    YES!!!

    I didn't think it would be Thog, but I LOVE the fact that it is.

    EDIT: Roy's speech balloon in the 8th panel doesn't have a "tail"(?).

    Seriously?

    So many people guessed it. I wasn't one of them. But that is absolutely hilarious. And I guess that also tells us what happened to at least part of the Linear Guild.

    Awesome comic though, Giant.

    CURSE YOU!!!! Now I will always think of a green half-orc in barbarian-outfit whenever I hear this fantastic song ;)

    I did not see this coming and I'm really looking forward to seeing how it will be resolved! (Elan won't be happy at all …)

    Is the Linear guild gonna show up now? Makes a bit of sense I suppose. When did they last show up? When they kidnapped Elan?

    Wait... What... huh...

    Thank you for destroying my brain Giant.

    How does that even work, if Thog was captured wouldn't Tarquin want to interrogate him to find Nale?

    That is one of my favorite punchlines. Ever.

    EDIT: Great Queen reference. I also just noticed the title is another Queen reference.

    I assumed Tarquin would know all the members of Nale's group, but I guess he must have recruited Thogg after leaving his father's lands.

    Last time we saw Thogg, he was leaving Azure City with Nale and the seccubus. If Thogg was peeing on the street, then it stands to reason that Nale and her are in the country too. Wonder when they'll show up!

    I'm going to say they guessed it purely out of coincidence. I had all the evidence for it laid before me in the Champion thread, and even then it was a leap of logic.

    But when enough people throw around crazy suggestions, someone tends to get it right. Even a broken clock shows the right time twice a day and so forth.

    I don't see how it can be Thog, but I'm sure the Giant has something in mind.

    Thog hadn't been getting enough screen time, and that made me sad. Now...

    Welcome back, Thog! And he's quick to remind us why he's been missed.

    Also, nice to get it all but verified that Tarquin's not quite done with the family reunion. I'm also curious about his explanation for letting a known associate of Nale alive like this.

    I thought they were guessing his father, not Thog himself.

    Nope. Thog was there when Nale tried to take over the EoB.

    Is Roy going to kill him because he hates him or because of the Queen reference?

    That was a flashback. It happened before any of the strips.

    You're making the critical mistake of assuming it would be possible to get anything of use out of Thog's brain.

    And Thog is in the flashback, interacting with it, I doubt he's a ghost.
