Page 617.

Managed to work in one or two more "tone" jokes to help with the continuity from Friday to today. Aren't you glad?

And of course we return to the "where does the axe come from" conversation, which is yet another callback to the AF Year One where Mika complains to Rok about being chased by a faerie with a giant axe.

Today's page was penciled & inked while watching THE ALMIGHTY JOHNSONS, which is a show from New Zealand about a bunch of Norse Gods living as mortals in New Zealand. Funny, well done show that I'd never heard of before. Definitely worth a look if you haven't seen it before.

White Owl
what I like best about this series is how often the main characters find themselves off track because of their bickering. Good questions all the way through though.

@White Owl - I try to write the characters to be the way I am. I tend to get off topic pretty easily and seque around a lot. To me that's just how conversations tend to work: you eventually get to the point, but only after bouncing around a bit.

The Axe of Hammerspace: enemy gets a -2 AC penalty while distracted by its inexplicable materialising.

@Dodom - Maybe when Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition comes out, I'll see about comign up with AF's character traits :)

Shouldn't people know better than to ask AF where she got an axe from? I was pretty sure that was common sense. :P

*axes person in the chest*
"It comes out of you, DUH!"
*demonstrates by pulling axe out of person*

@Dodom - that sounds perfectly reasonable to me :)

@BittenUsagi - I think it's completely reasonable people would want to know where the axe magically appears from. Y'know.. so if there's some kind of warning just prior to it's appearance they can be on the lookout for it.

Also, common sense is never really all that common.
