I just started reading this comic the other day. IMO the undead guy is funny.

Richard's awesome, and there are all sorts of pop culture references that are parodied in the comic.

I think the Sword of Truth references are still my favorite.

"Did I mention I'm petitioning to have its name changed to 'the really angry sword?' "

Richard rocks.

I thought these summaries were amusing. (Spoilers, of course.)

Ook, that is billiant (and a great way to review sadly.)  Thank you for that.

Damn. I should have just read these instead of listening to the audio books.

Oh, I don't know.  There's something to be said for listening the audiobooks.  Such as knowing how to pronounce all of those names.

My husband is currently listening to the audiobooks and he hates how they pronounce names, especially because they can be inconsistent.  I think no matter what the pronunciation guide says, you always make up ones that sound best to you.

It's a reference to the book summaries in the link I posted. People spend a lot of time glaring at each other.

Duh, smacks forehead. I did read those, even laughed at them.  I'm on cold medicine, so I claim induced slowness of thought.  Thanks Ookla

Wow. No sooner do I post a topic about LFG because I didn't see any titles referring to it, than I find a post about LFG...the first one I click! *facepalm*
