    Yay! First non-Giant post!

    "...life signs: negative..."

    Now that's good stuff! :D

    (Oh, and thank you Giant, for the afternoon update today! I"m going away for two weeks, and I won't be around a computer much, if at all. I was hoping to get one last OOtS fix in before I left! You rock, man.)

    It's nice to see some of the reader's guesses come true...

    They're not going to be too happy to see Eugene back on the upper planes any time soon.

    Ah, exposition, and the difficulty in nomenclature concerning the state of being of the undead. Classic.

    First Post of Second Page!

    this is quite the treat. I thought I was going to have to wait until tonight to read the new comic.
    Is that dramatic moment dead?
    ::pokes with stick::
    yep, its dead.

    Priceless. On the one hand, giant, you killed a dramatic moment and I dont know I I can ever forgive you for that >:( (Kidding ;)). but, on the other, much larger hand, you turned it into a VERY good punchline and alluded to Eugene's penchant for semantics and anal-retentiven blowhardness (first seen in OoPCs, I beleive).

    I salute you

    yep... shakespeare would have had a lot of trouble getting undead into his plays and keeping the drama... "to be or not to be... eh... or to sort of be or almost not be?"

    Wow 15 minutes and there is already 2 pages.

    So is this the "undead, dead is alive" comic?

    At last Roy knows that he is a supreme failure in his father's incoporeal eyes and now we know why he didn't tell Roy sooner about Xykon's phalactery. (sp?)

    See Roy is truly like his father. His father sees him as he sees Elan--sort of. I think his father thinks Roy has more potential that he isn't using and that is why he keeps trying whereas Roy doesn't really try to give Elan any credit for his thinking abilities.

    And nice pun on the "Killing the moment":P

    [munchkin]What's the CR of a dramatic moment? Can't be high, since Eugene killed it by using a free action(speaking).[/munchkin]
    EDIT-I read a manga where the heroes beat the evil side of the hero, then there's a "moment", then one remembers the incantation to his spell, screams it out loud, and get punched by the knight for "ruining the moment."
    Ceika is a beautiful, wonderful person. The avatar was made by his/her great talent, and depending on his/her sex and sexuality, I either have a giant crush or a totally appropriate liking for him/her.
