    Well. Guess that answers that about Durkon. Durkula. Whichever.

    Though come on, don't you realize that now Durkon's going to break out at the most critical and opportune time? You just doomed yourself, stupid! Still, damn, I saw it coming by the end of the first page, but not before then! Especially not the exact nature of Hel.

    It's been a fantastic ride--see you in a month and a half!

    Thanks Giant, looks like it'll be a well-deserved rest.

    And I'm sure it'll be worth the wait for us :D

    Wow, was looking at the forum for last episode, then I hit back to the comic to check it, and bam, a new one! Woo.

    Definitely did not expect this turn with Durkon... poor guy's like a Goa'uld from Stargate or a demon on Supernatural.

    Important plot point, though! Durkon IS still in there.

    By the way, I totally called that Durkula wasn't the real Durkon, that he was a totally different person... a villain. So yeah, vindicated again.

    Stake him!

    Loved the art at the end there.

    Crap.

    I was sure that all the "That's not really Durkon" calls were dead wrong

    Wow, what a great way to end the book.

    *tips hat*

    I can honestly say that this is the most engaging and well-thought out story that I have read in a long time.

    Alright, I'll admit it: I was wrong about Durkula.
    I have decided I no longer like my old signature, so from now on, the alphorn-wielding lobster yodeler in my profile pic shall be presented without elaboration.

    So good. So good! I'm going to miss OOTS while it's away but this was really a great book. I feel the whole strip is just hitting on all cylinders; there's a lot of good loose ends out there, some great plot twists, and the art has just been top notch recently with lots of different settings and situations to showcase the artist's talent.

    Keep it up Giant, and hopefully you take a little time off during this hiatus!

    Well, im both relieved that Durkula is in fact a separate entity with malevolent intentions (so he can be killed without feeling guilty) and saddened that Durkon is basically imprisoned.

    So does this mean that Belkar finally gets to take not-Durkon on a trip to Stabbytown?

    Although I definitely didn't expect it to be that stark a line between Durkon and Durkula.
