A few hints and revelations…
Yet again, Mr. Reddick is messing with the viewer. THE SUSPENSE!
Great update, can’t wait to see what happens next!
Gina must be more than the irascible swordswinger she appears..
So…the plot thickens…..Where IS Princess Gia? And what is happening with Giles and Shiarra? And who will end up paying for the damage to the tavern?
Hang tight, Billbarians! Tune in next time…same Bill-Time…same Bill-channel!
*looks around for Gypsy*
One of our solid clues is that the guy in chains is a “wizard.” Which suggests very strongly that he was the original “Craven” that Gina hooked up with back when they were in the Dark Queen’s lair. A visit to the Archives is in order to read the nuance from that story arc, but he seemed a talented magic user (with a minor in fashion design).
The clean-shaven “Craven” is not necessarily a wizard … could be using magic via an item &/or as proxy from his “boss.” Whoever that may be. Again, I suggest Gork as a prime suspect.
The goatee’d “Craven” …. hmmmm … possibly a Knower of Things in disguise? On a mission for/with Shiarra from the beginning?
But which, indeed, is which?
Oh, GROAN. I can see another evildoer’s monologue coming on as inevitably as an Ice Age glacier coming down from the north.
(David and Don, PLEASE prove me wrong!)
Another monologue? That means that the end is nigh.
35. I will not grow a goatee. In the old days they made you look diabolic. Now they just make you look like a disaffected member of Generation X.
GOATEE! That means he’s from an alternate universe! So if Evil Craven……(now dubbed “Cravil” until David reveals his true name) is clean shaven then is facial hair Craven (now known as “Craven” until “Cravil’s” reveal) from the alternate universe and thus under the bidding of some one else? Perhaps a grown up gnome in disguise? ^_^
By the way: The first instance of Craven/Cravil/whoeverhereallyis was waaay back here: http://legendofbill.com/2009/11/16/meet-the-wizard-craven/ and is clean shaven. So maybe Craven grew the beard while in chains and Cravil has assumed his form in order to entire or earn the trust of Princess Gina (in the form of Vasheeva)
OR, given that this is being written by the author who came up with Redshirts the Card Game, the one in chains really IS the bad guy, as he has a goatee…
Just a thought…
35 (again). I will not grow a goatee. In the old days they made you look diabolic. Now they just make you look like a disaffected member of Generation X.
Oddly enough, I have both a moustache and a goatee, no beard. Not meaning this to be taken the wrong way, but that and my mood on the day combined made my Texas ID photo look like the mug shot of a terrorist waiting to happen.
Fortunately, I need to get it replaced this month anyway.
I have a full beard (contained and controlled) and enjoy ever minute I spend not shaving
In my DL I look like a tall leprechaun trying to find his lucky charms…. ^_^
Bad ID photos are very common. There must be a college course somewhere that teaches the photographers how to make them look like they do. Last years’ drivers license is the only ID photo that I didn’t dislike. By comparison, for my NMFS ID some years back, I had walked in the rain for some blocks (as had everyone else getting their ID that morning) and was still wet when they took the photo.
It’s not a college course, it is special government agent/law enforcement training that makes you look like either a criminal or a junkie on official ID.
They do that purposefully so that they have a photo to show on TV if someone ever “goes bad” also so that the “He was such a nice guy” picture has more meaning.
I’m automatically suspicious of anyone who looks good in their ID photos…it means something is seriously wrong.
Watching the old pilot movie for Battlestar Ponderosa, one actress has a “ski jump” nose. (And different colored eyes, one brown, one blue, which should indicate to some trivia buff of whom I’m speaking). Could this actress be the inspiration for the noses of Sarah the Saracen and the other women in the strip?
You never know where (or what) an artist can draw inspiration from. I know that David is a big fan of the older Hanna-Barbera cartoons (Flintstones, Jetsons, Scooby-Doo, Penelope Pitstop, and many, many others) as am I. Most of those cartoons have the wonderfully painted backgrounds (even if some of them are over-scrolled in walking animations – watch the Flintstones carefully, you’ll see what I’m talking about). I grew up watching H-B cartoons, and they’re an inspiration for my coloring and limited cartooning (more like doodling) as well.
Yep, the HB cartoons and loony tunes were the standard cartoons when I was a kid in the 1970s and 1980s. Cartoons that were funny to both adults and kids. I didn’t get most of the references when I was a kid, but I did later on. Things like Foghorn saying, “Make me look like Rock Hudson, Plymouth Rock Hudson, that is.” Or the import of some of the silly things said like Fred Flintstone’s “Scram, kid! Go play on the freeway!” Never heard of Penelope Pitstop. We kids would notice the many times that the Flintstones or other characters would run or drive past the same scenes again and again.
For the record, Penelope Pitstop first appeared in HB’s Wacky Races (quite popular for a short run in its day, right when I was growing up) and again in The Perils of Penelope Pitstop. Too bad this link doesn’t have a photo of her, but if uploads to YouTube are still present, you should be able to find her. I recommend you seek her out in the original cartoon.
