    Wait who is Jim Darkmagic

    Gabe's LARP character.

    I thought his character was the old wizard with Alzheimer's who forgot to wear pants.

    Fantastic art, don't care about Jim, don't care about D&D, can't wait till it ends. Same really as with the CTS etc.

    Oh well.

    I think that was a one-shot deal. Jim's from the game they've been playing with Scott Kurtz and Wil Wheaton.

    That's one of their old projects. Robot detective.

    Kind of like CSI:NY, but with a robot partner, and not in NY.

    During the podcast I featured this as having less dialogue. Narration, maybe.

    I like how the leader of the Lookouts seems to be fusion of Snake Plissken and Aragorn.

    I don't wanna kill anybody. I don't like bullies. I don't care where they're from.

    I really liked this comic and I'm looking forward to the other 2. I have a feeling it's going to be really tough to pick from the 3.

    I'm always amazed how well PA uses minor dialogue with great artwork to express so much information.

    I bet the Jim Darkmagic one will win out of sheer desire for more assholish douchebaggery.

    Anyway, is this comic called Lookouts or May We Die In The Forest? I'm glad they didn't go with that idea of having the kids bloody and missing squad members already.

    Pretty good comic, but I'm even more excited about the very idea of this event. Very cool.

    I suspect the robot one will be more my style.

    "May We Die In the Forest" is the motto of the Lookouts.

    I actually found myself paying more attention to the blonde kid, the one that's obviously younger than everyone else and needs help from the ranger.

    This turned out a lot better than I thought it would, on both the writing and arting fronts

    Awesome comic but I will withhold judgment until I see the other two contenders

    Gabe is subtly pushing us to this one. He wants to draw more about the Daughters of the Eyrewood.

    edit: And I was only confused on the title because Tycho's post was titled something other than the title.

    The ranger will sacrifice himself to save the kid.
