Interesting, I like where this is going.
How dare you corrupt the great institution of desouling by comparing it to marriage?!
Yeah, marriage is MUCH worse.
Yes, imagine that you have to actually be loyal and selfless daily, concerning yourself with the well-being and happiness of a woman who loves you. THE HORROR
The problem isn’t the rare loving marriage, its the cultural indoctrination (in the western world) of so many women to believing a man is nothing but a disposable tool to exploit by pretending to love them just long enough to get a ring (because of how much divorce laws favor women in the western world).
Well said that man!
I don’t think Graham has a soul, so he should be all right…
What’s the point of this? Chydossa and company already spent a lot of time and effort getting Graham into that school. Why kill him now?
Good point! I could be that a decade from now it will be the snarling beast who emerges a hollow shell of its old self — and Graham will be fine.
I agree. They JUST created him and now they want to destroy him? Logic says no.
Because we have learnt from the course of the comic that wizards are defined by a strong sense of logic in this world…
The bad guy is, at the very least.
As long as Graham is alive, no new Chosen One will appear. So they’re free to imprison him, torture him, whatever. So long as they don’t actually kill him.
I do wonder why she strayed from the original plan, but perhaps she felt the insult had to be punished.
Only problem is, they ALREADY killed the real Chosen One, back when he was a boy, and then set Graham up as a fake replacement. So by all rights, another Chosen One could appear…
But on the other hand, as long as Graham is alive and the forces of good still think he is the Chosen One, the real one(s) will be undefended. Why look for something you think you already have?
I figure they’re just putting on a show for the others.
Nah, they made Graham into the Chosen One because you can apparently do that.
Good point, but perhaps they used some sort of a ritual to transfer the “Chosenness” to Graham. If I recall correctly, they took the kids’ corpses with them. Uhhh… Perhaps there’s a time period before a new kid is “chosen” in which they transferred the magic and sort of tricked the system.
That was the whole point of dragging him over near the kid’s body before doing that spell to make the tattoo all sparkly – they transferred the Chosen One status to him. A clever plan, actually. As long as Graham lives, the Chosen One is a lazy selfish prick.
who said anything about killing shes just trying to break him.
Random Guy: Awesome response!
Chariset: It’s all a show, most likely. Remember, the point is to sell the fake to the buyer. Make them swallow hook, line and sinker.
Though her open admission that she gave him power (in front of the others) has me wondering about that hypothesis. We’ll just have to see.
Oh Wazat good call! Make Graham seem like a hero by letting him escape here with his friends. Well played sorceress….
Marriage joke… *groan*
Let’s see, a decade in a dark hole with a monster or listening to Celeste and Goatsie talk. The hole sounds pretty good.
Why are the hot ones always psycho??!?
Sane, attractive, intelligent: pick two.
(I keed, I keed.)
I pick sane and intellegent.
nothing a little oll plastic surgery can’t fix.
….. [I kidd as well]
Because they can be.
How do we know it’s not: “Why are the psycho ones always hot?”
I don’t think there is greater horror than marriage…
*ducking for cover*
Hmm, methinks..it is twinkle-bitches upgrade time!
Desouling? Bummer. As much as Graham may have been anticipating having his…inner essence…sucked out, he probably didn’t count on this method.
I think DanMan’s idea would be a nice turnabout…But in the interests of keeping the plot rolling, I’d give Graham & the “snarling beast” about 10 seconds to get back out of the hole in the condition DanMan described.
As desouling techniques go, this one beats Dementors, hands down.
Why is the battery thingie so close to Graham. I see the possibility of major explosion
You know, of the magic sort
How can you be condemned to darkness when you have a starry nite-lite stuck on your face?
It was mis-spelled, CW. He’s really being condemned to dorkness.
he was already condemned to that as soon as she had the stars tattooed onto his face
Okay, I just discovered your comic today and force-marched myself to the current bleeding edge. Good one! I’m even going to give you my once daily vote. Might even do it another day. Cause you’re that awesome!
– a fan.
1 Magical generator
1 Psycho chick
1 Caged beast
1 Bottomless pit
4 Innocent bystanders
I’m not a chaos chef, but somehow I’m looking at that mix, and thinking that this is going to end up very badly… for the two rednecks. They’re being used as pawns, and nothing ever ends well for the pawns.
Sometimes pawns become queens or knights.
Somehow the thought of these two pawns becoming queens does not fill me with joy…
And then their troubles REALLY begin!
Okay, this has got to be some kind of crazy test . . .
Hmmm… I think her plan kind of runs at odds with our original villain’s plan of replacing the “Chosen One” with one of his own choosing. It’s less than useful if the one he’s chosen for the express purpose of screwing up the good guys’ plans is in some pit somewhere suffering a fate worse than marriage and can’t actually screw up any of their plans.
Well…the Galliflox is some kind of magic battery, right?
So maybe this is part of a cunning plan to supercharge Graham (out of sight of the others) with magic to cement the whole “Chosen One” mythos.
Anyone notice that the redneck guy on the left in the first panel has 4 chins?
Oh and that the other one looks like a fat prosecutot Payne from Phoenix Wright?
I’m likin’ Graham more and more as this Idiocy goes on……
[Marriage Jokes notwithstanding]
#1 Rule to live by:
do not stand near a pit of despair when there is an untied goat in the room. Especially one that’s just had his ears pulled.
Issue 2, Page 6
Graham: the goat has excellent ass-kicking skills.
Goat: That’s what Familiars are for!
The goat WAS assigned to Graham, so that is its primary directive.
I agree! We have one very unhappy magical goat who’s not tied up, and a number of people who are standing on the edge of the Pit of Despair. It’s inevitable. “Goatus Transformatus – Power of Mountain Goat!” Yeah!
Yeah–Those goats are always ones for Butting-In!
methinks the rednecks will get butted in… to the pit
One good thing about coming back after two weeks: nice back log of comics to read.
I honestly have no idea what the line of thinking is in this, but can’t wait to see the end result.
(raises hand) ooo! oooo! Is that the snarling beast on his left and the golden galdilocks whatever thing on his right?
