    That also turns Ara to a mean archmagi.
    He knew them for some time (enough time for them to instantly recognize his cloak), probably knew they want to go back home but never mentioned they can just return if they click their heels?

    And yes, EVERYONE is involved.
    Expect to see the waitress from Snowsong save the day by offering the king a pecan pie.

    On a positive note, the chances that the story will end with punchy are better.
    Celesto was beaten by Dominic and then finished with a guitar to his head, no reason it won't happen again with the king.

    Wow, he's even bringing those guys back.


    And I guess the Eld are massive idiots that can't get anything done unless a Mookinsertion tells them how to. Big surprise, I know.



    Also, Katya's claim to being able to help here is that she hears things that happen far away sometimes. But I guess Dominic trained her really well in those 5 minutes between him finding out that she's clairaudient and him surrendering because of zombies out of nowhere.
    Better than students he taught for a whole semester, even.



    EDIT: This is so amazingly stupid, I'm really tempted to change the thread title to "GOOD THINKING, NIMMEL.".

    Why?
    So he can tell Katya that history and knowledge is important even when it isn't?
    So he can mentally torture her to teach something?

    She's better off without him.

    What Nimmel really meant:

    "Seriously? Since when can the Eld not return to the Prime? Did Mookie--I mean, the Eld--just forget about Klo Tark mucking around in here like it was nothing back in 'Storm of Souls'? Am I going to have to go back into that hellhole of a plane and explicitly tell them that they can come home now? ...I am, aren't I? *sigh* Oh, well, as long as it gets this comic over with sooner. Maybe I can rope in some secondary characters to help, so we can meet our "big climactic everyone helps" quota."

    Okay, their is a lot of dumb things about this update. From the Eld being colossal idiots, to Mookie bringing back absolutely everyone that no one cares about.

    But I think the one thing that catches my eye over all of that, is one thing in the cast of students.

    If we're talking about Klo Tark who recently turned out to be just a visiting exiled alien, how did he resurrect himself several times?

    I suspect the answer is pretty obvious. Klo Tark was actually the Eld's special ops division. Each time one died, they sent a new one to the field who pretended he was the old Klo. Of course the Eld couldn't admit this to what's his name. After all the Klo Tarks were special ops.

    Unfortunately his plan is going to fail. You need special ops training to survive in Domi's plane ("You have to breath through your mask!")

    Wait, since when does Katya have "second sight"? I thought it was kind of a thing that she doesn't have clairvoyance, just clairaudience. Did Mookie forget already? . . . He asked rhetorically.

    Yeah. That was just worded terribly.

    Telling them that some random dude managed to not be trapped with them is completely meaningless when you don't even know why said random dude wasn't trapped.

    It's incredibly stupid. It'd be like locking me in a room, telling me that someone else was able to get out of the room, and expecting such information to magically grant me master lockpicking abilities.

    In Luna's defense, when your plan is this scattershot, anything is worth a try. Here's the plan, thus far, in its entirety:
    1) Show up at the sanctum.
    2) ???
    3) Bangarang.
    So adding the steps
    1a) Contact race that can't return to the Dominion prime, and has been away from Dominion prime long enough to have no stake whatsoever in the conflict. Let the historically imperialistic, militaristic, apparently technically superior group know that the armies of Dominion prime need them because they can't do it themselves.
    1b) Nothing goes wrong, ever.
    sure, whatever. By all means, contact THE ELD and reminds them that Klo Tark infiltrated this plane long before any of them, something you completely forgot to do last time (or maybe you just couldn't do because they wouldn't stop expositing?) While you're at it, contact the jerk Semashi dancers to try to insult the king into a dance-off that he'll lose because he is blind (the king is blind).

    Well, it's not that surprising.

    This seems like a good time to remind everyone that she's based on one of Mookie's friends, whose name is also Tara.
    And that this friend is Tubdead girl.

