This week on Goblins Comic: Topical humor, for that fresh-from-the-headlines taste!

I must not be very topical, because I have no clue what this is about.

Ah. A trailer with Inception BWOOONGs throughout, but with a slight grind pitch and redshift to make it grand and otherworldly.

I'll pass.

Did that pop reference really need a whole page?

Thanks though.

...Why is Min Max snapping off spider statues, then snapping off a leg and tossing them off the bridge?

Because Min Max sort of lacks self-preservation instincts...

He just does stuff and is then pikachu-face when some of it blows up in his face. For example wanting to pee on god's supreme warrior's sword until he was told that dick go boom...

On separate note, I do get "today's joke", but I got to agree with Generic that it mayhaps didn't need the whole page. Most of us did get it already, and clearly for those of us who didn't, a whole page didn't help. :P

Or because of an attempt to have ANYTHING happen apart from an establishing shot and some talking heads refering a current summer release movie?

Speaking of MinMax and his impulses. I find it odd that Kin is alright with his behaviour, if this is one of those things. He botched the puzzle to open the door by breaking it, and him just banging on the door nearly had her torn to shreds. This just happened. She is still bleeding. He is already mindlessly breaking stuff. I would be pissed!

It's all sorts of surreal strip compared to Goblins in general. The knowledge of MoM in the first place, Min Max not only knowing it, understanding what happened in it (haven't seen it, but since it does jump around dimensions and whatnot, I'd see Min Max struggling to follow....) and up to a point where even Min Max would be able to understand complex outcomes and endings and judge them for their flaws, instead of going "Yeah! Magic! Pewpewca-splow!! So cool!!"

So Kin getting caught on Min Max' tease and not paying any attention to him further endangering them juat kinda goea with the flow.

And sure, shecould have poked the things at the start, but that still doesn't mean they stay safe throughout the bridge...

This should have been a text only tweet, not a multi panel page from the comic.

If we were getting a page or more per week then fine, throw in a joke page with two panels of the alternating speech bubbles. But when we are getting one page per month each one already barely advancing the plot? Just makes me want to give up on the comic since Eli obviously already has. I feel like I'm watching the MCU and she just gave us Eternals.

Honestly for the next page she should just recycle this one only replace the joke conversation with one that actually advances the story.

Speaking of this.
How close is Kore to catching up with anyone again?
How close are they to the end of the dungeon?
What will they do once they reach it?
How close is Hell to spew over and destroy the realm?
Does anyone care about the realm?
How close are they to figuring out how to go to Hell?
Kin brought up the subject of Hell a while back. Why is she now engaging with 4th wall breaking banter instead of getting the plot back on track?


Also:
When did Kin find out that any alt-Kin was evil? Or is she she just talking OOC at this point?

I think someone levelled up again and finally started putting some points into the INT stat...

Maybe to impress Ken with his huge INT stat?
