I love the girl flipping off Best
Now THAT is shooting daggers with your eyes! The back of Byron’s head should take 1d4+Str damage.
Love the kid flipping Best the bird in panel 1.
I like the little girl flipping off Payet in panel 1. Also, Failboat. Also, “We have a permit.” This page is made of win.
ahh, finally – Best gets put in his place.
Hehe, the girl flipping Best off is great.
Way to interrupt an interrogation, Payet. He’s not a witness – he’s a perpe”traitor”!
“We have a permit.” Heh, the things legal documentation will get you out of.
Oh man, I play a character like Best in a VtM game. He gets a lot of hatin’ from his teammates. A lot of hatin’.
I can’t decide who I like more now. Everyone is made of so much WIN. Especially Phil and Erica for the writing and the art.
Ooooooh, burn by ignorance. Like leaving the clothes too close to the heater and leaving the house while you sleep in the next room.
And that’s why we haven’t seen Payet in the flashforwards.
If looks could kill…(Though in some instances, they probably could.)
You ever wonder if Gorgon’s having a saying about “If looks couldn’t kill”?
Yep, the stage is definitely set for an Evil-Worst returns moment.
I don’t think the girl is flipping anyone off. It looks more like she’s pointing to the sky, crying, trying to describe the feeling of being thrown face-first over the side of an arrghship.
Best line ebar in this comic so far…”We have a permit…” A permit to…what? Do whatever it takes, no matter how bizzare, to save the kids???
I hate to disagree, but clearly that is a one finger salute given to the bard. Add the angry little frown and the image is clear – kids don’t like Payet. And frankly other than my personal enjoyment of watching Payet toss the children over the side – I really don’t like him either – he comes across really too much of a douche.
But I agree, the stage is set for Payet’s evil/dark return – maybe there is something about Destiny when it comes to Payet’s story line. Destroyer of villages maybe… I really like the pace of the story, and the presentation.
The permit’s for the ownership of the boat, which Frigg has, as always, described perfectly accurately.
And this is definitely lending some credence to my theory that Payet will come back as the evil former teammate.
I think Payet is going to go dual-class to berserker in the next page from the look on his face … kick his ass Byron!
Alright! Set-up for a villain.
Am I the only one who has liked Best from the beginning? I think I am.
No. No you are not.
Really, kick Best out? But you have to have him in to offset the rest of the team. Keeps things lively yet balanced.
Oooh, that poisonous stare. So uncharacteristic and creepy.
Eh, I’m guessing that’s why Bandit joins later.
And I too, like “We have a permit.”
Ship Fail. :-P
Do it, Byron! Kill him!
Who is that to the right of Frigg on the first panel? It looks like Best.
But Byron is talking to Best who is behind the boy captain.
Or did Best move supernaturally fast to behind the boy captain?
Byron was asking captain kid what he was planning to do, and Best zipped over to interrupt.
Well.. It’s not Best’s brutal death at the hands of clockwork baboons, but I’ll take it!
well at least bryon won’t have to break his oath to kill best, shit elf that he is
Best isn’t a human. Bryon’s oath applies to his own kind.
Yes, and if you were to reread it you’d see that is EXACTLY what he was saying. But I can see where you might’ve been confused, allow me to rewrite Bob’s sentence for better understanding.
“Well, at least Bryon wouldn’t have to break his oath to kill Payet Best, being that Payet is a Shit Elf, and not of Bryon’s race.”
You guys manage to make a single page which encapsulates enough small-scale enjoyment and a large-scale dramatic conflict that the audience is enraptured. Bravo.
Good bye fail-bard. One moment of bad assness does not make up for a story-line FULL of asshatness
I love Byron far too much. You tell’m! I suspect that Best is a villain here on out. Or dead.
I mean.. there has to be a reason he’s in the beginning of the story right? More than just making us annoyed at his bag full of narcissism.
Plus, I love the fact that this box has spell check. It’s a dyslexic girl’s best friend (sorta).
I love it. Competence can only excuse so much attitude, and his attitude is practically guaranteed to generate more problems than his competence solves.
I especially love the Bandit look-a-like giving Best the finger.
And THAT RIGHT THAR is something that pisses off an egomonster more than anything else. You do something to make yourself look awesome and the other guy comes in and pwns you with the morality hammer. There’s only one thing a guy like that can resort to when his ego gets bruised instead of fed (like he was probably expecting):
Something stupid (and probably funny).
With respect: that looked a lot more like the “Professionalism Hammer” than the “Morality Hammer”. Byron’s dressing him down for not serving the client and for endangering the whole group’s payoff, not for being a nasty person.
You’re both right. There’s the “serving the client” bit about professionalism, yes, but the “weight on their fragile bodies” suggests a condemnation of Best’s lack of ethics.
And really, that’s more like the “Professionalism Axe”.
Well, now we see the exact point where Best becomes a Sith.
Just laughed a lot reading this and remembering the third panel on this page:
“To be honest, all you need to use is, at BEST, a big heavy object. I stick to the axes because it’s my style, but i was halfway tempted to just find a big piece of tree.”
Great comic, adds a lot with the foreshadow of the chapter cover. You guys had me going on the another direction.
But i still like Best more.
“We have a permit.” OH MAN THAT IS AWSOME!!! I can’t stop laughing!! I have to remember that next time something goes crazy wrong haha.
P.S. FAILBOAT …. just awsome really!
And being Gravy, he can pull it off with the perfect deadpan.
I like how the little girl is flipping Best off.
Oh man — Best is going to become a guitar-playing supervillain. He might actually become cool after all. And then he and Byron will have an epic axe-fight. Woot!
Also, I hope that Best’s costumes become even more elaborate to suit his evil rockstar image. Did they have spandex back then?
Maybe he’ll go goth. :P
You’re not seriously considering constructing a timezone based on earth’s in a place that has /flying pirates/?
New web comic idea!! MINE!!!…. ok share a little….
Wow, sky pirates. That’s never been done before. Cough.
While we’re commenting on things we like, I like that Frigg is actually pointing *at* the boat, as if people might have been confused otherwise…
I got the sense that she was scolding it like a dog.
“Bad boat! Very bad boat! This was a new carpet!”
I met one of you at C2E2 and had a quick, fun conversation. I told you I would be back to talk to you again and I felt really bad that I didn’t. We were exhausted by the end of the day and just left without a hoorah. I felt bad on the drive back that I didn’t get to come back and say good luck. Hope the weekend was a success!
Ah yes, I remember you. Thanks for stopping by!
Love it. Someday I’ll have a failboat of my own . . .
