And since my week needs some extra levity, here’s a link to The Dead Alewives Watchtower’s sketch on Dungeons & Dragons (mp3 download).

Thor knocking Hercules (or is it Heracles?) on his arse: That little picture of Thor thundering down on Herc the Jerk has got to be the cutest, most adorable expression I’ve ever seen on Thor’s face in this comic (and yes, the pun was definitely intended there). He is easily my second favourite character (after Hod, of course).
I agree on all counts. (Especially about Hod, he’s awesome!) I never would have imagined that Thor could have such an adorable smile. Now, I’ll smile every time I think of him.
Yeah this is pretty funny, but it just doesn’t trump Baldur jumping on cheese
Herc, theivery is not about speed, it is about stealth. And most of the time, they are mutually incompatible. Taking the time to inspect the lock can result in traps NOT being sprung, and guards NOT being alerted since you are not making any noise.
Herc just cannot get a break (except bones). Bowled over by Thor, run over by Hermod dragging Baldur, and stomped on by the Iron Dragon. Then mocked by Xarenia and Arazel. Maybe he will learn that there is a reason why experts take the time they need to do the job right. But I doubt it.
Awesome! Oh yes, this one is DEFINITELY getting the vote for Backup Dad! He even made them bagged lunches to go home with… though I think he might just need a larger bag for Thor’s lunch LOL!
Maybe he packed Thor’s lunch in a brown paper bag of holding.
I’m definitely adding a brown paper bag of holding to my paladin’s wish list…
Not a post about this page specifically, but about the comic.
It’s about the Ssu Ling.
Who is what?
Hoang(that’s her name, right?) is a bird- the Vermillion Bird? Then why is Phoang the fiery one?
Or is she the Fenghuang? It’s not really a part of the Ssu Ling, but is often included among them…
It would be very helpful to know who is what.
I use both Hoang and Phuong as the combined representation of the Fenghuang based on the occasional legends of the Phoenix where it is a creature composed of two beings… sort of a physical incarnation of the yin yang. They’re basically two parts of a whole.
Aaah. Kinda felt that considering.. PhuongHoang.
Still don’t get the lightning though.
“The Vermilion Bird of the South, one of the Four Symbols (Ssu Ling) of Chinese myth, is sometimes confused with the Fenghuang, when in reality, they are two separate entities.”
The Ssu Ling is the Fenghuang, Qilin, Dragon and the Tortoise, right?
Some sources say Ssu Ling= Ssu Xiang.
Ssu Xiang is the Vermillion Bird(similar to a phoenix, with fire and so)- which isn’t a Fenghuang, the White Tiger, The Black Tortoise/Warrior(?) and the Azure Dragon.
I’m confused. @_@
As are lots of people (even myself) when it comes to the Fenghuang. There are probably a gazillion different legends about the creature(s). In some of the older legends, it was represented as a male (feng) and female (huang) phoenix together. From there, I wanted to distinguish something that could help distinguish the two and I stumbled across something (can’t remember where) that talked about the female’s feathers crackling with lightning and the male’s with fire. So, I creatively adapted from there using those two to act as the Fenghuang amongst the Ssu Ling (not the Ssu Xiang).
You forgot your lunches!
I love this dino-dragon dude. He’s great.
Also, I find that reading the comments down here is half the fun of the comic! Can’t wait till Wednesday!
Guys, I just gotta tell you again – I LOVE Seth’s art, Jeff’s writing and Anthony’s vivid colors. All around a GREAt package o’ quality! And I’ll keep saying it and you can’t stop me! Keep it up dudes. Now… to get my hands on that new book…
