Oh, I bet people weren't expecting *that* announcement from Rok. I don't have much to add regarding today's strip, other than that final panel is inspired by a panel from The New Teen Titans, drawn by George Perez. There's a page in an issue (which I can't remember off the top of my head) where Donna (Wonder Girl) Troy leaves her boyfriend's apartment and he frames it as a tall panel with no background, to kind of isolate her from everything else.. I always thought it was a particularly effective panel, so while the fourth panel here doesn't completely echo the Perez panel, it hopefully conveys some of the "emotional impact" of the news.

Ok, that being said: on Wednesday somehow I uploaded the strip twice, which means there are comments & ranking votes on both versions. Which version you see seems to vary each time you relaunch your browser. If you check the dropdown menu under the comic, you'll see both versions, so you can read the comments on each if you're so inclined. Hopefully today I'll only have uploaded the strip once.

And so there we have it. Another week of Angry Faerie completed. Monday will be the first strip as a 41 year old. Yes, Saturday is my birthday. If you're looking to give me a present, I am looking for an 11x17 scanner :)

Ok, I'm done rambling. Your turn!

Of course he's dead! He's a threat to the Draugr. The last panel conveys so much...Pathos, disbelief...its almost as if AF can't believe her Bete Noir and punching bag is gone. Now having said that, I don't believe Mika is dead...

I hope this is some kinda nasty comic writer trick.

I'm pretty sure the thought that AF is going the Zombie Storyline is just way to obvious...Isn't it?

@Jrade - thanks for the birthday wishes. I'm planning to have a good one.

@WhiteOwl - I'm glad you liked the last panel. I'm pretty happy with it myself. As for your theory about Mika, only time will tell.

@Pixie - Well said.

@Lina - Would I ever pull a nasty trick? ME? Of course not. I'm far too nice.

@Steve - well that's good. I was trying to catch people off guard with the announcement. Nice to know it paid off.

@leyna - nope, the zombie storyline is over. What happens next is all new.

@Brighid - couldn't say it better m'self :)

anyone cam become a hero and it takes a hero to kill the Drauger. I think that the news of Mika death and whatever comes next may transform AF into being more that just an AF. An AF with a cause, aka a Hero.

@Mostly Harmless - "An AF with a cause" .. wasn't that a marlon brando movie? That aside, it's a good theory. We'll see how things play out.
