  1. Leela says:

    Five bucks says the Shadowchild will misinterpret “mercy killing”.

  2. Haven says:

    This is going to go horribly wrong, isn’t it?

    …Hey, now that I think about it, Murai probably should have brought one of those demon-killing swords the Veiled are supposed to have.

  3. Lanthir says:

    Holy crap, there’s a town named for the Buddhist concept of cyclic existence? This fills me with great joy!

  4. danielle says:

    This journey hints at the wizard of oz

  5. djkibykat says:

    Kinda reminds me of The Journey To The West….Though way better metaphors than DB and DBZ.

  6. Jon says:

    Ten bucks says Shadowchild asks “What’s mercy?”

    Twenty says “What’s a mercy killing?”

  7. Mad Scientist says:

    Thirty on “Am I a mercy killing?”

  8. bA nAn A says:

    Nobody’s hinted on the “and he might just be your patriarchal god, btw.”

  9. Stig says:

    “Does the Dead God talk?”

  10. Sammi says:

    Murai’s not supposed to have sharp objects, remember?

    Digger should have brought the sword. Not that she needs it to be any more bad-ass.

  11. Mark Antony says:

    Digger wouldn’t use it. Carbon steel pattern-welded over a soft, low-carbon core beats magic any day.

  12. BunnyRock says:

    Hell yeah Mark Antony.

  13. Xyon says:

    I wonder how many shadows there are on that dead god’s heart?

  14. Lica says:

    @djkibykat: well, that’s because DB is not metaphor of anything, it was just partially and loosely based on the Journey to the West. DBZ didn’t have anything to do with it. But that is neither here nor there.

    @Xyon: Probably not as many as there are in his liver…

  15. Kemonojin says:

    …wherever that might be. 😛

  16. Typo: “withe” in the first balloon.

  17. JET73L says:

    Hmm, interesting that the servants cause the dead god’s heart to beat instead of finding some way to keep its liver both metaphorically and literally intact.
