I hope he gets a happy ending with Mrs. Norrington. Hell I wouldn't mind he & she getting married & having a baby together!

When you do these cover pieces I just fall so deep in (more) love with this.

I'm still wondering why Disbelief used the phrase "I love you" to defeat him. Is it possibly because Der Erlkonig told the child "Ich liebe dich" and in his hurry to take the child, he killed him? Does he grieve and seek forgiveness for the murder that he did not mean to commit?

The reason is buried in the series; most of the important pieces are out now, but the last few clues should be out... well... someday, depending on my wrists healing.

Thank you, by the way. It must be rather difficult to upload these pages due to your wrists! I hope they feel better!

These pages were already finished before my wrists busted. There's... going to be a bit of a hiatus when I run out.

Oh, that's okay though. It's your comic! And it's not like you can help it, it's going to take some time for you to heal.

Oh... Mr. King seems to be in serious trouble somehow. Yey. I can begin making the new cbz. (I just like to end when more-or-less an arc ends so my volumes probably not always begin and end where the "official" ones.) :D

I kind of hope that this is a hint that maybe Daddy Erlkonig & Mamma Widow Norrington could meet up again. Regardless, this is beautiful.

As far as I remember this is a fairly common expression dating back to the middle ages and if my memory serves right it's normally used to greet the new king, after the old one died. (The king is dead. Long live the king! being the long version.) ... Which is several kinds of ominous. :paranoid:

The gradient effect is really, really cool. Symbolism aside, that would have taken me ages to get right.

Judging by your comments, it looks like we're about to enter an arc that involves with Erlkonig. I'm guessing it must be connecting to the conversation he had with Queen of the Night.

I like how the branches at the top are rounded and gentle, while the ones below are more spikey…a reflection of the Underground/Erlkonig, perhaps? I also like how subtly the colors shift from top to bottom -- I only just realized it!
