If you don't know who Ennio Morricone is, he's the composer for a lot of the classic "spaghetti westerns" such as the old Clint Eastwood ones. There was almost always a scene in those movies where they'd just focus on the eyes of the cowboys as they were getting ready to shoot it out.

Usually no one ran away though...

Ah yes...the classic Monty Python defense! What's next? A Benny Hill style chase scene?

I wish that I made a "flee" sound when I ran away from people!

@WhiteOwl - the original title for this strip WAS going to be "The draugr ran away way... bravely ran away away... " but it seemed too long :)

@Jacob - making a 'flee' sound is a big responsibility and takes years to master.

@Steve - thanks very much Steve, glad you like it :)

@Pixie - I don't know that song, so I'll say it's the wrong one. But I'll forgive you if (and only if)... you have your CVS card? :)

I was imagining the whistling tune, where two gunmen are facing each other in a dusty street, and a tumbleweed rolls by.

Man, if they have to break out Super Angry faerie for the first threat that comes along, what's going to happen when the next super baddy comes out?

@Magravan - good question! They may just be up the creek without a paddle....
