Today's comic is another 'hay guyz, isn't this odd' one. Not funny.
Well yeah they are funny, but only if they occur sparingly. Right now it is just about every joke. Character dev followed by character-based humor would really alleviate Elflad of this overdependence.

Still, I found it slightly amusing.

Yeah, but it's also a look inside my psyche. C'mon, a guy works on something that he feels is special and is shot down by praise that he feels is inadequate?

Of course, the analogy falls apart a tad when you consider that the character invented something great and I can name maybe twenty of my comics that I think were good.

Legendary is about RPGs on the surface, but if you look deep enough, you'll discover some frightening subtext about the author's insecurities about himself and his work.

Of course, some are more obvious than others.

Hey, anybody notice that there's a clock in the background, and it says 5:15? ...Betcha any money when they come back to Algernon's house at night, it'll STILL be 5:15!

Um, that's a small world.
Known as "Legendary" in the OOTS Forums.

Now I will torment the other Legendary forever.
