    Possibly the funniest thing I've ever heard. Good job with the entire afterlife sequence, I have to say its been my favorite part so far.

    It also seems that the celestials are not impressed with Eugene. I guess we're not the only ones to view him as Lawful-mascotforapoliticalparty

    Hoorah for the first joke in OOTS to actually make me laugh out loud in a long time.

    Frequent dying miles...AWESOME.

    Well, Iíll never look at local Government administration the same way again... Although I more see them as bureaucratic devilsÖ Usually bearded ones

    I don't think this comic was up to the Giant's usual high standard, although that could be because the last two strips were the highlight of my week (Itís been a pretty crappy week but they were still brilliance incarnate) but it's still gold. I love the idea of heavenís bureaucrats (A force to be avoided surely) I know the Chinese had their 'Celestial bureaucracy' but I never looked at it like that before and 'Frequent dying miles' was hilarious

    While Eugene getting shot down was good, I particularly liked:

    Not die, but killed. Suggesting that Roy is fated to be KIA again. That could be a funny gag, having Roy keep getting rezed and killed over the next arc.

    He'd be useless, unless the Order was using True Ressurection each time.

    Those would have to be True Ressurections or he would end up behind the power curve of the rest of the party...
