OOh. Who…or what are these mysterious giants?
Are they friend or foe?
Rock Giants! Paddington’s peeps!
Paddington has friends…either they showed up in time to save the day…or they were asked to give Alex the bad news that his girl is now crispy fried. Or maybe to tell him which way to go. 😉
Oh wow! They’re like the Ents! …only with rock! 8D
Yeah but are they friendly after such a long time of isolation?
well, one of them looks rather a lot like paddington, so either he survived the dragonfire, or its a relative of his. I vote for friendlies, perhaps they’ve decided to stop being neutrals.
could be Paddingtons Dad/Mom/Brother/Sister you know how hard it is to tell what a Rock Giant’s Gender is…..
I’m absolutely loving the perspective!!! The way the morning light shines through is simply stunning.
These guys are definitely friends. They’re “Paddington’s peeps” as LuzurWulf put it.
They looook sooo shinnney…makes you want to polish them
Just found the script on Facebook, i mostly read this on my lunchbreak at work..no facebook there. Pretty good and im so glad theyre still going to be brothers
Well, the whole “twin” thing is pretty integral to the story, so I imagine that would have to be left in …
The rock giants!! They look so awesome!
its daylight, nicodeamous is not around, and paddington’s buddies are waiting for him.
So far, a very good sign.
Friend? Foe? They’re probably a big chunk of Scott’s 2010 budget either way. XP
Wow these guys look fun!!
I read through the script the other day, I reckon it’s really good!
I’m really excited to see where the series is going.
o-o in my mind right about now a series of explictives would be going through my head xD
what a sight to wake up to. 😀
that’s THE opportunity to get a permanent kink in the neck. 😉
hope the rock giants are careful where they’re stepping… 😛
what a sight to fall asleep to actually xD
They have Paddington eyes, so I’d trust them. Plus, one has a smile like Paddington’s too. (see how discerning I am? lol, jk).
I totally agree to your analysis =) With the bright smile of the foremost rock giant, they can’t be evil~! I want to meet them now =3
I wouldn’t use smiles to judge whether they are evil or good. After all, not only do evil villains get all the best lines, they generally have an excellent dental plan for their minions.
smiles reveal the heart of a person. I’ve yet to hear of a bad guy with a real smile. You know, the bright, bubbly, cheery smile that brings light to everyone’s faces *smiles*
IT’S LIKE SKITTLES!!
Another thing I just noticed. How much Alex has to crane his neck to look up at them. If they are as big as i think they are, Paddington is still a little kid in comparison.
Alex is still crawling so they look taller. Also the slender ones look taller than the more round one that seems around Paddington’s height.
I think that there is a time problem here.
How much time have passed since Alex’s wake up and chatting with Dan?
I thought that Dreamland time pass slower than “normal” time, but here we can see that it is now daytime.
As mentioned yesterday in my discussion of P.L.O.T. particles and quantum effects, time passage in Dreamland is neither slower nor faster than time passage in The Waking World; it seems to speed up and slow down somewhat randomly (which, I think, is pretty realistic; I’ve had dreams that lasted all night but only covered 5 minutes of “dream time”, and other dreams where I seemed to be spending weeks in the dream, only to wake up 5 minutes after I fell asleep).
Yes. The way that I calculate the time passed (it’s very scientific, you know) is X times Y plus R minus the subparticle standard of P.
In layman’s terms…
It’s whatever I need it to be to further the plot.
That sounds like a variation on Roger Rabbit’s ability to get out of handcuffs: “I can only do it when it’s funny!”
Uh-oh…no sword on ye ol’ Alex’s back.
I think Alex is in twubble…
It should be on the ground off to his right where Nicodemus dropped it. Even without it, if they turn out to be unfriendly he can take quite a pounding in his armor.
I know, but it’s still funny.
Don’t think the rock giants would pound on Paddington’s pal, though.
Just off panel, Nicodemus being held by the scruff of the neck and writhing around like an angry kitty.
Ha! That’s a great mental image!
(And it sounds like a great suggestion for fan-art and/or a non-canon vote incentive!)
You know…that WOULD be cool!
Rock Giant: “And I will hug him and squeeze him and call him George.”
Nicodemus: “Unhand me!!!”
Alex: “Well…this is strangely ironic.”
Why are there purple spots on the foot of the rock giant’s foot that Alex is reaching for in panel 1?
