    About halfway through working on this, my SO informed me that it was "Shark Week" on Discovery Channel. Weird timing.

    Awesome! I've always wondered why a paladin would choose an aquatic mount... this proves the use... and in such a dramatic way... thanks Giant!!!

    As if Lien need to become more badass. I think she's definitely a supporting cat member now, on par with the Linear gang.

    I suspect that this strip was just an excuse for Rich to draw a really cool shark...twice. :D

    A celestial shark for her paladin special mount...pure genius.

    And how do you sunder a tentacle with a warhammer, anyway?

    Cool, cool, cool, cool, cool, cool... ad infinitium. Sharks area awesome. Celestial sharks are even cooler. That was sweet. I want to do something like that now. That was just awesome.
    Now, are there any paladins in this comic besides Miko who have a regular mount? I hope not, just to see what else the Giant pulls out!
