I confess. I nerded out a little writing the dialogue for today's comic. Maybe more than a little.
I've been a fan of the fantasy genre for a long time, and there's just something about the word "dragon" that boils the blood of any longtime fantasy fan.
So when I was writing the dialogue for today's comic, and I came to the moment where a character that 1) has been around for a long time and 2) I have a great fondness for is about to be empowered by the "heart of a dragon," I surprised myself with a moment of self-geekery.
I know it may seem cliche, but I'd be willing to bet that any fantasy fan is still affected by the very idea of a dragon; whether it's empowered by them, allied with them, slaying them, descended from them, or riding one into battle. Dragons are the backbone of the fantasy genre, in my opinion.
That's all from me for now.
Rock on and geek out.
