    This comic is quite cute. It made me giggle with glee. I'm enjoying this detour from "Kill the X" and "Find the MacGuffin."

    Character development and romance is quite nice.

    That's great! I didn't even see the magical midnight flight coming ... let alone Celia's Doom!

    Awesome, nice GU reference!

    For those of you who don't read it, GU Comics is a wonderful online comic. If you look at the Archives Search Page, you can search for "The Zapper" entries; these are for MMO games that are ... not doing so well.

    Oh Ehm Gee that was good. But it didn't have as great a joke as the past few. Still decent, but hey.

    Can't..stop..laughing... I think it was funnier because I was expecting a romantic strip, so this came as a shock.

    Edit: Hey I'm right below the Giant's post! It's rather scary that I edited my post just to say that.

    That is just plain awesome. Rich, I'm going to get your book as soon as I have enough money to buy it, in a vain hope that it will accellerate your comic-making abilities.

    It's funny, MY webcomic updates more often than this one...
    "...I worry that modern gaming is gradually shrinking the wide spectrum of gameplay mechanics into a single narrow red bar with "KILL" written on it sideways. Exploration, navigation, puzzles, platforming, all gradually shrinking away until only one thing remains, being taken by the hand from room to room, moving on only when nothing remains alive in each one." - Yhatzee Crosshaw

    Another laugh-out-loud strip. For me, the strips have been excellent over the last week or two.

    I think the reason is that there's some kind of joke at the end of every strip, lately. You've been doing character development & plot well for a while, but this is (I think) meant to be a humorous comic as well, and it's simply more enjoyable if there's a good joke at the end.

    Both the 'bla' and the moth to a flame were great.

    Heheh. I'm surprised that Roy was so calm when he opened his eyes, though I suppose he must have felt what she was doing (so it wouldn't exactly be a surprise). I imagine the wing-beating she had to do to get the both of them aloft would have been rather audible, as well.

    And for some odd reason, I can't help thinking that this is a moment of Elan-ness on Celia's part. :P Maybe it's just the look on Roy's face that has almost always been associated with Elan in some way or another. ;)

    Also wondering if the comment about Elan is simply a continuation of the conversation to that point. After all, there'd be more than enough Elan fodder for an entire long dinner conversation. That would really suck for Celia, though; it's not exactly date material.

    I did like the comment about being a person, not just a class/race alignment combo. That made me laugh more than anything I guess. Wait, except for the swirly circles in Celia's eyes. Nope! Snarf! the swirlies made me laugh the most.

    Celia's pretty darn strong!

    I hope the attraction to light will come back as a throwaway joke later :P
