#559 - A Book in the Hand

Fun trivia: When I was first writing this page, I was commenting on the golden accents to Atari before remembering the book already had a design, this plain appearance and strange emblem on the front. I imagine it was supposed to originally reflect a phoenix or feather in some way, but in these new HD™ graphics, it's become a bit abstract.

Also fun story: Back in the day, Ian misspelled "phoenix" as "pheonix". I actually intended to keep it that way as a potential plot point, until he eventually corrected the spelling in later pages.

Also also: Comments give me life. Leave more comments! :D Thinking about advertising the comic more soon to hopefully pull in more readers. I lost a lotttttt back when I had to take a hiatus. Whoops. :P

EDIT: Seems some people thought this was a new character. Nope! He's the one talking to Oligarch in the first revival page. He's also the character Oligarch is speaking with way back when Reka was killed.
So he's been there! Whether Ian intended it to go like this or not. ;)

Oh, he's been around a long time. Galgarion's been reporting to him since the Captain Rabogee arc: http://rpgworld.keenspot.com/d/20011130.html

So, oddly enough, this is the first Webcomic I ever read, the original I mean. I was 15 when I started reading it, and it really got me into Webcomics, many of which I still follow. I'm 32 now and it's amazing to see how this continue and still be able to enjoy these characters. Thank you for picking up the story and giving it the conclusion that it deserves.

Aw, thank you for the kind words! I'm similar myself, now 30. It may not be Ian's original intended end, but hopefully it's something people can enjoy. :)

To be fair on the Phoenix/Pheonix thing, there could easily be two books. Two halves of the book? Something that would throw a spanner into...Whatever the plan may be. It'd be unlikely, since the heroes aren't involved with it, but possible.
