Comic #1749

1 Me: Douglas Adams famously used the device of revealing ahead of time that a dangerous plot event would turn out to be harmless.
2 Me: The humorous justification was explicitly stated: that he wanted to reduce levels of uncertainty and stress in the audience.
3 Me: My approach is different. I've revealed that a popular major character will soon suffer a terrible fate and die horribly, never to return.
4 Me: The goal here is to draw out the agony and make you all suffer.

2018-06-27 Rerun commentary: Of course for those who persisted as far as book three of the trilogy of four five six, said plot event was of course revealed to be only mostly harmless.
