*Dramatic Music* Oh no he didn't! There isn't much to this week's page, but don't think I've been slacking off (I kinda was). We're also adding in a prologue, 5 extra pages too (hopefully) help explain and introduce this world. 2 pages in Ch.1 had to be edited for it to make sense, so please make sure to check those out.

This is basic villainy 101. Galian is so damn confident they're coming back that he's going to get other people to do all the work for him. Why risk his men, y'know? Does it make since for the villain to leave the room while the hero dies? No, but he will, and he does, and he did.

i think Galian "cares" for his men; after all, you need an army to do evil stuff.

Talos, remember: there is NOTHING original right now (heroic sacrifice? DONE. Villian leaving the hero go? DONE Villian dying for leaving them go? DONE).
If you have a very narrow perception, it will be a "ripoff of something" for you, just try to enjoy the comic without thinking too much about the "cliches" (at least for me they aren't, they are tropes)

(yeah "i'm" the one that is complaining)
ANYWAY...

i don't think Galian will send his men into a senseless death. After reading this page and looking how he talks with the soldier, i think that REALLY deep inside he cares about them, after all his whole unit followed him when he deserted the military

A generic coward always needs somebody to do the dirty work for him. Looks like we'll see some mage vs. mage fights pretty soon :)

Can't wait till next week

Deo, if you do not lay off talos i swear to god i am going to argue with you every chance i get. Im sick of people singling him out b/c he actually has the balls to criticize the comic. enough, it has been shown what he says counts as constructive criticism, and he's polite if nothing else....unlike some snarky little noob i could mention.

Allright everyone lets just all relax, We're trying to move the story forward, and given Galian's "popularity", we figured it be best to just leave his actions a little mysterious. In the coming pages we drop a little history and character info (for people that haven't read the wiki), and since that's one of the things you guys have been asking for We're just trying to get to it. Besides if We had competent villains, Loth would have died at the end of Ch.1

Man bob, you want to talk about a blast from the past, I remember your icon from the early 2000's.
And on important topics, we've already seen someone who follows the evil over lord list. Cade's buddy Lord Pras√°tko, it made sense to represent another side of villains.

Deo and Talos you need to both stop and enjoy the comic
Talos Sunday, the 16th of October at 9:41 PM, 2011 edit delete reply
Don't presume to tell me what to do. If I think something needs to be said, I will say it politely and directly.

"Man bob, you want to talk about a blast from the past, I remember your icon from the early 2000's."

Actually not sure what you want to tell me with that statement ...

@All Fans,
Alright, this has gone on long enough. I've see where some of the fans are coming from about the criticism. It would be nice if it's polite, but that's not why I'm posting.
The Artist wants to turn off the comments in total, that was his response when everyone started bickering a few weeks back and trolling the fans, he wants to turn them off now.
I don't want the comments to go away, I personally want to hear what everyone says, however if it's going to cause flame wars and yelling back and forth I'm more than willing to turn off the comments and tell you go post in the forum.
So, as a request from the writer, can we just be nicer to everyone?
Say Please, Thank You and You're Welcome occasionally? I know the habitat of the inter-webs means you can be as assholish as possible without repercussions, but if it's detracting from the overall enjoyment of the website then I'll do what I have to to preserve the enjoyment for the many against the enjoyment of the few.
The modes of communication would change slightly if I turn off the comments, you'll be able to speak your mind in the forums or through emails, which is where I get a lot of complaints about this bickering. So much so I decided I needed to say something about it. 100 emails by 100 different email addresses about the back and forth in one morning is to much for my inbox.

