    Is Durkon's beard different?

    I really like Roy's new look, though minor error in the last panel: Roy's arm comes from above his shoulder pad, instead of from under it.

    Poor Durkon. At least he has HD television in prison.

    I'm really happy with the art style change. It gives a little bit greater detail about the arms and legs. Quite a difference with the early stuff, where it was impossible to notice someone's pants (or lack of them)!

    I hope this means Thor's not very happy with the situation. Durkon has always had an interpretation for Thor's weather...will Durkula be able to keep it believable?

    Hmm, a little bit of info about how this all works. Poor Durkon.

    Interesting that Durkon has some control. Whatever the vampire may say, it's clear that he's frustrated by what Durkon is doing. Thus I figure Durkon should keep doing it.

    Roy looks incredibly sweet with his new look, although I'm not sure I like the look of the Greenhilt sword. The crossbar doesn't seem sturdy enough to me.

    I loved the buildup to making it seemed that Durkon sabotaged the airship. Well done!

    not-Durkon, you're terrible and I really hope you die a horrific screaming death that incidentally happens to leave your remains in an easily raised or resurrected form.

    Also, we see Roy and Belkar in the new art style! With the sole exception of the hands (and even that's lessening with time), the new art is fantastic. Especially the second-to-last panel.

    Image file is broken after ship is struck by lightning. Is this intentional as it encompasses the copyright?

    So, that's what Malack meant all those strips ago. It wasn't that his old self was dead, but rather dormant to the point that there was never a need to call upon him again.

    And I was half expecting them to get waylaid by the thieves' guild, scrying bafflers and teleportation be damned.

    I think Thor finally figured out something's up with his cleric and sent lightning to slow him down.

    The new font could use a bit less anti-aliasing, now it looks quite blurry. Otherwise it's an improvement.

    Thor's Nuts, indeed.

    Liking the new Roy details, although that pose is making his arms look mighty long. Still gotta get accustomed to it, I suppose.

    Huh, I wonder if this is Thor getting the message and trying to stop him? And I wonder how much insight this gives into Malack.

    And the artwork is pretty good!

    I'm happy to see more of the new art, the changes and the size makes it look way more polished, I can't say exactly how, but it's nice. Now there are just three more party members to see. :) Though I have to admit it will take a while to get used to how Roy's armor looks like, especially all the flaps at the crotch area. Also the dark spirit's hand when he leaves Durkon to hang seems way too long.
    I also like how Belkar looks no different to me from before, even though he's updated.

    Awesomeness. Anyone have solid information on the invading spirit in Durkon's head/psyche? Apologies if this is a repeat.

    So exciting. Thinking back now on the first time I finished the archive and caught up with the new comics -- right around the beginning of the desert book. And starting the new book in real time is just as enjoyable!
    At least now I can get back to enjoying my glass of elven wine in peace and quiet, without being called on to intervene in someone else's problems.

    I think this tidbit gives us a clue for how Durkon can undermine Durkula's charade, assuming an external force doesn't intervene to help him out. Durkula asks for something, and Durkon technically obliges the wording of the request, but it's entirely the wrong thing, and Durkula slips up a few times and the others catch on.

    Great on the story, as per usual. The new art style continues to bother me though. I feel like I'm looking at a totally different comic.

    I'm gonna need a bit longer to get used to the art change; it's still weird-looking to me. However, this strip above the last one shows me what's possible with it, and I can appreciate the potential.
    I don't actually play D&D. I do play:

    Magic: the Gathering Online (with FREE tournaments at Gatherling)
    DC Universe, my surprisingly good CoH replacement
    Planetside 2, MMO-meets-FPS (and the first shooter I've liked in ages).
    Simunomics - a massive multiplayer Business Simulation Game. Browser-based, free to play.

    I like these smooth-type transitions between story-arcs, although I sometimes wish to see more of the flight itself.

    Also, it's been a while, and I can't remember-does V have any detect thoughts spells? If she accidentally hits Durkon with it... What would happen?

    Belkar is a little different; you can see his hood even when he's not wearing it. Although maybe he just put the hood on with out putting over his head? I really like how crisp this looks, also.

    Good call. I wouldn't be at all surprised if the next panel cuts to Thor.
