Those poor, innocent humans are going to get hurt so badly in the next few pages....

If the next page Loth and Sev just die, I would be certainly more surprised than on the page after that where they get resurected or something.

Umm... "Only one of these blast is real"??
Please fix :(

"Only one of these blasts is real"

The number of real blasts is one

Not necessarily. Sticking with the same setup of many things, and specifically one of them, "We have many apples, but only these are for sale," works grammatically better than these is for sale, but both work. It's just an unfortunate lead in, but a general rule is to not make the English language "hiss" (according to my old teacher) by placing a bunch of S's next to each other if you can avoid it.

TL:DR its fine as it stands, just a little awkward.

Have always felt that the specific number determines the usage of 'is' or 'are', and, in this case, the number of blasts is 'one'

You still got it wrong. It's supposed to say "Only one of these blasts is real."

The verb is referring to the singular blast that is real.
Scruft Tuesday, the 17th of June at 2:36 PM, 2014 edit delete reply
Only if they were referring to a singular object. "Only this blast is/are real," is would be the correct one. However they're referring to multiple exploding bits, with ... only one (with "of many" being an understood implication)of these". Again though, its a tricky lead to.

In regards to grammar

The grammatically correct phrasing of the sentence in question according to the official proper rules of the written English language is .... hey, look! dragongirlboobs!!

Grammar Nazi's

Your use of the apostrophe in "Nazi's" is incorrect, as it should only be used to signify the possessive, not the plural form.

Don't pick on the poor lady's grammar - give her a break - she and her brosband are probably going to be dead or horribly injured in just a few strips anyway.

You know, when a character is talking, I don't think proper grammar is all that necessary. Sure, making what they intelligible is important, but how many people speak with proper grammar all the time?

It's more realistic to have the characters speak with flaws in their grammar.

You omitted the word "say" in between the word "they" and the word "intelligible" in your comment!

A self proving comment, then.
(althought probably not on purpose)
Beside the comic actually is gramatically correct
" one of these blasts is real" is similar to 'one blast among other is real' which is a bit more obvious
