    Niiiiice punchline.

    Nice setup for everything else as well, but niiiiiice punchline.


    (omg Roy/Celia love love LURVE!)


    Edit: Also, I never do first page squeeage, but I find the fact that my post is the second response very amusing considering that the last post I made before this was one about not even noticing when the comic was late due to the large difference in timezones between myself and the Giant.

    ;D

    Wow, although late, this was great. One of the best strips in a while. Keep up the good work!

    Is this Oracle in book zero?

    Only by reference. The action picks up after Roy and Durkon get back from their trip there with the knowledge of Xykon's location.

    Hmm I'm a bit confused about why Roy would bother gathering everyone together if he hadn't managed to smuggle Celia out at this point yet ??? Feels like there was a strip missing where Roy was meant to be interrupted.

    The little bump in the curtain that you don't notice until after the reveal was a particularly nice touch.

    Shame that Haley and Elan clearly got nowhere after we left them, judging by her expression. Elan's expression is just his usual clueless smile, so that could mean anything.

    Funny you should say that; it's 9:30 here which is my normal sort of time for checking (from my point of view the strips come out Tuesday and Thursday) and here I am with first page goodness.

    Also: Exactly how many things did V leave explosive runes on and how many times is Belkar going to fall for it before he learns? Hopefully a very large number in both cases

    Second post - first page!

    Good to finally see some movement going on. (Altough I also liked the last-days-of-the-year-strips.)

    It's just to hope that Azure City is still existing when they return from the Oracle.

    Well, considering how Celia appears, Roy must have a pretty decent CON score :P

    Niiiice.

    Haley's still not smiling, though, so I definitely doubt there's resolution on that yet.. And it'll be Monday again before we know..

    The best punchlines are implied. It's implied that Belkar just set off another explosive runes (which goes back to implying that his Wisdom is in the nether realms). It's implied that Roy and Celia just had a wild New Year's night. Likewise, it's implied that one or more members of the OotS walked in before Roy was quite ready for them.

    What I'm implying here is that this was a strip that was worth accidentally staying up to read. ;)

    Mummy and daddy just needed some alone time. To hug. Naked. In bed. Your bed.

    But yeah, why does this comic give me that sense of impending doom and possible gloom?

    It wasn't a big reference, or anything that'll change much, but I agree, you should get the books, if only to support the comic :)

    This is perfect in so many levels! I also feel like one strip was left out from between this one and the last, but I prefer it this way.

    Its probably safer call everyone in and send them off doing something than have them possibly wander in while trying to smuggle her out...

    Its entirely possible that one or more of the party called by Roy's room whichput him in this situation... I agree though, could have been done as a comic. Think the problem is that there are limited panels available and I wouldn't want to drop any of the ones that are there :D

    Huh!... I'm surprised to see Elan and Haley both back already.

    Anyway, the irony of Roy's plan is just wonderful... I suppose it's pretty typical of his luck, though!

    I hope she does, because if they should run into the Linear Guild we could have a huge rant from Nale about how much effort he's put into the whole "evil opposites" thing just for them to get a new member...

    I kinda figured V would have a few more "surprises" waiting for Belkar. I can only imagine what else V rigged with Explosive Runes.
    It's the simple things in life you treasure.

    There are some things in life worth making a fuss over. This probably isn't one of them.

    An interesting twist, as I had counted on the OotS' absence during Xykon's onslaught. I await the LG's intervention...

    On reflection, how do the wings.... affect... um, coordination, in this instance?
