Part of diplomacy is knowing how to pick your battles.
As usual, bonus update tomorrow.
meanwhile in burkland...
Yeah, so what has Burk been up to?
"Weak looking girl"
Right Pablo, because you are soo strong. :P
That face in the last panel though. Almost better than sound effects. Almost.
What's up with the panel effect in panel 8?
Transition in time and place.
On the face of it, weakGirl has been curbstomped every time we see her, including being outstealthed by a certain diplomat in a bright pink costume as she was entering the castle. Pablo on the other hand has successfully, if briefly, held-off several bandits.
On the other hand, WeakGirl picked a fight with Burk, got exactly what she wanted out of it, and kept her pants, which sounds like a win to me. So by defeating Burk she has become the strongest character in the whole comic!
I miss toby, faceless dude, and doll torsos!
panel 4 reminds me of Carrot Fantasy!
