    I...well, that's a hel of a page.

    Although, I'm still kind of clueless as to how Durkon thinks it'll affect Durkula.

    The Giant has been coming in HAWT lately! And I don't just mean in terms of update speed. The quality has been phenomenal.

    Now I'm really hoping we'll see Durkula go through a change of heart because of all this.

    Note I said hope, not expect.

    EDIT: You know what, the more I think about, from both an out of and in universe perspective, the more I think Durkula's going to have some change of heart. From an out of universe perspective the order needs help and I can't think of anyone other than Durkula that it could come from. And from an in universe perspective it makes sense as well. Roy and Durkula already had a whole discussion on free will back at the Godsmote. And during that Durkula revealed that he doesn't care about Hel's plan. He just wants to hit back at the world that wouldn't stop hitting him. Make sense that he would be affected by an inarguable act of self sacrifice and kindness. It shows that the world isn't quite as vicious as he thought, which was his whole motivation.

    Perhaps... he's trying to make a point about the nature of dwarven honor and self-sacrifice? That Hel isn't the one who got screwed over, the Dwarves are, and that Hel was complicit in that? And that even though they've been given a raw deal, they still keep doing good? "being a dwarf is all about doing your duty, especially if it makes you miserable" and all that?

    This explains a lot.

    It does not explain how our heroes are going to survive.

    Well done, Giant! Edge of my seat, here.

    And shame on me for naysaying the idea.

    I have to agree that Mr. Burlew has stepped up his game. This comic just keeps getting awesomer! (Can I say awesomer on the internet?)

    Except even young Durkon didn't believe it. And the priests thought that Durkmom knew the miners at first. That's not just the nature of dwarven honor and self-sacrifice, that's an exemplary dwarf.

    I cannae believe it indeed!

    Just wow.

    Sergeant Sigdi totally is the "dwarfiest dwarf who ever dwarfed"!

    Nice to see Ponchola/Ponchula/Ponchella smile, but such a cost.

    Oh man! Oh man! Oh man!

    Such a cliffhanger!

    So not touching that dial.

    Any known characters among the resurrected miners? The 'I can't believe it' guy looks kind of familiar.

    Lessee, people still available to save the day: Durkon, and dwarven priest lady breaking her domination. Oh and Belkar's kitty.

    Sigdi's friends. The ones who have strong feelings about her paying back debts.

    Now I have a problem. When the Giant updated irregularly, I could tide myself over by knowing that the next comic will appear when it's ready and not a second before. The plot would be resolved in due time.

    But with this blisteringly breakneck speed he's been updating at, I've begun to hope that the next comic is not far behind. And with a cliffhanger like that, I NEED resolution!! I can't believe it! AAAAAAAAAAAAAA

    Eeeeeehhhhh, maybe? Hel did get screwed over, and so to do Dwarves, but she was complicit in it only as much as she accepted the bargain she was offered. Odin and the others are the ones who screwed both over, so I don't see that making Durkula turn on Hel.

    True, though isn't Durkula just Durkon? One of the spawn?
