A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship. But it is not this day.
"Then Gandalf lit up his wand. Of course it was Gandalf; but just then they were too busy to ask how he got there. He took out his sword again, and again it flashed in the dark by itself. It burned with a rage that made it gleam if goblins were about; now it was bright as blue flame for delight in the killing of the great lord of the cave. It made no trouble whatever of cutting through the goblin-chains and setting all the prisoners free as quickly as possible. This sword’s name was Glamdring the Foe-hammer, if you remember. The goblins just called it Beater, and hated it worse than Biter if possible. Orcrist, too, had been saved; for Gandalf had brought it along as well, snatching it from one of the terrified guards. Gandalf thought of most things; and though he could not do everything, he could do a great deal for friends in a tight corner."
Hawkeye #2, Matt Fraction and David Aja. The best.
This reminds me of the time a stranger leaned in close to me and cryptically asked, “Are YOU an Adventurer?”, and something almost exactly like this popped into my head. I whispered back, “YES. Yes, I am.”, and he winked and walked away. It gave me the greatest thrill.
He was probably a nutter, but whatever.
Finally got my Doctor Who/Star Trek: The Next Generation trade in the mail. Apparently Amazon thinks the box is a TARDIS.
