    let me explain better so ppl wont ban me for saying.. nothing..
    It was a great strip and stuff, plot-wise its really interesting and all.. but i was REALLY expecting something really GREAT you know? Like 200, 300, 400..

    Nonetheless, not saying i disliked, awesome strip, and now i cant wait to see 501, GRRR

    That was a great 500th strip.

    Just when my opinion of Eugene couldn't get any lower, he goes and proves me wrong. Roy was right; nothing he could say or do would ever change someone who doesn't want to be changed. He... just doesn't get it, and that may be the biggest tragedy in the whole damn story.

    The interaction between Eugene and Roy is great, but I honestly can't decide if I should be annoyed that what might've been an answer turns out to be another cliffhanger instead. So I'll just overlook that and say, "Good show!"

    Good show!

    I really can't say. Probably not Elan and Haley, anyway.

    Quite likely, if Elan and Haley were reunited you'd expect Roy to have been raised.

    Hard to believe Eugene agreed that quickly. Maybe he really did want to help his son with something. Wonder if he is changing?

    I know everyone's going to think it's Elan and Haley, but I'm pretty sure it's Kazumi and Daigo.

    And I'm glad to see Roy's growth in regards to his father, even if it is a little disappointing to see just how shallow Eugene really is.

    Oh, and it's good to see the question of how long it took him to get down the mountain answered.

    Well obviously it's not Elan and Haley. There's no way Rich would make something that obvious.

    Odds are, it's not Elan and Haley, unless we're going to get a massive flashback of the events of the past few months. Then again, for all we know the delay in Roy's return to the mortal coil could simply have been from a lack of diamonds. Ressurection spells are meant to be expensive after all, and diamonds are hard to come by out on the ocean, which is where I assume the boats have been all this time.

    Nice! And erm...

    Ok.. that can't possibly be Haley cause then Roy would be getting raised what with him being inside her bag...

    ...unless she lost her bag...

    Ahh, I know, it's so obvious. Miko came back from the dead and married Belkar!

    Great comic, though. Roy's only been dead for a few months and he's really gained some wisdom. I loved that exchange between father and son, you can see who's changed and who never will.

    I dunno. I'm glad Roy's finally figured his dad out, but is the world on the ground going to continue from where Roy knows it? As in, story-wise? Or are we going to see the story of what happened in the months that Roy's been in the afterlife?

    Haley and Belkar get out and manage to make it back to the group. It's been a long time, after all. They're getting married now, Durkon will prepare the resurrection spell in the morning when he is able.

    I just got one question. Are we sure that dad is going to get to go up the mountain once the blood oath is fulfilled? He seems closer to true neutral then lawful good.
