Angry Faerie has kind of gotten away from being a 'gag-per-strip' kind of thing in a lot of ways. Back when AF first launched (almost a year ago!) I tried to make it a point to have a punch-line of some kind, if not every strip then *almost* every strip. As things progressed, I've gotten away from that. AF has become more of an adventure strip with some humor rather than a humor strip with some adventure. Or at least I think it has. However I want to get back to having some more humor on a more frequent basis, so hopefully this will be the start of that.

Not that I don't want things to continue to be adventure-based, because as I've said many times, I look at AF being in the same vein as Dragon Ball. I just finished reading the whole series, and there is always a good amount of humor in there as well as the adventure stuff, so if I can find that balance I'd be happy...

...and if they decide to make it into an anime that becomes a world-wide phenomenon I'd be ok with that too.

And that's enough from me. What have you good folks got to say this Wednesday?

What I have to say:

You can't be that surprised, Rok - I mean, she's not the sympathetic faerie now, is she?

Technically AF 'died' too... :)

As for humour vs adventure and best laid plans, I know exactly how you feel :D

White Owl
A good gag...She's NOT exactly sympathetic. And her comment about "I'm the only one allowed to kill the elf" mirrors the Joker's feelings about Batman. Faerie seems a lot more buff lately, Has she been working out?

@Jrade - The question is, just how surprised is Rok? Under that beard, it's kinda hard to tell, but he certainly doesn't seem all that shocked does he?

@Magravan - Yeah, I suppose if I were to lay out those plans in advance I'd have more to complain about. But clearly AF is just not that well thought out to start with :)

@WhiteOwl - I dunno, I think AF has always been slightly buff. As for her statement that she's the only one allowed to kill the elf, it kind of goes back to just prior to the Draugr's first appearance where AF saves Mika and states that she's the one that will kill him, no one else. Whether she means that or not, I guess we'll never know at this point.

I wouldn't be caught dead singing or listening to Celine Deon. It's a great beginning to my day because now I know I would LIVE in Bullfinch. The only thing that could make it better is another Taylor Swift!

You're making the right decision, in my opinion. I like the ongoing adventure format, laced with humor. It's the best of both worlds, really. By the way, I received your voice mail message and am glad you enjoyed the gift! :)

@leyna - sometimes laws that are imposed by dictators are still good laws. Merlin's law against Celine Dion would fall into that category. Taylor Swift still has escaped notice, or at least Rok didn't make mention of it thus far.

@David - thanks, I'm glad you're enjoying the mix of action & humor. I'm still working on making sure the balance is right. Glad you got my voice mail, and I'll take a picture of the gift and share it with everyone soon :)

@ bbedlam - You're right, he's more sardonic than surprised...I mis-read that at first.
