    Glad you're feeling better Rich.

    The REAL question from this is why Thog would be carrying around a copy of Celine Dion live in concert if Nale didn't ask him to. Could he just love that beautiful Quebequois praying mantis woman?

    Given what we know about Thog and pretty girls, it's quite possible.

    Great comic, Giant! Good to have you back!

    And particularly: Nale's rant eyes in the second-to-last panel...mwa-ha-ha. Love it!

    Well worth the wait - at least half of the panels have absolute gems in them (the exchange in the 6th panel earns an immediate place on my all-time favorites list). This one was par for the course with OotS - which means it was great ;)

    You know, I only just realised that it's the teeth that make Thog look like he's grinning madly even when he's going >:(.

    Glad to see the injured reserve list hasn't slowed you down, Giant! Fantastic comic. From the slam on anime to wonderful use of torturistic Dion, truly, one of your most brilliant creations. Bravo. As for why Thog carries around Dion album, we have established he is truly evil. I was just surprised he is that evil.

    On a personal note, I find it hilarious that I was using sending in a gaming session only this evening. Heh. You rock, Giant.

    Whoa! I actually made the first page!

    Now, for what Nale has in mind for Elan...

    I love the implications of Julia telling Nale he'd look better without his goatee. I'm sure Nale is thrilled to hear that someone thinks his good twin is better-looking than he is.

    GLad to have you back, Mr. Giant.


    And I must say, I like Thog a whole lot more now that I know he's into vinyl. Not that I did't like him before, of course. Heh.

    great comic , thog is really evil for even suggesting that i mean celine is bad enough but live oh god.

    what confuses me is that there is hentai stores in a cartoon so what is it real pictures?

    [unofficial]Yes. Hentai in OotS is actual photographs.[/unofficial]

    [Phillip]Hello, Celine Dion.[/Phillip]

    An excellent comic worth the wait. Slightly more real-world-referential than normal (the hentai and Celien Dion gags, particularly,) and with some slightly forced conversation for the trvia-pursuing fans. Though maybe their ages will have some significance later. Also, I calculated Julia's age 100% correctly last thread. Go me.

    I shouldn't read this at midnight. I don't want to wake anybody up by laughing out loud. Half-elf aging joke is great. Still, my favorite one so far is the one about Nale's Beard.

    so if Nale is 21, obviously so is Elan. So Haley goes for younger guys. Good for her!

    Evil criticism of Celine giant! but then, I've never heard celine live, so I guess its that bad.

    I guess that's nale's lawful alignment speaking up. :P

    Thanks, Giant. It's going to be hours before I get that Arrogant Warms tune out of my head.

    I like Nale's expression in response to Julia's last comment, but I can't help realize how much it would annoy her older brother as well if he knew what she'd just said. ;D

    BWAH!

    Based on the goatee comment, I can't wait until Julia meets Elan. At least she didn't say she likes short guys... ;D

    OMG! Thats evil. I was once tortured with a Celine Dion album, and it is something no man or stick should have to endure.

    *starts humming the Weird Al 'Achy Breaky song* I can see that being adapted to Celine pretty easily. But yeah, this was another great comic.

    Heh heh the hentai store... and Nale's beard... heh that's just killing me:) If Julia really likes how Nale looks without a beard i suppose she will fall victim to some nasty sort of a sneak attack once she meets the OOTS:))
    me love thog

    Hi there!
    Good job! Really good jokes :) (especially about the beard... *giggle* - Nale really earned that one).

    But one - hopefully not so nitpicking - question:
    Has Pompey a "cape of blinking"?
    The golden decoration just vanishes at the 3d and 8th panel.
    Hooray for magic Roaches!!!
    They┤re most helpful - and quite tasty on toast...
