Re: 1190: "Time"

For some reason I keep expecting a horde or knights or something to come riding at me from the gap in between the two castles I would love that. Personally, I'm hoping for some really unrelated hilarious ending. People have speculated repeatedly about raptors showing up and tearing everything apart...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Maybe this new image will quell the religious talk for a while? I'm hoping so. I've started missing the hopeful speculation.
Also, damn the fact that there's a major development right before I decide to go to sleep.

Re: 1190: "Time"

It still looks like there's over half the castle to pan over. If the comic continues on its current course it'll probably be panning all night.

I had been thinking of newpix as short for 'new picture'. I didn't think about pixels. With this revelation I now fully support newpix for both singular and plural.

Re: 1190: "Time"

Another update at 1:30am.
The comic went up at 1:00am (stupid DST), first update at 1:10am, second at 1:30am. I'm curious to see if there will be another at 2:00am.

EDIT: apparently I am mistaken. A new image every 30 minutes seems to be the pattern.
