    I like the gladiator names on the list. Poor Evisceratus.

    Actually, now I'm REALLY getting that cliff-hanger heart-beating excitement - pleeease come quick with the nest comick!

    BTW - is there ANY chance at all, plotwise, that the Champ is Girard? (although I would settle for Thog...).

    Aaaww. Why can't Belkar get the good matches? Roy fights are not duely enough.

    Can I get the names on the list? Too small to read without morning joe.

    I wonder if the Champ will be anyone we know. It ought to be a fun twist if it is.

    Good choice of names

    Just to get it out of the way: the Champ is Girard doing it for the fun of it.

    Awesome! Ganji vs. Enor. I've been waiting for the "screw them over" fight pairings, and we get not one but two in the same comic!

    Roy is in no real danger though, Durkon is right there and I assume diamonds are available. Roy has a "life sentence", which would then be served and it would all be nice and legal for everyone.

    Missing period between "Maybe I'll get to fight him next week" and "It's a pity you won't be around to see it[...]"

    Also this is going to be heart-wrenching.

    I'm predicting either an anti-climax or the return of a previous character for this 'champ' battle.

    What joke?

    Also, how come first level commoner was placed 7th? Do they lack qualified gladiators so badly?

    Also also, if the combatants above Belkar were stronger than him, a pity we haven't seen their fight.

    It seemed plain to see that he was still better than the other guys, though. Dancing around smacking all kinds of people in the head as he does front-flips? I'd put him a bit farther over Eviceratus.

    The Champ is obviously Tarquin! Or some guy we've never seen before and wont see until the Gannji Enor fight is over. Either way, awesome comic. Also, Haley's dad is funny again!
    Can only thank GitP for being so good for so long.

    Oh, perhaps there's significance in the title "Not Yet Met His Match".

    Who do we know to be significant that Roy hasn't yet met?

    We've just had an anti-climactic fight though - two in a row would probably be pushing it.

    No, the champ is Therkla

    Eh, it's pretty obvious it's going to be someone new, both logically and from the title of the comic.

    Offpanelio and Notseenicus... Heh Heh.

    So Gannji and Enor are squaring off together? I wonder if Tarquin is going to force one of them to kill the other?

    And as for Roy's mystery match, I wonder if the posters from the eariler comics give some sort of clue to who that might be... (the posters and the bronze statue BOTH included beheadings of Roy...)

    Oooh. Me likey.


    Ok, spec time - they've told us that the gladiator games normally happen on weekends. Assuming its a regular weekend event, then its 37 weeks since this Champ came on the scene. Thats roughly 9 months ago.

    I lost the timeline a little here. How long is it since the Azure City battle? If it does line up, it isn't ridiculous to guess at Thog since we know the linear guild went straight for the Western continent as the battle finished.

    "And from across a crowded floor this beautiful girl beckoned me
    She took my hand and together we walked out, and danced into the night…

    I had the strangest dream, but I'll swear I was awake..."

    The Giant does it again- overturning expectations! (The Gannji vs Enor possibility was brought up, but I at least forgot to consider a 'Champ')

    If Girard is the Champ, its possible his fights have all been illusions allowing him to spare and recruit the best fighters to wind up in the arena (though why he would do this, I'm not sure)

    Edit:
