    Awesome. No possession or ridiculous splices. Just an empty shell left:)

    Also I love that scene from Goldfinger!

    Wow, I'd never even considered that they were just going to hold him in Hell. Great development!

    Okay, I still can't read what them IFCC guys are planning, but this can't be good. The plot thickens... further.

    Oh, man, the wait for the next comics cannot be longer. Things have just picked up and I just want to know what happens already. But I'll find a way to cope. Great webcomic Mr. Burlew, has me hooked bad.

    Wait, they're not possessing V? That's surprising. And disturbing.

    Hmm why wouldn't they use him for something instead of waisting the 23 minutes holding him doing nothing?

    Ohhh, snap! And I take it the whole "What happens in the afterlife, stays in the afterlife" memory plot point will cause V and Blackwing to have a foggy memory of all this, allowing them to do it again some point later.

    "That vessel is your rightful property. Putting another soul in it would be a gross violation of our contract."

    That's why the fiends can't possess V's body. I suspect this maybe something V could use later on, though.

    Wonder if the IFCC guys do know what lies beyond the gates... or they just fundamentally want the world to be undone by the snarl for some reason.

    Plus if they possessed V and he knew, he'd consider himself a danger to the Order and separate himself from them. Know he has no reason to do that. He may be a momentary liability ofc but he cannot be actively used against them so it is in his best interest to stay with them (as long as he tells Roy everything ofc so he knows he cannot depend on V being there).

    They may be evil, but the IFCC is honorable. I love seeing how the different strands of the stories weave together, especially for the intelligent characters.

    I definitely thought they would use V's body for evil, and that twist was awesome. Especially since the Giant must of planned this years in advance!

    Oh dear. Didn't expect them to just hold him, but when nothing more is required...

    Though wouldn't one of the shorter splices have sufficed here? They're cashing in their largest debt already, it can't take the OOtS that long to destroy the Gate.

    Or they could just be buying time. They do not want anyone to win; they may simply agree with Roy on this.

    Who says they need to cash it all in at once?

    Another thing. Either Gift is right and V will remember next to nothing, or they intentionally want V to know that Sabine is part of their crew.

    Hm, V got off the hook easily. What's the worst that can happen there while she watches, something that should worry her?
    There must be some sense of order - personal, political or dramatic - and if no one else is going to bring it to this world, I will.

    Interesting. Looks like those who thought the IFCC only want to take V out of action for a short time, were right.

    Classic. Sometimes, no trickery on the fiends' part will screw you over as badly as your own assumptions will.

    Tons of bad things. The fact that the IFCC want the door destroyed means that he should be very worried about it. I wonder if he will be able to come clean with the order about the whole deal with them. And Familicide.

    But yes, I kind of expected a possession, too.

    Exquisite. The "Now" of the previous strip was very ominous, but this anti-climax was just great!

    Love it.

    Hmmm ... Have the IFCC knowledge of what's inside the rifts? Do they know about the world inside or are the expecting the Snarl?

    Now WHAT???

    I'm getting all dizzy by all this... Is blowing up the gate good, or bad, for OOTS and the world in general?
    Are those devils/demons good, or are they (as one would suppose) Evil?

    Gah... I need to get an answer to this mess soon! now! Please Giant, what about another seven-in-a-row, what about right now???

    And classy. I mean, not just refraining from possession, but even shielding the body from harm. If I ever sell my soul, I hope the fiends on my case are such good sports.
