This week in Epic Fail:
Your doesn’t think Martins story is suspenseful. Meanwhile Amuletts tries to warn the party.
That’s it for the Loki segue… for now. It may have taken over slightly, but what can I say? Loki wanted an appearance and one does not argue with a God.
The suspense created by the last page is deflated here, then you’re given a different source of suspense.
This Week in Epic Fail: Yoru finds holes in Martin’s story
Creator’s Commentary: The Spelling Bee joke at the top of this page took me ages to write. It’s probably not that funny. I tried. *Shrug*
Expectation Versus Reality refers to the fact that Yoru is probably getting a very skewed/idealised version of reality. Mind you doesn’t this happen to us all in childhood? He’s a bit too young to realise yet.
By the way when Willi’s chest turned up in our Dungeon’s and Dragons game I genuinely imagined it working the way Yoru does. It was ages before I learned it was Martin’s version. I guess I was using computer game logic. I mean, lots of computer game characters seem to keep their inventory in some mysterious chest cavity so why wouldn’t this be a thing?
This Week in Epic Fail: Martin explains how Spelling Bees are an alternative to combat.
Creator’s Commentary: It could have been Insult Swordfighting.
I’m clearly poking fun at Gollum’s speech impediment here. See a small boy doing an impression of Gollum spelling ‘precious’ (and getting it right unlike in the comic) during a actual Spelling Bee!
Yes, that is M.C. Escher’s ‘Relativity’ recreated in panel 1. Or at least a version thereof. I hope you appreciate that it is not easy to draw. And, no, it isn’t here because I’m an obsessed Labyrinth fan – whatever gave you that idea?!
