    Well that's about thirty gazillion loose ends tied up. I admit I'm kinda confused what Haley's doing there at all if he refused the ride, but I'll take the end result.

    Was wondering when we'd see Gannji and Enor again. :)

    Art bug: missing wound in last panel.

    Edit: The font looks much more legible this strip! Did you change something up? If so, might be worth doing the same to the last few strips (especially if it makes a difference for print).

    It seems Haley listened to Roy's comment. I still thought this'd take multiple strips, but one is certainly better.

    Well, that was quick. And cue everyone speculating on whether or not they'll actually take Tarquin down. I think a lot of it will hinge on Geoff.

    But Haley, you know how the last resistance movement went!

    Very nice bringing back of Enor and Ganji. Slowly but surely all of the loose ends are being snipped.

    And it goes a long way to show that the world exists outside of the Order. I like it.

    Looks like Tarquin's near-constant betraying of everyone he meets came back to bite him in the ass.

    I find it funny that the B-villain just got his own B-hero team to topple him.

    Is ... this a win or loss for Tarquin? Im still confused about that

    If they topple him, he loses, because being pwned by this gallery of third-stringers would be completely demeaning to him and Elan would have no conflict at all.

    Please, Haley's just a poser. Belkar's been doing that since Strip 63.

    I know the title is pun on "Resisting a Rest," but does anybody know the other double meaning?

    I wonder how this group started getting organized. I didn't notice any hints Enor had meet up with Tarquin's other enemies. Maybe they were found through other posters?

    Wait, what made Gannji think that was a good recruiting line? Is it just what he reflexively says when he finds someone?

    Awesome.

    Allow me to add that if .. what's her name , Amun-Zora? -- in collaboration with Ian and the bounty hunters is able to end Tarquin's reign and his life, I'm all for that conclusion. I just hope the story is told at some point as a spinoff, rather than having this incredibly neat little plot being resolved entirely off-panel.

    Might be a kickstarter reward in future kickstarters, if any should occur.

    And the last panel, as usual , brings a giggle. I should hope Haley wouldn't hold it against them. It's just business, after all.

    ETA: And this shows the downside of the Evil alignment. Amun-Zora and the bounty hunters were all former allies of Tarquin , each of whom has been alienated by his treachery. That's the downside of putting oneself above all other living beings -- the more of them you screw for your own benefit, the more enemies you make. Eventually you have too many enemies and not enough friends.

    Respectfully,

    Brian P.

    Wasn't Haley going to use Julio's Wand of Sending to speak to her father? Obviously we've missed a little bit of the story here?

    Thinking about it, she walked off with Julio's wand and then reappeared to be healed... so she might have spoken to him between those two events... Unless he said no then and she went to him in person to try to convince him but even then we are still missing a whole conversation.

    That might not be a bug, but the sixth panel features Haley's left wrist and fingers nowhere near her left arm.

    Or they actively sought out people who oppose Tarquin. As it's the latest conquest, it would be natural to start with holdouts from the Free City of Doom.
