Wow, Friday again! And today's page didn't really take that long, which is always a good thing. This is normally where I'd say "but panel 1 really kicked my ass", but honestly that didn't happen this time around. The dialogue even pretty much wrote itself, which doesn't always happen.

Heck, even the title wrote itself.

And that wraps it up for this week. Next week, Merlin does Merlin-ish things. And other stuff happens.

Oh, and tomorrow (5/7) I'll be at I WANT MORE COMICS in Westminster, Colorado for Free Comic Book Day. I'll be doing sketches and working on Angry Faerie and probably talking about very nerdy things. So if you're going to be there, stop on by and say hi.

not to say the page was bad, in fact it was great! but it feels like the drugar sex thing is being overused abit. like you could put in diffrent jokes or get closer to the fight. im just saying this page feels like... pointless filler

i still think its great, it just that it doesn't do anything for character and needlessly slows down the action, IMHO

please dont kill me T.T

It didn't feel like filler to me. There had to be a Merlin/Draugr confrontation; I'm glad that confrontation involved d!ck jokes.

@leyna - glad to know you'll be back again on Monday (was there a doubt??). As for whether this was filler, I'll talk about that below.

@Pixie - ooh snaps! I hadn't thought of using that one.

@Lina - I agree there had to be a Merlin/Draugr confrontation. I'm glad that you like that it involved dick jokes :)

@Lawelite - Thanks for saying it's a great page. I don't know that it's "great", but I appreciate the compliment. As for it being pointless filler... I have to disagree. As Lina points out, the Draugr just smashed through the floor on Wednesday which was his first reveal to Merlin that he had joined the other team (ha, innuendo!). The first panel has Merlin addressing that, the second panel has the Draugr stating his reasons for choosing his side, and the final panels show us that Merlin is ready to take action. So I don't think it's pointless filler. That being said, I agree that I've made plenty of sex-related jokes in regards to the Draugr. In this instance though, I think I managed to work the dick jokes in *and* progress the story, including leaving the story hanging until Monday to show what happens now that Merlin is aware of the Draugr's defection. So yes, I probably could have put in different jokes (and in fact, I re-wrote the dialogue a couple of times before settling on the final version seen here), so your mileage may vary.

But stay tuned for Monday where there won't be any dick jokes at all. Unless I end up re-writing the dialogue somehow.

Frankenstein's monster probably had the same sentiments as the Draugr.

@Linden - that's why Frankenstein's monster fell madly in love with the first woman they made for him. It's not easy being an undead monster lookin' for love.
