Well, he ran headlong into that one.
I can’t tell if he’s still smiling in the second to last panel.
The book looks like Cross-Reference, but it doesn’t have the octagram on the front…?
It is Cross Reference, minus the magic circle on the front. It could be a goof up on Deg’s part with the texture being wonky. Personally, I think it looks better this way.
Comes in handy sometimes.
Actually ERIC’s body, only briefly held onto by Max, before he got hijacked from it…
But actually, that’s an interesting point.
We all ASSUMED he had Max’s Speed when he dodged the way he did, but it does make more sense that it’s a zombie perk.
I think it’s like this:
Max, and to a lesser extent? Alister got some sort of special training. I think that training is basically how to wield purple mana without dying, basically, and it’s used to either simulate zombie-ness to be stronger and faster than a normal human could achieve, or to simulate being dead, so that you don’t get torn up so badly from it. Either way, it’s something that synergizes with being raised as a zombie, and thus we have this little fight here-Alister is giving Eric a crash course in being a zombie.
When Max inhabited Eric’s body, Arthur made modifications to it to give it super strength and super speed so it was comparable to his old body.
Alaster knows how zombie-style combat works because he’s been fighting like that for awhile. I don’t think there’s really any special training involved. It’s just a thing you learn how to do now that you’re a zombie. He’s just trying Yolo set the record straight that Eric is a zombie and should take advantage of it.
I also think that this was a convoluted way of taking Cross Reference away from the protagonists to possibly use it for later and not as a “get out of jail free” card. Cross Reference can’t just be used by Eric. Solstice is also a very well read mage (not just a Golemancer) and could probably just look up any magic tome she wanted being the Scholars Society representative. She might even have access to documents and books Eric doesn’t have (he looked up Trevor’s old notes on the bracer so it can pull up individual documents). It was a cheap plot device waiting to happen if it stayed with the protagonists.
Strangely enough, Eric has a necromancy tome that he stole from the Wights. Who thinks they want to see him use it?
Trying to wet the record* darn autocorrect is messing with me.
