Y'know, out of all of the possible problems that could've arisen... I don't think anyone was expecting a flying tree.
Rush 13th Jul 2014, 9:29 PM edit delete reply
No one expects the Spanish-...Flying tree.

You know, I was thinking the last panel "Where'd the ground go? ....nah, that can't be it."

How they will escape this one is beyond my knowledge
maybe assok will transform into his final form?

I would bet RGB is afraid of heights

You would be too, with a TV for a head.

Oh dear, RGB seems to be afraid of heights... (Well, you know, along with everything else he encounters.)
Liliet 13th Oct 2014, 1:19 PM edit delete reply
RGB actually doesn't strike me as a coward in any meaningful sense at all. Rather, he's well aware of the dangers, and literally everything they encounter is dangerous in some way - less so to him, more so to Hero. She's a plucky kid oblivious to danger, so RGB gets saddled with being overly cautious and boring to prevent her from getting killed.

For himself, he doesn't seem to be much afraid of anything. Remember his discussion with TOby? "She torn me into twenty pieces and stitched together with my nerves. I wonder what she'll do to you?" "Mm. I wonder..." // "You are going to die, you know." "I'll keep that in mind"
And best of all, his conversation with Madras before that: "Have you found someone even more foolish than yourself?" <= about Hero surviving being pierced by Fears because she wasn't afraid.

This kind of subtly points at RGB being pretty much fearless, just aware of risk.

TOby aid "your going to die y'know" to hero not RGB

I just got into this comic a week ago and have fallen in love with the story and all the characters! So excited to see where this goes. Yay! Also...may be contemplating some cosplay for this.

I, uh... what the hell? Now I feel like the tree's going to turn into some... bird because it's probably... never actually been a tree this whole time...
Is it just me or does this kind of remind you of the nightmare stuff only more flowing and less jagged?
Hatter 13th Jul 2014, 10:01 PM edit delete reply
Ah, it gets weirder. What should you do when on a flying tree?
*Runs off screaming with suspense.*

I've seen this person post on nearly every page with cryptic messages.
I think they know a lot more than we do.

There is no secret.
Just enjoying a fine show,

MAGNUS! You really should add Magnus to save them!! BD But you would have to ask 0chromat.

In the second to last panel, is it just me, or is the tree turning into a deer?

yep... that's probably how i would react to waking up in the sky.

Is the tree going anywhere, then, with that reddish... tendon... anchoring it in place? And would they want it to?

Well, it is simple really. All you have to do is first make sure all the parts of the jar are sterile by boiling them. Next you put the contents in the jars put the lids on and seal them.

ok... i'm just now realizing that hero is looking very NOT IMPALED right now.
(or did i miss something?)
Jackie 18th Jul 2014, 8:16 PM edit delete reply
RGB said earlier that if Hero dreams then the wound she got from the Fear would heal. She's been sleeping all night, so I assume she dreamed.

just finished re-reading the whole thing to get me re-amped for the next update! GAH

"In a"/cue sudden screaming as tree appears to yank on connecting tendon-thing
Holy crap what is this what is even OHGODMYBRAIN...
Kitpup 17th Jul 2014, 5:54 PM edit delete reply
Thankfully, that was actually Asok who was screaming, as you might be able to tell from the speech bubble.
AmnRavenloft 15th Jul 2014, 11:33 PM edit delete reply
GOD... RGB is like a cross between Professor Hershel Layton, Dick Van Dyke, and Reaver from the Fable series... I can't stand the overload of dapper...

Also: with this flying tree after the branch having been in the Hero's 'schism' (that was through her heart) is it possible that she was returning life to it? A heart 'Beat' like the title of this chapter implies? She is made out of 'Stuff' after all, and isn't that what trees are made out of?

This comic is beautiful with the art and RGB and the story and hero, I cant handle all the amazingness.

By the way how would you pronounce RGB, would it be each separate letter (R G B) or all together Rgby
RushAround 16th Jul 2014, 2:12 PM edit delete reply
Did you just call him Rugby.
Inky_Moon 16th Jul 2014, 2:21 PM edit delete reply
No like Rigby (I know its weird but I don't like saying their names wrong)
Blackmist 16th Jul 2014, 9:06 PM edit delete reply
I think it's RGB, like the letters. Rgby or whatever is too hard to say, I'm really not sure how you'd pronounce it...
Inky_Moon 17th Jul 2014, 2:59 AM edit delete reply
Okay thank you
Guest 17th Jul 2014, 5:14 AM edit delete reply
Wait- is RGB screaming with them? Because now that I look at the speech bubbles it seems like he is.
AmnRavenloft 18th Jul 2014, 12:17 AM edit delete reply
All three are screaming. You can tell by the design of the speech bubbles and the letters. Lower case is Assok, RGB's is the one with squares and Hero's is the one with circles.
Beau 8th Aug 2014, 4:48 PM edit delete reply
I love how Rgb's mouth turns green and yellow in the last panel. Poor babe is feeling sick