I approve of turning off the comment system. And maybe also have a section there for debate/critique.

well, i was trying to have a nice discussion with talos, but it seems like with some little things i said, things went...... bad. and no, i wasn't telling talos to shut up, i was just saying that everything has been tried at least once.(and at least for me, i didn't say something wrong or in a bad manner in the post.)

just for the record, hopefully i will never tell someone to shut up because his opinions about the comic (and if i do, it will be unconscious, and i'll apologize)

i concur with groove about the debate/critique part, so we can place there the improvements we see fit, and place here what we liked about the page.

and since it seems like i started the fight.... sorry. i'll try to make better posts next time

I like most some of the "Manga-crap". I'm allowed to choose and develop my own style right? To draw how I like and the way that makes me happy, yes? I like webcomics like Spinnerette and Maliki, I like Akira, and Tenchi, and DBZ. I also enjoy Menage a 3(for some reason) and Dresden Codak and I like the art of guys like Paul Pelletier and the Kubert family. A lot of comics and manga are crap, I personally haven't purchased any books in two or so years, simply because I haven't seen anything I liked. I'm not saying I'm exclusively going to draw manga, I just thought stylistically it fit for this comic. I also love flip-floping from extremely dark, serious "emotional" stuff, to like a fart joke. Even typing the words "fart joke" make me giggle, that's just the way it is. So as I've said in previous post, everybody here has a front row seat to Our artistic growth. Enjoy.

Talos, remember that what you say is from your point of view; for some might be "manga crap" for others will be just right, and for others will be an excellent comic.

and like eflint said: let them develop their own style, after all it's their comic.

also, not because you are the one posting what can(or should) be improved, means you are the "voice of reason(as you said)" you are just another poster; like each and every one of us.

Exatly my point this is a comunity in which we share are opinions but if we laet said opinios turn into fighting and bikering then it stops becoming fun. I don't know about anyone ells but I frequent this webcomic to have fun.

in defense of the manga/webcomics that appear to some as "suck, crap, etc"

I'm happy people are visualizing something out of nothing. Don't know about you, but I come from a time where there was no internet.

Ever since its birth, I think we can be happy that we are seeing anything. Personally, I could give a rat's-ass about how genuine or suckage a comic is - I'm just happy that somebody is making something out of nothing. :)

While I do agree that certain comics may be cliché or are worth thrashing, I disagree with having sites like badwebcomics decide what is good or bad. The site does seem a bit too biased in my eyes. I might as well could make a site about bad-badwebcomics and bitch about their biased opinions ^^ The circle would never end.

Despite all that rambling, we have the fortune here at Loth to say what we think and the artists/writer respond.

on a difforent note I know Galians an ass but collecting a reward on you own kid is just cold.

first talos, yes, some of the BWW are valid, but you need to think when they overreact and in the time that i've check it, they DO.

also, when has the story replaced quality, and all that stuff that you said with "lizard boobs"?

and talos, maybe the people labels you like that because it might be partially true, try to think about that.
and no ii'm not calling you a troll flamer or hater.

ain't villains like that? they exist so thay can be pwned by the heroes, or in rather strange occasions; to win.

yet, we have only seen galian for very little time(6 pages) and unless you want a wall of text in all the pages, there isn't enough time to get a good character development from him
Deo Wednesday, the 19th of October at 9:50 PM, 2011 edit delete reply
Deo
well, i can tell you what little character development they have made to him, he's a raper, he might care about his men skilled swordsman, and keeps his men in shape by making them fight against the elves( of course most of it is taken from the wiki, but no that much people reads it)

Talos, you say what they "need" to hear, but remember that is *just* from your point of view, and you don't represent all the readers.

I wanted it noted that we're not discouraging criticism and I would sincerely like to thank Talos and others for critiquing.

Why I've stopped comments for right now is simply to let everyone cool off and stop bickering about things that are not comment related.
See you tomorrow on the new comic.

well i do realize this has been a somewhat dead issue for almost a week, i would like to applaud loth for her words. i would also like to apologize to deo for jumpong on his ass, and have a few comments.

first off, i think this page holds the record for not only number of comments, but also length of replies. i could be wrong tho.

also, am i the only one that noticed that loth has no pants in the wanted poster? since i havent seen sparks in a bit i have to keep it going...
