Well geez, Syr. Didn’t know you cared about paper that much.
Well paper is a product made from trees, and we’ve already established that she’s a wood elf, so I guess that makes the paper in those books like a third cousin twice removed. :D
The Golems care about it, and won’t shoot Byron to save the books.
Best really would look much more pleasing with his guts made into garters…
You just say that because you haven’t taken the effort to look past his exterior and understand him for who he really is.
Everyone who really, truly knows the character hopes for something involving ants, thousands upon thousands of ravenous flesh-crazed ants.
True. After all, Best’s previous associations with garters were traumatic enough.
Best, i’m deceptioned with you now.
Now it’s Bait-zerker.
at least he isn’t a bum-zerker.
He may wind up a burnt-zerker.
Either way He’ll be a Sore-zerker in the morning after this shit…..
Scopes ignore Dodge rating, I assume? Not that Byron would’ve had much to begin with.
The point is the normal blasts are too big and well cause collateral damage to the books, but apparently the golem has a more precise weapon as well.
Maybe it’ll end up that the laser is really just a scanning device or a superhero beam that gives the person it hits SUPER POWERS or something.
Miiiight be a cheap copout compared to seeing our intrepid band of heroes rocking the golems though.
Maybe it’s for scanning the barcodes when you check out the books.
I have to say the. Look on Byron’s face is just priceless. The Best even.
Yeah, deer in the headlights.
I’ve a feeling Best’s gonna pull off something awesome in the next strip. Push Byron out of the way in the last moment or deflect the golem lazor with his axe. Payet’s all about da ambiguity
I say, Best is exactly what Byron needs to snap out of his depression…
Hey; Best didn’t get to see Byron’s berserkergang Up Close…
There a reason tanks come with both cannons and machine guns
Because dakka is more fun?
I would like this as well!
I wish I could “like” this comment.
“The Library is closed. Attention: The Library is Closed.”
“Attention: The Library is closed.”
Sheesh. its only responsible to lock the doors when you let the guard dogs out.
Klaatu, barada, nikto?
…I thought it was illegal to spotlight adventurers, oh well, Springsteen break.
Blinded by the light!
Cut loose like a deuce, another runner in the night.
That line, my friend, is one of the most misunderstood lyrics in music history. I always thought it was “shot off like a douche into the middle of the night” when I was younger. Song was catchy, but Springsteen weirded me out until I learned the truth.
Honestly I always just hummed that part, I only recently found out the real lyrics via the modern miracle that is google.
It’s not even Springsteen. It’s Manfred Mann.
Thank you Phil for correcting the young’uns, I was about to say much the same thing. Only not as nice.
However, that doesn’t make nearly as good a bad pun as Spring(steen) Break. Ah, the truth hurts when it ruins all our pun. Perhaps replace it with only the good die young? Or are we only going to let Frig into True Neutral?
Springsteen wrote it. Manfred Mann popularized it.
I stand corrected and completely blown away.
See, that’s what makes a man like Best awesome. Self preservation instinct. He’s not here to save your ass. He’s here to use it and leave it raw.
Way to live and see another day Best. And people wonder why nice guys die early.
This page is full of win. Best is a hilarious ass and that face is priceless.
Best is a donkey? C’mon, he’s a bard! His singing is at least slightly better than that.
Any conclusion yet whether that’s a real language or just gibberish? It looks French, but Babelfish came up blank…
Yeah, it’s odd. I speak French fairly well and know that it’s not anything in actual French, but the phonetic clusters are eerily Frankish. Since it’s also clearly not Franglaise, let’s just go with Catbus and agree on Frelvish.
Frelvish ? Mix of French and elvish ? Outch …
It has to be said: LESS QQ, MORE PEW PEW!!
I think the golems were designed by Shit Elves. Why? Their lasers stink. How do I know? They go P-YEW, P-YEW!
That was a stinky pun.
They’ll still reek some havoc.
Continuing action! Hooray! The art continues to be great.
There is no greater sound effect in the world than “Pyew!”
Is it just me, or do those guardians look like creepers?
So … I don’t know, glue books to yourselves and run around like mad! C’mon, Gravedust, you’re a dwarf! You’re supposed to know things about rocks!
You know, the absolute worst advice ANY time you’re dealing with a giant creature/robot/monster is “don’t move! It can’t see you if you don’t move!” (or the variant seen here, “their blasts are too big to not hit the books!”)
Actually, it was both. Bruce Springsteen wrote and recorded it first, and Manfred Mann covered it about 4 years later.
Manfred Mann’s version is the one most people remember (it was a #1 song).
I will say this as Best is pissing me off still:
That damn douche will not be poking at Byron for “botching” their mission if he was there and experienced first hand what happened to the team, the f%&king idiot…
Seems like Best needs to learn the lesson about bersekers the same way Frigg did. Don’t underestimate your opponent (or in this case quasi-ally).
Judging by the previous episode where Best dodged all those spears while fighting Land Sharks, I think he may have survived the Berserker Byron portion of the encounter in the arena. The wall of arrows, on the other hand…
maybe, save for the fact that ‘zerker Byron was still using all his tactical knoledge whilst being kill-crazed, and realisticly dodging a two weapon style requires not only agility, but a tiny body, wich best does not really have
and with all that dodginess, I can’t see him being able to take hits.
Watch this be just what Byron needs to pull him out of his funk.
DON’T TAZE ME BRO!
Ok so why did our artist decide to use 40ft tall golem/mecha to defend a library???
Would it be the artist that made that decision? I guess it could be, but that would normally come from the writers. Perhaps they will even educate us on the matter.
They aren’t only the guardians. They are tall enough to reach the highest of shelves. Practical guys, those elves…
I feel like this is a question that answers itself.
The real question is: why not use 80ft ones?
Please can Byron do something awesome now (that at least doesn’t end horribly)? Because I think I’m going to yak if he just gets kwoked in the first 5 seconds again and Best not only uses the party to serve and glorify himself (which I completely expect) but also gets away with it. I would, however, probably happily settle for Best seeing something nasty once he finds that basin. *crossing fingers*
Wouldn’t exactly be his fault this time, Best is being a douche.
Hey, Best? C’mon over here – there’s a scene from Fargo that I’d like you to be a part of….
Yeah, you weren’t my first choice, but Jar Jar was busy….
This is a lot funnier if you imagine these golems fighting other similar golems, pointing their fingers at each other and going “PEW PEW PEW! BANG! BANG BANG BANG!” The Sky Elves’ ancestors clearly had a sense humor. XD
Panel three is the best face ever.
Well, whadda you know… the designers DID think it out first!
