    Poor Gannji. And, uh, blue guy. What was his name again?

    I wasn't expecting to see the bounty hunters again, but I love how the storylines are always intertwined.

    I have not been paying proper attention, what's the ylang ylang reference to?

    Cute, but I don't quite get the final line about "smelling ylang-ylang" - can anyone please explain the pun to me?

    It isn't a pun. The make-up that Haley got from the Sisterhood of Aton used ylang-ylang flower. So, yes, that comic was relevant to the plot.

    I was beginning to get the shakes when BAM! a new comic! Nice to see the bounty hunters again. (and nice to see that, in the end, everyone's got to hit the tavern at some point)

    Since Roy and the others don't know about the ylang-ylang connection to Haley, this wicked pair may get awy with it and really retire. Which is a shame. This combination of cold calculating and utter ruthlessnes made them as hilarious as evil.

    Nice way of ending a sub-arch.

    I love these guys. I know everyone's fawning over Tarquin but Gannji is my favorite new character in quite a while.

    This looks like fun! Another fight coming up, I guess. And we don't find out what Tarquin's plotting for a while. Though it would be funny if he did just genuinely want to get to know Elan, alignment or no...

    Anyway, I was starting to miss Roy and Belkar.


    Oooh, first page!

    At least Roy has the bow; I was worried about that.
    So they were at the rendezvous, Vaarsuvius, Haley and Elan weren't there; they should be on their toes. I don't know how they will make the connection. And where did Durkon go again? (flips back)

    If it's one or the other, the bow is more important. Maybe the knife is tucked away somewhere.

    It took me a while to understand the ylang-ylang comment but now I get that Haley was carried by them. It will be interesting to see how this goes.
