    I think that last comment by Ed is one of the best I’ve seen yet. I loves it. XD

  2. TekServer says:

  3. Silver says:

    The pen is mightier than the sword!

  4. Richard says:

    “Ed is being a little scared of sharp things” – I love it!

  5. Josh says:

    Love the pun… Which artist friend has no experience with blades, Ed or Ursula?

  6. the unclean one says:

    5000 internets to whoever draws an epic group shot of Digger, Ed (with magic sword), surka , Grim eyes etc in the style of high fantasy (think D&D)

    For a Campaign this awesome it need some fanart

  7. SirEel says:

    I think Ed could be perfectly handy with any number of blunt instruments… although if you gave him a staff he’d probably remind me of a certain other anthro character…

  8. Phyrbyrd says:

    Ten to one it’s painbrushes. Ed’s logic, and that of the seer, is impeccable.

  9. Wilde says:

    better yet, Ed wielding paintbrush held on high a la Frank Frazetta …omg bad, bad, bad …

  10. the unclean one says:

    Ed, level 15 (4e)

  11. Entropomancer says:

    Don’t you dare soil Ed’s existence with fourth edition. Haha. He is FAR too respectable (though lovably dopey) for that.

  12. wombat32 says:

    to SirEel… would that be a buck-and-a-quarter quarterstaff?

  13. JewelWolf says:

    First, Digger arrives and despises magic in any and all ways. Now she’s asking if a magic sword could save her friend. She’s gonna have some stories to tell when she gets home.

  14. Otookee says:

    Jewel, I don’t think that’s what she’s saying. She’s being sarcastic about the “I suppose you’ve got a magic sword for him?”, because she’s feeling grumpy about being forced into a position of Epic Destiny (and about being unable to convince Ed to stay out of danger).

  15. Hunter says:

    No, it could be a giant paintbrush like in Okami! A magic paintbrush that he can fight with!

  16. abb3w says:

    Huh. That might explain Narsil.

  17. Marrock says:

    I’ll bet you real money that Ed winds up saving the day for them all.

  18. Kelardry says:

    I was going to try to comment first. oh well. ed is soooo cute! I need to start an I <3 Ed & Shadowchild club.

  19. CJ says:

    When you’re off to commit deicide, somehow I don’t think a sword, magic or otherwise, is likely to help.
    I’m also amused/comforted by the fact that spellcheck does not recognize the word deicide.

  20. Ed & Shadowchild Club says:

    Oh no you don’t! I already made it with a bunch of other peoples! you can be a member if you want. so far im the only member

  21. itsasafi says:

    loving digger’s body language ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. WorkingVolition says:

    I’m down with the E&S Club idea. Where do I sign up?

  23. Terry says:

    CJ – Your spell-check is a militant atheist it seems. You cannot kill what doesn’t exist.

    And yes, Ed’s line about sharp things is right up there with:

    “….Ed is DEFINITELY needing tea.”

  24. Hawk says:

    A painting kit of some type would seem to make sense; although clearly Ed already has his hands (paws?) on a painting kit, because didn’t Ganesh-statue mention that Ed had been gracing members of the temple with paintings?

    I’m curious to know just what *is* under that cloth…

    By the by, painters know plenty about sharp things, if they have ever had to cut their own canvas or mat their own work. Mat knives *are* scary!!

  25. kest says:

    hawk- somehow i don’t think that mats are involved in Ed’s presentation

  26. JewelWolf says:

    Wait a second. I seriously doubt that there’s painting equipment under all that. I mean, we’re labeling him as a painter, and nothing else. Really, I can’t think of anything else it could possibly be, but I don’t see how paints could be useful when killing a god.

  27. Rowan says:

    I loved that the seer/priest realizes that magic doesn’t automatically make everything better. Plus it’s the nature of magic swords (and let’s face it, most magical items) to be a greater danger to the wielder than their foe.

    Though at this point, I’m starting to yell at them in my head “Jhalm’s coming, stop yakking and get a move on!”

  28. Sylph says:

    What’s an internet? As in:”5000 internets to whoever draws an epic group shot of Digger, Ed (with magic sword), surka , Grim eyes etc in the style of high fantasy (think D&D) ”
    Because I would totally do that!! Too much fun!

  29. Shrikefox says:

    Or it could be something completely unlikely like, oh say, a femur or hey how about a flute? Hooray for concealing rags and rampant speculation!

  30. Lucius Appaloosius says:

    How about a rolled-up copy of “The Skeptic”?
    Ideal for smacking down pesky gods……. 7@=Q

  31. Mark Antony says:

    It’s one of Coyote’s teeth! Oh, wait, wrong comic… =)

    I still think it’s brushes, especially since the seer said that she doubted Ed had any prowess with a blade, which implies the gift is something he does have skill with. On the other hand, that’s never stopped me from making wild mass guesses. Maybe it’s a torch?

  32. Dusty668 says:

    Bet it’s bagpipes!

  33. Murasaki says:

    It totally figures I get current right before the major climax. Gah.!!!!!
    *is now going to wait for thursday.*

  34. Lissy says:

    @abb3w: No, Narsil doesn’t count. Most swords probably wouldn’t fare well if a god stepped on it.

    Ed is really adorable, however, the line that keeps popping into my head now is, “skin painter’s teeth blunt, but sharp enough for this.”

  35. Roose Hurro says:

    Ed is scared ofโ€ฆ what?!

  36. Tindi says:

    I think I still like the tea line better, but the sharp things line goes on my list of Really Good Lines. I’d link you, but you’d end up back here. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  37. AlpineBob says:

    It’s a magic crowbar! No, wait, thats still metal. Maybe a stick? It seems to have a long thin shape – enough so that Digger could reasonably guess it was a sword – which I don’t believe a paintbrush would have (unless it is a long, thin paintbrush).

  38. CasCat says:

    I know! I know! It’s herbs and spices! (For eating He-Is’ liver, doncha know….) Thousand-year-old liver is likely to need some seasoning to make it palatable… {grin}

  39. Lachesis says:

    ….we have a winner!

    CasCat wins the internets

  40. 84 says:

    it kind of looks like a bone of some sort…maybe something from she is fiercer?

  41. matt d says:

    Matt is being a fan of Ed.

  42. Marilyse says:

    Oh, I love that last line of Ed’s… Hmm, I think the secret weapon looks like some kind of staff, or maybe a golf club? Maybe the secret to the whole puzzle is to take out Tiger Woods?

  43. Ellie says:

    Okay, I NEED digger T-shirts! My fondest wish is to get one of Shadowchild looking all gleeful and exclaiming “I ate a sock!”

  44. BunnyRock says:

    I hate to burst everyone bubble, but am I the only one who rather than finding that line humorous and cute and enduring, instead got hit by a bumper size helping of full on unadulterated high-octane nightmare fuel?
    “Ed is being a little scared of sharp things?” Need I remind everyone that this is not someone whose experiences of violence are as the person dishing it out. That line made me slam shut my new(ish) laptop and practice some calming breathing exercises until I got the metal image of Blood-Eyes drunk and holding a knife or a broken bottle out of my mind. I also find it telling we can’t see Ed’s expression during that shot. Struth! There’s a mental image that will haunt me ’till the grave.
