Roommates 326 -Quis Custodiet by AsheRhyder Roommates 326 -Quis Custodiet by AsheRhyder
In which a Hunter is Hunted,

OR

In which Erik's willpower is stretching thin.

Because when you come right down to it, these two have more reason to be at odds than any others in the main cast, and yet are somehow also the closest in time, space, and level of realism.

The panel where we first see Javert's face in this ep is quite possibly my favorite thing ever.


Erik belongs to Leroux and Webber.
Javert belongs to Hugo, Boublil, Schonberg, and Kretzmer.

Is it just me or have the sideburns grown progressively less prominent over the course of the comic?

The influence on how to draw sideburns has drifted from Wolverine to a character in Emma who had some pretty interesting sideburns.

oh dear..... Agreed, you were amazing on Javert's face!!! :D I get the feeling that they are close because a, they're French in an American/English-influenced society, b, let's face it, when it comes to sanity, these two have it. (not that Jamie or Jareth don't have sanity at times, but these two are the ones that talk the other two down... :D )

Yes, that shot of Javert's face is brilliant, as is Erik''s in the panel before. I also like the way you abstracted Javert's ponytail in the silhouettes; I thought at first it was Erlkoenig, as he looks very fae on the one hand and almost like a superhero on the other. Which I guess is kind of appropriate, considering...

Naturally. Erik can't help being Erik. And he only knows how to be Erik. Screw willpower.

Can we just level the bad show already? Or, let Jack sing the one decent song, and then level it? Please?


P.S.
I really hope your wrist gets better. Having gone through that myself, and being a writer, it's a thoroughly obnoxious time.

I'm still rather curious about that strange figure we saw at the Masquerade. Why do I get the feeling we will be seeing this mysterious specter soon? It seems rather odd that when Sarah asked about their vacation none seemed to remember this figure that seemed off to them. Knowing Jareth, it takes a lot to faze him and this figure did. Whoever could it be. The fact that it was drawn with such heavy and dark lines makes it all the more mysterious and intriguing.

Love I was actually expecting Erik to do something like this to. Because Erik is the Phantom after all and, well I would be very pissed about it to. Also your lines are amazing, and while I agree about the beautiful close up to the face of Javert, I also love the last panel. I think it's mostly for the poses, I have a think for them and what could represent (You know? the animal within? the detective? the Phantom? Erik? Great significance? ok I better shut up about this) Great Work!

Just an epic use of my favorite thing about your style: the silloutettes (I know I spelled that wrong, but right now I don't care!!)

You are making me wonder about where you are going with all of the hunter allusions with Javert, though...
Is it coincedence, or something slightly more? :paranoid:

Erik did have his own Javert of sorts back in the day with the Persian (though obviously with a completely different moral dynamic between the two of them)...this situation is probably eerily familiar to him.

And now we see why Javert is eschewing Crowe visualization. No cool hair.

Adore Javert's face--you've done your usual gorgeous job with him--though it occurs to me he's the last person in this world (or any other) to be questioning someone else's stalker-ish behaviour . . .
