I already see Archibald helping Burk on the future... maybe in some crucial moment. ;)
Yesss protect them Burk! And that dude even scared Goldie oooohhh >:O
Strangely serious Burk and his surprisingly practical forethought of quietly hiding. I like the little touch of holding his hand over Pablo's mouth though :D
burk is covering pablo mouth & nose,
in before pablo sneezing and revealing everyone
i really like serious burk. It endlessly annoys me why theres such a big disparity in his behavior in general
Mad props for the Aritocrat, he didn't even got into Blue Thing radar!
I can't shake the feeling Ariara gave them a fake amulet...
Why is the red jewel on the crown still red. Shouldn't that be gold too?
I just realized, it isn't red in the room anymore. When did that stop?
I really do like serious Burk as well. Its nice to see at least part of his apperant stupidity is an act.
@Chillas Someone correctly deduced last page (and Neorice confirmed) that the gold in the crown protected the red jewel from becoming gold
@Mystik It slowly stopped being red after the rock man transformation. You can see it happen panel to panal in http://www.neorice.com/hoh_894
But the red has been gradually going down on each page
It died down around page 894, a little after Ariara injured him.
It's made of gold, so it didn't get affected by his magic.
Burk is known for two things. His unmitigated strength, and his killer instinct. He went against both the Judge and Ariara, whom he accurately observed as being quite strong. He was wary of them, but not afraid to fight them. This is the first time he's shown actual hesitation in attacking something that is quite obviously "evil".
Either he knows something nobody else does about the Ginger Thing, or his instinct is literally flaring up to an eleventy. A guess might be that he's being like this to protect the judge, but he hid up there before knowing that the judge was in specific danger.
@Mystik I looked and it appears that it stopped being red when the rock dude first got struck by the girder.
Mystik, the room stopped being red when Ariara put a girder through his gut. I figure that the red glow may have just been a temporary side effect of his transformation. That, or something he did for intimidation but lost focus when he was surprised and couldn't be bothered to put it up again.
