    Glad to see Belkar still working towards been cold and hard on the outside with a warm, sensitive center....or just continuing to mess with people.

    Good comic and the brontosaurus joke was golden.

    Interesting.

    Great save by Belkar!

    Still ... I'm a little surprised at Ian. After all, he raised his daughter to trust no one and to never ever tell the truth about herself to anyone. It's why Haley had such a hard time opening up to Elan. So why is he opening up and telling Tarquin exactly what he thinks of him? A man who could have him fed to a dragon at a word?

    Respectfully,

    Belkar does a good deed again!

    Also, for a thief, Ian sure isn't being very subtle. I also worry that, if Geoff is a traitor, that he will tell Tarquin who Ian is...

    Yeah, I never took Ian for an idiot, just a very cynical man. This is probably the tipping point for Tarquin where he figures out precisely what's going on with the OOTS; Tarquin is not an idiot and I don't see him buying Belkar's bluff.

    He's not telling Tarquin the truth about himself.

    His psychological issues were never connected to anything logical.

    Dinosaur geekdom ftw, though also looks a few orders of magnitude too big. But, that allows it to carry a Jabba's Barge-sized palace on its back. So, now we get another star wars tribute, with Tarquin fighting Nale at the Sarlac pit?

    HA! Great line!

    I'm wondering what'll happen to Belkar because of that. I really don't see Tarquin falling for it...

    Ian is the type of person who just can't keep his mouth shut in some situations. Facing Tarquin is one of those situations.

    Disturbingly, I find myself agreeing with most of Tarquin's rhetoric, and not just in this strip. I hope that's only a sign of the Giant's writing talent, heh

    It seems that Belkar actually likes Ian. Hmm.

    Considering that Ian's pathology about lying was related to being a thief and living in Greysky, it is a bit incongruous that he would confront Tarquin directly like that. I'm guessing he wasn't informed why he was being brought out and Roy's line about freeing him was the first time he heard that, at which point he was already worked up and not thinking straight.

    Also, I guess Belkar finally got some ranks in spot? He certainly noticed what was happening in time to act.
