Got to the 5th panel and realize what was happening in the 3rd panel.
Sage you may have wanted to shift the center of 3rd panel slightly to the left of Kylin’s head so we could see the sword hilt in her hand. I believe it would have improved the flow of the page.
That defeats the purpose of framing it to make it look like it came out of nowhere. That’s the reason the 4th panel is there and the shocked expression. All the hints are there- the colored light that always appears when bringing out or putting away an item, the sound effect, and the bloody sword in the 4th panel.
Don’t bring a gauntlet to a swordfight unless you’re absolutely sure you’re faster than your opponent…
Or if the gauntlet is called “Infinity Gauntlet”.
Or if you’re Ironman
No one yet, really? Okay, I’ll do it then: Guess he’s been disarmed!
I’ll see myself out now.
Disarm skill +1
Gotta hand you that one.
Oh hey, new toy for her. Or not, might be giving off a bit of a bad vibe.
Toy for Nyna more likely. After all she is the person who practices unarmed combat in her ‘party’. Also an apology for getting the ‘fun’ part. Though both so outclass these bandits that neither really had fun.
I don’t think that gauntlet counts as being unarmed, but yeah.
You could say it is unarmed once they pull the human hand out of it?
One armed bandit, soon to be headless, too.
Hmm.. having a plan would have been handy here.
She was so quick with her sword that he didn’t even notice it at first AND the momentum of his arm wasn’t affected.
“They say that magical swords hurt less than non-magical ones, as the edge is lot sharper with enhancement”.
Not exact quote word to word from “Goblins – The Webcomic”, but gives a good idea. If she has super-sharp blade of level “leave it sharp point against wood and it cuts its way down”, one could EASILY disarm themselves.
It has the same metre as “Falcon PUNCH!” but it just doesn’t have the same ring to it…
I’m not sure, but panel two makes it looks a little bit like her head popped off of her body…Also, if that’s her ear in the top right corner, it’s colored like her hair.
Otherwise, loving the surprise there. Don’t bring a gauntlet to an “elven witch” fight. 😉
Nope, look closely, her ear is over his left elbow. What you’re looking at is her hair as she’s just landing from a high jump
Oh, hey, it is. Wowzer. Good eye. 🙂
What an idiot, gauntlets are a defensive/counterattack weapon. Should’ve tried to counter her blade then strike, not one punch man her. XD
Guess the group will have to go by the name “Blood Stump” Bandits?
Ah, a classic disarming moment.
to quote bender from futurerama ” you sir are boned.”
K-“now stand aside unworthy adversary”
B-“tis but a scratch”
K-“a scratch!? your arms off!”
Too bad all his underlings are dead. He could really use a hand about now…
Let’s just give him a slow clap while we’re at it.
He deserves a high-five.
I would think his stump would be gushing. Spurting, at least.
I chose to keep the gore back a bit, mostly for what comes next.
This will make it easier for him to practice meditation – he can spend hours imagining the sound of one hand clapping. If he had any more hours.
‘Tis but a scratch
I’ve had worse
