Continuation of the side jokes.

Yes. This is word-for-word the start of the "Miracle Max" scene from The Princess Bride. I couldn't really do the whole scene, as there wasn't anyone in the Conan film to play the part of Max's wife. The script was written by William Goldman.

In other news, it seems that Hollywood hasn't had enough of Conan. There are distant plans to create a film on Thulsa Doom, of all characters, and a re-visioning of Red Sonja. Of course, when I started this comic, back in March of 2008, there were plans to recreate Conan the Barbarian, too; at least that one was canceled soon into production.

There doesn't seem to be a thread for this chapter. Check for yourself at the forum for chapters.

Transcript:

Scene: Inigo and Fezzik arrive with Wesley's body in front of a small wooden house. Inigo knocks on the door
Max:Go away. { Inigo knocks harder until Max answers. } What? What!?
Inigo:Are you the Miracle Max who worked for the king all those years?
Max:The king's stinking son fired me. And thank you so much for bringing up such a painful subject. While you're at it, why don't you give me a nice paper cut, and pour lemon juice on it. We're closed! { Max closes a the door hole, but Inigo still knocks. } Beat it or I'll call the brute squad!
Fezzik:I'm on the brute squad.
Max:You are the brute squad!
Inigo:We need a miracle. It's very important.
Max:Look, I'm retired. Besides, why would you want someone the king's stinking son fired. I might kill whoever you want to make the miracle.
Inigo:He's already dead.
Max:He is, eh? I'll have a look. Bring him in.
Scene: Inside the cottage, with Wesley lying dead on the table.
Max:I've seen worse.
Scene: Outside the cottage, Max waves to the group.
Max:Bye bye, boys! Have fun storming the castle!
