I don't know what was funnier. The Assassins discussing how dumb the Templars are or Erin trying to hit her little visitor. Either way I actually laughed at this one. Which is rare, even when I do find something funny.

Dafttechno:
Ah, TV Tropes, where free time goes to die.

Okay, that made me laugh. Though it might have been a little easier than usual since I also laughed at the comic.

Considering the future Templars are both the complete personification of evil and have a complete understanding of the literary traps, I just thought of something...

WHAT IF ABSTERGO CREATED TV TROPES? Think about it.

HAHA! The look on his face... "Seriously?" LOL!

Wait. . . that means. . . D X

no they're winning because of this site

BrotherRool:
I'll be honest, I support the Templar. You know there's that codex where Altair comments on how the Assassins are a bunch of hypocrites going around stabbing people they don't like and breaking every rule they have, including the don't force dogmatic-freedom-destroying-RULES-enforced-on-the-point-of-a-blade on people one (Which is impressive) and he came to the conclusion that hey, he can do it because he looks cool and there's a one minute video of the villain kicking puppies before you actually stab him.

Well I agree with Altair. He's a douche.

Yeah i've been wanting to complain about that one for a long time. Sorry guys

I think it's more of a gray and gray thing. The only reason the Assassins look like the good guys is because each game is done from an Assassin's point of view. I'm sure that if there was a game where the protagonist was a Templar, the Assassins would have just as many crackpots as the Templars have. (If not more)

I see it like this, Templars want to create a better world by taking control of everything, and the Assassins want everyone to be free from all forms on control. However, both sides are extremists. The answer always lies in the middle path...

Anywho, tl;dr both sides want the same thing, they just go about it differently...but neither is right.

This is the one I disagree with see. The way I see it, (and I think it might mention it in the codex) the Assassins are control freaks in and outside their organisation and most of their activities involve restricting the freedom of others. (I mean death is the ultimate restriction in terms of actions in this life.) What's more by appointing themselves the judges of destiny, their ultimate aim involves removing the choice society has in the path it follows.

Is it bad that the fact it didn't say "mio amico" annoyed me enough to not read the rest of the comic? It would actually probably be "il mio amico".

Italian is starting to get to my head.

Alta´r's left hand ring finger is intact.

/nerd rage

Yes, because they're interchangeable. "Il mio amico" or "Amico mio."

"Mio Amico" would have been incorrect.

I suppose high school has taught me nothing. XD
(For the record, that wasn't a snide comment, I'm making fun of myself there.)

Ha Ha Ha!!! It's funny 'cus it's true...

dantoddd:
is she the artist in extra credits

No, Extra Credits is drawn by Allison Theus, Critical Miss is about Erin Stout.

Ha! Navi is still there. That is awesome. Thanks again for the laugh.

To answer point 4 on behalf of historians, it was traditional for a number of cultures that if a powerful/important person learnt of their potential asssassination, he would instruct his guards to capture him/her so that the assassin could be publicly executed for his/her crime as a deterrant to other assassins, and as a show of power.

The arrow is to symbolise "We know you are coming, and we are going to stop you." Notice how the archer didn't hit a critical area, despite having a very good shot on Ezio.

Just a little... thing there.

EDIT: Oh and if anyone cares... the song in the trailer is here

I really really hate to be "That Guy" but Jason Statham deserves to have his name spelt correctly...(there's no 'R' in his last name.

Was that trailer CG or Live Action? I honestly can't tell anymore :O

I love this story-arc but... I can't help but feel I'm missing a key piece. Hopefully thats the tone you guys have been shooting for, if not....
NEED MOR INFOZ PLOX!!!

Haha, the Navi is just hilarious. I'm still laughing about the last comic xD

hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha 'bump'

fell of me chair!

I'm being a nazi, but its mio amico, not amico mio
