    Rocket Skates are wonderful :)

    I have only two things to say about this comic

    1. ROCKET SKATES!!!!!

    2. Where the heck did they get rocket skates in a fantasy comic?

    Edit: Well, a wizard probably did it.

    Rocket Skates are a fairly good approxiamtion of 3.0 Boots of Haste. ;D

    3 months. Though he would have got the hint. Not that I fancied a girl for 2 years and got turned down everytime I asked :-[

    Edit: oops, sory, make that 3 semesters.

    On another note, did anyone notice how similar Julia's 'could you narow it down' speach was to Xycons. Maybe she is an exil enchantress who's thinking of taking Necromancy up. We all know that Leaches look better than they did when they were alive (higher charisma score)

    Despite the Giant's irritation with the BB, he's scoring a series of bullseyes with the comics. Class act.

    <3 Thog.

    Rocket skates, teenagers' preoccupation with seeming "cool" and a new LG member who fits in perfectly. This is great.

    Gnomes. Everyone knows Acme employs drunken gnomes to craft their products, using the Craft (Things that Go Boom) skill. That's probably why we haven't seen any gnomes running around (have we?). And they use for raw materials the things they keep stealing from me. You don't just "lose" electronics, they need the components for the rocket skates don'tcha know?

    Amidst the more overt humor of the rocket skates, "...for three semesters" and "it even says so on our business cards!" it might be easy to overlook some of perhaps Rich's subtler humor:

    The fact that "boys" and "wands" happen to be in the same speech bubble. You didn't think they were talking about the technical capabilities of wands, were you?

    Hi, first time posting! Just noticed more opposite stuff

    V = very high minded and overstrung

    Pompey = self effacing, shameful...

    Def opposites...


    Also:

    ROCKETTTT BOOOOTTTSSSS ><

    (wait, aren't they guided, and so missile boots? Possibly... MAGICally guided MISSILE boots?!?!)

    Hey, ring of jumping vs rocket boots...

    Well, you know, teenage boys and their wands... can't get them to stop playing around with them. ;)

    Rich Burlew has perhaps done the most apt and accurate representation of teenage girls I have ever seen in a comic medium. ;D

    I like that Julia's a b*tch. I like that she isn't a goody two shoes wizard (although I do not believe she is a wanna be necromancer. I mean she could be, but somehow I get the sense that Enchantment is more her thing. "Ug. Like, 'enchantment' is one of your prohibited schools. Like I could ever go with a guy who clearly has no skill in charm? What-ever."). I want to see her irritate the Linear Guild to death before the OOTS ever shows up. :)

    I was a bit offended by the blah, blah, blah but the protection from cooties was pretty funny. Its a good thing nale prepared it, lol.

    I'd like to comment on how intresting this is becoming, with Miko, Roy's Sister and ,the Linear Guild. I can't wait to see how Rich is going to finish these problems. At the same time I refuse to predict.