Leafy shadows … err shadowy leafs … errr … you get what I mean.
Nice!!!! I bet they play a mean game of 10 pins!!
Makes me think “Hooom Hommm. Do not be so hasty, little human”
The second one from the right. Is he a bit blackened (toasted maybe) from his neck down?
My reaction at that time would be: “Ummm….hi?”
The one in the middle looks like a rock ent.
I am guessing Paddington’s Family
I love the variations between individual rock giants (like ents, as several people have mentioned). I was hoping we’d get to meet these folks soon!
Don’t forget to VOTE, everyone! http://topwebcomics.com/vote/4274/default.aspx
Thank you all!
I didn’t want to put ROCK GIANTS on the blog. And spoil it for anyone.
So glad you guys are so quick.
Oh. My. Squash.
well it looks like Nic has left the scene and Naj left a welcoming party for Alex when her returned…. We know Paddington is one tough Rock Giant soa whole crew I think Nic would think three or five times harder about messing about with Alex until Alex is ready to bring his army to fight Nic. I did remember a few pages back that Alex needed a army to fight Nic and not do the John Wayne/Clint Eastwood thing and fight Nic and his hordes or Nightmare realm baddies. So maybe Paddington sent word for the Rock Ent’s to stop by and speak with Alex on his return in hopes of getting them to join up.
‘ahem’ Relatives of Paddington, I presume… XD
“Something is about to happen, which has not happened, in an age. The Eants are going to war. And I fear we go to our doom. For this is the last march of the Eants.”
aw! thats one of the bestest lines in the whole movie!
brilliant and also very, very, very… and i say… VERY BIG! and rocky…
Something about the one in the middle that made me immediately think of the tree people in LOTR. Is it the legs or the knees? Don’t know, but it was instantaneous.
Wow, that last shot is awesome! One of the best you have done. Bravo!
looks like a rock eater giants worst nightmare to me.
and one other thing.
are they Hard Rock Giants or Soft Rock Giants?
Maybe they’re Alternative Rock Giants …
I love the reflection in Alex’s Pauldrons, enough to see that there’s something big and ominous and totally sets up the main framed shot!
oooh..nice surprise! I guess we are gonna get the “Get the Rock-Giants to fight on our side” bit??? It seems like something “Ol Nic’ hasn’t calculated in his X times Y corrctly..he prolly forgot the substandard particle “H” (as in “Hubris”)
Hello Rock Giants! After hearing about what Paddington said about his family, I wondered where they were. Glad to meet you!
Awww! They look so cute! I want to hug them, despite that would be like hugging a boulder! 😀
It was very obvious that they are rock giants. It is also obvious that they are friendly. The only dreamlanders who HAVEN’T been friendly are the dwarves, and they came to their senses eventually.
My guess is that Nicodemus captured Nastajia.
That last panel hauntingly reminds me of when Sam Witwicky died and encountered the ancient primes within the matrix in “Revenge of the Fallen”. Epic win, dude.
(realized I’d posted this comment to the wrong part of the forum. lol. I’m such a goob).
Reminds me of the movie:
Never Ending Story
Yes. Rock Biter was one of my inspirations for Paddington.
That makes a lot of sense, now that you mention it.
And they Look friendly to me at least…
They’re TOTALLY evil baddies. Look at their beady little eyes, and their twisted grins . . .
Seriously though, they do look like ents made out of rock xD
Wow! I finally made it through the whole archive and caught up. What a wonderful webcomic!!! Can’t wait to see what happens next.
Welcome, fellow Dreamer! Feel free to stick around and join in the discussions, or maybe dive back into the archive to see discussions on pages past …
And be sure to head over to TWC and show Scott your appreciation by VOTING! http://topwebcomics.com/vote/4274/default.aspx
Thanks, TekServer. I voted today–I’m pretty good about voting for my fave comics.
That last panel is gold
Everybody must get stone.
Scott, no more reading Road Dahle(sp?) before you start working on the comic… and 2 cookies for anyone who knows which book I’m talking about.
Hehe! Alex’s arms look skinny… I think it’s the shoulder pads. I love rock giants.
So Alex is grabbing the toe of the central rock giant in the first two panels?
The Brute Squad arrives.
Is he hallucinating? Or are those some more of Paddington’s friend’s?
