    Saw the new link, and clicked and got a 404. Was sad for a second. :(

    I like how Elan is turning into a big-time leading hero.

    Oh my god, it's obvious..oO

    While they were all in IllusionWorld, Roy was replaced with a body snatcher! He might be plotting to Elan's brain even now!

    Sounds like Roy needed this little timeout.

    I predict that in 892 we go to either the Linear Guild or Xykon finally arrives.

    ... My feels.

    Elan has always been one of my favorites, and following his character arc to this point just makes me want to see where he could go next.

    I was sort of wondering if something was going to cause Elan to briefly flip out and call multi-layered fantasy (especially with all the perhaps-predictable theories on the forum along those lines).

    And we're on the move again! I'm almost suspecting there'll be a PoV switch here, but...not sure.
    I think I just failed a Spot check.

    Now I'm just worried that some people will actually think that they are still in an illusion.

    Elan is continuing to show he's still a goofball.

    And I think this is the first time I've gotten to the comments thread before two hundred others have signed the guest book. It feels...weird...


    Oh dear...

    There will always be people believing (and claiming) one thing or the other :)

    Is anybody else wondering about Belkar's absence from the final 4 panels? Conspicuous, or just a matter of panel space?

    I think it's just because he's short.

    Elan's reaction does make sense, given what we've seen so far.

    He's not cheering before that either. Wondering where his character will go from now on . . .

    And after almost 900 strips I can finally say that I like Elan. Yay for character growth! :D

    You know Elan, I thought that too. Now they're trapped in the realistic illusionary world.

    I hope Elan doesn't throw himself out a window and frame Haley for his death. That would be an interesting twist to this story.
