This comic picks up on an older one, so you should probably read that first.

Secret Greatfather Winter: for Disciplinary Action

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — tabulacandida @ 6:00 AM

A couple weeks ago, Azarizotza, artist of Torment of the Week, suggested a Secret Santa Greatfather Winter swap among WoW comic artists– everyone who goes in draws a special Winter’s Veil comic for another artist.  I was unsure whether I should participate at first.  I don’t have much artistic talent (which is why I fake it with graphics programs), and I didn’t know if I could live up to someone else’s sense of humor and style.  But I took the plunge, and I’m glad I did because I’ve had a lot of fun.

Lorgrokni’s Travels made a wonderful comic for AFR.  I keep going back to check it out again and it cracks me up every time.  Thank you, Lorgrokni!

My comic is for Disciplinary Action.  If you haven’t checked out Disciplinary Action, you should.  It’s both a blog full of terrific information for priests and a thoroughly enjoyable comic following the adventures of Liala, Blood Elf priest.  Enjoy!

Side notes to the author of Disciplinary Action: I’m just assuming here that Kachunk the orc is a warrior, but he sure looks like it.  I couldn’t find a good match for either character’s clothes in my limited repertoire, but I did my best.  I had a wonderful time reading back through your comics and coming up with this; I hope you enjoy it, too!  Merry Winter’s Veil!

AFR #110 – There’s no aggro like snow aggro

I remember when we had real snowballs, the kind that would knock you down and could be used to pull bosses.  Not like those cheap imitations we get these days.  And we had to walk up to Alterac Mountains to get them for ourselves, on our own two feet, with no flying mounts in Azeroth, and it was uphill both ways.  And we liked it!

Happy Winter’s Veil, everyone!

AFR #109 – Midnight

I wasn’t actually there at midnight on Tuesday.  I’ve grown too old to stay up all night playing WoW; I need my sleep.  (Plus, I was up early in the morning on Monday to make pizza for a departmental party, but that’s another story.)  So, I can’t speak from any experience about what it was like at 12:01 Tuesday morning, but I feel pretty sure that the population of Gilneas skyrocketed in those first few minutes.

I haven’t even started my worgen character yet.  I’ve been holding back to let the initial wave go by, but you can be sure that it won’t be long before another furry face joins the wolfpack roaming Azeroth.  (And no, I will not be naming my worgen any of the names shown in that last panel– although if there were such a thing as a bard class I would so have a worgen bard named Rolf.)
