This comic could also be titled, “Algerbane VS the Meathead.” I had several versions of Borbanoth, from a barbarian to an orgish type character. In the end I picked an obnoxious warrior. I think it worked out quite well.
The question might arise of why did o’ Al need the sword if he just used magic to fry Borbanoth. That’s a good point. Stay tuned and you’ll find out (one day). For now, just enjoy the wizard’s antics, kay?
