    Well I was certainly wrong about Minrah.

    As much as I expected this, it's still cool, and I love the imagery of Minrah turning around while already halfway across Bifrost.

    I also love the fact that she wants to be alive so she can “have kids, adopt kids, or decide [she doesn't] want kids.”

    I'm really sad we didn't get to see Durkon back to the land of the living... Hopefully next comic starts with him being punched in the face again, only this time by Hilgya and/or Belkar

    Wooo, more Minrah!

    I did not expect this to happen, but I think I understand her decision. Party in Valhalla is great, but that also pretty much means she is done with choices.

    I wonder what Minrah will do after she's resurrected? Do we have a new OOTS sidekick? Everyone seems to be getting or has a sidekick.... Banjo, Mr. Scruffy, Blackwing, Bloodfeast, Minrah, Elan....

    When Durkon does contact Thor, his Commune spell will have to be very carefully worded; RAW it needs to be yes/no questions.

    So when Durkon casts Commune, one of Thor's minions answers instead?

    Huh, well that's a thing. I get it, though I wouldn't get my hopes up for her being immediately revived or plot-relevant.

    Good for Minrah. I felt like she'd get brought back since she was there for the big important Snarl exposition, and I've spent enough time with the kid with the puppet to know that matters.

    Also, aww, Durkon. Your devotion to your god is really heartwarming. What a good cleric.

    I had a feeling she wasn't done yet. You can't just hear the great cosmic secret of the universe and then just be like, "Well... good luck with that! See ya!"

    That would be comedy disrupting a potentially very dramatic moment, rather than comedy in a vacuum. I'd rather not bet on that, myself.

    Good for Minrah! Because she's right, she is NOT done yet. Not if she has any of the characteristics that one would hope it find in a cleric of Thor.

    I was expecting her to jump into the ring and get dragged down in some weird mass resurrection thing. Either that, or Thor pushing her into the ring and saying, "you go girl!"

    Not the great cosmic secret of the universe. The planet within the planet still has yet to be explained, since Thor said all the previous worlds were destroyed.

    For my part, I wouldn't be surprised if Rich handwaves that Commune functions like Greg's chats with Hel, shrugging, "Only yes-or-no questions by D&D rules, yes, I don't care."

    "I still have stuff I wanted to do." strikes me as an almost-universal complaint by those who die young (and many who don't). Given how few people get raised, I'm not sure if that's sufficient reason.

    Entirely possible that Durkon won't have the opportunity to raise Minrah until after the whole main plot is resolved, at which point Minrah will be like "The world's out of danger? On second thought, I'm good staying in Valhalla."

    A sufficient reason for what? For folks wanting to get raised, or for people to want to raise them?

    Minrah's speech bubble on page 2 panel 2 has an error. "Or Or decide if I even want kids". With two "Or"'s.

    Edit: Fixed now.
