    Awwwww…. that last panel makes my heart ache 🙁
    (Yay free archives!)

  2. Kari says:

    “Not everyone gets to go home” -that just hurts so much

  3. Pester says:

    Dammit Murai, I’m an architect, not a hero!

  4. Werrf says:

    I’ve got to admit, I’m torn – while I really want to see Digger go home, I don’t want to see all her friends here lose her. What would Shadowchild do without her moral guidance? What would Ed do without someone to feed warrior tea to and tell stories to?

  5. Cro says:

    Adventures always sound fun till you realize sometimes not everyone makes it home….
    This is by far the most wonderful amazing comic I have ever read!

  6. CovenantFan says:

    Too personal. Too painful…not everyone gets to go home…

  7. helusanation says:

    Hah! Adventures always sound fun until you figure out your in one….

  8. Lee says:

    And sometimes even the ones who get to go home find that home isn’t home any more. This, I think, may be what’s happening to Digger, though she hasn’t realized it yet. Her experiences have changed her enough that the warren may not be the comfortable refuge she’s imagining.

  9. Nivm says:

    I sincerely doubt that. Digger’s effect on her environment has been significantly greater than the environment’s effect on her. So far she has been rather solid in all of her opinions and beliefs. As she should be, being the core of sense in this word.

  10. million zillion says:

    That sounds like some awful, awful foreshadowing…
    (That’s not an informed spoiler – I’m passing through for the first time.)

    Werff: If you re-read your questions, you may find that they answer each other. At least, that would be nice, wouldn’t it?

  11. Well, she could always go home NEXT year, when the the trader comes through agian. Right?…

  12. (hugging myself because I want to hug Digger and can’t…)

  13. Emily says:

    I hate myself for this, but I always find that I never want the hero to go home, because they would have to leave all their friends… perhaps I value friendship a bit too much, but that’s how I feel.

    Curse you, Pester! You beat me to it!

  15. JET73L says:

    Spellwing: Maybe, but she had said how a week became a month, and a month became two, and eventually Ganesh (or whomever) would find a way to excuse her sayin there fore a year, and two years, and eventually her whole life. Trader Manuel also doesn’t seem the type to extend an offer over an over. Him accepting Digger seemed conditonal on her being there in six weeks, not a year and six weeks (as a way to test if she can follow instructions), and that was after Digger appeared to have nearly tapped out the amount of reasons and cajoling that she could produce.

  16. Zelith says:

    Digger might find home a bit… odd now. Not too much because of changes in her, as Nivm said she’s been pretty consistant, but think of this. Most people have a good reason to stay where they are, but there’s two who don’t. Both of then would stir home up pretty good I think.

    The less likley to go is Ed. He’s sort of got a reason to stay, keeping an eye on the Tribe and a few specific people. If he’s stayed that close for 17 years he’s not likley to pick up and move. But he dosn’t have strong reasons to stay, and his cave can he his legacy with or without him in it. He’d be an odd and exotic flavor to the warren.

    The more likley and more worrying one is Shadowchild. It almost seems impossible to keep it from following you, and you’d be taking it to a place rather completly devoid of magic/holy swords. Shadowchild is so far past ‘odd’ and ‘exotic’ we probably need new words to make it fit in a wombaty context.

    And on a almost unrelated note, due to a run it with some deep southern accented characters in another comic at the moment Shadowchild reads like Honeychild… almost exactly like it’s used in Kick Ass come to think of it. I hope this phase passes…

  17. Silver Guardian says:

    @Spellwing: If memory serves, Manuel said the journey to the wombat warren would take a year; that, and the fact that he wasn’t going in that direction yet, suggests that he has a very specific route to follow, and that it takes two years (if not longer) to complete a single circuit of said route.

    I could be wrong, though; it depends on how accurately I’m remembering it.

  18. Khyrin says:

    Reading again, years later…

    Everyone goes home, Digger. Maybe not alive, but you always find a home at the end.

    In Soviet Russia, home gets YOU.😎
