This is the issue with setting up a random scene in the very early goings of a comic that ends up going 300 strips -- a random scene for a one-off joke that I hadn't originally planned to make into a story -- and then making it into a story. The story is a bit interesting if you're at all curious about the history of the old man, but otherwise, it's just a silly trifle.

Not much to say about this comic specifically.
 
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
