    I thought there might be a more direct commentary on the Black Eyed Peas performance, but still very good.

    Heck yeah! The arena! About time!

    Loved the Bad Year blimp.

    So glad the games are about to start. I'm among the most patient when it comes to waiting storylines out, but even I have to admit the long conversations in the previous strips were starting to bog things down... great timing, this.

    Also, angry green elf is back. Angry at V still, apparently...

    Also, beautiful arena. Looks like it took a lot of time to draw. Wonderful stuff.

    And there's that elf who seems to have a problem with V again...

    Hmmm. Looks like there may be some sort of argument/fight break out between V and the Elven ambassador soon. Can't wait.

    I honestly thought Elan would start cheering like a maddog when they showed the arena events (which i thought would happen at the end)

    Heh heh. Choreography ^^

    Good strip.

    Panel 7 should read "they're" rather than "their".

    Nice, very nice.

    I wonder who the green haired elf is.....Is it me, or does he/she only ever glare when V's around?

    So does Haley realize Blackwing is real, or are they still just humouring V?

    I agree, Polonius is glaring again, this shall have to be explored. I'm just extremely curious about Durkon's spell.

    Elan is dead wrong once again, the reason they aren't killing each other is because Elan isn't powerful enough to kill Tarquin, and Tarquin doesn't want to kill Elan.

    GAME ON!

    All right! Moral sadness or not, I am looking forward to this! I DEMAND ENTERTAINMENT!

    Possibly sometime down the line the cruelty of forcing hand-drawn stick figures to butcher each other will tear my heartstrings. But until then, let the games begin!

    With excitement,

    I think Durkon is on to something.

    And maybe we'll soon find out what all the elf-glare is about.

    Think this is the first time I've ever read the comic and gotten to the first page on the forum. That's got to be a feat.

    I liked the reference to awful Super Bowl shows. Or is it a reference? Certainly seems to be one to me.

    Does anyone think too that Polonius is gonna spill soon the "Mommy Dragon" issue to the Order?
    ""Jeez, this dress! i look like a dominatrix""
    (self-loathing): ""Actually , you look like a sorceress or something""

    Bad Year. I love it. Also, why's the arena so far away from the central city? And anyone else wondering what the singers are singing?

    Hmm... Elan has recently certainly grown a lot as a person but he seems still more prone to judge first the esthetic rather than the ethic aspect of things. Once a bard always a bard.

    Mr. Scruffy's blank stare is perfect. Mr. Scruffy is going to do something awesome soon, maybe jump on the glaring elf so we can stop talking about him/her.

    He mentioned researching a mass spell that protects against negative energy effects. (Off-hand, I'd assume Death Ward.)
