Sooo good to see a new LD strip!
Loved it, of course! Steve's wickedly smug/ominous expressions at the "stop giving him ideas" comments were classic and, IMO, Annick's artwork is really starting to shine in this one... her best work on this strip,yet! Kudos!
Heh, you gotta give it to Amy in this one. I would of never thought of letting the fire naturally "thaw" the PC's in the room, I would of been to afraid of them just going straight to burning. Also, I feel sorry for the players, Steve is a relentless DM when it comes to causing misery!

Actually, she's relying on past experience - anytime the Ice Haunt froze one of the other party members, he thawed within a few minutes on his own (as the magic wore off). She's betting that will hold true here, as well.
I don't believe I've seen Amy so fetchingly depicted as she was in that fifth panel! Whoah!
(Edit: on further inspection, I meant to say ROWR!!)
The characterizations are coming along nicely, especially Brad in panel 2 and Jim and Rich in the last panel. Steve's extra-spiky hair just makes him look more manic than usual, heightens the tension in the strip.

Hey, glad you like our stuff, Mysterion! The Boss' real life is hampering new updates, but as we say here at the Inn, real life comes first. Patience will be rewarded, young padawan--of that you can be sure!
Give Old Wizard a look-see, too. It's good stuff!
Oh! I would feel remiss if I did not take a moment and echo t_catt11's suggestion to vote the comic up at reddit. Making an account is free and takes but a minute or two.
