    Aaah. There's no greater insult for a wizard than being called a warlock.

    Loved the crack about spell component value in the first panel, though.

    So, what wizard spells require diamond dust to cast? I know it sounds familiar. A pinch of diamond dust...

    He got blown back from the force of the spell, but left his hat behind.

    It's a common comedic technique in both animation and sequential art.

    You can clearly see his feet in the last panel, people. He didn't teleport.

    I think his turban simply fell off as he was hit by lighting and knocked back.
    Ninja'd, of course.

    It's always the shinies that cause the problems.

    I'm torn over deciding which is better: the line about the cost of spell components or the line about bad self-insertion fanfic.

    V hit him so hard that his turban flew right off of his head.

    Actually, he might be dead in the next strip. Wouldn't that be hilarious?

    The Lightning Blot trew him out of the picture and he lost his turban in the process.

    Identify? Or did that need a complete diamond?

    That was hilarious. I love the interaction between V and his familiar, I hope we get more of that. :)

    (Diamond Dust is the material component for Stoneskin, which requires 250 gp worth, and Restoration, which needs 100 gp worth. Looks like V's planning ahead.)

    Poor V, he just can't catch a break.

    It's like the universe is bent on making her lose his temper and going on a mad wizard killing spree.

    I'm sure she's very close, too.

    Good to see V is still a bit evil.

    And no, he was probably not morally justified in zapping the guy. Although I'd look the other way.

    That's right - George R. R. Martin; a writer so ruthless, his name is a verb akin to Samuel L. Jackson. Valar morghulis.

    Oh, now I see. He's falling backwards. I had assumed that his oversized torso was still entirely vertical, thus make it look like V vaporized his head.
