Damn, I had written this lenthy post but it got eaten by my Explorer.
To sum up; Love the new style, reminds me of some isometric adventure games I've played. In a good way. Stanley looks a bit wierd in the second panel, but the awsomeness of the rest made up for that. With a vengance. I love the dwagon-pillars. The new war-room beats the crap out of the last one.
Ok, so we can probably guess that whenever Maggie is very busy is when there's exitement on the frontline and Stanley wants to know what's going on. Which really should be all the time, since he doesn't really seem to have all that much to do apart from sulking.
