    Very awesome, but where is he going to cook and other things (like the water in stew part).

    How I love the MITD and his ultimate power. He should have a cult following.

    First time we'd actually see the MITD actually do something impressive / scary semi-purposely. (He had those triangle eyes.)
    Hmm...

    I never understood why cooking is a Profession skill in AD&D, rather than a Craft skill, like alchemy or sculpting.

    That was frickin' brilliant. This is my favorite strip in a long time, and firmly establishes that the Giant still has it (something I was a little concerned about after the last news). This *really* makes me anxious for SoD to get here.

    Absolutely great comic.

    That cooking stuff somehow reminded me of Bilbo Baggins and the trolls...

    Too bad about Skullsy, he could have been the stew pot and provided the fireball for quick cooking.

    Goood Lord!

    The MitD can certainly make itself understood when it wants to. I wonder what it sounds like?

    Now for some cream of vulture stew with scone-cube croutons...

    Looks like Belkar retrieved his Ring of Jumping from Roy in that last panel.

    "Taters"? What's taters? Oh, you mean po-ta-toes!!

    Somehow I think the MitD isn't going to care if the stew is cooked, burned or even recognizable as such, but of course Belkar doesn't know that...

    Loved the shaking effect - very nicely done.

    Also finally got a chance to read all the Dragon Comics - good to mention them. (they're also my favorite, as theres no plot, and they harken back to the first ones, all full of rules interpretations and jokes)

    Yeah, I always wanted a Craft (sandwich) skill.

    I think I like the MITD more and more as this goes on. And I love the SoD tie in with the stew.
