    OK, problem solved. You should be able to see the comic now (refresh the page if you can't).

    Heh, pretty nice comic, though I wonder why Haley can't see Roy. Maybe there is some genetic connection needed, or something like true ownership of the sword?

    lol, nice one. Guess he still has to learn to "manifest"... But he's not a real ghost in strict DnD terms, is he?

    I feel sorry for Roy... If he doesn't work this out before going back up, Eugene will never let him live it down.

    Hey, look - a new comic while I was actually on the site!


    This actually reminds me of a terrible movie I watched last night, called The Invisible. This, of course, was much better.

    Apparently It takes a little more than just showing up to manifest the way Eugene did. You just know Dad is laughing hard up there.

    Aww, Haley talks to Roy's body. That's cute. However I still do hope that Roy quickly figures out a way to make her able to see him.
    Great comic. :D

    You had me going there for a second. It was kind of sweet to see Haley airing her troubles to Roy, even if it's not quite how I (or he) expected.

    I wonder if Belkar will be able to 'see' him. Maybe via scent. Or will Roy hang in the background and comment? Hmm...

    But it's all right. I actually really really like Roy's speech. so Kudos to Giant

    I had no idea Haley was taking her new position so seriously, or realized how precarious their position was. Yay for character development! Her assessment of Xykon's overall lack of vulnerability is making me nervous, though. Has he really gotten that much stronger and more powerful while Roy was away?

    Found a small typo. In the fourth panel, I'm pretty sure Haley meant to say "rescue".

    Perhaps I'm wrong, but doesn't the subject have to be asleep to see the Greenhilt ghost? Or do you actually have to be a Greenhilt for that to work?

    I'm sensing some horrible "Ghost" parodies as Roy manipulates his environment to communicate with his friends.....

    I hope not, but still, it's a possibility.

    Haley talks to a rotten corpse .. kind of creepy. But I guess you get used to it when you have that thing around for months

    Doesn't he have to wait till Haley eats some of Bekar's cooking, or otherwise is open to halucination? If he can't monkey with reality at all (and who would expect him to be able to), this might take until the plot requires it.

    One wonders whether Roy simply hasn't manifested yet or there's another problem entirely; if Burlew is in keeping with the D&D cosmology here, the Ethereal Plane would look noticeably different from the Material Plane and thus Roy would not be on it at this point (He has been so far, the Upper Planes and Lower Planes have both shown to be present). However, if Roy is an actual ghost, he would probably end up on the Ethereal Plane by default.

    In other words, I have no idea what's going on.

    Great Comic. I love Roy. I never realized before how funny Roy was, but with him gone everyone else has seemed so much less funny. Even Belkar. I didn't know it was possible for Belkar to be less funny!

    Nice touch to see Haley keeping Roy's corpse in the loop. Really shows he's missed.

    If I remember my D&D cosmology correctly, the Ethereal plane only borders the prime material plane and other inner planes, whereas the outer planes are connected to the prime material only by the astral plane, so that would seem to imply that Roy is actually an astral creature at the moment.
