    I'll give my opinion in thumb signs.

    *right thumb up, three fingers outstretched, wave with left hand*
    *Wave with right hand, left thumb down*
    *Both thumbs sideways*

    If that's not proof that these fights are organized like the gladiatorial games during the Roman Empire, I don't know what is.

    We also have an allosaurus to stop the debate over Tarquin's verdict. Not sure how long that things is going to survive for, especially since someone could cut it up from the inside assuming they survive the acid damage.

    Not likely, since it seems to have made a point of not eating their weapons.

    that's what every roman movie or television series with an arena is missing, a giant t rex to eat people! loved it. although it could be an allosaurus, due to the larger forearms

    Definitely an allosaur based on the shape of the skull.

    Also, HAHA, that guy got eaten by an allosaurus! HILARIOUS!

    No, Roy has a dark blue-gray armor this time. The ones that died were the foreground mooks from the first panel of the previous page. Or, at least, they look exactly like them.

    First off, I was expecting more on this page (and I'm sure I'm not the only one). The anticipation for Roy vs. whoever has been built up so much that now no matter what happens it will be anti-climatic. Sometimes instead of prolonging things you just have to give the audience what they want, which is doubly fitting because we're talking about gladiators.

    Is the Allosaurus mechanical?

    Cuz' I'm pretty sure jaw doesn't look like that on live animals, in all OotS style images I saw so far.

    I wonder how Elan is taking this senseless bloodshed? He doesn't seem too bothered, but maybe he's learned to hide his disgust by now.

    I was surprised he didn't start to argue about most dramatic hand-signs with his father.

    After all, if the drama demands it, you have thumbs, the question is only how to make the moment dramatic enough for it :P

    No, it's got two claws on each hand, so it must be a T-Rex. Allosauruses (Allosauri?) had 3.

    If the Arena used to have an Olliesaurus, doesn't it stand to reason that thay have an Allosaurus now?

    Allosaurs. And, as someone above mentioned, the head signifies an Allosaurus. Tyrannosaurs had a distinct, broader head shape.
