    Does the technique's name mean Solomon's going to try forcing Jagganoth into the cycle of reincarnation?

Now, this setting has magic, so I'm not expecting conservation of energy, but if it were observed, hypothetically this ultimate attack would convert all of Solomon's mass to energy. How big of an explosion would that make? Well, 1 kilogram of matter is equivalent to 10^16 Joules of energy. Solomon is probably on the order of 100 kg, so that's 10^18 J.

    Looking it up, that's about 240 megatons of TNT. By way of comparison, this is about five times the yield of the Tsar Bomba, the most powerful nuclear weapon ever detonated, and a bit higher than the energy released by the 1883 eruption of Krakatoa. This nearly destroyed the (fairly small) island Krakatoa was on. That said, it's still orders of magnitude lower than the energy of the Mount Tambora eruption or the hourly influx of solar energy across Earth, and vastly lower than the energy of the impact that wiped out the dinosaurs. Throne is in trouble, but if Solomon is limited by conservation of energy, it should at least still exist after this.
    9*10^16 so about an order of magnitude more. but yeah not quite world destroying.
    Though from a recent chapter comment throne isn't world sized
    Yes, sort of. If I remember correctly, Word-of-God(author) says that Throne is roughly the size of California, so large chunks of it can be aquatic and still leave a significant amount of room for the action to take place in.
    On the other hand, who knows how sturdy it is compared to a normal world. Well it isn't what he is doing so i suppose it doesn't matter.

    Remember to hit the back button, because it was a double update.

    It seemed a little uncertain.
    Could also just be the impact from the technique before.
    But oh dam the previous comic was intense. And thanks for the heads up on the double update.
    thnx to Starwoof for the fine avatar

    Dude's still only using the one hand though. Probably should have sprung for a two-hand technique. I'm willing to bet Jag survives.

    I don't think that's correct. Ki rata works by concentrating "force on a point smaller than a pin-prick, giving blows absolutely phenomenal power." It seems to me that when you're using multiple points, you'd want them to be as closely concentrated as possible, to deliver the attack on as small a portion of your opponent's body as possible. If I'm correct, a ten-finger, 77-point strike would be less powerful than a five-finger, 77 point strike.

    Also, Solomon David is one of the top three or so fighters in the universe. I think it's safe to assume he knows what he's doing.

    I do agree that Jagganoth is definitely going to survive, though.

    Next update will apparently be a doozy. 12 pages is a lot! I'm glad to hear there's still a lot more story left to tell; this fight hasn't exactly been dedicated to tying up character arcs of the leads, just some of the demiurges.

    This is literally the start of the last book, there is an entire book to go after the fight is over and always has been? Nevermind looks like there is a book 6 now as well. Either way there was always going to be more plot after the fight.

    Quite probably yes! Of course merely being dead does not mean one stops existing, especially not when you've seen the shape of the Wheel and know the difference between life and death is just another great cosmic lie.. Jadis 'dying' may just have pulled a Force Ghost and freed her from the restrictions of her corporeal body.

    I really hoped for a happy end for Cio (and maybe Allison).
    Maybe good writing is sometimes sad.

    Agreed, I'm going to trust that it will play out well (if not happily)...but damb that's difficult!

    I wouldn't count Cio out yet - this isn't the first time her mask has been destroyed, after all.

    It dissolved into goo. She is dead for goo-d.
    Not sorry for that low pun.
