seem to earnest. Even Haley, who named Blackwing. A funny strip all told, but not my preferred brand of humour. Though V's final words were an awesome punchline. Though I don't actually remember Roy being around when V used his Familiar before.

    Good comic, sets things in motion. And nicely covers introducing Blackwing to the party as a whole in a funny way.
    If I cared about this, I would probably do something about it.

    Presumably, because his intellectual capacities and vocabulary are of but limited capacities.



    Now, why would Haley not remember Blackwing? Might getting so close to the rift have had some effect on how firmly Blackwing is rooted in this reality, erasing the others' memories of him, or any such thing?

    Where was the raven when you were turned into a lizard?

    Ah...good memories. :)

    EDIT: I'm not sure. I don't really know much about familiars being affected by reality-bending portals like the Snarl's prison. :/

    Good to see V hasn't changed completely. Things just wouldn't be the same without comments like that.

    Belkar probably heard V correctly but just like when he knew it was Roy when he put the belt of M/F on he does things like that to get a rise out of people. Or is still trying for some offhand comment to prove V's gender.

    I have to say that I don't really "get" it. They clearly have noticed Blackwing before -- as mentioned, Haley even named him. And besides, why would they not believe V, given the abilities and knowledge that he has, that clearly transcend their own?

    First comic I've read out of all 674 of them that messes with the verisimilitude of the story, to be honest.

    They're just joking with her. Before, it was SHE that ignored Blackwing and the others acknowledged the bird. Now, the table has turned.

    Maybe, but it doesn't come across as a joke. Durkon even makes what appears to be a sotto voce comment.
