    HAH! Yes! Of all of the things that I expected to see in this comic, this wasn't it. That was amazing. That's all I have to say.

    Verily, V saw that the only verdict for verminous Kubato's viciously virulent villainous villainy was vengeance, a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.

    Hilarious and appropriate… yet mildly unsatisfying. Too clean and quick an end for the karmic backlog that Villain worked up.
    The Future just ainít what it used to be.

    This strip makes me happy.

    And it completely revitalised V for me. V was my favorite character, but after his/her long absence after the Invisible spell, and the reclusiveness thereafter, I was losing faith with V. But this strip...

    For one thing, yes, so completely badass. For another thing, it gave me faith that V was still V.

    Now can we PLEASE resume saving the world?

    I was of the crowd that wanted Kubota to come back another day, but I'm not complaining. Best ending for him I could hope for, really.

    Nailed it, Giant.

    I read the comic.

    I read the entire thread. On slow internet.

    While talking to several people on MSN.

    While doing English work.

    I am still laughing.

    I dislike the fact that people are assuming that Rich is trying to move past this arc. The characters are trying to make it go away, and lets face it, do the characters have things always happen the way they want to?

    V knows what kind of mess it would of been for a trail, Kubato knows, Hinjo would know, and Elan is figuring out the mess. V is trying to make it all go away, but in doing so is causing more problems.

    Left evidence of wrongdoing in a house? Burn it down. Then you're running from an Arson rap, and in doing so steal a car, which has its plates reported...

    This isn't aborting the arc, or making it pointless. This is the CLIMAX of the arc, hell, of V's character arc. Anything not related to power or gaining it is pushed out of the way. Morals, laws, and other peoples opinions are brushed aside for V's goals. The fact that he wants to save the world instead of something slightly more selfish just shows that he's Neutral, not Evil

    I, for one, love this twist. Its also a great show of character alingments once again. Hinjo played this in the Lawful good way, and kept the (most likely) Neutral good Elan in line with him. But True Netural V doesn't care about the law, or the morality of killing an evil person who is doing evil things, only the fact that something was in the way of the greater goal. (Not 'good'. Goal.).

    Now instead of a cat-and-mouse trial of Lawful Evil vs. Lawful good, we're going to end up with a much more interesting trial of "Lawful Good vs. Pragmatism" which is a debate on the morality, not on evidence and eye-witnesses. I bet that no one is going to debate what happened as much as 'was it the right thing to do'. Even if the trial is a farce, there are going to be some interesting side-bar conversations between Elan and V. I have no doubt that V would cover this up and say he drowned simply to get it over with as soon as possible, if he thought it was the fastest way to make everyone get over it.

    God but I adore V. That was glorious.

    And I'm of the crowd that has no problem spending 50 strips on a mildly amusing but ultimately inconsequential sidequest. I read the comic becuase it entertains me not just because I'm dying to see what happens next.

    Ah, so the trial of the century is actually V being arrested for the unprovoked murder of an Azure city nobleman.

    And if you don't think it will happen, this is ELAN we're talking about. He'll mess up and say something.

    While Kubota was a bastard and deserved it there's still due process to consider. I can't imagine that this will slide unless V actually wiped him off the charts and this becomes his/her little secret with Elan.

    ... and V is totally some shade of Neutral. Claiming anything else would be akin to claiming Belkar being anything Good.

    I was so satisfied after seeing Kubota's ashes get blown away. Clearly he thought he was a Magnificent Bastard. Clearly he was not.

    I for one am disappointed in Vaarsuvius. I can't think of a more apt target than Kubota for Evan's Spiked Tentacles of Forced Intrusion, and now it's too late!

    Okay... I read the comic... and than I actually shouted out 'YES!!!' (yeah, I shouted the !s as well) and I'm still smiling over it ^^

    Okay, that was 1) something I saw coming, at least V getting rid of this bastard with a Disintegrate,
    2) finally a solution to the Kubota plot,
    3) finally a punishment for the bastard and revenge for Therkla,
    4) a short cut around another arc, which would have taken another ten strips at least (and we already had a trial, so I think the Giant was sure long ago not to get another in)
    and 5) a new CMOA for V ^^

    So then, may the plot advance!

    even in V's sleepless state, she (I think V's a she) still proves that shes awesome and won't deal with distractions like Kubota, really along with Therkla I think the neutrals have the right idea here, Kubota has too much Good Publicity to be put on trial, so the only choice is to kill him.

    however this raises a new problem: what will happen when Kubota is gone, along with Therkla, plus a big demon suddenly appearing then getting turned into a statue while the two most recently made nobles are found beaten and wounded while henchmen of Kubota are found in their room, plus Kubota's death and V's evidence diposal, what could come of this?

    I mean really V what you did was awesome, but what the consequences of it?

    It occurs to me that Vaarsuvius shares character traits with Miko. To me, this seems to parallel the assassination of Lord Shojo, with Elan replacing Hinjo.

    Both seem to believe that 'the ends justify the means' and have a high (though not undeserved) opinion of themselves.

    Just a thought.
    Or is it only that I need not flaunt my power in such an infantile test of will?

    I saw that too. I reread the prophecy and it says the right four words to the right being at the right time, so by a stretch...Maaaybe.

    Then again, guessing right what's going to happen in this comic is sort of like playing a game of Whack-A-Electron, so I'm not quite ready to commit.

    Really, I could say more, but I don't want to. Also, I agree with the Miko/V comparison, although V is always overcalculating and levelheaded, while Miko is the opposite.

    Loved this strip. Kill the bad guy, get rid of the incriminating proofs, move on to next subject.


    Also, this is where the DM makes more rocks fall from the sky. Altough V should be more than used to it, since indeed luck hasn't been on his side.
