    I liked the banter between Belkar and Vaarsuvius in this one.

    Also the ending.

    Ended their sentence with a semicolon is the best line in the comic, I think.

    Not sure I get Belkar's first comment... the prisoner didn't end with a semi colon...

    Or is he saying "semi" "colon", because all his guts spilled out? In that case, very witty!

    PS. Any comic with Mr. Scruffy is a great one

    Awesome. Always love the banter between V and Belkar.

    Of course, now that Belkar has outright stated that he and Mr. Scruffy are pals to the end, he pretty much has to die.

    I think all three of the previous comic's end panels were just a lead-in for that joke.

    And I just got a profound chill of foreboding for Belkar. Damn you Giant for making me halfway care about his fate!

    Blast that 9th panel! If Belkar ends up dying during this gladiator arc, I think I'm going to cry. And I don't even like Belkar THAT much.

    Now for me, I have Law on the top (North) of the alignment chart and Chaos on the south. Good is on the Left and Evil on the Right.

    So I am assuming that for the joke to work, Evil is supposed to be on the South side?

    The heartwarming was sort of lost in the sea of Belkar's flagrant misogyny and Jenny's sluttiness.

    Can't really say I have any sympathy for the guard. To be honest I think Belkar might actually enjoy being a gladiator slave.

    I love the alarmed look on Mr. Scruffy's face in panel 8 as he realizes he's being carried away from Belkar. And then we get the touching moment in panel 9 as Belkar reassures him that everything will be ok.

    Nice perspective in panel six.

    And Elan finally let slip in the last panel that they know Belkar. The cat's out of the bag.
