This Comic's Cast:

Technically, Alucard is correct. The situation is not ironic because they are both talking about time and in a place of time -- that's just a situation coincidence that can be laid out to humorous effect.

Were they quickly running out of time with an entire clock tower still to scale, that would be irony. All the time in front of them (clock tower) but none to spare.

Read a book, Link. Jeez.
 
    

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.
