    That had me giggling like a schoolgirl. Well done.

    This bounty hunter is my kind of scum: fearless and inventive.

    Yay, new comic! I actually feel bad for the minister now. Good to see a more human LE villain.

    Y'know, the joke was funny, but it seems like he could have used something a bit less... sci-fi than a thermal detonator.

    It's nice to have a break from the drama and have a bit of comedy for a few pages :)

    Man- everything's gotten so good- ever since we first made it to the throne room, a few strips back. The jokes & mise-en-scenes have been some of the best ever.

    Still waiting to see what Tarquin's true colors are. He seems like a lovable boob, but who knows what Evil lurks in the heart of...

    Anyway- he's a fantastic character. Bang-up job, Giant.

    I guess we can assume that the bounty hunter is actually Sabine then, or... well, Haley would work better but there's only one of her.

    Hmm...I was going to say "Not if he wanted to keep the theme going." But you're right, actually. "I am holding a contingent fireball" would have still been a recognizable shout-out to the movie, and maybe funnier since it's more in-world and not a direct quote...so the fourth wall stays intact until the punchline shatters it.

    Hm, yes Vader did turn back to the Good side before death. Maybe it will the opposite for Tarquin?

    I'd post a proper comment, but I -snort- am quite busy rolling around on the floor laughing.

    Heh. Where was I?

    I like how V and Malack can sympathize with each other, regardless of allignment.

    Another awesome one. And I've just now realized how many of my work meetings could have been improved by using the line "Because I'm holding a THERMAL DETENATOR!"

    I'm trying not to laugh too loud at those last two panels. It's still morning, and my neighbors might get mad. But, they are really funny, and I know I'm walking to school with a grin on my face. (Like that one.)

    Because he raised Nale? And the seperation between the parents was because she was Chaotic Good and he was Lawful Evil. Comic 50

    Elan's and Empress' shocked expressions are actually because they have no idea what a Thermal Detonator is. Elan will likely bring that up the next time the Order has the chance to buy tomato soup.

    Heh. As I suspected, Elan was exactly, exactly right about why Tarquin never told Nale about Elan's existence.
