Today’s Comic:  “Third Time is the Charm”

About this comic

You all know by now that I am incredibly excited about a new Diablo game. I have really fond memories of the first two games, and a third is just what the doctor ordered. It’s also a nice excuse for a comic.

Oh, and I taped its creation.

    Most excellent. Diablo smoking a pipe cracks me up. 😀

  2. I can’t wait for the new diablo. 🙂 Too bad my computer as-of-now probably can’t handle it. :/

    Is it wrong for me to see a little bit of Scott in Diablo’s face within this comic??

    DAMNIT Scott…I just KNEW you were the Lord of Terror!

    Shame I killed you a few years back, oh yeah, and then you took over my physical body… yada yada yada. 🙂

    Too bad that the old Diablo crew doesn’t work for Blizzard anymore, which gives me a lot of doubt about these news.
    Flagship Studios should be the rightful owner of the Diablo license imo. I really hope that they don’t screw this one up.

  9. GoofyMonkey says:

    Isn’t Blizzard Canadian?

  10. Valek says:


    anyone got a dalorian??(i probably butchered that spelling)

  11. Bithan says:

    I personally like the pink smoking jacket he is wearing. It shows he does have a sensitive side to him that was not seen in the video game. 🙂

    Great work Scott!

      Too many copntimemls too little space, thanks!

      I don\’t think that going hostile would be nacrsseey with the PvP arena especially with custom games available for those looking for an unranked environment. The only appeal that I can see for wanting to go hostile in the regular game environment would be to grief players or to abuse the local wildlife which has nothing to do with how good your character is built. I want to open my games up to the public to play cooperatively with anyone that may join without having to worry about jerks.

    It’s the reading glasses and the My Extra(?) newspaper he’s reading. He’s 11 years older now; old age setting in.

      IMHO there is good reason for htolise option. The most obvious one: people don’t like when their freedom of choice is taken away. I if want to sit next to a town’s exit trying to abuse everyone with fireballs,please let me do it.This makes gaming experience more non-linear,even thought less comfortable,but more fun (It is a game remember?) And what if I think I am uber leet and I can handle 5 people at once? can Arena give me that ? A simple button from the times of D2 sure can

  13. Eric says:

    And the pinky. Can’t forget the pinky.

      Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any weitdgs I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

    It’s just what the WITCH DOCTOR ordered! OH!

    I think you could read two levels of humor into this. First is the Diablo reference, but then you could say the second is Blizzard selling their souls a third time after creating WoW and StarCraft2. =) Just a geek’s view.

  16. mercator says:

    I hope it doesn’t suck. I know (or at least hope) my current PC isn’t powerful enough to run it, so that the graphics are on par with other products in 2010 or 2011, whenever it is coming out.

    I should crank up my D2 cds sometime. A blast from the past.

  17. Dan says:

    My excitement was some what tempered by the realization that another 3-4 years of waiting are there for us.

  18. Makes me think of Batman.

  19. JDW says:


    Did you by any chance get to play Hellgate:london? Flagship lost the rights to make anything Diablo related.

    God I think I’m going to go put my copy in the microwave and set it and forget it.
