    First post and all that aside, I think it is a very good comic. I really like how Elan is portrayed-as well as his relations with the rest of the group. While these Elan panels are IMHO not comical at all if you look at them carefully, they're just as important.


    If all you have is a hammer, don't be lazy; be a blacksmith and start making more stuff.

    Guilty. Wait, not guilty. Wait, Mr Scruffy has something to say. I think that vote will mean something, or not. Good comic anyway. Elan is right. It's gonna be tough to figure out who to vote for.

    You know it's going to be a cutaway to the Belkar chase scene. Or redcloak / xyklon

    Er... Giant, could you make extra certain you stay out from underneath 16 tonne weights this weekend, especially those positioned carefully above a plate of free Burlew-feed?

    You know those weights never drop until the Giant leaves and the Coyote goes to figure out why the weight refused to drop.

    It's nice to see how it's actually the BARD that causes the suspence and cliffhanger, as duly noted by Roy!

    Way to go, Elan!

    Brilliant ending! ;D

    I liked this strip for three reasons:
    1. Good, fun interactions between the characters.
    2. Cliffhanger!
    3. Excellent last puchlines from Roy and Elan.

    Go Giant! :D
    Move along...&&Nothing to see here... yet...

    I also love it how Haley has resigned herself that she can't communicate by talking and so resorted to non-verbal way of conveying her message to Roy. And, boy, does her look ever speak volumes? Pretty amazing job, considering she is just a stick figure.

    I agree with other posters. In the great alignment debate, Giant has just demonstrated he is evil. Evil! With a capital E. And will be with a capital V, capital I and capital L if next streep is a cutaway to anyone besided Miko/Belkar.

    I second that.

    Why do I have the suspicion Roy will come to regret this?

    Makes sense, though. Rich is an Artist, he just draws this way because it's humorous.
