LOL: Web Comic Explains Why Gandalf Doesn't Just Hitch A Ride On Giant Eagles In 'The Hobbit' Or 'Lord Of The Rings'

We've all thought about it. We've thought about it multiple times. When he's on the top of Isengard. When they join fight at the gates of Mordor. When they save Frodo and Sam from Mordor in Return of the King. When they help the dwarves in An Unexpected Journey. Why the hell doesn't Gandalf just ask the giant eagles to bring the Fellowship to Mordor in the Lord of the Rings or the dwarves to the Lonely Mountain in The Hobbit? They seem willing to help, very strong and it's not a big deal. Wouldn't that have saved a lot of time, stress and lives?

Two artists think they have the answer. Not really, of course, but it's funny nonetheless. Check it out below.
