Nah, the Land Sharks are really, really into Jethro Tull and that’s their monument to Ian Anderson.
Don’t discourage my hopes of a large creature giving new meaning to ‘Shit Elf’
Keep your fetishes out of this please.
Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin.
Giant hairy sand worm!
Like Bob said, please keep fetishes out of this.
Talking of hair, I like how Best and his mount have exactly the same hairstyle in the same colour. It was a 2-for-1 deal.
Speaking of his mount, is it just me or is Keirnas a chocobo? :)
They ARE landsharks. Would it be too obvious if a bunch of fins were sticking out of the sand?
My thoughts exactly. Those are breathing tubes for the landsharks taking a nap under the sand.
Ooooh. Those are breathing tubes aren’t they? Best is going to join the rest of the group in floaty-tube-land isn’t he?
OK: Best is a schmuck, but that’s a total railroad.
It looks more like a total herd, really.
If those are land shark snorkels, thats allot of land sharks.
Sorry, man. Can’t think of Best as ‘our hero’. Gigantic douche, and all that. Y’understand.
Sticks and stones may break his bones but names will never… actually having your bones broken is pretty bad.
And that are a lot of sticks to break his bones.
I’m personally trying to figure out how long it’s gonna be that Best is the hero.
I think the unsatisfying thing about this arc is that with the group there’s all the delightful interactions and banter between the characters, while this is just GD trying to act cool.
I’m patient enough to wait it out, but less than thrilled about the current storyline.
Best looks like he’s in trouble now, but I’m sure he’ll be able to stick it out.
I hope it’s not too prickly a situation.
I’m sure he’ll stick it to ‘em, the danged dirtfish.
I’m going to stick around to find out whats going to happen.
Indeed. Anyone who dislikes the comic can stick it up their ass.
I wonder what the others wood do when confronted with this stickuation.
I reckon they’d have twigged to it a lot earlier.
Crap. Someone did that one below me. My bad.
My carelessness should be punished.
Sticks and stones…
He’s in danger, but he hasn’t twigged yet.
Hope he branches out into new tactics.
If anything, we know that his bark is just as bad as his bite. He’ll be fine.
I’m sure next time we’ll come to the root of the problem.
Everyone’s stuck on the sticks – but I notice he failed his Bluff check.
Also, I think they’re breathing tubes. Or maybe giant’s party toothpicks!
I hate to be a stickler, but I believe they are javelins.
A surprisingly clever move from the landsharks. No musician likes being forced to perform out in the sticks.
ya – on’y when dey de-spear-at.
what you did: it is there and I see it
Spears from some kind of spear launcher.
that makes sense, he’s being herded to their firing rang.
Looking at the way the sticks are in the sand, I’d agree. Those look like fresh impacts to me.
That’s… a LOT of landsharks for ambushing a single dude.
Well, one landshark has this idea: I’m gonna ambush this guy! Landshark next to him says: Hey guy, I’m gonna ambush this guy! … soon… comic.
the best kind of kill is overkill, after all.
also, the more you throw at a target, the more likely you are to hit it, just on pure probability.
Must be Shark Week.
Those aren’t landsharks! They be instance barriers!
we’re gonna kill that guy up…. Come on now get it over with!!!!
Sharks rise, everyone dies?
HEY GUY I’M STAB YOU
Korean gold farmers? I knew it!
They are trying, thats how many times they missed those other dudes.
Someone set him up, the bum.
what you say!
Follow every stick — er zig….
Come on Best, I expected you to be smarter then that.
Tune in next Monday for the xkcd/Guilded Age crossover.
If GA and xkcd exist in the same world, then that explains Best’s apparent sexual magnetism: He just has to use words with multiple consecutive vowels.
well if they do indeed have a hive mind. then you can merely think of the outer sharks being like the fingers that draw him to the “mouth” of the beast. the beast being the bulk of them. its actually a scarey thought.
