...they're fingerless.
His fingers touched the staff.
He was smoking.

The electricity must have had some effect. It took him a while to get up again. The gloves look damaged, and his fingers look charred.

It looks like Moss knew about the staff's second function, and informed Glyph beforehand.

Also, I posted in the Mistake thread that there was a dialogue error in Page 5 of this chapter, but it's yet to be fixed.

Danzig: It's be such a shame to kill such a beautiful woman.

It should be: It'll be such a shame...

@Brion: If Flipside is ever made into an anime... You're gonna need some God awesome heavy metal music playing as Glyph gets back up.

Didn't read the part of his brain about the gloves, hu Danzig?

Or Moss supplied them to him, after all, Glyph was missing all his clothes and as someone mentioned, Moss would know about all the Stick's tricks.

I was actually wondering about those gloves, 'cos I didn't see them earlier.

He still has a problem though... His spell for detecting the path of magick is gone.  I guess the gloves nullified his own spells as well.

...WAIT! Has Glyph Nullified just the electric spell against him, or the whole staff?

Honestly, I could see it going either way, but if he just nullified the shock then I wouldn't consider Danzig "beaten" as soundly as Moss is implying, so it's possible that the staff itself was just disenchanted from the nullification that Glyph activated.

So what awesome track would be playing during this fight scene, anyway?


also, why was everyone... except Moss and Morgana surprised? Did Moss make some secret extra plan with Glyph?

So IT lives!
Like I said I would welcome any positive development for our group to get out of that warp box and Danzig.
I still don't like Glyph character, but if he thought this off with Moss behind others back he got my points.
So Glyph had to completely nulify that staff magic/enchantment to make some difference, so Danzig can't zap anymore, it's game over for him.
Of course if his servant with flower is just for a show, and he can't use the energy gathered in the flower for offensive.

I agree. I noticed that too. If they "nullified" the staffs effect so well, why was he a charred husk a few seconds ago? Perhaps we'll get an explanation in the coming strips.
I got 99 problems but a nymphomaniac jester girl ain't one.

Yey for Glyph! After Kin died I was mad when I whought Brion killed another great male character. But now it looks different. Go Glyph go!

Btw, when i was bored i read old interviews and found out this one part with Clairen (already dead assassin from book 0):

Synaid: When you got your tattoo, was "paralyze guys" cheaper then "paralyze anybody" or "paralyze girls" or did you get it intending to only paralyze guys?

Clairen:You don't understand... I didn't choose to get this tattoo. Not exactly. You see, I... I was just looking for a way to become more powerful. And then I met a sorcerer who said he could grant my wish. But, at the time, I didn't know the whole truth... so, I stupidly allowed him to expiriment on my body. Now, I know how lucky  I really am! Those kind of expiriments are illegal, very dangerous... if it had failed, I may have suffered... *shudders* ... a fate worse than death! So, I was very lucky that the expiriment on my body was successful. Actually, there still may be some bad side effects, but as of yet I haven't found out...


So I thought about that MAYBE it was The Thin Man (Meltzer) who made her that tatoo?! What u think?

It's alright, you're American - Americans tend to have a slightly softer attitude as to what's metal. I've heard some americans call The Living End metal before, which is big dose of WTF.

The strange thing is that some of my favorite Metal is actually the Slower stuff for some reason.

Here's an example from the same Canadian Mob: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ollKF8xtDKA

I think its probably 'cos I get all sorts of images in my head of the good old epic slow-motion bad-ass walk. 8)

***************

But yeah, Now I guess we'll find out if he's game enough to tell Escher to cut the flower and try to overpower them with magick.  He might actually have some success if he's got special powers or training from The Thin man but against two members of the Phalanx, Moss and Fata, I don't like his chances... Unless there is something special he or Escher can do with that stored energy.

Maytag confirms in the story by reminding Bern of Claire while saying that Bloody Mary is the worst that he's created "yet." Yes, it's cannon that Claire is one of The Thin Man's experiments.

Yes, as if there wasn't reason to hate Moss before, today's page eliminates all doubt. I don't care about his backstory anymore, he's PONDSCUM. He may be needed to escape, but I share Bern's sentiments about him. He needs to go somewhere far FAR away, and maybe get some good "professional" help.

great male character
What
Consider your current other choices of male protagonists in the series: Moss and Crest... Although admittedly Crest has been improving here and there.

Crest is still overly shy and reserved. Moss is just his twisted self.  Glyph.... Well...



PLUS! His magick and fighting skills actually seem to make him somewhat useful.

The only problem I have with him presently is that he's a bit of a two dimensional charcter, but then he's quite new to the comic so I'm willing to wait a bit longer to learn some of his background.

Well both have an actual fleshed out character to speak of.
Right now glyph, just like kin, is just a walking cliche. The "pervy guy".
Beyond that, we know nothing.

Then you have no excuse and you should be ashamed. Double ashamed if you're from the south. Not because the south has any strong relation to good metal, but just for being southern.

Personally, I find this one totally adapted to the man : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IjYJndzV07c

But we'll need some flash back to the bathroom plan, to fit the lyrics.

Ok, it's been a long time without rest. I shall go.

...You're only just realising now that Moss is a dick?

Would I be correct in presuming that you haven't read all the way through Book 0, including the part where Moss tortured Maytag for the fun of it?

If the term was still in medican use, he'd be diagnosed with Sadistic personality disorder.  Personally, I think Fata Morgana might have masochistic personality disorder which could make their team-up a dangerous combination.

For some reason I keep laughing at the Bullshit stick line.

Danzig fronting up to a club, saying to the women "Hey ladies, wanna see my bullshit stick? It's both shocking and extend-able..."
