    ...wha...?

    I'm more than a little confused now. Although Belkar definitely is a one-dimensional character.

    Possibly the most meta of OotS to date.

    I can safely say that none of us expected the comic to turn to a Belkar-centered character development fever dream.

    It'd better be at least eight and a half minutes into the casting. Scratch that, 9.2.

    I always get confused about which is how many dimensions... I always think a POINT is one dimensional, a line is two, and a plane is three. I know, I know, I have it wrong... one of maybe three people who can't keep it straight. In the end, all I know is...

    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.

    Belkar might be naked. You can't tell.

    ...Did Shojo always hold Mr. Scruffy with one hand like that? It looks fairly uncomfortable.

    I love how Burlew keeps finding new ways to incorporate a character that's been dead for over 150 strips into his comics. I'm surprised Roy hasn't met him visiting a friend on the Lawful Good plane of the afterlife.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! My favorite Heroic Sociopath might be getting Character Development!

    Well, I still have Black Mage...

    That said, this is the first comic in a while that hasn't left me with a "oh, great, this story line is STILL going on..." feeling.

    I'll stick to my prediction Belkar will still be alive in January, which should be around strip 620.


    Oh yes, that is not the way to hold a cat. One gives its feet a support.

    Outstanding that Shojo makes an appearance again, and that he cuts Belkar down to size.

    Maddeningly confusing. But just seeing Shojo again and having the chance to note suspicious similarities between him and Nameless Cleric brings a grin to my face.

    Actually, I get the feeling this is the end of Belkar as we know him. He'll ever be dead or a changed person when he gets out of this...

    maybe.
