D&D Context Edit

  • Resurrection is a 7th level spell, more powerful than Raise Dead, as the dead can be in any condition and are raised to full health.

Trivia Edit

  • The last time all six members of the Order of the Stick were alive and in the same location was in #424.
  • The title is also the title of two songs from Pink Floyd's 1979 album, The Wall.
  • The resurrection sequence is reminiscent of the reconstruction of Leeloo in the 1997 Luc Besson film, The Fifth Element.
  • Elan thought he could become invisible by taking off all his armor and clothes in #25, #25, and #27.
  • Diaphanous means light, delicate, and translucent, like an insect's wing.
