@ "+7 ExcaliburAt first only its tip was visible, but then it rose, straight,
proud, all that was noble and great and wondrous. The tip of
the blade pointed toward the moon, as if it would cleave it
in two. The blade itself gleamed like a beacon in the night.
There was no light source for the sword to be reflecting
from, for the moon had darted behind a cloud in fear. The
sword was glowing from the intensity of its strength and
power and knowledge that it was justice incarnate, and that
after a slumber of uncounted years its time had again come.
After the blade broke the surface, the hilt was visible, and
holding the sword was a single strong, yet feminine hand,
wearing several rings that bore jewels sparkling with the
blue-green color of the ocean.

, check! +7 silver saberFlashed all their sabres bare,
Flashed as they turned in air,
Sab'ring the gunners there,
Charging an army, while
All the world wondered:
Plunged in the battery smoke,
Right through the line they broke;
Cossack and Russian
Reeled from the sabre-stroke
Shattered and sundered.
Then they rode back, but not--
Not the six hundred.

The balrog...  It came to the edge of the fire and the light faded as
if a cloud had bent over it. Then with a rush it leaped
the fissure. The flames roared up to greet it, and wreathed
about it; and a black smoke swirled in the air. Its streaming
mane kindled, and blazed behind it. In its right hand
was a blade like a stabbing tongue of fire; in its left it
held a whip of many thongs.
'Ai, ai!' wailed Legolas. 'A Balrog! A Balrog is come!'

Eh. I thought it was alright until I realized it was a newt(kinds of) small animal, like a lizard, which spends most of
its time in the water.
        [ Oxford's Student's Dictionary of Current English ]

"Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the cauldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg and howlet's wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble."

jokes are pretty tired, but this one was well done. Rated E.

The correct phrasing is "Nothing in the world can stop me now!", but still very good.

With how dangerous newts are to Dudley, he should consider taming them sometime :)

Well Mordae, you have to factor that newts are only dangerous to HIM. =P

This is one of those comics that just make you slam your head into your desk.

I give it an E.

But... Dogley turning into an angelic being?

Antheridium, I suggest you pay closer attention to the things you read.

This comic had the most predictable punchline of any comic I've ever seen throughout the entire archives. And seriously, it's done before. "Oh, Dudley has a guaranteed ascension but loses anyway"

Two week days without updates again... Seems like there's already again a lack in new strips.

Maybe I submit something again... But first I need a better idea than with my first foray ;) (Although it would be a tough job to make an even worse comic.)
