Well that's that!
I wonder who these mysterious guests of the Judge are!
Ah, an end to the action conga line, very refreshing.
The laws of fictional tropes dictates that this guarantees she survived. "No body left behind surely means she perished." Yeah right.
Someone's losing their job.
Did they find any trace of the golden sword? If not, poor Ariara the golden may yet have a chance. Hope, hope.
As for Moe, there's no way they can come out of this without looking and indeed, being evil. Either they turn him loose to bedevil the World, or they go back on their word, becoming oathbreakers.
What's a little international incident between friends?
Causing international trouble? Pablo knows best.
Still rooting for Ariara :(
Might have perished to set her up as a pirate ghost.
Ghost or zombie. I would have preferred zombie, because they are smelly and squishy, and thus handicapped in fights, which makes them more interesting.
If she survived the blast it would have put her in the ocean most likely, considering she is now partly gold I doubt she can swim. She could still fly out with magic, assuming the blast didn't knock her unconscious.
In panel 4 (or 6, if you count the fade-in), doesn't the General's left eye (on the General's Left, our Right) seem to lack a pupil? It's kind of creeping me out.
