    I join Fat Daddy in not knowing what I think. The start panel with all the Elvisses (what the heck is the plural of Elvis?) made me more raise my eyebrows and saying "huh?" than laughing. But like others said, the chatbook was quite amusing, and even more manpower, as I'm currently just working for them. Thanks to the forum I now have at least theories about the lime pie(and the reassuring feeling that I'm not the only one not to get it).

    I'm not really into the style yet, though the art is great and I definetively like the camera angles used. In any case, it was funny and interesting enough that I'll keep on reading.

    Or perhaps maybe Erfworld is extreamly small giving the illusion of a huge cloan army.

    I liked it so far but it still needs time to devolope.

    I'm betting that Jillian is the new warlord for Stanley while Ansom is the warlord of the other side. (they both have "warlord" as their class)

    I only just noticed that the different elvis titans have different colour gems on their capes. there's pink blue and can't tell the other but I'm guessing green if his ring is any indication. I wonder if there are only those three.

    Did anyone else notice that the walnut, swept of the table, made a "coo" sound?

    As for the whole axemen thing at the start, it's ment to be a take-off (wrong wording but couldn't think of another way to put it) of "all for the want of a nail".


    For want of a nail the shoe was lost.
    For want of a shoe the horse was lost.
    For want of a horse the rider was lost.
    For want of a rider the battle was lost.
    For want of a battle the kingdom was lost.
    And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.

    Here too. I like the plot, and the names are cute, but their speech kills me. And their heads are really really big, which sometimes makes everything look wrong.

    However, I do love the current plotline, and like I said the names - Dwagon, Croakamancer, Findamancer. The giant weapons work well.
    Yup.

    Looking good, I'm impressed! The artwork looks excellent, and I think it's been supporting (rather than overpowering) the story that's being told.

    eek Re: It begins! (Erfworld 1-6)

    I have to admit I don't particularly like it. Well, I don't hate it either. I just find it a bit confusing -- like I missed the first 300 pages or so. The drawings look good but the style of narrating reminds me of marvel style comics (unusual perspective, panels that seem cropped) which are definatly not on my fav list. Lastly I think the font is a little hard to read. Especially on computer screens I prefer very clear fonts.

    But I'll give it some more tries. Maybe once I find my way into the story I'll like it more.

    Lord Manpower the Temporary. that's just great. and this conversation:

    "Why do you have a parasol with a target on it?"
    "it's a peculiar story, m'lady."
    "does it involve the other henchmen?"
    "yes."
    "then save it. i have to meet with lord stanleyalso i need to be as far away as possible from you right now."
    Yeah? Well i rolled a nat 20, so you bitches can suck it!

    Question Re: It begins! (Erfworld 1-6)

    Hmm...after reading the first six installments, my reaction is, "Meh."

    Although the art is wonderful, I think the writing so far does not lend itself to single-page episodes. The reader would be better off to read several pages at a sitting. Also, the dialog seems really contrived. It's either too cutesy or too self-refererntial for its own good. The writer is trying too hard to make things up too quickly. Pace yourself!

    I'll give it a little longer, but right now it hasn't done anything to pique my interest.

    Well, I'm in a state of anticipation. This is going to be, if nothing else, yet another interesting story. It has the right spots of humor, and yes, perhaps it won't always hit a punchline, but it will give us some sort of laugh every now and then.

    In short, this comic is a thinker. You require some brains and some patience to like it.

    Unfortunetly, I don't have either of those at the moment... (damn school) yet I still like it, lol.

    I'm loving the world-consuming speech impediment. It draws a distinction that keeps me from translating Erfworld into D&D. Why do I have no problem with that fireball coming out of the wrong end of the dragon? Because it's a "dwagon".

    The pun in the last few panels is too great.

    Dwagon: Pffrt!

    I really like this, the humor is actually quite good, and strangely enough i love the art style because its something fresh and new. I also like all the custom titles instead of being normal and using 'scryer' and 'necromancer'. Here's to more Erfworld!

    Promising. It'll take a while for me to get a feel for the story, but it looks interesting enough to wait until things start to click.

    Uhm, actually the joke was originally made by a scot, Billy Connolly.. So either you've got a name wrong, or on of the billy's copied it.

    Umm, I don't think that was a fireball...

    I really liked the comic. It's different. I had to look twice at the first panel and when I realized the Titans of Ark were Elvi... well, I was hooked.

    I still saw a disconnect on the first page between the dropping of the gem and the Marbits and then the battle. Later pages explained a little better in that Stanley is questing to recover these items but it still seems a little disconnecting.

    The "key lime pie" thing I assumed was because that was the part of Manpower's brain that was stimulated by the arrow. Before he died, of course.

    The messaging system was another cool, yet unexpected, addition.

    Overall, I'll continue watching. I like the art and I like the uniqueness of the world.

    Oh, right, you're not The Giant and need some kind of feedback from the other modlike people on how this is all going.

    Thumbs up all around. Art, Story, Characters.

    Can't wait to see what happens after the part I already know about.

    I like the comic so far, but can't stand the font. I spend half the time trying to figure out if that "m" is really an M, or if it's an RN really close together.

    Other than the font, the parts that I *could* make out were great.
