The Leaps of Faith are probably gonna get a little messy, too.
So, two announcements! First, the Kickstarter for the new Legendary Showdown, which I was hired to do the artwork for, is wrapping up in eight days! It’s just shy of its funding goal, so get your pledges in!
Second, on Friday I will be opening sales on the pallet of CAD 1.0 Book Sets that I sent to Australia. This will be the one, final chance for Australian and New Zealander readers to snag a copy at a reasonable shipping price. There are only 126 sets on the pallet, and while I certainly don’t expect them to sell in a day, bear in mind that this is it. If you miss out, you’d have to have one shipped from the US, which is laughably expensive.
The price will be $120US delivered to Australia, and $140US delivered to New Zealand.
Maybe they plan to time it after the pyramids are no longer smooth?
But that would make the Leap of Faith even messier. ?
One word… Sandboarding!
I am suddenly reminded of shieldboarding from LOZ.
I am somewhat interested in weapon design. I liked exotic khopesh forms of swords. Since we are talking about ancient assassins, they will probably miss fingers?
On unrelated note, Tim, I liked your ‘Gamer Glossary’ strips. Will there be more of them, with the way gaming slang becomes richer with new terms?
Tim, I’ve been a long time fan of your work for many years but after today I will no longer be reading CAD nor supporting you in any other way. I come here to enjoy video game related comics not to have right-wing politics shoved down my throat. As you well know ancient Egypt was strongly involved in the slave trade and it’s artisocracy practiced what amounts to little more than a death cult. Reading this comic I have no choice but to recognise that you are a racist who would casually sacrifice the ‘lesser races’ to the sun god… Read more »
Not sure if this is irony….
If not so….wtf, dude. Seriously.
Why do some people not seem to understand that Tim’s comics like this one are only his humorous interpretation of (gaming) news? I mean….Egypt *ponder* Pyramids! *scribble*
It’s a joke based on the comment section from the last comic.
Tim as always, great work.
He’s definitely poking fun at the people who took yesterday’s comic way too seriously. Check out the comments there, it’s a real rollercoaster.
I surely hope so :’D
Yesterday’s comic (Monday’s comic to be precise) was the reason for my reaction…*sadly shaking my head*
Poe’s Law is terrifying.
I had to look that up. Totally agree. Sort of a guarantee that people will come out swinging from every side if anything with a political cant has a comments section.
It will be funny to have this as punchline comment for every strip.
I lol’d. 😀
Thanks… that made me smile…
Didnt pyramids look like a ladder?
Depends on the pyramid / culture. Afaik the Egyptian pyramids are pretty “smooth”.
The Aztec pyramids are stepped, as well as the ziggurats found in the present Iran (former Babyloian empire)
Egyptian pyramids *were* smooth, four thousand years ago. Nowadays, they look like stairs..
So they should be smooth in the game =P
As per the law of Oakram’s laser, yes.
Smooth. Unlike the aztecs who used pyramids as an overwhelmingly large mic/astronomy observatory, the Pyramids of Egypt were meant to establish a tomb and also the dominance of the Pharaoh on the kingdom, though later pharaohs were put into grandiose yet underground tombs as to prevent looters from defacing the king, which the Ancient Egyptians obviously saw as sacrilege. Though it may be that the smoothness of pyramids were an attempt to prevent people from doing such a thing, as seen here 😉
Thanks Tim. Your comic always presents a very appropriate, well reasoned, response to your subject matter, and seeing a new one up makes my day brighter.
That was warm and fuzzy. I was just gonna congratulate him on not being lame and unfunny, but yours is better.
Pyramids aren’t smooth at all, wtf?
Tim, please, google “pyramids close up”
Oooh boy, I’m going to enjoy this just a bit 🙂 FIRST of all… you are correct. The pyramids are not smooth. TODAY. But 4000 years ago, when they were built, and when the Assassin’s Creed game will most likely take place, the pyramids were covered in a bright limestone outer layer that was chiseled to a uniform angle and polished smooth. While this attractive outer layer (and the precious metal capstones) would later be plundered (partially to build medieval Cairo), some of it can actually still be seen at the very top of the Pyramid of Khafre. What we… Read more »
And now, an open letter to GENERICCOMICREADER
Saw the comic and had a laugh, was also imagining the leap of faith to be even more hilarious. Then read the comments and went back to read ‘some’ of the comments on the previous pane … Man … am I happy that I live outside of the US. Not because of my political believes disagree with the current man in charge (well … also, but that is irrelevant), but it saddens me to see how the political chasm between parties is growing to the point where humour is no lost. I always believed that all politicians are trying to… Read more »
Well up until they 2016 election politics were serious.
Then we got a pokemon as a president.
That said, as Lisa Simpson will as per the declaration of Matt Groening be our next president, it really will be a lateral move.
If you have made it this far…Congrats! You weren’t completely butt-hurt by the last comic and actually understood the joke Tim was making.
Thanks for the many years of laughs! Love all the work you do.
I’m honestly really disappointed with Origins…. they fucked up alot of the stuff from other AC’s
Man, Origins was a great game. Much better than Odyssey. I need to replay it some time…