    Speaking of the happy bunch of students, after seeing the past link provided by the news post, I think it's considerate of them to stand almost exactly in the same pose as they did before, so no one will be confused about who they are, even if they all look like Rachel and Greg.
    The woman on the left even searched for the exact same book she was holding back then, so we'll know it was her.

    Wow, from a technical standpoint there's hardly any difference between now and five years ago. Mookie's line quality is still the same, his anatomy is still bad, composition remains stilted and boring. The only real difference I can spot is that his characters look even younger! Stoned gassy toddler indeed.

    I mean, I get it Mookie can't draw. So you end up with Greg/Dad Deegan/This Guy looking like clones. But if they are going to look the same. At least differentiate them in the dialogue for heaven sakes. You can literally swap Dad Deegan or Greg in for this guy and the effect is exactly the same.

    Does he get confused, he wants to tell us this is "awesome" and he just looks for the guy who looks like Greg?

    Ahahahaha, we're back to mindbreak this late in the story. Dominic is so scene-stealingly awesome, he's managed to outseat the King and Snuggly as the most dangerous threat. These jokers are treating going up against the king like they're the Famous Five off for a smashing adventure at Smuggler's Cove - no, the real threat is Dominic. This is going to be awesome indeed.

    Now mindbreak is back I wonder if Mookie will ever try to handwave all the crap Dominic put Celesto through. I'm thinking "no".

    What an excellent balance of tragedy and comedy. Truly, Mookie is a master.

    Even the characters themselves don't care. Dave is your king, goatee Greg.

    Calling it that Mindbreak will allow everyone to see the Face of God or Dominic will use it to See the Truth everyone in the world.

    This comic could only be made better with the addition of Rufio started trash talking King DJ.

    As for today's comic, I thought MINDBREAK was supposed to be some nuclear event with death and destruction all around. They kind of dismiss it as some psychic resonance or something. Can't Mookie even keep his plot important ailments straight?

    Edit: Fun fact. The character Rufio from the 1991 movie "Hook" was acted by Dante Basco, the same man who voice acted Prince Zuko in "Avatar: The Last Airbender". Kind of makes me feel old.

    Within text, they're consistent. Within art, it's unclear.

    Also wow first panel kid, you're surprisingly bloodthirsty. We're talking about treason here. There's going to be a fight, and a lot of people are going to die, if this happens like you've described it. That's going to happen. And your reaction is "that's awesome."

    Pfft, with this "plan" the only people in danger of death are the good guys and the king. The cattleblasters are all faceless mooks, who also happen to be twisted abominations and thus not even human. Also, i would just like to say that its nice to see the return of the horrible "pun"chline.

    Wait. I thought EVERYONE thought Prento was annoyingly retarded for thinking mind break was a real thing? That they kept insisting he was a deluded fool and mind break was just some stupid myth?

    He even says in this comic that he was wrong for thinking Dominic was going to have it . . . So apparently Dominic never told anyone what he saw would have happened if he didn't get that vacation.

    So why is everyone else acting like mind break is totally a thing to watch out for now?

    I think the problem wasnt that noone believed mindbreak was real, they just felt that dom wasnt going to suffer from it. Its like claiming I will come down with lupis. Yeah, lupis is a real disease, but my odds of contracting it are insanely low. (I assume, im not even sure what it is. lol)

    "Contacting an ancient race of planar nomads to bring down a corrupt king. This is going to be awesome."

    Mookie, you are truly a master of building suspense. The next few panels put the icing on the cake, though. Nimmel is shocked, shocked, to find that Prento is somewhat worried about upcoming treason and warfare. And then Prento says that he's actually worried about something else.

    How do they know Dominic is being tortured?

    Sure, the king is evil, but he also has a plan that required Dominic who gave himself up to save his friends. There is no reason to believe the king needs to torture Dominic, they don't even know what he wants from him!

    They start by raising the possibility Dominic is tortured, but they seem to leave the"if" part very quickly, and base entire theories and plans on the question "how long until a mind break", and even assume that this specific reason was the cause of the destruction of an entire race.

    It is as if they somehow read the comic...
