You know what's kind of weird about The Hobbit? The Necromancer Gandalf mentions doesn't seem to have a name. In a world so richly designed, it seems odd that one guy only has a title.
The book is almost always better than the movie. You could have no better case in point than FROM HELL, Alan Moore's best graphic novel to date, brilliantly illustrated by Eddie Campbell. It's hard to describe just how much better the book is. It's like, "If the movie was an episode of Battlestar Galactica with a guest appearance by the Smurfs and everyone spoke Dutch, the graphic novel is Citizen Kane with added sex scenes and music by your favourite ten bands and everyone in the world you ever hated dies at the end." That's how much better it is. - Warren Ellis.

Nobody ever told Picard that "Ye cannae change the laws of Physics!". They just DID it. - Vampiress Kat.

What brought that up? Anyway, I think it was revealed in one of the books that the Necromancer was actually Sauron attempting to return to power, before he returned to Mordor and incarnated into the eye form.
MARTIN: What?
DANIEL: Okay. One, that's Star Trek; and two, it's ridiculous.
MARTIN: What's wrong with it?
CARTER: "The singularity is about to explode?"
MARTIN: Yes.
CARTER: Everything about that statement is wrong.
DANIEL: How exactly is having weapons at maximum going to help the situation?
MARTIN: The audience isn't going to know the difference. They love: "weapons at maximum."
MITCHELL: Never underestimate your audience. They're generally sensitive, intelligent people who respond positively to quality entertainment.
TEAL’C: I do not understand why everything in this script must inevitably explode.
MARTIN: Look, you guys may all know how things really work out there in the galaxy, but I know the film business. Explosions make great trailers. Simple fact. More explosions, better trailer. Better trailer, more viewers.

Yeah, its covered in The Lord of the Rings' Appendix B (2941, Third Age.) Probably elsewhere in that book or its appendices too.

Gandalf also mentions it at Elrond's council, as I recall.

Hee, I've always preferred those to the "trans-infinity" style, and that's a good "cutout style" one :J

Speaking of which, what's your avatar supposed to be? I can't make head or tail of it.

It's a tiny little stereogram of the 'let your eyes drift apart' (parallel?) style.

I can usually see these things... but on this one I can't. Maybe it's harder on the computer screen? I'm used to looking at them in books.

And thanks for the e-hug! Totally approprate! :D

I think it's just too small. Can't get the repeating pattern to match up, because my eyes go right over it whenever I relax them...

I showed this comic to some of my players, telling them that it seemed familiar, but I just couldn't place it.... They laughed. :P (I have a tendency to go into exposition mode.....)

CLEAR!

*thump*

I considered cutting it down to panels 2-4 but then I remembered that I'm really lazy and just went with the whole comic.

Yea, sorry for the thread necromancy, but, really, where else am I to put this.

Besides, as the old, gentle saying goes "IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO POST IN AN EXISTING THREAD THAN TO CREATE A NEW ONE" *cough*
