This Comic's Cast:

I remember King's Quest had the rote "Witch with a Gingerbread House". That stuck with me, just because even as a kid I thought it was silly. Sure, the King's Quest games used a lot of literary sources for their flourishes in the series. It just seemed out of place.

Not as out of place as Batman in King's Quest II, sure. Still, it just seemed silly.
 
    

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.
