#228 – “The Other Westfall Stew”

Because we all know that the ingredients of the real deal puts the ew in stew.

So my computer’s back up and running; I was actually hoping to have this ready by sunday already – I had a new AC adapter in time for it, but I just couldn’t get the words together; they were just spinning around my head. So, it took until now. On a plus note, it hopefully means this and the two pages immediately following will all flow together a bit better, since I ended up extending my ideas to encompass all three.

    Well, it is quite unsafe to eat something made by someone who served your enemy. But who cares?

    Seems that Tiny just can’t trust murlocs…

    is cookie showing them the back way out? I think he is

    Cookie looks so wonderfully adorable in panel 3, petting the cat as the “guests” eat. Amusing change of pace.

    Eeep! :X

    I see one of three things happening here:
    1) Cookie really just wants to cook for the crew, and doesn’t want them to leave so he can cook for them.
    2) Cookie wants for make Areen his bride; very possibly give her the powers of Aquaman.
    3) Cookie wants to cook a Gnoducken.
    I’m hoping for #1, so they can take him with them and hook him up with the Darkmoon Faire.

    Also, wb Nhani. :D And thank you for panel 1. <3 Slit skirts in Cata, plz, Blizz!

    Areen is SO going down the cooking pot.

    Nyeh, still dont trust him, Daggoth is going to rear his ugly head soon enough, mark my words….

    Areen and Te’len are likely the first people to actually be nice to that lovable overgrown tadpole. For all we know it might actually be happy to be free of the defias.

    THAT, or the ‘make Areen his bride’ thing.

    Remember there is a back door out.

    That’s what Cookie is most likely going to show them.

    That or cooking the Gnome.

    Either or I’m ok with both.

    Random comment..

    I really appreciate all the hard work and though that is put into this comic. Its been a great read so far. I would say it out does Flintlocke vs. The Horde.

      It’s always flattering to be held up next to the big, heavy names (not to mention above them!); I’m well aware my own fanbase (as such) isn’t nearly as numerous, not to mention there being several differences by design that throw a fair amount of people off.

      Still, it’s a good sign it’s finding a target audience ;)

    It’s interesting that on this page, Hani’s sword is leaning against the crate, but also seems to still be stuck up on the upper level where it lodged during the fight.

      Unless, I suppose, VanCleef pulled her sword out back on page 222, and that metal-looking object on the beam is just the cut left behind from the blade. It’s kind of hard to tell.

        It’s her sword he picks up (since his fell over the edge); you can even sort of see the blade part of it laying next to him in #223. The implication is that enough time passed between #227 and #228 for them to retrieve that along with Areen’s shield.

        So the light spot is just the cut – it actually ended up brighter than I expected, but that’s it. I actually took quite a bit of care in making sure there was a cut there at the time, just to give a sense of just how much force had gone into that strike.

          Well, even though I misinterpreted it for the last six pages, I appreciate that level of attention to detail and continuity. :)

    Aww, Cookie’s actually cute isn’t he? He wants to be a friend, the poor little sap. Can’t blame him, though, since they can all turn him into fish food if he starts attacking them.

    On another note…Areen and Cookie sitting in a tree…


    Sorry, just had to.

    Great the next time we know is an “Random” gnome in an wedding dress next to Cookie in an thoughts for Food. Also Gorvar I was actually hopping that there will be no Rule 34 let say I saw one for card capture Sakura and I have never been able to watch that series again. And I don´t whant this to be [word] to.

    LolDrood: whats an Gnoducken?

    I know where Cookie’s leading them, and I have a comment, but I’ll save it for when they get there.

    A fish that keeps a cat as a pet. I’ve always found it hilarious. Albeit in this case, it’s…so dang cute that I can’t help but love it. <3

    Its good to have you back. I only discovered this comic a little bit ago, so I’m glad you came back. So many comicers do not.

    I keep up with about 50 or so webcomics currently, including ones like Looking For Group, Dominic Deegan,Twisted Kaiju Theater,and El Goonish Shive. This is one of my favorites so far. Keep up the excellent work.

    Cutest murloc ever!

    And it seems he understands common, since it seems likely he understood Tiny. Maybe spending all that time with those defias taught him the language. Obviously not so he can speak it though. Darned murloc vocal cords.

    But this means…

    Murloc butler?

    Okay, two things:

    First of all, Westfall Stew is made of murloc eyes! IT KILLED ITS OWN KIN! O.O

    Secondly, it’s kidnapping Areen!

    I’m with Rei on this – it can’t be trusted! ;P
