The energy vortex seems to be moving slower.

I must admit I don't get it.

A new comic, YAY!

#3 xCheckPoint Wed, 27 Apr 2011 16:10:35
I don't get it, either. And what puzzles me most is that this is #626, while mine is #625 and still not scheduled. Must be too bad for paxeds taste.

But, of course I'm lucky that we got a change here, so I'm thinking about an E no matter if I get the joke or not...

HOLY SHIT A COMIC

Thought this might not be an easy one. Dunno, I was bored.

What has Dudley inexplicably gained between panel 0 and panel 3?

[edit] also look at the footnote

DarthGeek, do you play Crawl? The energy vortices remind me of insubstantial wisps (gray v that appear in groups).

And for those who don't get it, unless I'm mistaken, the idea is that the winter wolf shot through the energy vortex, heating its beam and making it harmless.

#7 solidsnail Thu, 28 Apr 2011 09:18:29
@Dajaaj : I think the beam is heated by the 'trap' (up-energy vortex?) and not by the 'v' (down-energy vortex). Am I being needlessly confusing? I thing this comic would have worked better without the traps.

Derp.

The fog clouds and traps form the symbol for a resistor on an electrical diagram.

Dudley gained cold resistance.

The bit about the energy vortex is also a (somewhat flawed, I know) reference to resistance.

Oh... A clearer setup: Replace the winter wolf with a blue dragon, and have it fire along the line of the traps and vortices. And the traps could be anti-magic fields ("You feel your power drain away!"), the same color as energy vortices. When the bolt of lightning hits Dudley, he "feel[s] a mild tingle."

No offense intended, hindsight is always 20/20.

I thought it had something to do with weather reports :F

Agreed with Dajaaj. But honestly, I'm just glad to see a new comic.
