    cool OOTS #441 - The Discussion Thread

    New comic is up.

    Apologies again for lateness; I'm still sick, and I'm now on extra-drowsy medicine. I slept from noon yesterday until 5:00 this morning.

    I'm going to redouble my efforts so this doesn't happen again on Friday.

    An anti-climactic, yet awesome end for the Death Knight.

    Or is it? DUN DUN DUN!

    Also, Roy really needs to invest in Knowledge (religion). Really does.

    I hope V cast something nasty on Xykon after that insult. He basically said V had no effect at all.

    Xykon: So your big heroic display of defiance right there actually managed to accomplish no practical effect whatsoever.

    *Dragon head crushes Death Knight*

    Xykon: Absolutely no effect at all.

    AWESOME, Giant. The least likely resolution to the V-Death Knight fight I could have imagined. And the funniest. That was just sweet.

    I'm conflicted.
    On one hand, it's too bad for Roy that Xykon's spoiled another badass moment for him.
    Then again, he could also cut the dragon's wings.
    On the other hand, I'm glad that Varsuvius is okay.
    Then again, I'm disappointed he wasn't able to think up a way out of this then.
    On the other hand...It was freakin' funny!

    You know, I wonder if you could just keep cutting of dragon until you got the least amount needed to fly, then race it...

    Yes! Superb and unexpected. I wonder how long it was planned for?

    Does anyone else think Xykon is sounding more and more like Dr. Evil? He just needs a Mini-Me...!

    I think this was the funniest comic since Redcloak and the elementals.

    Now I've seen the death knight's head fall off, I wish the Giant had played Curse of the Monkey Island.

    So many possibilities of Murray references.

    Nice one Giant! Concentrate on getting better first though. No sense suffering for longer than you have to.

    And was Roy considering that he'd fly too far from Belkar and trigger the MoJ there? If so, that's a pretty keen observation when you're busy fighting a lich.

    I accidently hit page down and ruined the surprise for myself before I read everything. I still loved it it though. Fan-freaking-tastic.
