“We should start calling you Gravedust Secretkeeper!”
Looks like he’ll be carrying his secrets to the grave…
And that choice was … THE CHA-CHA!
Then later when I flunked dance academy I settled for mystic.
Young Gravedust looks like Old Gravedust, but younger. … I mean, he IS his younger self but I think the artist did a good job with that.
it also looks as though an older mystic of similar style as Gravedust is lying face down in the dirt beside him.
Gravy is a time traveler who dies saving his younger self!
“You’ll have to live on…for both of us…”
“Dammit, dead again. You’ve got a sturdy frame, kid. I’ll be borrowing it for sixty years or so.”
Actually I find that young GD looks remarkably like Byron.
Not sure why but I’m reminded of Starwars in that panel.
Due to server glitches, it’s actually the same canon. Bandit is R2D2.
Oh gods… E-Merl is C3PO…
Best is Han Solo.
Han Solo is Best
You sayin’ he’s a scoundrel?
so Scipo is Chewbacca. Gravedust is Obi-Wan
This entire comic is a hack job. >:(
We are waiting for the Fri’Nj Leia scene…
Seriously, Bandit. Abusing quotation marks is not going to get any more “information” out of Gravy.
However, smiling like that and sitting on his lap might.
I was just thinking I don’t trust that smile any more than I can throw it.
What on earth was GD’s name back then? He wasn’t yet a mystic, so no dealing with the dead – no Gravedust. He’s shown with an edged weapon – not even a miniature version of the ancestral beater. I’m also not clear if the Savasi had already been pushed into living in a timeshare with tarantulas and tumbleweeds. It just seems to me that if his parents named him Gravedust prior to the BotBH, they had a terribly morbid society.
[checks bait] Huh, must be old; Not getting any bites.
like any dwarf worth his beard, he was named Urist until he found his path in life
That was the day I made the choice. I joined the winning side. It was a mystical experience.
It worked for Flavius Josephus. He, too, had lots of time for writing as a result.
Bandit needs to be spanked. Period. That little … umm … little … erm … gnomish … girl.
Aw come on Bandit. We all know that peer pressure and poking will make you reveal your secret backstory. Well, half of it, anyway.
No, just NO! Bandit has a point, if she wasn’t such a blabbity-blab about all things gnomey, Syringe would have jabbed her with so many truth serums Bandit could have been used as a colendar, none of this “…just as you have” rubbish
Look. This is the right place to stop. We don’t wanna know about Gravedust’s gravelusts.
Yes, we do. Oh yes.
Ya know, it took me awhile, but on my second read through I realized that beardless gravedust is crying
Well he is in a pretty sad state.
Wait. Don’t tell me. Missouri? No. No. Utah! The background confirms that Young GraveDust is in the miserable state of Utah.
Badlands, South Dakota.
It is the Battle of Wounded Knee
Or Massacre at Wounded Knee…. poignant, this scene is.
Massacre is more accurate, but not official enough. Heavens forbid that any of the United States Armed Forces be associated with carrying out a massacre.
by the american media, or foreign media?
Gravedust is always crying, but his beard is super absorbant.
No sweat–when I got to that panel, my first thought was that he had lipstick on his cheek.
Hmm, I’m reminded of the closing lines of my poem on the “battle of Elm’s Deep,” as coldelectrons put it. Future generations being compared to the heroes that faced the crucible of a battle that would do more than mark a turning point in history, but redefine an entire culture.
I wonder if I can coddle/cudgel the cranium back into epic poetry mode again…
*smiles like Bandit in final panel*
But to make the story short, Gravedust is a badass.
Bandit’s smile. nuff said.
Bandit: “Privacy…right. Um. Is this diary yours? I, uh, think you dropped itohcogssorrybye…”
“The fiercest warrior in that battle was a farmer-turned-fighter, Planter Fasciitis, after whom the battle was named.”
I C WAT U DID DERE!
D’awww, look at him, all little and covered in the blood of everyone he’s ever known. So precious!
Can anyone enlighten whether those dwarves not in armor are mystics?
I think they’re optimists.
