    Dwarven brandy, does it every time.

    Although, it seems Rich is being paid by the anti alcoholic campaigners.

    References to Monty Python, and Pokemon!

    Miko should fall for touching the demon roach "there."

    And, wow, I loved this comic. It's nice to see Miko thinking, and the Pokemon reference was hilarious. The bit about the Order of the Stick seemed a bit like "I'm saying this out loud so that the audience will know what I'm thinking," though.

    Those roaches are really dirty *g* 'Take it off, honey'...

    Again Miko gives a whole new meaning to the phrase 'dumb as a doorknob' IMHO. She should be called an honorary dwarf (with my apologies to all dwarves).

    Holy crapoly.
    Miko's going even further wacko (sigh...), displaying the same cleverness as in some of her earlier fights, the pokeball...and meeting the creature in the darkness.
    This promises to be interesting.

    It was lovely. I have never thought that one can do that to a forcecage.

    But the MitD was super. One of the best endings, that I could imagine. And why is MitD still there?

    You're kidding me. Her plan was ingenious. And she has evasion.

    This just proves that, as a villain, you should NEVER leave a hero for later. Even if she's stuck in an undestructible cage.

    You know, Miko's actually quite pretty when she smiles, but that poor girl really needs to give the OotS a break. As for the creature in the dark... I dread to think what it could do *meep*

    I'd always thought that the cage formed a full cube, but... eh, the Giant can play it as he likes. Never thought about the fact that it's not described as unmovable before, though, so I'm glad it came up here.

    That last roach scene made me very uncomfortable. Just saying.

    As for the final panel... hoo, boy.

    I did not refer to her handling of the forcecage. I was thinking about what she said about Roy & Co. Maybe dumb doesn't quite fit. I'm not sure about a good English word - thickheaded? singleminded?

    edit - I mean, there's a saying going 'My opinion is set, don't confuse me with facts'. She's set her opinion about the order and nothing short of a miracle is going to change that. Not that (at the moment) there any facts that could influence her opinion, but she seemingly flatly refuses to even consider other explanations.

    Yeah, you need to keep an eye out for the roaches in any comic featuring Xykon and friends... they're almost always there to provide a laugh, but are so easy to overlook. I missed the lightsaber duel a couple of strips ago, until someone mentioned it in the forum.

    Yeah, that's about it, isn't it? She's not at all stupid - both now and previously, she's proven very good at coming up with effective plans. But once she makes a decision, it's a huge effort to get her to change it.
