It's A Joke, Son. I Swear, I Pitch 'Em, But They Just Fly Over His Head

The Order of The Stick. I may have mentioned it before.

The writer of the series has temporarily reverted to a Monday/Wednesday twice-a-week schedule. (Incidentally, so did College Roomies From Hell!!!". A couple other comics I read have been slowing down their updates. I don't think it's a trend or anything, but it's depressing that this summer might be remembered as The Summer Of Poor Updates. Especially since it's not yet summer). He makes reference to this in this recent comic. Instead of some tired or trite parody of the popular theme restaurant "T.G.I. Friday's" like . . . oh, I don't know, off the top of my head: "Oh God It's Monday's," "Too Bad It's Tuesday's," "Thank Heavens It's Hump-day's," whatever. Instead, he provides a cheap parody of "T.G.I. Friday's" and makes a self-referential joke at his own expense.

And he draws bewinged buffalo.

The perfect strip.

Technology Is A Beautiful Thing

First, there was the transparent substance that can stop a .50 caliber round:

Then came the beam weapon with nonlethal applications:

Now?

Energy shields.

Well, okay. It's more a series of radiating energy beams that surround the source and work more like chaff. But that's still really cool.

Probably causes cancer like crazy though.

Lost Spoilers (May 3rd, 2006)

Okay, so when Michael shot Ana-Lucia I figured he must be working for The Others, like he was turned, a double agent.

But then he shoots himself!?

Fhat the wuck?
