    That was sad. Hope Kubota gets his comuppance soon.

    Damn, so Therkla died and Kubota gets away with it? That's just mean. Good comic though.

    I don't see how he could get away with it to be honest (I'm not sure whether I expected that or not).

    Poor Therkla, doubt she'll be raised but maybe we can get a glimpse of what after-life she ascends to.

    Kubota "got away" for half a strip, so far. I'm confident that Kubota will get what's coming to him.

    I suspect sooner rather than later. Isn't Vaarsuvius flying toward the ship now?


    Strip reaction:

    *sniff* *sob*.

    But in a good way. I hope Therkla goes to one of the good afterlives.

    Well done -- although we still need this arc tied up with Qarr and Kurota still lose.

    Heh .. I have to commend the giant. This is the first villain he's built that I've actively *hated*. Xykon is utter evil, but he's also comedic. Redcloak is tragic. Kuroda? Just nasty.

    I'm assuming this is building towards a HORRIFYING fate for that individual, in the near future

    There were 3 people who Hinjo trusts who saw what happened, and a Speak With Dead spell would get more information.

    Alas, poor Therkla.

    Of course, if they get 5000 GP worth of Diamonds she's back on her feet, but such an emotional death scene usually isn't reversed so easily. Especially since it is a "Redemption Equals Death"

    On the other hand, the Giant loves messing with tropes like that, so the jury is still out on this.

    Tempest - the issue isn't whether they can prove it to Hinjo, it's whether Hinjo can prove it to the other nobles.

    I'm fairly certain that, judging by her last words, she wouldn't even be coming back then.

    Aw... Poor Therkla. Of course, that gives Elan a good dramatic revenge opportunity, but still...

    What's that little thing right next to the big junk on the last panel? A little boat? Kubota?

    I forgot about that. Wouldn;t the dead Samarai and Ninjas class as proof that Kubota was there if the Samarai are recognised, though? I'm assuming it is his rowing boat.

    I guess all those who were saying she was doomed were right. (And I'm sure there is a TV trope about how baddies who switch sides are generally doomed.)

    But I was still hoping she'd survive.

    Just a hunch. I think Kubota's 15 minutes are close to being up.

    Meh...

    Vaarsuvius meeting and blastin' K's boat into the ocean is too predictable...I think that the giant will come up with something more fun, perhaps involving K living.

    Redemption Equals Death.

    Damn. Just...damn. Poor girl. Saying that, I think Kubota's being overly confident. Hinjo can now have sworn evidence from two members of the nobility. Even if other members disagree, he's well within the law to be able to arrest, try, convict, and execute Kubota.

    About the corpses of the samurai and the ninja, I didn't see any of them in this comic. Did they just dissolve? Were they an illusion? Is it a mistake in the art?

    To be honest - i didn't like this comic.

    People started to like Therkla. And just then she dies. okay so far, but than the long speech saying "I won't be resurrected" ... Throwing a fine character away like that.
    It reminded me too much of Miko (except noone liked her).
    It's too much of a "introduce likeable/dislikable chatacter and kill him later for good"
