    I like this one. It illustrates the variety inherent in the whole host/parasite vampire thing quite well without spending a lot of panel space.

    Samesies. Also, interesting take on repressed feelings of Evil.

    So...

    1- A poncho? Why?

    2- So... That crazy psychopathic Evil vampire with the Evil host who is discussing the use of a poncho maybe to prevent blood spatter or something... Does anyone else think she might be kinda hot?

    I really don't want to know why a poncho would be a good idea ;)

    I honestly cannot think of how Durkon's memories are going to mess with Durkula, but it seems pretty clear that they are going to at some point. I mean, I guess it's possible that Rich is just showing us them to keep some reader connection with actual Durkon, I suppose.

    I'm looking forward to seeing it, though ;)

    I really want the confrontation to begin!!

    I get the impression that Durkon showed this memory for a reason other than just irritating the vampire, and--based on panel 8--he accomplished whatever he was trying to do.

    Anyone have thoughts on what it might have been? I feel like it has to be related to the wall of rich donors, since Durkon is shown looking directly at it in the memory.

    I wonder--can Durkon be compelled to show the same memory twice? If not, maybe he was deliberately "using up" the only memory containing valuable information that he expects the vampire to ask for later?

    She may not have a name but she just became more interesting than all of the rest of the vampires combined.

    It's interesting that she's not acting subservient to Durkula. He may be her "Master" but she's clearly thinking on her own.

    Have we given her a name, yet?

    Yeah I agree that there is probably more to this than just jokes about office work. Durkon has a plan.

    I dunno--he doesn't look like a man whose clever plan has just started coming together in panel 6, he looks like someone who's beaten.

    And que the countless pages and threads dedicated to debating what evil hijinks the vampiress and her host are planning.
    Also, did she just ask Durkula out?

    The scouring of the Shire never happened. That's right. After reading books I, II, and III, I stopped reading when the One Ring was thrown into Mount Doom. The story ends there. Nothing worthwhile happened afterwards. Middle-Earth was saved.

    My first thought was about sexual connotations and maybe that's why poncho didn't made much sense.
