Yeah, the Ultima redemption storyline is probably my favorite ongoing story. Ultima has always been another favorite of mine and the fact that she has had to legitimately work hard to be accepted, and is making some progress in that regard, has been really enjoyable to watch. I'm curious to see what will happen with her in the future and whether she can stay on the path of righteousness.

I would also like to see Omen make a return; after PsiQueen came back and we lost Soulfighter he just kind of went off on his own. With Tiamat (?) having gained possession of the latter, I have some expectation that Omen will be around to help deal with that. The loss of his friend hit him hard and I cannot imagine he will stay under the radar when she makes an appearance as one of the heads of their latest enemy. Assuming, of course, that the comic really does continue where the last revival left off.

It'll always be the Jester War for me. It started with a bang, ended with a bang, and had everyone discussing time paradoxes 'til they were blue in the face.

Well, I see Ultima is still the queen of the exposed midriff.
Also, alternate reality for the win!
...oh, excuse me. Alternate "System". Gotta retrain my GG terminology.

In any event, here's for a nice long run.
If not to a conclusion, then at least to a dramatically appropriate cliffhanger.

New strategy: Read every page as if it were the last. Grow from there.

I think Greg's line in the last panel pretty much sums this strip up for me. "No surprises in this meeting."

Here's hoping the exposition is short and the action is forthcoming. I am currently ungrabbed.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that I'm fond of Jayce's art. Great use of simple lines to convey details. My only constructive bit would be that I wouldn't know Pandora had wings if I didn't already know that Pandora has wings.

Given the length of the hiatus and where we left off, having a few exposition strips isn't surprising either. However, given three strips ago we had Scarlet Jester revealed, there's momentum that can be built on. I did like the 5% gotcha line; one chance in a million happening 9 times out of 10 working in reverse for a change.

I agree that Jayce's art seems to fit the GGniverse quite nicely.

Exposition isn't surprising but I do agree with Wargolem - I'd prefer short exposition and some good meat to chew on immediately after. So far I do agree that the art suits the GG Universe and I'm thoroughly pleased that we get to see Ultima so early!

Do we have any idea what the update schedule is supposed to be? Once a week, hopefully, since it's been a week and it'll be nice to see things move forward.

I'm liking the art style too. Need more to see where the writing's going! :)

Weekly means we've got about 11 hours to go, yeah?

Update from Geg, he hasn't received today's comic so it's not updating yet.

Looks like we are still without a page. That's very unfortunate.

I am trying to avoid being overly negative because I really don't want to seem like I don't appreciate the restart,  but I would like to comment on how surprised I am that there wasn't a buffer created with there being a month or so between the comic announcement and the actual restart date.
