#659 is like my most favorite payoff comic ever.
Yes, sir. Despite V's utter **** up, she/he was still thinking and pulled one out.
Well, even beyond that it was the perfect call-back to every, single Explosive Runes gag prior to that. Don't think it's been used since.
946 It's what inside that counts
Well, that's an appropriate comic title, and I did nto see that coming, at all, nope.
And that's the end of the book it appears.
Dun dun DUUUUUUUUUN
And yet another player in the great game emerges.
EDIT: this music works too:
What do you mean, yet another? I thought it's Malack's spirit that took control over Durkon's body via the staff...
But in any case, that's a pretty huge cliffhanger to end the book with! Did not expect that at all!
Don't think Hel would be consorting with a servant of Nergal, let alone make him/her/it Her High Priest of Hel...
As dp4m mentioned, it's not Malack (though I originally thought that too) - if you read the dialogue between evil-Durkon and Hel carefully it's clearly a new spirit that has taken control of Durkon's body ("...your dark spirit was birthed in my hall.")
But I was actually referring more to Hel's arrival into the plot with her own schemes.
Yeah that passed by me too. Malack is referred to as another being. So this is a new character then.
Right, totally misread that. Sorry!
THIS is how you be specifically vague
OOTS returns tomorrow

Ugh, so many conflicting thoughts and emotions... and that's just about the art upgrade!
I wonder if Durkon's mother is still alive, and how much of an impact she will have since he is destined to bring destruction to his homeland.
It was not needed, but that is a nice upgrade in the art department.
His badass mom only has one arm.
Looove the Durkon backstory. His Mama sure is (was?) badass.
The new coloured hands and legs, not so much. A huge part of the Order of the Stick's charm was that all characters were essentially stick figures. Meh. I'll probably get used to it, but I don't really like it.
Badass Mum is badass. Podgy fingers are podgy.
Huh, I didn't even notice the fingers on the first read; I was distracted by the font, which I'm still unsure on. I certainly enjoy the larger, crisper image format, I tell ya what.
[link=[url]http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0948.html]#948[/url]: Behind the Eyes[/link] - nice to see the High Priest picking up on the important things in dwarven culture.
First look at Roy and Belkar with the art upgrade. Belkar doesn't look that different to me, but Roy's armor looks pretty different with the... armor thigh flap things? Not sure what they are called.
I'm eager to see the rest of the Order with the upgrade.
Belkar seems oddly skeptical for some reason. "Wait a minute, that alignment..."
Thanks to folks who know better than I......"Thor's Taint!"
No, I saw that discussion in the thread there. Doesn't change Belkar's quizzical... quizzicalness.
Oh I am not taking away from Belkar, he has been against vampire Durkon from the beginning. Shall I call it now? Durkula will kill Belkar.
In 737 malack and Durkon talked about Hel
Dun dun duuuun!
Not to mention Thor and Hel arguing.
949 Method Doctor
So the airship is a steampunk type of thing.
Banjo, scalpel. LMAO.
Look at Haley. The joke is still there. No quiver to be seen.
