I think the needle on the irony meter just broke.

@DarkwingDork:

I was thinking much the same thing.

@GabrielsThoughts: You do realize dragons are living weapons right? They can breathe fire, lighting, or ice depending on the species. Their scales can usually defend against the strongest steal. Not to mention they are gifted with the power of flight so they are great with aerial attacks. magics and enchanted weapons are usually the best bet when fighting a dragon. because normal weapons and yes that includes non enchanted bullets would not have an effect on their tough hides.

@Will: Dragons are awesome but an arrow in an eye or worse both eyes can take one down. Check out The Dragon and the George!
hehehe Fire at Will!!

Quite true Arc, the eyes of a dragon are their greatest weak point as well as the insides of their mouths, take the movie dragon heart for example, better yet Reign of Fire.

Okay Gabe, now I'm just confused. Who's shooting lasers? Why are you calling the cat people "Demonic"? What indications are there are balloons and steampunk technology, as I apparently missed them?

As for why Ginger is the only one with a gun...the only answer I got for that one is that either the other characters seem to have some sort of preference for old fashion methods and the utility and reliablity of magic, or it's just one of those distinctions the readers aren't supposed to think too hard about, commonly refered to as "Refrigerator Logic".

@GabrielsThoughts:I haven't seen any laser weapons in the comic yet so I don't know where you are getting the lasers from. But if you have ever played the War hammer 40K games they mix both the medieval with future tech. Yes, bows and arrows might be a bit out matched when someone is holding a gun. But a bow is a perfect weapon for black ops type attacks since an arrow usually doesn't make too much noise. And yes a silenced pistol or sniper rifle can do the same thing, but sometimes it's a matter of personal preference.

I believe Gabe is referring to little Emily's comment in strip 56 of this arc that she'll shoot lasers out of her fingers.

Gabe, Emily is a five year old girl. I doubt she actually has the power to shoot lasers from her fingers.

As for the the differing degrees of technology, it's down to being Schizo Tech world. People on Gygax prefer older weapons. Ginger likes to carry a gun. There's nothing deeper than that.

Ginger is also the only Hybrid that dresses in more modern-style clothing. Maybe she's actually been to other planets before and that's where she picked up the gun as well? And what about little Emily and her awareness of lasers? Maybe they know of them, but, in their world, it's still a distant thing or maybe they're a village of Amish people and don't want to embrace technology? Or maybe it was just some silly little out-of-place quip. We might never know and I don't think it matters.

It's been established that these lizard-like mooks, as well as their leader, aren't very bright from the first time we ever see them; Ally simply told the mooks at a camp that they're on their way to surrender to their leader and they bought it.

Also, the author states in the FAQ on the About page that this comic is supposed to be silly to a degree and read like an '80s Saturday Morning cartoon. Don't take it too seriously.

@GabrielsThoughts:

Wait, didn't you say not too long ago that to compare this comic to a Funimation Saturday morning cartoon was an insult to Funimation? Now you feel there's a similarity and that's apparently all right? Am I missing something?

Yes, Gabe meant it as an insult, obviously. Though, Funimation is mostly anime, isn't it? I was thinking more like Ninja Turtles.

@GabrielsThoughts: Look, Gabriel, I have read the whole thing, the comic and your comments, and I am honestly confused with where you are coming from with your conclusions on the comic. I am not trying to refute or argue anything you are saying at this point. I am honestly just trying to understand you, as you and I are apparently not seeing the same things, and I sincerely want to understand how you are coming to some of your conclusions that lead to your criticisms, as no matter what way I look at it I just can't figure out how it is you're seeing what it is you're seeing. Is that too much to ask? Can I humbly, honestly, ask you to enlighten me?
