#523 - Kids or Superheroes?
For all that Ayne is supposed to be the more grounded one, she certainly has a blind spot a mile wide sometimes, doesn't she?
Can't argue with that logic
What ever happened to Ayne's leg? I recall her arm getting slashed but I don't remember her leg getting hurt...
Myrhad looks really good on this page and his Panel 1 comment is hilarious !
I wonder why there wasn't any "KRA-KA-TOWW"s at the beginning of the chapter. Maybe because his name is engraved in stone and not said. I think there should be a "KRA-KA-TOWWwwww" also engraved in the front page of the chapter.
adn ayane is getting bluer still :)
It's true though, at least he doesn't eat children. Even evil has some standards.
Can the staff change shape? I remember there was a sort of rose-thorn hook above the rings at the top, near the gem
I think Ayne's leg was wounded on the same page that her arm was and there is a balloon streached over the top of the staff hiding it.
The child said the lighning only comes when the magister is close by.
Apperently he wasn't when they passed the bridge.
And I wouldn't be surprised if the child is Malvenicus (Kra-ka-towwww) who changed his appearance (and/or shape) to "scout out" the one who has his magestaff.
Leaf: Let's give the staff back. Ayne: No! This is probably an evil, dangerous man. Leaf: Then let's track him down and defeat him. Ayne: Okay!
Ayne seems very happy with the new plan. And I don't think anyone should be judged on the way the sky portents doom eternal at the mere mention of their name. That's just not fair. :)
He can't be Himself, because he said he *learned FROM* the Magister, which would make him a liar. The kid doesn't seem like the lying type. And you'll note that they successfully avoided actually saying the Magister's name during all six panels, probably so as to not give away their position any more than they already had.
Great comic. But, by the by, it should be "the way the sky portends", not "portents", for the verb form. :)
I still think there's something odd about the kid. He's too calm, for one. If I were that age and I knew a word that would make it thunder on cue, I would say it as often as I could. I hope he's not a ghost or a spirit.
Chariset: He probably said it so often already in last ... month ? .. he's bored by it now.
Lylia: I second that. Or rather: what eternal doom ? I think it's just cool efect ...
"He can't be Himself, because he said he *learned FROM* the Magister, which would make him a liar. The kid doesn't seem like the lying type."
Which is pretty much the point of any disguise, to appear honest, while "wearing" a lie.
Dark Dragon says:
And the kid just watches calmly while three crazy strangers plot to overthrow his government... Will Myrhad be breathing more fire in this chapter?
ahaha, oh Ayne :D Panel 3 is fantastic and has made a great start to the day, cheers! :)
I don't think the Magister is the local government. I know magocracy is a legitimate form of government, but Magister isn't necessarily a governmental title. Remember, it means teacher in Latin. It's possible he was previously a teacher at a magical university and then decided to leave. Department politics, extended sabbatical, forced retirement, who knows?
Maybe the Magister (Kra-ka-toww!) only eats adults. Children because they run around so much are all stringy, adults because they don't run around so much and like to lay back are not so stringy. Simple law of nature. :P
I like Leaf's logic, it is flawed yet intreaguing.
Nebra: Actually, Magister is academic degree used in various systems of higher education in Europe. I'm magister too.
hkmaly: Ah, well I'm just a stupid American, so I didn't know that...
I really love this one. The facial expressions are great, and the lighting effects are neat too.
Nebra/hkmaly: I don't know, His Dark Materials has the Magisterium, doesn't it? Magister implies magic, but Philip Pullman writes the Magisterium as a center of religion. Still, given the staff, Malvenicus (kra-ka-toww) doesn't seem very religious.
That's such Tabletop RPG logic right there:
"An evil, dangerous, and powerful wizard? Lets save the world from him!"
