The Abyss is a single-page Oglaf story.
The Thaumaturge is approached for aid against an army of goblins massing on the border. Though initially reluctant to help, she is convinced when she hears that the goblins are "being total dicks". After she causes fire to rain down on the enemy camp, she sees the taunting by the men she helped and regrets her decision.
- the bad kind of dicks
- Be Yourself. Unless you're a dick. Is there some kind of test?
The title is likely a reference to the quote, "He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you." by Friedrich Nietzsche.
