One of the more nuanced things I’ve found as I write more and more for Alex is that she actually has all the makings of a truly terrible person, and the brief bit of social manipulation shown here is a perfect example. At the same time, however, she really just wants to have fun with her friends, and is therefore only dangerous if you’re standing near something flammable or which won’t bear her weight.

    Dalokohs Bar!!

  • ocbrad1

    Nicely done!

  • Majinkoba

    Well good or bad he seems far more level headed then the lot of them

    • Dart Devious

      How is that apple now?

      • LifeWulf

        Just give it time. All apples will rot with time. 😉

        • Unless it’s an artificial and inedible apple, which at this case, doesn’t even decompose.

          • LifeWulf

            That would only work within this context if the “boy” was an Android.

          • James-Polymer

            What a twist! O.O

  • cr1ms0n t1ger

    He opposed his father in front of the council. Huh. Maybe he is a good guy after all.

    But I’m more interested in these artifacts. Were they in the same place that was attacked (on the Akkai islands or, whatever)? Could that be where Sesame’s from?

    What if if it was the rebels were the ones that sent Sesame that letter http://uberquest.katbox.net/comic/43-anonymous-watcher/?

    Hmm :-). There are peaces of a puzzle here that are slowly coming into place, it seems.

  • And from this page onward, I am highly invested in Uberquest

  • James-Polymer

    Introducing the facefinger. For when a full facepalm would dignify someone’s failure too much.

    • Alex Smith

      Dont forget the prince-worthy nose wrinkle.

    • It’s actually a foreheadfinger, but whatever, he still looked pissed as f*vk!

      • James-Polymer

        Ah, but in an ordinary facepalm, where do the fingers go? 😉

  • Cory Tenorio

    Why do I get the feeling he’s gonna give his dad an ulser?

    • James-Polymer

      Based on the king’s appearance at his introduction, I’d say he already has.

    • Make that a double-ulcer, and a sore throat.

      • Cory Tenorio

        Followed by a stroke.

        • Plus being buried alive in a coma, during a solar eclipse on a leap year after a heart attack and being turned into a crystal.

          • Cory Tenorio

            okay now you’re going overboard.

          • And last but not least, being exposed to magical toxic witches and getting electrocuted by a red thunder cloud, getting blasted from an alien spaceship, giving government taxes and having another ulcer, before teleporting back to his throne room, with seemingly nothing happened. Then he should’ve at least attained enough ulcers to enter himself into mutant phase and growing into a large alien from God-knows-where, and then getting explosive diarrhea and re-birthing himself back into a king with a quadruple ulcer, twice the sore throat and in a coma.

    Alder, sounds a lot like us in the USA, but we’ll prevail somehow. Uberquest is such an intriguing story, maybe you’ll have it in print someday?

    • Phuufy

      We have plans and a company willing to print in the future. We will likely hold a kickstarter once we reach a certain amount of pages.

      • GG1

        Sounds great, I would look forward to getting a copy, by the way what kind of character are you Teh Phuufs?

  • GG1

    Not my tongue eh? I think Drayen just gave his 2 cents worth. Can’t wait to see what happens next.

  • Verager

    Well, whatever else he is, it seems Drayven is competent and reasonable. Skipping to slaughter is probably not a good start for problem solving.
    That he made this display in front of his father’s advisors and that it was dismissed so quickly tells me this has been going on a long time.
    Beyond being super grumpy, I’m still not certain how much the King deserves what Drayven’s serving, but I’ve got to say: bonus props if the prince was aware of the meeting, and scheduled his practice match specifically so that he’d be late, dressed improperly, as well as dirty and sweaty, when the king inevitably called him in.

    • Victor Masi

      so Drayven’s basically Tyrion in a wolf’s body…minus the whoring and drinking….speaking of which, anyone notice my profile pic?

      • Mafoc

        Second to last panel should be utmost* upmost is physical position.

      The prince got a point.

  • cr1ms0n t1ger

    First a war, now a rebellion. Whats next? Dragons? Vampires? Powerful dragon priest resurrections?

    • Victor Masi

      White Walkers.

      • cr1ms0n t1ger

        I was thinking more epic player houses, but sure. White Walker are good too.

        • That, or since Claire is from the future, I was hoping more of bad-aiming and totally scrap-metal quality robots.

          • cr1ms0n t1ger

            So, in other words, we’re looking at a nuclear holocaust, followed by mutants, radioactive zombie people and a group of tribal warriors in TOTALLY non-gay Roman man-skirt armor across the river?

          • I was thinking more of…
            SOUTH PARK

    Well, he’s a bastard father. Still wearing the undy-armor.

  • Shadowkey392

    Oooh, definitely got a Game Of Thrones feel to it now!

    • Victor Masi

      DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE DOOOOOOOOOOOOO, BA-DA DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE DOOOOOOOO, BA-DEE DOOOOOOOOO….

      • Shadowkey392

        Game of Thrones theme tune?

        • Victor Masi

          yes

          • Shadowkey392

            Nice rendition of it.

  • CinnamonSalve

    I want to see this turn oddly convenient for our rebellious prince…

    King: “Huh, for once the boy speaks more sense than my royal counsel.”

    …And all that rot.

  • Vulpine Warrior

    Everything about Alex is deeply troubling, Pete…

  • AustKyzor

    ….I still ship Alex and Jill. They’ll take over the world, or something…

  • Great Basin Coyote

    This is one of the topics that felt was lacking before the reboot; the deep history of the civilization. I’m interested in the presentation of history. Having lived overseas for one year and visited several museums with english-language exhibits with a vastly different perspective on historical events, I wonder what the perspective will be?

    And no visit to the water treatment plant?

    • You must go WAY back if you remember that. No, we left that out in the rewrite. Our World is now yet another comic that doesn’t show a visit to the water treatment plant.

  • Shadowkey392

    I cannot agree more.
