    Forget Durcula.
    From now on I'm using "the Thorsaken".
    Or Greg. That works too.

    Those are some fantastic names. I guess we'll have to stick with Durkon* though

    I wonder how much of this was influenced by the forum. I have to say though, I really like "Thorsaken" and "Hel's Shell".

    The Thorsaken is pretty good.

    I mean, not as inventive as Greg, but it's up there.

    Finally the Order gets to considering the question we've been pondering for months: what to call the vampire formerly known as Durkon.

    Nice. Been good to have a couple of strips of light humor to break up the tension before the conflicts come to a head again.

    I'm going with "Greg," myself.

    Belkar is comedy gold.

    EDIT: Also, my vote is for Greg

    Is this the first time we've seen a full face shot of Vaarsuvius? It's certainly one of the few. It really stands out to me.

    I'm upset that they used "Nos-fur-atu" instead of "Norse-feratu.
    That's all I can think of, at any rate.

    Not just the naming part. But also the moron thing and the trolling question.

    I like Undurkon. Still, "Durkon" is not a bad option, perhaps we should use that for the forums as well?

    If there's a name with a pun in it, they'll suggest it. The best part is blackwing raising his wing with a suggestion in that panel. Love it.

    Are you sure we can't call him Nega-Dwarf? I mean if we can't call him Nega-Dwarf, can we get another character called that?

    "Pastor Expiration" has my vote, just barely edging out "The Creature Preacher".

    But "Greg" is easier to type, so I might just go with that.

    For some reason "Pastor Expiration" makes me laugh uproariously and I have no idea why.

    omg HILARIOUS! I love that the different names came gushing out of the team like that, TOO FUNNY. Thank you Giant for such a light hearted strip about a very serious subject. <first page woot!>
    So I said to myself "SELF, if I were you, and I think I am, I would be beside myself in embarrassment, so slap myself silly."

    It must be said: Giant, are you just trolling us at this point?

    p.s. Alphabetically, "GREG" is not very far away from "HPOH".

    If/when Belkar ceases breathing I sincerely hope he still can talk. I'll miss his wit.
