I feel so refined - sipping port while compiling my LEGO webcomic.
The dwarves are here because of what Chazz did back in this strip. Advent Calendar 2008 - what a kooky time!
You can't really see it through the windows, but the backdrop for the interdimensional multiverse-space is this creative commons image. All rights reserved and all that.
Hmm they're getting done for something that didn't even get on-panel credit? And why are the Dwarves punishing the entire group for something only one of them did?
It kinda hints at it with the freeze-ray guy's declaration, but that'll get covered a bit more tomorrow. There are only so many panels (unless it's a very special anniversary).
And yeah, it was off-screen, but that was mostly due to the limitations of comicking with only what was given by the Advent 2008 calendars. There wasn't a lot of gore-ready pieces.
