This is absolutely terrible. This requires a rating below poor, in reality.

Though I gave it a provisional P rating, I'm not convinced it's poor. The hint about it being a sequel, where the first installment was a big pun on "reflection" and now we have "turning" in addition, leaves me to think there's something decent going on here, and I just don't get it.

Much as I'd like to believe this is merely a lead-in to a conclusion that will both make everything make perfect sense and leave us all flabbergasted, there's a subtle difference between the setup that leaves the reader questioning and anticipating, and the setup that leaves the reader rolling his eyes and throwing the comic out.

On a side note, the Google ad seems to be covering the byline, at least for me. Who could our mystery author be? Maybe it's me! Spooky spooky!

I need this explained to me. Yeah, explaining things usually ruins the joke, but I'm really curious to what's going on here.

I would have thought that after the long gap of comiclessness, there'd be a couple good ones...

Maybe Dudley's Dungeon is going the way of all great pet projects after the original author who made it great developed other areas of interest.

This... makes absolutely no sense. Stop writing comics while you're on acid, please.

I can't rate this. Absolutely nothing in it makes any sense to me. Maybe there's some hidden meaning in those panels but quite clearly no one has figured it out yet.

Then again, maybe there isn't.

TrollThe troll shambled closer. He was perhaps eight feet tall,
perhaps more. His forward stoop, with arms dangling past
thick claw-footed legs to the ground, made it hard to tell.
The hairless green skin moved upon his body. His head was a
gash of a mouth, a yard-long nose, and two eyes which drank
the feeble torchlight and never gave back a gleam.
[...]
Like a huge green spider, the troll's severed hand ran on its
fingers. Across the mounded floor, up onto a log with one
taloned forefinger to hook it over the bark, down again it
scrambled, until it found the cut wrist. And there it grew
fast. The troll's smashed head seethed and knit together.
He clambered back on his feet and grinned at them. The
waning faggot cast red light over his fangs.

I am hesitant to give this a P, as I don't understand it at all; however having read it several times, I'll take the plunge.

A comic of this quality producing so many comments (albeit most are confused). That should warrant an E actually :)

Ah ha! This is great! One of the best comics Vins has ever written! Using nr.2 with barbarianThey dressed alike -- in buckskin boots, leathern breeks and
deerskin shirts, with broad girdles that held axes and short
swords; and they were all gaunt and scarred and hard-eyed;
sinewy and taciturn.
They were wild men, of a sort, yet there was still a wide
gulf between them and the Cimmerian. They were sons of
civilization, reverted to a semi-barbarism. He was a
barbarian of a thousand generations of barbarians. They had
acquired stealth and craft, but he had been born to these
things. He excelled them even in lithe economy of motion.
They were wolves, but he was a tiger.

was subtle and I didn't get it until he changed into a Mage, then everything popped into place.
