A slight experiment in confusion. July 3, 2012 Posted by Mookie
Today's comic is a bit of an experiment.

This comic originally had dialogue in most of the panels, explaining what Dominic is using his second sight on, what Milov is yelling about, what Stunt is carrying, an explanatory exclamation regarding Quilt's discovery of Snowsong (who's been at Aberthast Cathedral since her attack on Barthis), and Tessa's condition. But it all felt too expository and forced. So I cut the dialogue completely. If some things are a little unclear and somewhat confusing, then that's entirely on purpose. I felt the uncertainty of what's going on added to the confusion, anxiety, and restrained chaos of the rescue effort.

Maybe you think it works. Maybe you think it doesn't. That's the exciting and terrifying aspect of trying something a little different when telling a story.

As for Snowsong, don't forget that her battle with SuperGreg is available in the SEER'S CATALOG!

And finally, thanks to all of you for the very kind birthday wishes!

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