    I am really curious about page 14:

    ...it is a warning to me in this one.
    Especially when the ones killing me show such an... affinity for it.

    What does Mortred mean? How could she kill people who would kill Oracle in other timelines?

      Well, the blade could very well be a dimension-jumper. I'm more surprised that she abandons the Veil so easily. Her own Oracles... I wonder if there's a connection.

      Also, he totally looks like a blue Martian Manhunter.
      Heroes this user should seriously reconsider ever picking again.

        The Oracle wants Mortred to kill those people in his own timeline so his deaths he sees in the other timelines don't happen in his own.

          which created the paradox... He hired Mortred to kill himself.

            Mortred is not hired, the Veiled Oracle sent her to kill him, he just saw it coming, as he is also an oracle.

              Considering the extent of her organisation's anonymity, simply knowing her name's going to be enough to give her pause.

                So, i guess the sword Oracle gives to Mortred at the end of the comic will be her Arcana? She did won the compendium vote if i recall correctly.

                      No, I'm sure there's plenty of non-Mortred assassins wanting to kill the Oracle.

                        Is the comic incomplete?

                        Phantom Assassin actually looked cute in that last panel.

                          So that sword was actually the Arcana, uh. Pretty interesting side lore, all things considered. Wouldn't mind to see some more comics (even short ones) taking place in Dota world.
