    So was there another timeskip? Or am I missing something?

    Made me chuckle.

    Hopefully this will actually be followed by more Roy. Believe it or not, I was starting to miss the bugger.

    BRILLIANT!

    Giant, you're awesome! That was nowhere what I was expecting, but you're simply amazing. Nice anticlimatic joke at the end.

    This is exactly what I wanted for #600. I'm thinking this means we're going to see some Roy-back-to-life action soon.

    Yeah, I'm also kinda wondering what happened time-wise. Everyone seems to be anticipating Roy's departure, but why? It's also stated it's been weeks since Roy returned from the Oracle, but how much in-comic time has gone on since that strip?

    Also, Roy seems to continually ask what time it is, as can be gathered from the archon's response. What are the chances of Roy having visited the Oracle asking him when he was going to be resurrected?

    And a nice "In your face!" for all #600 freaks. ;) Though I can't deny I was anticipating something big too.

    There was a 10 seconds delay between the time I finished reading and thetime I ROFLMAO'ed

    Great strip


    Edit: For all those who didn't understand how could it possibly be 3 years: Roy's not dead for 3 years. His mother is dead for 3 years, so he didn't eat anything she cooked in those 3 years she was dead.

    When I saw the strip heading I thought V was going to fall. Er... turn evil.

    I guess this why we shouldn't speculate too much.

    Or, if you think strip 11 proves V Good and no strip since then has proven otherwise, Turn Neutral.

    I personally don't, but thats me.

    I think that it may just be that Roy has been constantly checking how long he had been practicing.
    I also think he had been training with Horace for a long time without Scrying on Haley and doesn't know about the golem and thieves guild situations.

    How about they take a trip to the basement and say hello to Miko? That'd make my day for the the next strip... oh and finally! No more #600 speculation!

    Yep, we were well and truly due for a change of pace (and scenery) about now. Question is, will this be the real thing for Roy, or just a false alarm?

    Also, there's no way that #666 will be up in time for October 31st this year (surely the most appropriate date for it)... But that date needn't be thrown out the window if the year changes...

    Hey but remember, this doesn't mean Roy is about to get raised. Roy just suspects that by this time Haley and Celia have gotten to Cliffport.
    They still have to find a way to get Roy's skeleton back! Then they still have to find a high level cleric who can cast the spell. For the time being, it doesn't seem like there aren't any clerics that can help them out.
