Don't forget to put in your entries for the fill-in-the-punchline contest before I post the next comic on April 8th, 2008!

Conan and Subotai echo the discussion in Chapter 26. Chris (who plays Conan) isn't experienced at playing fighters, so, no, he's not being sarcastic here. The observant will notice a bit of foreshadowing in the last panel.

I think that was a real rat Arnold kicked in this scene. It took me a while to get a good screen cap of that mouse flying.

I experimented with a more standard comic style in this one - a white background with black borders on the panels. Mostly it was to see if I could do it, but it's also to see just how it changes the feel of the comic. It definitely brightens things up, but I don't think it adds much. I have a version of this in the standard black (it's not hard to change, since I used layers for the effect).

Unless I get feedback to the contrary, I'm going to stick to the black background.

Comments? Throw your words at the forum thread and see if it sticks.

Transcript:

Scene: Conan and Subotai descend down the well into the depths of the Serpent Cult Tower. Bones, rotting flesh, and rats cover the floor.
Subotai:Just how do muscle-head and She-Ra get to sneak around? I'm the only one with move silently.
DM:There's music and chanting, so you just need to avoid knocking over a china cabinet, and stay out of sight.
Conan:{ kicks a rat }
Rat:Squeek!
Subotai:I'm the only one with hide in shadows, too.
DM:Conan just needs to follow your lead.
Subotai:Why, again, do we need a thief?
Conan:Maybe there's a lock.
