    Aw, that's so... sad.

    This is going on my list of favorites.
    Yes. None of us have ever tampered with the fundamental natural order when bored. That would be wrong.

    Emotionally impacting, and explains away a possible continuity error. My favorite kind of comic.

    "Wanna play block with me?"

    "More than anything."


    That right there tells the whole story. Some things are just more important than others.

    So, the mythical third child exists. The OMGness will soon fade and the sadness will soon take over.

    Rich! You sick bastard!!

    You're going to raise Roy just as he starts to play with his brother.

    Man, that is just plain wrong! I know you like to torture your characters... it's what makes for good writing, but I think this is crossing the line.

    Once again, YOU BASTARD!!

    I can already guess.

    Mrs. Greenhilt was away, and Eugene was performing an experiment. Roy tried to warn him not to do that around his little brother, but the old man blew him off. Sure enough, there's an explosion, and Roy's the only survivor of the three. Eugene gets brought back, but there's no reply from baby bro.

    Wow. Really well done.

    I am consistently amazed at the level of emotional reaction I can have for stick figures. Kudos, Giant!

    AWESOME. Although I do have to say, that was a totally unexpected plot twist. So whoever the baby is... would be the second child...?

    In the comic where Xykon broke Roy's Sword, one of the flashbacks had a little child behind his mother's chair. People suspected it was a third Greenhilt child, since if Julia was born back then, Roy, a 12 year old at that moment, would be going 'twack twack' with a toy sword.

    That was one thing I definately didn't see coming, was the third sibling ever mentioned in the comic earlier.

    Unholy Crappola! Well, well, now... It seems being dead is a pretty revealing state for Roy to be in...

    Wtfwtfwtfwtf????

    Crikey, all these dead relatives explain a lot about the Greenhilts' personalities and family dynamics. It also places Roy in danger of overtaking Haley in the angst department.

    EDIT: I believe this is what tvtropes would call a "Tomato in the Mirror".

    I guess that puts an end to all speculation about "Eldest Son"...

    How can the baby been there for 18 years?
