I like to think that that big dark patch of dead trees was just over to their right the whole time and they just never bothered to look that way :\
Are you suggesting something ominous is approaching behind them?
Or behind Namu at least. Kind of like that wolf tree that just appeared right?
Nah, I was just joking. They just moved beyond that bush Namu was hiding in and into a slightly different patch of forest. The only ominous thing is the place they’re headed to
hmmm – I’m thinking the forest moves, and is itself a beast. Love Namu’s eyes, so expressive!
It might be just me but I found I read the second two speech bubbles in the first panel in the wrong order because I was automatically reading top-down, left to right. Is it be possible to shift ‘The Rook Men took…’ a bit to the left and ‘There’s a chance…’ down a bit as a fix?
Hm possibly. I do all my edits at the end of each volume so I’ll take a note it and fix it up before it heads to print.
I read that wrong at first too. Yes, I agree it could do with a bit of fixing.
I read them in wrong order too. Might be fixable by moving up the “Rook men took Sid’s Children…” and bump it next to the top left bubble and then move the “There’s a chance they might be there…” down in that same spot. Might have to Move Namu to the right for that to work, but I think that will clear up confusion.
Dead God, I just reread my post. I need an edit function as well; “the second two speech bubbles…” makes no sense and would read a lot better as “the second and third speech bubbles…”, also “Is it be”…!!!
I wonder if Namu’s version of ‘close’ matches theirs…
Wow, Namu. What big eyes you have!
All the better to – wait a second. Where have I heard this before…?
Next page: “What the…? Dude, you led us into a trap. We’re trapped!”
“Sorry, cousin. It’s for your own good. You must not go into the City.”
It’s a little late in the chapter to be asking, but what happened to the smaller beastie the Twins sent to guide them? Did it only lead them so far?
Hah I was wondering when someone was gonna ask about that little beast! The twins technically sent it to lead them away from the rook that night so it didn’t stay with em the whole journey. It certainly would’ve been happy to continue leading them to the city, but Sid didn’t trust it and chased it off sometime between books 2 and 3!
I was thinking their only role was to make sure Sid and Bali left the husk tree and made it safely into the deeper forest until the next beast could lead them. I thought maybe Namu’s being “trapped” was a test to see if Bali would come to help to prove his worth. But I recall you saying Namu isn’t that smart to think out such a plan.
