    Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay I knew this was a good time not to go to bed!

    Also, OH *&@! SON. This will be GOOD. I'm not super optimistic about Roy's chances against an epic-tier vampire cleric, but still. That dramatic pose! The look on HPOH's face! Can't wait.

    Cage match! Two men enter, one dashingly handsome Human Fighter leaves!

    Oh. Right. This is when a dozen vamped clerics make an entrance, isn't it?

    And the late notes soar to a higher range,

    Epic.

    Thank you Mr. Giant!


    Edit: cleric of Thor knows the name Thundershield, hrm.

    Also, we still don't know how Belkar fared. He needed to see this moment.

    I really love how Roy reacted. His entire thought process. He is a man that deserves respect.

    Also, holy crap it's about to go down.

    And happy 1000th comic, Giant!

    EDIT: Roy's hands looked weird, and I finally figured out why. They're kinda transparent. The railings are showing through the right ,and the hilt is showing through the left (which is much more noticeable). Is that some kinda wonkiness with the drawing.... thing?

    What does Durkon think of this? I'm curious if Inner Durkula is constantly chatting with Durkon, or if he stopped paying attention, letting Durkon break through and end the proxy-summoning.

    Strip 1000 is finally here! I've been waiting 10 years for this!

    ...well ok, I wasn't waiting for this in particular, but it does make me reflect on the long journey so far - and looking forward to the journey ahead.

    Strip 1000! Woo Hoo! So excited to see Roy vs Durkon.


    Also, Roy's hands are transparent as well as Wrecan's.

    Actually, just about everyone's but Durkon's, and the Gods seem to be transparent for the most part.

    I'm going to assume that Roy's scarf was always more about having something to trail gallantly behind him as opposed to needing it for the cold.
