I don’t get the friendly part. Ferocious perhaps?
That doesn’t spell anything!
You LOSE! Good DAY, sir!
Oh, I saw the pattern. But I couldn’t ignore the opportunity to say “bearhugs”.
“Are you threatening me!?”
“Are YOU…. tawkin ta ME??”
“They call me MISTER CARRIER OF THE MADNESS”
Almost got it, Byron, you just have to lose your pupils and start foaming at the mouth.
It’s the details that sell it.
Yep, he should always carry around a tablet or two of bromoseltzer for such an occasion.
…and a pair of Marlyn Manson’s contacts?
“I say, grrrrr.”
“Blimey, I’m livid, wot?”
MY LOVE FOR YOU IS LIKE A TRUCK!
Love is a series of tubes.
Would you like some making F&*^?
My good … um… man. If you persist in such tomfoolery and shenanigans, I very well may have to just write a strongly worded letter.
’tis my humble opinion that Harky is the most bad**s looking of all the characters. Also, is it just me or does his spearhead kinda look like a landshark?
I thought it was supposed to be “huaaarrghhh” and not “huaaaaaargh”.
No, no, your tone goes up at the first a and then down at the last a.
It’s Wingardium Levi-oooh-sa.
…Like you just had a miniscule orgasm in the middle.
I made that sound passing a kidney stone.
That’s right Byron! Use your anger!
My name… Is Mr. Furious!
His power is his boundless rage!
Byron’s challenging Harky to a dance contest!!!
Breakin’ Two: Guilded Age Bugaloo!
The Harky ‘Zerky Shake!
Now would have been a good time to be un-cured.
One would hope that Syr’nj took this possible situation into account with her quest to make the ‘zerker controllable…
Well, so far, it doesn’t look anything like Syr’nj took care of this detail … He still defeated a huge badger like wild and ferocious creature, even without ‘zerking, though.
it was “A Dire Bear”
I thought it was moderately well drawn, myself.
I’d been wondering why it was so easy for the berserking to be cured considering it was originally put forward as this huge problem that literally got them all killed. Normally big problems aren’t solved by a character simply applying their preexisting skills in a patient and thorough way.
If the reason why the cure worked is because without his berserking Byron lacks the psychotic combat oomph he needs to defeat Harky, however… there’s your conflict. Keep him cured but lose the edge, or make him a barely-tamed beast but get the killer you need when you need it.
What’s that you say? Harky’s a mutant enemy? Gotcha.
What’s that you say? Tectonicus fell down the old well? Oh no!
Awaken, awaken, awaken, awaken.
Take the blood that must be taken
Musta, krakish, Musta, Krakish…
“–Er, wait, are we talking ‘mad,’ synonym for ‘angry,’ or ‘mad’ in the British sense, synonym for ‘insane?’
“Bit of both, actually.”
“Ah! So I was on the right track, then. ARRRGH!”
Wait-wait… Americans don’t use “mad” for insane?
The most interesting Yank in the world!
I don’t use”mad” to mean insane often, but when I do it’s only because I know the term from the Mad Hatter.
Americans just call each other (bleep)ing insane and if you don’t understand what the fucking bleep means your all fucking…. I mean bleeping crazy
That does seem terribly aggressive my good sir. Would you like some nice calming Earl Grey?
Bluff check failed.
I thought Harky passed his buff check already though.
The last panel is hilarious, but Byron’s in biiig trouble. He’s dead, unless he berzerks, or help arrives.
Or he thought ahead and brought a vial of acid or something.
Or a whole passal of kids who love playing with those ugly troll things. I don’t think Harky could survive that experience.
“Let’s dye his hair pink!”
“No! It should be blue!”
“Put this tutu on him!”
“I want to brush his hair next!”
“The beard has to go! You can’t have a beard!”
“You have too much body hair to be a troll. It’s time for WAXING!”
I think we are in for the scenes where Byron discovers that he does need to be able to go berzerk to kick ass.
Or else we’re in for the scenes where Harky discovers that Byron doesn’t need to be able to go beserk to kick ass. Me and my wishful thinking is pulling for this one.
Or you are BOTH wrong and a wild Bandit appears to save the day.
Byron’s been studying the Dwarven berserker methods.
Let’s hope he didn’t get to the chapter where you’re killed before delivering a single blow.
Spit on ‘im, Byron! Spread your mad cooties!
Yeah, Harky’s terrified of Mad Byron. He is very like Captain Hammer in that regard. He got hurt once, and now he is a blubbering baby in the face of the mighty mad axe!
Well, a blubbering, regenerating, spear-wielding troll of a baby.
Harky’s got some seriously sharp eyes there. He spotted and recognized a specific human from about a hundred feet away riding one of his men’s mounts. I couldn’t tell you that “E” is on top of the eye chart without my glasses if I hadn’t seen it so many times.
Harky is Natty Bumpo.
It’s actually a Q :)
The key to voluntary berserking is “fake it till you wake it”.
Poor Byron. He shouldn’t have drawn his axes yet. Much more intimidating, when your foe knows you’re a berserker, and you act like he’s not a big enough threat to NEED to beserk. Also easier to fake, than pretending to be berserk.
I was a little bummed that our favorite Gnoll was “put down” so quickly. I was eagerly wondering what the rematch with Harky would be like. I am now wondering if we’re in for another quick fail after everything that’s happened in the past 10 chapters. Maybe it was the little bit of humor at the end that killed the buildup and drama for me.
Also, Harky? Did your spear grow a few sizes or are you just glad to see Byron?
Harky’s having a raging spear-on.
oh gog, this is just perfect.
“Hah, savage! Now you shall feel the mild vexation of Byron the Emotionaly Stable!”
My name is Byron Kickasso, you killed my girlfriends father, prepare to die.
Are you looking for an eight-fingered troll?
Byron’s gonna need a new name if that’s how he’s gonna ‘Berzerk’ from now on. Any suggestions?
Byron: Tea Bezerker?
Byron the Bland?
Basically, This is what he’s like before he berserks. So he’s Byron the pre-serker.
Byron the Beast.
He’s mad, I tell you… MAD!
So, yeah, Harky is going to be a toughie, even if it is just because of his FOTM build. It would be surprising if they hadn’t prepared to face the guy who killed them, though, so I am nervously anticipating the coming pages!
Baggy Trousers: Check
One Step Beyond: Well, one step too far, at least. Check
Embarassment: Seems like he feels awkward about something. Check
Forever Young: Seems to come back from the dead. Check
The Sun and the Rain: Both happened in this forest very recently. Check
It must be Love: Seems to be in love with that elf. Check.
“Our House” – The elves seem to think so
“House of Fun” – I’d put that with the fuzzy peoples.
This may be a draw. Call Michael Caine.
Harky is part dragoon
That’s what that is. I knew his move reminded me of something.
Panel 3 is square, but not yet an avatar?
Chapter ain’t over, yet.
I wonder also if it’s possible to turn that last panel into an avatargh?
Oh, it’s very possible.
I want to turn it into an animated gif, with the arms/elbows jiggling up and down. =)
Fake it til you make it, Byron
He’s channelling Odin.
Rapidly moving arms = Weirdo.
Heftly gripped weapons at your side, ready to charge = Berserker.
