GG Crono says:

First comment again. I'm on a roll!

Anywho...looks like Sir Mark isn't the sharpest bulb in the drawer, if you get me. ;)

tilyene says:

*bonks head* sir mark is sooo dense. but i like the name. thats funny.

if mark isnt careful, then ayne is gonna smack him one. poor guy. i -almost- feel sorry for him

tilyene says:

ohyeah. side note.... ayne looks demonic in frame 4!

i_like_shiny_things says:

I don't get the riddermark joke. What *is* a riddermark? Anywho, uh...there's smoke rising behind the group in panel 3, perhaps from the dragons that Mark is *really* looking for?

flamesofgrowth says:

here's a question.......where is Feiht?

Feldar says:

Probably in the squire's bag looking for something especially shiny. *Shudders at the thought of a pixie with a weapon*

Viking says:

Actually, the swedish word for knight is riddare. If one would use it as a title, I think that Riddar Mark would work just fine. Mark, in swedish, means ground, but it could also be translated as land I believe. Just some fun info.

MoF says:

Actually... "Ridder" is the Danish word for "knight", and "Mark" is (in Danish, again) either a name or the word for "field"...

The only place I can remember hearing the word "Riddermark" was in Lord of the Rings as they used it to adress the Rohirim, so I think it may be a large group of knights... Is that true?

Otherwise, good comic. Love the details, specially the typhoon in the background. And Leaf and Myhrad look really helpless and innocent.

Mithandir says:

The scandies have it right. Riddermark is like a kingdom, but ran by knights. The best-known one in fanatsy literature is the Riddermark Rohan from lord of the rings.

Empress catriona of the Cat People says:

Can I give Feiht lots of sugar and see what happens?

I got the Riddermark joke, (insert LotR/Middle Earth freak look here). I wonder what dragon they're on about, because I bet there's another dragon that *isn't* Myhrad blocking a different pass- see smoke-cloud in frames 5 and 3... maybe a dragon just fried soemthing....

Empress catriona of the Cat People says:

Is that smoke or a tornado??

Tsurwen says:

Wow, Ayne looks real motherly/ protective in frame 5.

Still no Feiht *sigh* but on the upside a posiblity of more Dragons. Yeah!

i_like_shiny_things says:

Aha! I thought that "riddermark" *sounded* familiar, but I couldn't place where I knew it from. I haven't been able to see or read any LOTR stuff for a while. *sigh* Sadness.

DodgedBullet says:

This has been bugging me for a while, but could you please give Leaf some pants? It's gotta be cold down there.....

Ladyfox says:

No -Empress Catriona, You MAY NOT give Feiht sugar. You KNOW what happens when you give pixies or Sprites sugar... :))

Love the Protective stance in frame 5! (Go ahead Sir Mark- TRY and hurt her loved ones- You WILL regret it.)

Beacon says:

I don't think there was a dragon until Myhrad showed up. They probably just wanted to get rid of him, so they made up some suitably 'knightish' task to send him on.

Adae says:

Ridder Mark hee hee....

... says:

Just for the records, ridder is knight in Norwegian too. And Mark can mean both field and worm!
So Mark's father wanted to start a knight worm! :p

YukiNeko says:

so Ridder Mark is like a skin-deep knight. like he has everything that a knight should have from a distance (bearded flunkie, olde worlde speech, shinee sword) but on the inside isn't the real thing...?
but i may be digging too deep. i've only seen like three pages of him so far anyways.

Winter_Raven says:

Scandi-lands fo' LIFE! Doesn't it suck how all those ignorants out there say us Norwegians are from Norwegia?!?! That's always bugged me, I mean c'mon, Norwegians are from Norway. Everyone knows that.

Skarlog says:

I though Leaf was the older one! He looks so much like a child in this strip!

Lee says:

So Sir Mark is also a Knight-Ridder?

Lee says:

And Glaswegians are from Glasway???

Bubbles says:

catriona I think it's a tornado

Bubbles says:

What the heck's a Glaswegian?!

Tournesol says:

somebody from Glasgow's my guess

TheNextTaggerung says:

Sir Mark is not the brightest light on the Hannukah tree.

TheNextTaggerung says:

But he has good timing.
