I'm a pretty good writer, so I'll be glad to help Tom with any of the spelling and grammar whenever I can. 8)

Shouldn't that be "Healing wounds like these are beyond me."?

I believe "Healing wounds like these" acts as the subject, not the word "wounds." "Healing" isn't plural, so"is" is correct.

I'm sure somebody else can explain that better than I can, but I'm pretty certain that's correct.

You're absolutely correct - "healing" agrees with "is", so it's kosher.

Now, as to why we're debating a grammatical point that's 7 months dead, I've no idea.

Because it's fun? and if we get everyone on the same page, won't have to go over it again?

For the comic of Jan 20th, not sure if it has been noted in its comic thread before, but Natani's bandages are a bit strange. The front view shows her having one band going over het left shoulder, but the view from the back doesn't have anything coming from the left shoulder. Instead there, one band goes over the right shoulder (which doesn't match the front view again).

Good way of bringing us back to the main party, showing some of the damage, and still keeping it light ^^. Nice Tom.

Panel 1
It should be "What about me? Am I a prisoner here or something?"

Mabye...
Prisoner may be used as a verb in this situation, as to "being held against one's will"
If that's the case, then it may be fine as it is, though it might be changed to "Am I being held prisoner here or something?"
But again still not sure lol. If prisoner is a noun here then you're right with the correction :)

I don't know if anyone's noticed this, but:
This comic, last panel: "..wimper.." Should, once again, be "...whimper..." That's like... (looking at the archives here) -insert very high number here-th time that mistake has been made. Kinda funny actually.
