Currently playing (in my head): Down with Ulfric, the killer of kings! / On the day of your death we will drink and we'll sing / We're the true sons of Skyrim, and we fight all our lives / And when Sovngarde beckons, every one of us dies

Daai goed wat daar staan in die laaste paneel is nie net krabbels nie. Die taal is 'n mengsel van allerhande Wes-Europese en Middellandse See tale ('n poging tot 'n moderne taal wat van Sanskrit afstam), en die skryfstelsel is iets tussen Cyrillies en Katakana (met lyne soos in Devanagari), en lyk ook per ongeluk effens op die Rune-alfabet.

Ja ek is trots daarop, jammer ...


That stuff there in the third panel isn't just a bunch of scribbles. The language is a mixture of all kinds of West European and Mediterranean languages (an attempt at a modern language that is descended from Sanskrit), and the writing system is something between Cyrillic and Katakana (with lines like in Devanagari), and also looks a bit like the Runic script by accident.

Yes I'm proud of it, sorry ...


TRANSLATION

PANEL 1:
Jane: Now then! Let's go catch us a few Om-Ankh! / What do you say, friend Louwrens?
Louwrens: Where you lead, I'll follow, o fearless leader! / (thinks) And now, how now? How do I get out of this mess? What more can go wrong?!

Well, ideally he would have confessed in the last comic, or just after. After all, he's just saved her life- an action that tells her he's basically a decent person. No better time, really, especially since he now knows she suspected him. If he doesn't 'fess up now, she's not going to believe that he's not an agent who was just using their partnership to keep tabs on the government's efforts to find him and his spy buddies. You know, when she inevitably finds out that he really is an Om Ankh. ;)

P.S. nice bug-bot!

Die vlieg in die salf is ... die letterlike weergawe van 'n 'spy drone'! Ek hou ook baie van die gepixeleerde beeld op die monitor in die laaste raampie. Nou trek die skaal weer min of meer gelyk ... of dalk juis nie. Ek sien uit na volgende week se aflewering.

@HNTh: Dankie! Daar is wel 'n verrassing wat wag ... nye he he he he XD

@Ravenstar: Well, he ... um, no hold on, I'm not telling yet ... don't try to trick me :P

Oooh... so he IS just using their partnership to spy on the government's efforts to catch him. Ok, carry on then! ;)

Very interesting developments Just that. Very interesting developments lately. Quite sinister, the whole spy-versus-spy thing. Will be following them closely. The bumblebee's semi-transparent eyes are well executed. Shows that it's not a normal insect (apart from the codes) The bee itself is also at a dramatic angle. Did you catch one to study it? As to the codes - intriguing script! Worked out in detail and real-life functionality! Wow.

@Eye_Contact: Thanks C:

As for the bug, I did that in the laziest way possible: used an image from Wikipedia :P
