  1. NigaiAmai Yume says:

    Well, yes, a god[dess] is going with them. But I doubt SHE’D be overly helpful, in the “keeping them safe” sense.

  2. Saphroneth says:

    PLEASE, spoilers! Don’t do them!

  3. NigaiAmai Yume says:

    Ah, that’s not a spoiler. That’s evil foreshadowing. ^_~ And a conclusion someone that’s been paying attention thus far can have already made…

  4. J says:

    Just don’t do it, please. It really is ruining it for some of us.

  5. Chelsea says:

    Seriously. Lay off.

  6. Eugene says:

    Wait a second, how can you even tell that’s a spoiler? From my perspective, I was just assuming [etc] Yume was talking about Ganesh, but all the “ack spoilers” talk now has me suspicious that that’s not the case..

    Really, all you guys are doing is making it worse, yeah? :p

  7. zenbullet says:

    That was a total spoiler.

  8. fishboy says:

    Another vote against the spoilers please. I’m loving the comments on the whole but the occasional hinting (and, rarer, the clangers..) to future events is really bad form. Remember that people will be discovering this for a LONG time to come – let us enjoy it the way it was intended.

  9. jaynee says:

    Hear Hera, fishboy. (unintentional misspelling pun, left in as a larf)

  10. Fixer-Wolfie says:

    The way I see it is this- To those that have greater foresight, it isn’t much of a spoiler, but to those that don’t over-analyze the nuances of every comic, their assumptions should remain unsullied by hints at future explanations. However, I must admit it is tempting ta make such comments, but such discussion would be easier in a Digger forum and the thread title could warn off those that don’t want to read spoilers. On the other hand, it will be a long time until your comments on Yume’s are actually read by that person, SO, please keep comments related to the comic and don’t add to the already adequate anti-spoiler replies, insights on the current or past comics are FAR more interesting reading.

  11. Octane says:

    I admit I don’t particularly know how, if you make your own luck, you can also hope for it.

  12. Trogdog says:

    the first time I read through it, I completely ignored the comments, I was too busy hitting the next button. 🙂
    but yeah, spoilers suck.

  13. Murasaki says:

    I love how Ganesh says “at least one of the gods”
    …that can be taken as, you get a god, at least,
    or you get, at least one, god.
    One god min,…what is max?

    And No spoilers, please.

  14. JET73L says:

    Digger’s definitely getting bigger, and the hole has increased to retroactively accommodate her new always-had size. Possibly because a human wouldn’t be able to fit in the original hole (I was wondering how any acolyte would have been able, unless they squirmed in like a snake), and future plot relies on Digger’s new exploration assistant?

    Not a spoiler, this is my first time reading.

  15. Brian says:

    Yeah, spoilers suck! I mean, don’t give away cool stuff like how Ganesh is really Digger’s father. Or how Ed learns to create magic paintings to other worlds. Or worse, don’t describe the scene where three new shadow-children are born out of Murai’s skull! The readers want to find these things out on their own!

  16. waytoomanyusernames says:

    Another vote against spoilers, please. This is my second read through, but I still find them immensely annoying. If you have to spoiler stuff, take it to the TVTropes forums, or somewhere like that, PLEASE

  17. Ellemerr says:

    I fail to see the spoiler. As in, I don’t see how anyone reading the comic for the first time can get some insight into what’s to come by reading that comment. If it was my first time I’d just go “wuh?”, shrug my shoulders and read on, confident that one day I would also know the secrets. As I have read it already, I go “wuh?”, sit down to think hard about it and eventually decides that I have to read on again to fully remember the secrets, if they deserve that name. But that might just be a case of faulty memory. >.>

    Anyway, I’d like to know just what is going through the minds of those who consider the comment a spoiler to be hated? I’m not trying to judge or anything, I’m just curious, because my mind doesn’t work that way, and minds intrigue me.

    I am with the folks against spoilers, though; so far as spoilers are concrete facts about what’s to come. I’ve got nothing against oracular sluggy leaf-readings (e.g. “Bones of the Sea”).
