This Comic's Cast:

As should be obvious, the them of this little arc is the juxtaposition of the noir style narration with what's actually going on in the comic... which is often not at all the same thing.

That's where the humor is derived, in case you hadn't caught on yet.
 
    

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.
