Yeah.... Well. I'm glad Alzaer'bith survived so far, crazy as that may be. :) She's been getting the greasy end of the stick for all her life, even if she didn't realize it.

And Arachne.... is reaping the rewards of her villainous monologuing and awakening evil in Dewcup. :-/

I hadn't realized how much I wanted her gone until I saw this strip.

I didn't have any active desire to see Arachne's demise, but it also does not affect me emotionally.
At times, she was very useful to the plot and the people around her. But she was malicious, manipulative and cruel, and I won't miss her if this turns out to be her end. :-/

I wouldn't classify Arachne as a villain per say. Bad guy? In so far as being somewhat sadistic anti-Hero Drow, maybe. She was a character that I loved to hate, because she was always on the border line of Hero (remember all those early adventures) and typical evil Drow (dungeon of slave girls, including Clover). I'm gonna miss her.

On a slightly less analytical note, anyone else get chills at the last two panels? I mean seriously Rich, wtf? :? Dats creepy.

Not sure how I feel about it. Arachne has become such a fixture in the comic that losing her seems strange. On the other hand, she was a pretty terrible person. Yet still on the other hand, sometimes she did some pretty heroic things, even if she had her own mostly selfish reasons.

Then, too, I wonder if she is really going to stay dead anyway, especially given the afterlife is directly involved in the current plot.

I will miss Arachne, yes she was a horrible person who did horrible things but she was also one of the few competent characters. With her loss it becomes more likely that we lose even more characters we love just because there's less to protect them.

I am glad that Alzaer'bith is still around, I do enjoy her weird mix of stupid but also casual understanding of evil. And so far my theory on how the Ranna situation will be dealt with is on track.

Rich--be careful !

First Class villains make or break a story.

Before you kill her off, be very, very sure.

Arachne isn't a villain. Just a nasty person, who occasionally tries to play a Magnificent Bastard. And she wouldn't have much of that if the rest of the cast didn't specialize in Comedic Incompetence.
