    I had a feeling that's where this was going. Good on you, Sir O-Chul. It's time someone actually cared for our beloved MitD in-comic.

    Great comic, giant. Love it. I think there was a quote I heard somewhere: "Even in all darkness there is a little light."

    Again, wonderful stuff, Rich. Keep it up.

    Is the game with the "grid" a reference to tic-tac-toe? or GO perhaps? (because of the black and white stones?)

    san is a common japanese honorific, its kinda like japans version "mr" or "ms" but instead you say it after someones name example Mr.guy would be call Guy-San in japanese.

    Yes, it's probably go.

    This is probably my favorite comic so far.

    Monster-san. That's a good one.

    Yay, O-Chul is teaching about friendship!

    I hope O-Chul manages to get out of that place...

    I think it was Backgammon. That seems like a game O-Chul would play. Also, I'm glad Right-Eye was mentioned in this comic, it's be awhile

    I'm thinking Go as well, which, incidentally, is an incredibly difficult game to master. I think we're seeing hints that despite his childlike nature, there may be more raw intelligence than we have previously given the MITD credit for. Maybe it's a child version of a monster that normally has a high Int or Wis score?

    Oh, and awwwwwwwwwwww.
    Congratulations, you can link to TV Tropes. This does not mean you have special insight into the storytelling process, much less the author's mind. Stories don't need to fit into neat boxes, you know.

    The "end of the day" motif this strip has going on makes me think it's the last in the sequence for Team Evil. I wouldn't be surprised if we move on to the Linear Guild now.

    ok, lets start predicting the next comic:

    we were just with Haley, Belkar and Celia so the possible ones are:

    an update on Elan, Durkon and V
    or more likely Linear Guild, we haven't heard from them in a long while, so the next few might be what the Linear Guild has been up to.

    Hey, I was thinking "Awwwww" too!


    Yeah, it's nice that they have a generally amicable relationship. Also it would seem to set things up for the Monster if Azure City were to be retaken in that the possibility that the Monster is swayed to the Azurites' side.

    It's got to be Go, to fit in with the whole Asian theme.

    And yes, "Awwwwwww..."

    And yes, this is probably the end (for now) of the O'Chul sequence. I'd really rather go back to Elan and company, but yes, we'll probably visit the Linear Guild.

    Very touching scene. I don't think O-Chul can overcome the MiTd's long association with and child-like acceptance of Xykon and the gang though.

    But it's a very nice and human sentiment.

    Awwwwwwww...
