    FUCKING HELL. In one page of comic you gave Destiny more heart than the game itself has. Bravo, gentlemen. Bravo!

    P.S: I really, really want more of this. This is what Destiny was missing!

    i honestly thought this comic was going to be a joke making fun of how Destiny is so threadbare with story and puts what story it has in stuff you have to access outside the game

    This I like.

    Again, I like the regular weekly comics, but I love this stuff. I don't particularly care about Destiny, but your collective capacity to create immersive bits of story has consistently amazed me. I understand it's got to be a lot more work, but if you're taking votes, I vote for more like this.

    Thanks.

    Having not played Destiny...

    Navi really changed.

    And I don't understand why Link is blue, and female, and has a gun.

    Fantastic comic, it really is too bad that the story isn't conveyed in the game. Because they did write a story. I just don't understand the bare-bones approach. The gameplay is a lot of fun though.

    Meh. As a player of the eponymous SF RPG since the days of the little black books, it looks funny to me without that second, British L.

    Yeah, but, despite that, it's an outstanding piece of work.

    I would pay handsomely for either a Mike and Jerry graphic novel about Destiny, or a... word novel.

    That was beautiful! I don't play Destiny, but this glimpse into the game's universe was enough to get me thinking...

    This is why I come to PA, I enjoy everything else, but this kind of art is just stunning. Amazing work, thank you for this.

    The idea of Destiny is so good that I just can't bring myself to stop playing, even though Bungie has dropped the ball with the story. This comic really helps to fill that void.

    If PA illustrated & embellished some of the Grimoire cards along this style, that would be absolutely amazing.

    If you guys just wanted to start dedicating all your time to Destiny fanfic... I would be okay with that. This was great.

    Gabe this strip is amazing. I haven't posted much, but I just wanted to say that it's been a privilege to watch your journey and this strip to me represents your taking your art and craft to a new level. Beautiful!

    the are/is issue in panel 7/8 is giving me a grammar aneurysm (grammuerysm), too

    too bad Destiny is apparently never getting a PC port, it seems fun

    I quit playing Destiny at or around level 7. Maybe 8.

    The the primary reason was story. Destiny is about "something something, the darkness" and really it's just Halo with new words. You still have the Covenant and the Flood, but they go by another name.

    And because the "big bad" is called the Darkness, it always calls to mind that D&D parody video in which the elf wizard wants to attack the darkness with magic missile. And since the story of Destiny, which tries to take itself seriously, only serves to call a parody video to mind, I cannot take it seriously.

    Basically every time I set out on a quest in Destiny, I was thinking in my mind "I want to attack the darkness."

    Please sir could we have some more? Bungee can't give us a story for reasons I don't have time to explain.

    It appears The Elucidator is much more savvy than he appears. First off, he recognized that this was about Destiny without it saying (I supposed so, but am not at all familiar with the game). Secondly, he recognized that this was specifically about DLC in Destiny (again, better than I did). But most impressively of all, he did all this while peering into the unknowable beyond that is the future.


    Also, this is a great comic. I would love to see this sort of thing for Borderlands. Or maybe WildStar.

    It is both sad (Bungie) and amazing (Gabe) that this is, easily, the most beautiful and compelling story associated with Destiny so far. It is so personal. It smacks of love.

    This is a great comic, and a fantastic pair of news-posts.
