    Oh mercy me I just noticed that...

    For some reason I get the feeling that Roy is going to be vaguely annoyed when/if he does finally get raised. Y'know, kinda. A bit.

    Poor, poor Roy.

    His optimism seems sadly misplaced.

    Heh. Glad for the return to humor. Good comic.

    I lol'd at the books Eugene was carrying.

    "I, Robot"
    "Frankenstein"
    "Everything you needed to know about bone golems but were afraid to ask"

    Also, the last three panels. I think I like Eugene now.

    You have to wonder what that kind of book would be filled with...

    That, and why they've been staying in place for that long. Is the situation still heavy by now?

    I just realized... Roy REALLY sounds like a girl with the way he phrased that last line. Hm...

    I think the punchline could use some re-wording. It's too... forced at the moment.

    One complaint, Haley and Celia look emotionless, just strikes me as a bit weird.

    So they've waited for eight days for this cleric of Loki to show up?

    ...BTW, shouldn't Roy need a True Res anyway? He's been dead for quite a while... and True Res doesn't need the original body...

    They're just braiding each other's hair and filing their toenails. They don't have to be smiling about it. Maybe they're just bored and are waiting for Old Blind Pete for something.

    Resurrection is good for one year per caster level, so no, as long as they get the body, plain old Resurrection will suffice.

    True Resurrection doesn't need the body, but does need a 17th level cleric...a considerably harder thing to find than a body whose general location they already know.

    "Cold damage" ... Eugene's books ... "perfect fighter." That's a lot of funny packed in tight! That cranky old man brings the comedy.

    nice.

    I like Roy's dad less and less.

    I'd like to see some movement down there too. At least we're on the right continent now.

    ..Man, it's weird to see Eugene say "Father," when it isn't in reference to him.

    And heh, I'm pretty curious as to why they're just sitting around, myself.

    To me, they didn't look so much "emotionless" as they did "grim."

    1. Only really high level clerics can cast it.
    2. It costs 15,000GP more than Resurrection.
    3. Both Res and True Res have the same time limit: 10 years per caster level.

    Looks like Eugene is asserting his role as the comic's Jerkass. And I'm intrigued as to what Celia and Haley are up to.
