Reminds of things that happened in WoW, our Priest (healer) couldn't cure this really annoying, long lasting debuff in the dungeon Stratholme, so that was his advice to us. "Go die, then I'll resurrect you. Cures everything!"
I went and got the PDF versions of the 8 books and the little book of extras, and the book of extras has a decoder device in it. Are there any codes in the comic? I haven't noticed any myself, but I have read through the whole thing only once at high sped, and more eyes might catch that.
