This Comic's Storylines:

This comic changed a fair bit from the original to the current copy. Most obviously is that the final panel is almost entirely changed.
Originally, the comic ended with an 8-bit Theater joke. I felt, going through a second time, that riffing on another comic (especially so early in the series) was entirely unecessary and didn't help to give the comic it's own feel.
So, instead, I changed it to Link. By this point in the CVRPG career, Link had become a larger part of the story anyway, so having him here felt fitting.
I like the other cameos in the bottom panel, like Richter and Cornell. TO note, they are so far outside of their own era in time it's not even funny. And yet they just keep crossing over into this series. I do have a bit of affection for the two of them.
Oh, and note: in the fourth panel, Alec has apparently disappeared. Ooops.
 
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
