Maybe some of the people you interact with are "author in disguise", for lack of a better term -- not so much free, independent actors, but NPC's doing what the author wants, for you to be the protagonist of your own story with?

Yup, looks like the same basic ideas.

So is that why you have so many authors?

....What?

Can you kill a comic character if they are an idea because you can't kill an idea?
I think therefor I am.

Ideas can be killed. Who gave you the silly idea that they can't?

And more importantly, and idea can very easily be changed. For instance, from the idea of a living person to the idea of a dead person.

“You can kill a man but you can't kill an idea.”
by Meg Whitman

“You can kill a thousand; you can bring an end to life; you cannot kill an idea" by Shimon Peres

Plus can you kill something abstract. Something that doesn't exist. Something that is subject to your whims that when you say die it asks how and when you ask it to be alive it stands on its grave.

Look at Eddy, he gets chopped like wood, and what does he say "Tis, but a minor flesh wound.". Not really but the quote from the holy grail seemed fitting.

Sure you can kill an idea, it's just hard to do. You make it forgotten. But like I said, it's much easier to change an idea.

If you forget an Idea isn't it similar to to hibernation than dead? If completely forgotten don't idea come back generations later only considered new ideas? As to change an idea sure a man can be thought dead but dead leads to zombie.

The Editor did not just shrug off that wound. And anyway, he's a Muse, not an ordinary webcomic character.

Isn't a muse an idea. I would like you to tell me though how what Eddy got from the axe wasn't a fatal wound.

Actually, normal means can explain that... people in the "real world" has survived worse, and the Editors alien biology obviously prevented the wound from cauing instant dead, though eventually it would probably have killed him if it wasn't because he was spirited away and managed to get Mindmistress to give him healing help.

So, the question "CAN the Editor, as a Muse, be killed?" is still open...

An interesting question.

Doing a search on google for "Muse" turns up some interesting answers
"So my Mom left me a huge heap of molding, rotten, decaying, puss-dripping zombies ... How cool is that?"

"So what is your advice to me?"
"Stop doing stupid crap."

Good point Hogan.I had forgotten about that. Keybounce did you find anything new or interesting about muse that would be relevant besides the muses having anything to do with fate? If Eddy is invincible and he finds out will it go to his head? Oh, pride before the fall.

Searching for "muse" on Google shows that search is still not a solved problem.

Give it a try, tell me if you find anything.


Had to remove Keybounce's post, it was out of synch with the entire Dragonboard :|

I;m not getting involved in this again as I don;t have the time, but I'll answer one question

It's where you and others, work together to write and draw a comic, usually with a general starting point, theme, and/or end-point. They can be done together in pieces, kinda out of order, and pieced together later... or done sequentially. Both use the basic practice of drawing something that comes after what the person before you did... and in some cases, to match up with what comes after yours.

I happen to have a link to the compilation of the socalled Manor Jam that ran on the Comic Genesis forums a good number of years ago... if one want to see how it all took place back then, one have to dig up the ancient threads there...
