    Handbook of Heroes #385: Unsurprising

    Sometimes, it's less fun experiencing a surprise twist than crafting one. Dramatic irony is good for you!

    Have some sympathy for Wizard. It's not easy being a serious-face RP type in the company of murderhobos.

    I guess that steak's seasoned with garlic.

    Also, I could almost pity Summoner.
    If he didn't more than deserve it.
    So I'm gonna cheer the ladys on instead.
    I would recommend gagging him though...

    Like an under-leveled wizard in a solo-adventure, dude needs to pick his battles.

    Also like an under-leveled wizard in a solo-adventure, it amuses me no end imagining the carnage.

    I'm with Magus on this one.
    Dead or Alive is the default assumption with Wanted posters*.
    If dead isn't a option you have to specify so beforehand.
    Besides, it's the hedgehog's fault for fighting back.
    Had it come with Magus peacefully everything would be fine.

    *And what else is a lost pet flyer if not a Wanted poster?

    I feel like this isn't the first time the Witch has needed to get a new familar, even if she didn't kill them herself. She probably doesn't live the safest of lifestyles, and a few do-gooders probably know to attack a witch's familiar, no matter how cute.

    But yes, it does look a wee bit smaller, but that could just be the art style. Unless you are referring THAT comic, and I have completely missed the joke again.

    Handbook of Heroes #400: Unholy Heals

    There's some debate between the writing team and the art team over the correct number on this comic. The website says it #400, the art files say it's #401. In either case, that's a ****load of comics.

    We suggest you celebrate by coming on down to the Temple of the Goodly Gods. Bring your coupon for one free healz! (Expires 4/24/1998.)

    Meh, why bother with healing when you can... encourage* some NPCs to fix your buddies?

    *Pay them, speechify about the importance of your quest, blackmail, threaten them and their loved ones, do the same with innocents, start going through with those threats, sing...
    Even befriending them is a option.
    Whatever it takes to get those idiots you're stuck with nursed back to health.

    Is that the preferred order of operations? :P

    If the number of dismembered would-be heroes is directly proportional to the amount of treasure in a monster lair, whatever is in that cave should easily pay for his resurrection anyway.

    Probably.
    The list is arranged in ascending order of vileness though.

    Interestingly, Wizard does know the flesh to stone spell.

    I asked for a "big scary monster" in the script. I suspect that "whatever is in that cave" is a PokéStop. *grumble grumble*

    If you got something that keeps the icky things away you stick as close as possible to it.

    And yes, paladins count as something.
    They're basically robots anyway.
