    Yaaaaaaay!

    I'm still laughing about the Stick up Ass joke, I loved the Miko/Roy conversation going like this:
    "You need to compromise a little." - "A paladin never compromises." - "Does a paladin ever
    remove the stick from their ass?" - "No. It's a class feature."

    And I love this last one even more.

    Yay Giant, Yay!

    Another great comic. Loved the "class feature" coming up again. Loved the epic scope. And as a home owner, I can attest that you really need to make sure all that construction is up to code . . .

    Great set of strips, Giant. I'm thoroughly enjoying the "back" story of this and even - glutton for punishment that I am - am enjoying the "cliff-hanger"ness of it all. :D

    I really like what you've done with the whole crayon exposition. I smiled when I saw the striking similarities between the initial rift closers and our current friends.

    Your work is fresh and fun. Keep up the good work, and remember that if we whine, it's only because we're jonesing.

    Cutting corners to skim money for the rumpus room? Blast it! Will they never learn that such pointless excesses lead to a weakening of the very fabric of existence???? Ah well, gotta go play video games.

    Great strip Giant, well worth the wait. Look forward to further exposition.

    OK, this rocks!

    Not only was there great art and moving story progression but two of the great moments from literature and film:

    The Man still owes be money and shifty sub-contractors.

    While I haven't made any guess one way or the other on the Soon vs. Shojo thread, what in this comic made you think conclusively that he isn't?

    A part of me wonders why Soon can't arrange for his wife to be Raised from the Dead.

    Another part answers that, if the Snarl can destroy things on the most fundamental level, that implies it can - no, must - annihilate souls when it attacks.

    No trip to the Outer Planes. No eternity with a beloved god (or followed cause, if you're into that sort of thing). No Raise Dead. No Resurrection. No nothing. Just Unmaking.

    Mijung and Kraagor aren't dead. You can return from the dead. They've ceased to be, as if they never were, and nothing - not a Wish, not the intervention of a god, nothing - can bring them back again.

    Yes, sorry, it's implied in #274 that the Snarl devours souls when it kills you. No resurrection is possible.

    Wait, wait, wait.

    In #196, Xycon says that Serini recorded the locations whilst the other five party members built the strongholds, but we pretty clearly see Kraagor getting turned to stone in today's. How does one build a gate when one cannot move?

    Giant, I salute you.

    "the holes have a right to exist." sounds like a enviromentalist crossed with a apocalypse cult.

    First Page!

    Good to see it up before I had to sleep.

    Not as funny as "dude, dont taunt the god-killing abomination," but still quite funny

    My colors are Blue/Green. I value versitality, knowledge, evolution, and the nautral world. I have a deep fascination with living things, and a natural talent for adaptation. At my best, I am intuitive and adaptive. At my worst, I am isolated and unsympathetic. My symbol is the twisted tree, and my enemy is Red/Black.

    Also, I suggest that when more gaming content is added to this site again, the very first thing that goes up should be the stats for the dreaded Baron Pineapple.

    So, like all other things in life, we can blame the gate problem on landscapers... lousy freeloaders. I wonder what kind of corners you can cut on a reality strengthening gate?

    Did anyone else notice the reference to the missing water sigil way back when?

    Great comic, Giant. Worth the wait for me. I hope it was worth the lack of sleep for you. I've found each strip in this crayon series is better than the one before it, and the story continues tomorrow bit is a thing of last-minute genius.

    I look forward to the conclusion.
