    Huh, V was wrong about how many slaves they could free.

    Count the points of light. V was out by 7.

    It is all coming together now, and i liked that this one came so soon after the last one, it kinda helps keep a decent pace in the story.

    Can you say epic father son brawl?

    Just ... Wow. Well, that should be blunt enough for even Elan. No rationalizing that one away. That should settle the "Dad's not evil" arguments" (but probably won't).

    Nice and brutal. I have to say Elan's dad is probably one of my favorite characters.

    Well that was definetly Evill with a very capital E. I actually could even forgive this empire building stuff- the place has been in a bunch of pointless and bloody wars anyway - so a little scheming warring and backstabbing that could eventually lead to some stability aint so bad - maybe evil but maybe have some stuff to exonerate a bit.
    This one is but hilariously obvious - GIGANTIC FLAMING LETTERS spelling I'M AN EVIL *************************************************! !!

    edit: a long line of asterix-s ( how ever is the plural of asterix) for it really needs a long-and-winding not so decent name for a guy like that.
    Also nice way to finally put the evil-not-evil alignment debate of Tarquin down for good. ( at least I hope so, there might bee some Goodkind fans on board )

    All their hard work, Haley and V! OMG.

    Also, while Tarquin was always obviously evil, this seems a bit more, well, evilly evil than I anticipated. I'll just again.

    Since Elan doesn't seem to be too inclined at the moment...

    This comic is a milestone: Tarquin is now more blind to his son's alignment than Elan is to his father's. Apple didn't fall far from the tree in some ways.

    BWAHAHAHAHAHA! I know that that's pretty horrific, what with people being staked down and set ablaze, but holy crap on a stick, I laughed so hard when I saw that.

    Poor Elan.
    I do think it was a little excessive, though. Up until now, Tarquin has seemed more like the "Do whatever it takes to get what I want" kind of evil than the "Light people on fire to get a neat sign" kind.

    I doubt that Tarquin will play fiddle while his city burns. Tarquin is more likely to be holding the torch...

    Jesus tapping dancing Christ. That's not just killing rebels to keep an ordered society, that's inflicting prolonged, hideous pain for evil amusement.

    Wow.

    The last time I saw that kind of thing in fiction- was in Warhammer- Manfred Von Carstein- one of the most ruthless and cunning of the Warhammer vampires.

    For sudden, shocking, major evil acts- this one ranks up there with:

    "Follow the bouncing ball"

    and

    "Familicide"

    And this is the sign of a good villain. Affable, pleasent, likeably - and utterly Evil. I like his style!

    Thank you Giant, that's two paragons of villainitude you've given us! (Xykon being the first.)

    Three if you count Belkar...
