Don’t Even Blink
This comic will probably make the most sense to you if you are a mage, and/or if you have been a mage’s victim in this scenario. I have personally tallied my Blink kill count at probably four people. With Antigen it involved a rocket boots incident, with Itanya, we each headed the wrong way. With Thracks it was completely an accident, and with Ibra I swear I thought I saw Jasper Overload and was so excited I could break the chains.
“Rise up, mages, you have nothing to lose but your chains!” I cried and blinked away. Alas, it was Jade Overload and Ibra died almost instantly. I cauterized and kept on DPSing, secretly relieved to not have to chase a melee around the room any more.
I owe credit to Snack Road for use of the phrase “sad melee,” which indeed they must be, because no melee can be a mage, and that is a sad thing indeed.
(p.s. I did this comic on my own while Rades was out of town, the first time I’ve ever done a comic “by myself” but not really because we scripted it beforehand. Someday I will go out of town and make Rades draw the strip, too!)
Can’t say I’ve never done this! My poison is when I get hit by a Cobalt Mine. First thing I think is “snared, blink”. …Doesn’t work out as well for my buddy.
Awesome work Vid! Rades needs to watch out that he doesn’t become obsolete 😉
Vid. Vid, you see to go out of town so that Rades has to draw the strip. YOU HAVE TO.
…see? HAVE. WORDS ARE HARD.
This is one of my new favorites! Funny on several levels, and beautiful art as always.

MAGES, WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO ME
I AM TRYING TO KEEP YOU ALIVE
(Second place contender for Stupid Mage Tricks: hitting Alter Time to maximize the pew pew, then when it goes off and returns you to where you were, there’s now a mine or pool there. /sadtrombone)
Coincidentally, this puts Millya ahead of Varian and ties her for 4th place with Garrosh.
I SEE WHAT YOU DID HERE. 😀
Why I keep thinking this is a Doctor Who reference I will never know…
What? No weeping angels in the comments?
At first I thought that you meant not to blink. Not the mage spell, the other thing you do with your eye.
Don’t blink. Blink and you’re dead.
The only thing I thought when I read this title was this.
“Don’t blink. Not even for a second don’t blink. You blink and you’re dead; so don’t blink.” -The Doctor
If you don’t understand than you have yet to enjoy good television.
