I'm sorry man, but this is typical comic book stuff. There's always conversations in a fight.
I make no qualms about hiding that every now and then I like to slip a self-indulgence into the story. The "Kaila" character as you call her is more or less an inside joke that is a reward for some of my closest fans.
It's hard, given the limited number of panels I have, to move a story along without having multiple things happen at once. I would hope, for instance in the case where the dragon is breathing fire while talking, that the reader would understand that perhaps she said it, then did it.
Other stuff can just be chalked up to the fact that I'm new at this. It's a learning experience for me, and I hope my storytelling skills improve with time.

Next strip should arrive sometime today and will hopefully be posted by tomorrow. This marks the final week of this storyline. Starting next week, the comic will update on a regular schedule at the same time on Tuesday and Thursday.

Apologies for not posting this sooner. Sorry there were no updates last week. My artist is currently working on the next two strips and we plan to post both of them this week.
The next story arc is already completed and ready to go once this one finishes, so I can guarentee a couple months of uninterrupted story. I promise. (unless of course the Smack Jeeves server dies or the world comes to an end or whatever)

Okay, new strip is up! Joy!
Note to readers: after this week, I'm going to go in and rearrange the order of the strips so that the most recent three filler strips will be placed after the "Tunnel Rumble" storyline, which was my original intent anyway. That way you can read all 16 strips in this arc without interruption.
