    So... we now have confirmation that Southerners and Northerners share the same mountain. Helps bolster the "Roy will meet Miko in the Afterlife" theory.

    Also, YAY! Bandanna Paladin! Wonder if we'll see any other pallies as well.

    Hey, whatever happened to that comic about Bandanna Paladin anyway?

    It's nice to have confirmation that Rich's idea of heaven isn't satisfying sensory drives over and over again.

    Wohoo, bandana paladin proves that it's probable/possible that Roy might have a face to face talk with Miko, provided her case handler was as lenient as Roy's.

    Should this be marked a spoiler? We'll see in 1-10 pages from now I guess.

    Awesome title, "eye of the pig", return of the bandana paladin, "hands", interesting plot information, nutty panels, all in all a very quirky strip.

    "It's so I don't strangle smartass newbies".

    Heh.

    Seems like we'll stick with Roy until the round number, methinks.


    EDIT: being unacquainted with Led Zeppelin, I have no idea what the lie is... something about the stairway, yes?

    1. As an online discussion on the Order of the Stick forum grows longer, the probability of Miko Myazaki being mentioned approaches unity.
    2. He who mentions her in a disparaging way when irrelevant to the thread topic loses the argument.
    Fanclubbery list:

    Miko fanclub.

    Roy fanclub.

    Hinjo fanclub.

    The Chief fanclub.

    The Xykon fanclub. Because Evil is just that cool.

    Hmph. The last two comics are of below average quality, if you ask me.

    I am aware no one's asking. I'll just go to bed, since it's almost midnight where I am.

    Monks were complaining about an escalator? My high school was run by monks and if they couldn't do something in the most energy-efficient way possible, they didn't do it (coincidentally, it's the same high school that the lead singer of Survivor- of Eye of the Tiger fame- went to school, so it's an strange mixing of elements to me).

    Excellent new comic. Great job :)

    Interesting that some of the casualties of the war had been processed and ended up on the same side of the mountain as roy. Looks like in the end it doesn't matter what you are or where you come from...

    I love the comic title, and I find it hilarious that even in Heaven, Roy can't catch a break.

    Ehhhh, yeah.


    Heaven's a little more traditional than I thought.


    I'll be honest, though. The entire structure seems to be banking on people being religious. Roy is not. He's not an atheist, since he knows the gods exist. He's what I like to call in those universes where we KNOW the gods exist an... apatheist.


    So what, in fact, are the actual odds that Roy is gonna start being particularly interested in "spiritual fare?"

    Seriously.
    Wait. I think I just failed a spot check. Really? I don't see anything. Exactly.
    Goblin Ninjas: Ummm... We're like RIGHT here. Wait! I think I just failed a listen check.

    He's starting to really milk this. Of course it tastes pretty good and is not apt to go sour any time soon [and is coming in plentiful portions], but ...

    OK, we've identified one NPC. Anybody know the others? I can't be sure, but both girl and shorty seem familiar.
