    I like Biscuit. Can we keep him? Long-term, I mean? And, anybody who can casually bad mouth Klik to its circumference and do the same to the Viper Clan's collective mugs is a keeper.

    I'm even growing attached to the whole mostly-transparent hair and mouth thing of his, which I didn't think I would. At first.

    Eh, it's not *that* hard. It would be fairly mumbled, and some words would come through less clear, but with an agile tongue and your lips moving, it's definitely doable.

    Exchange pleasentries with the Orc. Its in your best intrests. Biscuit has been at work for too long and wants to unwind, and you could instead set him off. Don't do that, for all our sakes.

    I'm still not over K'sellis. He was the best character in the comic and it's going to take me a lot more than this to convince me that biscuit is in the same league of awesome.

    So I looked back over the archive, and I don't think Grem is dead. I think that Dies and Fox think he's dead, but that he's not actually*. Can anyone confirm this for me?

    *Or at least that we haven't seen him dead.

    We never actually saw him die, last we saw he was merely in the lair of Mr. Fingers, a room that i will point out had a lot of pipes in it.

    My guess is that he's crawling around in one of those pipes looking for a way out right now. And Fox just thinks he's dead since he never came back to them.

    Because if there's one thing you let your enemy do while you have them surrounded and they just announced being responsible for the death of your son...it's monologue?

    I know Thunt does this a lot..but in the case especially it makes no sense. She should be enraged and ready to kill. The last thing she should do is randomly stop and listen to her enemy babble about stupid things like sunlight. It's just completely unrealistic.

    Look at where her archers are aiming. None of them would hit their target. She's just saving herself the embarrassment by not giving her dumbass troops the order to fire.

    Next comic would be a great time for Grem to emerge, unless DH is now meant to be reduced to his lonesome again.

    Some of them just look like they're aiming in the wrong direction, but that's simply due to the way they're drawn. It's difficult to depict archers facing forward without turning their bodies to face the camera their bows just look like long sticks with something pointy jutting out in the middle.

    That said, I have no idea what the hell that one Viper goblin in the upper left corner is aiming at. Maybe he thinks one of the nearby shrubberies is going to animate itself and attack?

    EDIT: Update, bitches!

    Even if that's true, I'm pretty sure this guy isn't going off a cliff unless he wants to.

    So now this Goblin Queen's plan can truly begin? Or maybe not if the legend is messed up.

    Oh wow, Duv's face in panel 2 is priceless! It's not the reaction I expected at all, she must be smarter than I gave her credit for.

    "Let all the non-goblins slaves go through the south exit." Does she by chance refer to the incident where their whole tent fell off the dang cliff? Or were there more slaves than just those?

    The orb can be used to restore lost body parts... if it can be used more then once, maybe dies can get his organic arm back, and his arm can become it's own living being.

    Nah, he just got a little light-headed. The bit where the arm then proceeded to throw the offending object away seems much more likely to lead to a disaster scenario - how do you think Duv would react if Dies - or his hand - does something to get rid of the Orb of Bloodlight?

    Working with that assumption, I was commenting that the arm would find it considerably more difficult to get rid of the Orb than the Key because it can't touch the Orb directly without taking a lot of damage.

    Klik's negative is blood, his positive is metal.

    Die's arms positive is his blood and his negative is the orb.

    The orbs negative is goblin blood, Duv is a goblin.