Hey landsharks, is that a large forest of sticks, or are you all just happy to see me?
“HEY GUY I’M STAB YOU”
Truly deserving of accolades, the rhetoric of the angry shark-man.
No no no , like this.
Oh, I stand corrected then.
All of you do realize that if what’s ahead is a bunch of sharks under the sand, then Best is pretty much obligated to just simply jump over ‘em?
Stick it to ‘im, sharkies.
that chocobo does not look happy.
Well, considering the circumstances, would you be happy? What with the sharks, and the stabs, and the sticks. And having to bear Best’s backside around the boonies…
nicely alliterative! i found myself trying to work out a tune for those phrases
The land…mines of Moria
I suspect Best prefers strip…mines.
Shall we strike a deal with “Landmines made by Landsharks”, going once, going twice…?
I dont “like” Best, but I think he’s quite capable, I would fight with him, but not party with him….too selfish for me.
Be really dang careful if they suddenly stop following, Best. You saw avians flying out of the city in formation. For that matter, ambassador-designate chickenfu-*cough* Gondolessa implied heavily that airships were a clear possibility.
How does that ‘Axe’ not fall off the back of big bird there? RPG physics… like where the f$%# did that sword come from?
It’s Best’s magnetic personality.
In all seriousness, he probably has the strap on the back tightened all the way down to just the base of the neck and the bottom of the axe. That way he can loop it around, say, his sleeping mat or a knob or something and it won’t slide around and cut his mount’s ass off.
I would agree. Also, just wanna say, the saddle in the last panel is really well drawn. First time I’ve seen a saddle on a bird-type mount that makes any kind of sense.
heh heh. His knob.
If those are breathing tubes… do they just hang out there all day? and then bring in the night shift and alternate? I mean… that’s usually the type of maneuver you only use when you’re expecting an immediate attack (kinda like if they had a trojan horse just sitting around with troops inside it waiting for the next city to ambush… you know, eventually). The only other alternative is that they somehow signaled ahead and the landsharks are just very quick burrowers.
They are land sharks, after all. I imagine they’re pretty good at burrowing, especially if they share any characteristics with the D&D land-shark (i.e. Bulette).
I wonder if this is their usual “natural” hunting tactic. Herd something towards the rest of the – pod? flock? tribe? – while the tribe is all hangin’ out under the sand…
Be funny if they did bring in a night shift, though.
How do you know they aren’t like Ratchet and Clank Land Sharks? Stupid and underground, while relatively easy to kill.
I hope his performance doesn’t end up being a bit wooden.
Man, Jusenkyo has seen better days.
I’m supporting the theory that the woodwinds are breathing tubes for a f***ton of Landsharks.
I suspect Best’s running into a situation where he’s almost guaranteed to die—such as The Gang Vs. Harky (and later, The Remainder of the Gang Vs. Byron). When it looks like he’s about to fail, he’ll be summoned away by whatever hoo-doo magical nonsense H.R. used to steal away the rest of the gang (assuming that’s the case AT ALL), and he’ll wind up in the yellow tube.
This still leaves me wondering about Bandit, though. I’m hoping she wasn’t a plant working for Hurricane, but rather is going to be the one orchestrating the Great Tube Escape.
I have the unholy urge to watch Street Sharks now. Thanks guys.
If that’s a minefield… the sharks are hellastupid and have to put obvious markers so THEY don’t step on any… wonder if Best’ll fall for it.
Yeah, I’m bringing back hella… it’s gonna be hellahuge this time. Cartman can’t ruin it this time.
If it is as you say, it’s like in Double Team!
That’s a lot of sticks, and I wonder if they’re in any kind of order…
Sadly, I think that Best has gotten the wrong end of the stick.
Never gonna kill you up, never gonna eat you down, never gonna say “Hey Guy – I stab you!”
I am so incredibly sorry. It was just THERE.
The Land sharks seem rather courteous for a savage race. Who else would be considerate enough to warn their victim of their assault?
