    New comic is up.

    Good to see Durkon back on his feet. Again.

    ETA: I would totally buy a mug with "I reserve my right to respond to idiocy with divine cleansing fire" on it.

    So the gods don't know whats up with the planet either? Interesting.

    Welp, Durkon can look forward to some protracted and spirited negotiations over Kudzu's custody & visitation rights.

    Also, good to confirm that the gods (Thor at least) are ignorant about the contents of the riff, not deceptive.

    And a happy new year! (almost).

    Hilarious lines from pretty much everyone.

    I knew Thor didn't know about the planet within the planet, but now it looks like Odin didn't either. So he really was talking nonsense (also known as prophetizing) back at the Moot.

    A hell of a start for the new year!

    The gods not knowing about that planet is certainly curious. Could the Snarl have made it's own world over time?

    Love everyone's expressions in the last panel. Also, I can't help but wonder whether robed Durkon is going to be a thing now, much the same way V's been rocking that ponytail since their own arc.

    At least one of the clerics can use their Wisdom score properly. Good to get the plot back on track.

    Also, V seemed to possibly know, but not care.

    I've been envisioning a group of gamblers who have been sweating bets on whether or not Durkon would end the year alive going through a huge emotional rollercoaster with these last two strips.

    When your friends dont know the difference between yourself and an evil undead parasite. I am glad that Durkon chewed on them even if a little.

    Oopsie, guess the gods don't know as much about the Snarl as they think they do. I bet in the end the result will be something other than "we lock the Snarl up again, even if its for good this time"

    That was hilarious. I laughed at Roy's arms falling asleep more than I probably should have. Good thing they didn't need to fight Hilgya - it's hard to see how that'd have gone well with Kudzu in the middle.

    Why did you know that Thor didn't know? You probably remember something I don't.

    As for Odin, I'm not sure. The "yarn winding yarn" line might suggest he knows at some level, but perhaps his worship-deficiency-induced senility prevents him from knowing it consciously.

    The Exarch and a few others...

    So not just the nameless one Gontor* took with him then.

    Another vampire is still unaccounted for.

    So either two is enough to qualify as "a few" or there are yet more spawns. My guess of Firmament not being completely rid of vampires by the end of the Order's stay here looks less improbable than one strip ago.

    Roy's speech bubble in page 2, panel 7 has an error.

    "Unless I'm mistaken, Durkon some of the vampire's little minions were missing from the fight scene, so we're not out of the woods just yet."

    There should be a comma after "Durkon".

    The opposite. I found it odd that he didn't mention it once to Durkon, not even in a "And we have no idea what this means!" way.

    Yes that's a good possiblity. This way he can plays the exposition fairy later on when he's saner.)

    Frankly if anyone still has doubts after her third and second-to-last lines here, nothing will change their mind.

    So Snarl pulled a string over the Gods' eyes. Interesting...
    But V and Blackwing know about the planet within the planet; the three fiends might know as well and their superiors. But not Thor and Odin?

    Blackwing saw it of his own eyes and the Gods spent eons doing everything they can to stay the hell away from it.

    I see. I was a bit of an agnostic because I could imagine reasons why Thor wouldn't mention it and those reasons being important later on, but truth be told I didn't really think about it that much. This makes more sense and it's simpler, too.

    The surprise on everyone’s face in the afterlife was priceless. Interesting, however, that they have no clue about the planet inside the rift!

    The discussion between Hilgya and Durkon is very illuminating. I think Durkon realizes that he went too far, while Hilgya continues to Hilgya.

    I’m expecting that the next several strips will tie up the vampire plot threads, and then we’ll probably be pretty close to done with the book.
