These are great! The capture the essence of a lot of things in game. I have a suggestion for a comic:

Picture a female Sith Inquisitor wearing a Slave Girl outfit (from Nar Shaddaah), looking very annoyed. A robe is draped somewhere in scene. Caption: "NOW can I wear pants?"

This is a reference to the Sith Inquisitor/Jedi Consular classes that have very few pant options.

Someone else in chat:"Maybe nobody liked Bob."
Me:"Hm. OK, that makes sense."

(I occasionally ponder how you could do a 'realistic' handling of aggro that was anything other than 'the entire damn area converges on your position as soon as the screams of the dying and your explosive ordnance echo through the compound'. No answers yet, but I suppose someone will solve it. )

Before someone starts going on about how it's all WoW's fault... I remember in EQ, after a bad fight that wasn't a wipe, we huddled in a corner healing and buffing and waiting for mana to regen, all the while staring at some mobs standing just across the room, staring at us, and we were wondering just how close we could get before they'd aggro...

lol, that's kinda what led to this comic. One way I could see this working is if the mobs are divided into sections, or fire teams, per area. That is, if you enter an area, intelligent mobs would sound an alarm and other defense points would go into battle stations. All the while, Alpha team would be dispatched to eliminate the threat. When(if) you die, you buff up and heal up in a safe area and make your way back.

It's a bit sketchy, I know, and needs work, but Hell, I don't play games for realism, I just make fun of it as a way to cope.

Love your work alot , They always me me laugh. Keep at it!
I also agree with the aggro thing, My trooper and Aric will be spraying bullets at a target, Whilst a big group of mobs are behind us like nothing happened.

'Slurps cup of coffee' "Nope"
