Nicely done! The cut off panels hinting at the situations (A ring of confli...) work quite nicely by the way. Subtlety is the key sometimes

#2 LayneRobinson Fri, 13 Nov 2009 13:34:26
I was seriously expecting some sort of newt joke at the end of that........I feel let down.

#3 Thvor Fri, 13 Nov 2009 13:40:53
Some minor quibbles:
Panel 3: The plane of fire is above the plane of air.
Panel 6: How'd he get in?
Panel 14: "an he..."? Shouldn't that be "a hex..."?

Other than that, fairly well done. :-)

#4 Slandor Fri, 13 Nov 2009 13:42:33
I guess "You may say I'm a dreamer" could have been a sleep trap, but it's still more than E for the first twelve panels.

#5 Orl Fri, 13 Nov 2009 16:35:28
Panel 3: so above us there's not only sky :-)

#6 NorthBus Fri, 13 Nov 2009 17:11:21
Excellent!

...I don't exactly get the last four panels, aside from the obvious GWTWOD... could someone give me a hand?

But excellent, regardless. I particularly liked panels 6-8. :-)

ok, so, #12 "sharing all the world". There is a wand on the ground, and two 'monsters' that want it... so they are not "sharing all the world"; and since the gnome got it first, he will use it, and unfortunately it was a WoD. This song speaks of peace and love while gnomes play with death rays...

"A brotherhood of MAN" to rhyme with "I wonder if you can". VOTING P FOR GETTING THE LYRICS WROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG! (kidding)

also hexagonal wand is wrong color. E.

This was wonderful!

This made me remember one of my favorite songs. Rated E.

edit: After I made this comment I listened to the song like 50 times
