Go into the water. Live there. Die there. July 21, 2008 Posted by Mookie
The serious fantasy writer in me imagines the hydra's song as a haunting whale song, only infused with the innate magic of the world and harmoniously joined in five equal and yet unique parts.

The smartass in me imagines the hydra's song as a barbershop quintet.

I'll let you folks be the judge as to what version haunted Luna for days afterwards.

In any case, I decided to go with a full-page splash panel (pun intended) today because I wanted to give the encounter a similar feel to that of the dragon in Nagastrali. I decided to do it in color because... well, I just felt like it. I may also feel a little guilty whenever I do a big one-panel comic on any day that isn't Sunday, so making today's strip colored is really just to ease the epic amounts of guilt I carry around anyway. When you're raised an Italian Catholic and spend your youth hanging out with Jews, you get a lot of it.

Other than that, the only news to report is that CONNECTICON is drawing ever closer! I'll have some neat swag for you to purchase, a guest artist doing commissions, and I'll be doing lots of (hopefully) entertaining panels! If you only go to one convention this year, make it this one. You won't regret it.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on.
