    Since his speech was not cut off mid-word, but at the end of the word, I don't think that counts.

    Indeed, that does not count.

    Also, lightsabers.

    Oh! Apologies, I've been away and forgotten to check in. Yes, you are all due a hint: The sentence is cut off due to the death of the character speaking it.

    Despite the fact that their sentence is cut off mid-word due to their own death, that sentence is not this character's final line in the comic.

    The second one doesn't count, as his rapier isn't on-screen there.

    Hint: The second one's loss takes place during the current story arc.

    In the first place, he lost his sword, and everything else, when Nale changed places with him and took all his stuff.

    In the second place, he clearly has a sword, and loses it, in panel 2.

    The sword, yes. The rapier, which was asked for, no.

    Though first point is a valid one, it looks like.

    rgrekejin is close enough, though I was originally referring to #714.

    In hindsight, I probably should have added a note that my question didn't nessecarily require the rapier's destruction, and that it had to be on-panel.

    Also, he didn't really lose his rapier in 714, as he had it again for the duel with Tarquin (it IS still the one Julio Scoundrel gave him, right?)

    Man, I feel like my only contributions to this thread are problems in the answers.

    How closely "like" is "Gollum-like"? It's not exact, but "Thog hate you, stupid metal bars" is pretty similar to "Smeagol hate nasty elf bread"... Name-in-third-person, expression of hate, negative adjective, descriptive adjective, object starting with 'b'...

    It might fall under the "answers the question well enough to count" category, but I'm guessing it wasn't what you're going for. OQ if you want to accept it.

    I would consider Thog's speech patterns more "Hulk-like". The instance I'm looking for butchers a plural noun in what is a very uniquely Gollum-like fashion.

    I believe word of Giant has it that the rapier Elan used in his duel against Tarquin was not the same one he used against Gannji and Enor.
