    Hehehe. Poor Medusa, she never has any luck...

    Is it an error that he says "look, we have a big frickin' army..." twice?; Curse you, Star Woof!

    In panels 6 and 7 Xykon repeats himself. Other than that, great comic- I can't wait to see what Redcloak's evil grin signifies!

    I don't get the funny in this one, except maybe that Xykon has no military clue?.

    Ya know, if I were Xykon I'd go "Redcloak. You are my general. You have my permission to do anything you need to do to capture that gate. You know the price of failure."

    Umm ... I thought it was pretty obvious that

    Redcloak is going to do just as Xykon asks, so that Xykon will be killed (thus the "paint on the target" reference) and Redcloak will be in charge.

    Me neither. Couple funny gags, but overall strip goes over the same territory that was dealt with quite a few times before before - that Redcloak is earnest and conscientious member of Team Evil, and Xykon is casual and aloof.

    Yeah, but that wouldn't be Xykony. That would require intelligent thinking, and besides, I think Xykon wants more troop deaths rather than only a little, it gives him more enjoyment. He only wants the gate, he doesn't care for the army.

    But anyway, I guess Redcloak's troop placement has to do with just smashing through the front or something.

    Not bad. Not bad at all...

    Amusingly, I LARP, and explaining intelligent tactics to other PCs often produces in them the same reaction it had upon Xylon.

    Hm...either Redcloak is trying to get rid of Xykon, or he's just going to use the hobgobs as a diversionary for while Xykon tries to get in...those are my theories.

    That's right - George R. R. Martin; a writer so ruthless, his name is a verb akin to Samuel L. Jackson. Valar morghulis.
