    Heh heh. Anel. It's a cheap joke, but sometimes those are the most satisfying.

    I'm always surprised when a new strip is up. It feels like we're being spoilt

    Also, capcha. Heh.

    I have my own TV show featuring local musicians performing live. YouTube page with full episodes and outtake clips here.
    I also have another YouTube page with local live music clips I've filmed on my own.
    Then there is my gaming YouTube page with Kerbal Space Program, Minecraft, and others.
    Finally, I stream on Twitch, mostly Kerbal Space Program and Minecraft.

    Oh, man... the last panels are pure comedy gold.

    Sadly, i think Malack's too optimistic in regard of Nale's capture.

    I laughed hard at Anel :P Now, there should be a lot of stepbrothers from all those marriages, though...

    I had always wondered if Elan would consider the other possible names for potential brothers.

    Now I know.

    Of course, everytime we've seen Sabine shapeshift it's been into a woman or man of colour, so does this mean racial profiling has come to the world of OotS?

    In other news, get Haley back!

    Canned meat would be a reference to a product called spam.

    Better known today as something else in Internet linguo.

    Also, Elan and his middle school humour. It's kind of cute.

    Spam is a variant of canned meat- I think it's a reference to how these kind of precautions don't seem to stop spambots.

    I'm pretty sure it's a spam joke. EDIT: Yup, what they ^ said.

    Good to see Malack isn't just giving up, and always nice to have more examples of Tarquin's genre-savviness.

    I have to say, though, Durkon and Malack are far more ... buddy-buddy than I would have figured they'd be at this point. Makes me think their relationship is likely to take a sour turn sometime in the future ...

    Ergo, the spam bot still gets through.

    Also, wonderful Comic, Giant.
