This Comic's Cast:

So, as we can see, the two parts of DSWC are now crossing over, in real time (Richter leaves Heroes 536 and immediately shows up in Villains 536). That's the whole plan for this story -- everything is going on at once, and stuff will cross back and forth all the time (something I couldn't do as easily with the previous chapters of the two comics).

I also like the fact that the comic is "Villains" and yet, ostensibly, the people showing up are "Heroes". Richter may be evil, and Hanz may have been a villain for a spell in the last arc, but they're both "heroes" in the conception of the comic.

Oh what a tangle I've made of this.

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.
