whenever I go to castles I'm always terrified of those spiral stairs. Steep, smooth, hard, and designed to be treacherous as a defensive mechanism. those suckers are deadly.
It may seem weird for George to try a fist fight, but without a sword he probably thought he stood a better chance depriving Drake of his weapon (which is lodged pretty solidly in the shield). his armor would protect him from most punches and if he had managed to connect with his punch the wight of all the armor on his arms would have made it a pretty solid hit. Pity he didn't count on Drake's claws or how close the stairs were.
Site update things: the links section has been updated with many lovely new comics to go see, the fanart section has two more pictures, and the characters section in extras page has redone profiles and two new profiles on BeauBeau and Brittany.
re Barnes:thanks ^_^
re Resounded: thanks ^_^
re Onasaki: his ass is pretty armored, so Drake will just scratch up his face instead.
re Cup0fDOOM: nope, for a warlord Henry is pretty economically focused.
re Miya:thanks ^_^
re tRickityHouses: yup, sadly too slow.
re StellaFrost: I guess metaphors don't earn sainthood anymore either. might also be some political stuff going on too since George is England's patron saint and England and the Vatican aren't exactly buddies after the whole Church of England thing. Not sure about that, eh.
re Skittsue: I'm going with the "great minds think alike" defense ^_^
re Azhtann: first he wants to maul George's face a bit
When I first loaded the page the thing that stood out to me was George's eyes in the second panel, and for a moment I was all "Go Drake go! Finished the evil guy in 2 (or was it 3?) pages!" And then I realized that would make no literary sense, and that George was still alive in the next panel. XD
I love George's face in the second panel. ABSOLUTLY PRICELESS!!! xD It's the best Huh Wahhhhhhhuuu?????? Face I've seen in ages. And Drake's face makes it look like he's saying some cheesey combat pun in his head like " Would you like a side of Bitch-slap with that can of whoop ass?" xD
