    Yay! great comic giant. The lawyer jokes are classic, and the giant boot was really something. Isn't the evidence locker fun?

    EDIT: Fixed now.

    Well I thought an OJ reference would get here eventually, excellent as usual Giant.

    A team up of Elan and Rodr. was hilarious.

    Edit: And there's even a Dragonlance reference, that made my week.

    Yay! two minutes late though! the giant is losing his edge ::) .
    I loved Elan's inability to resist assisting someone in need of his special bardic brand of help.

    It's the amazing see-through boot!

    ...but I'm with WeaponMasterLDO. Does the giant boot have anything to do with the giant space cats? Giant booted space cats?

    Well, the plaintiffs in the cases cited are the BBEGs who were bested by unlikely heroes. If they subsequenly took the heroes to court and won, and Celia is casting the OOTS as the unlikely heroes, then the precedent may be relevant.

    I don't know how I feel about not having noticed the transparency thing until you pointed it out, Giant.

    Oh, while on the subject of minor glitches, I was curious, were you aware of/planning on fixing the thing in # 271. The Celia speachbubble thing not being blue/white.

    Actually, do you have any sort of policy on things like that at all? Like do you fix them if you get the time and feel motivated to do so or do you just let them be provided they dont mess up anything or what?

    Sorry if I'm prying or if you've answered these questions a million times before, I'm just curious.

    "if you help with their verse, you'll just make things worse" was my favorite line since Varsuvius giving that long speech that put the goblins to sleep.

    It all depends on how much time I have. I change these things before they go to print in the book, so don't be surprised if a bunch of comics get fixed right around when I announce the next compilation book.

    lol, it appears that Roy has some ranks in Perform(Ryhme Scheme) as well if he was able to come up with Elan's warning.

    Also, I dont get the Riddle v. Board of Ed. joke...could someone please explain?

    oh, and great comic as usual Giant.

    I wonder if Rodriguez has a magic portfolio (or whatever you call his big leather thingy). Jones expects that Rodriguez can pull any desired case file out of there.

    Elan and Rodriguez are so cute together!

    hee! "If you help with their verse, you'll just make things worse"--well worth staying up for! I especially like the downcast look to Elan's face when he says it, too. You just know he's heard it from Roy so many times.

    I also really liked the Comedically Large Boot, as well. Couldn't tell you why--it just tickled me. Ah well, going to bed happy. Giant, as always, thanks for the laughs.

    Is there any particular reason why Celia's mouth is agape in panel one? not to be accusatory, but it seems like she was copy/pasted for the first three panels and Rich forgot the first one.

    Yet another great comic, filled with enough jokes to knock me off my chair.

    Just curious though: Who's Everman? I don't remember any Evermans in Dragonlance...

    You know, my voices are quite similar to that too... And you're right, it's weird.
