1 Death of Insanely Overpowered Fireballs: Yes, sir.
1 Head Death: How'd it go?
2 Death of Insanely Overpowered Fireballs: They challenged me.
2 Head Death: Chess?
2 Death of Insanely Overpowered Fireballs: Poker. I got two pairs. Aces and Eights.
3 Head Death: As expected. So you hauled their sorry asses in?

Hmmm. After looking at this strip again, I've decided the Deaths only speak in ALL-CAPS when manifesting in front of mortals. There's no need to be impressive when discussing work with your peers.


2012-06-26 Rerun commentary: And so began a quirk of the Deaths that remained throughout the entire strip. I occasionally made mistakes with this rule in later strips, but I went back and fixed them to conform to the rule introduced here.

Things could have turned out completely differently if I'd fixed this strip instead.

This is the first appearance of the Infinite Featureless Plane of Death, although at this point it's the wooden top of my desk, not a large grey LEGO baseplate. I guess they got it redecorated somewhere along the way.

It's also demonstrably not infinite here - you can see a corner in the last panel!
