‘Guard? Standing right here? Hello?”
well how much fun is it if they aren’t watching for you?
G-dust obviously hasn’t seen “Minority Report”.
Minority report was conviction by probability, rather than intent.
THESE jokers are equating desire with intent
Both are equally wrong, but desire equaling intent is really the inquisitions’ playbook. Catholic elves? Whoda thunk it?
Zen Byron looks high.
He may be. Could be a side effect of the anti-zerking meds.
Nah, when elves arrest someone, the first thing they do is get them so baked they can’t/don’t want to run away.
They do have access to potent mushrooms as I recall.
It completely looks like Bandit is just sporting a ponytail instead of her traditional pigtails until the last panel. It kept messing with me as I read the page.
Also, I feel for that guard, but Bandit could totally take him. She didn’t even need to whisper.
so if Bandit is HR, he’s trying to spring Byron to bring things back in line with his programming? I don’t see how that outcome would result. I’m having a hard time buying his motivation as Bandit.
Seems like Bandit still has a bit of an axe to grind about the whole trifurcation whoopsie.
I don’t know…I think she’s pulled herself together very well.
Yes, a seamless effort.
What else would you expect from her? She’s no hack.
she was really busting the guard’s logs though.
Bandit sneaky-face is. SO. CUTE. She can steal from me anytime.
I hearby dub anonymous guard elf to be named Sc’wl. I hope Bandit continues to antagonize him.
It seems to me like they’ve thrown Byron into a re-purposed hobbit hole.
Does this mean Byron is going to come to a Bag End?
Sure, why not?
I understand you guys are making the guards anonymous and expendable…but I’ve had waaaay to much fun playing the Thief games to disregard guards – half the fun was sneaking up on some of them and listening to the triggered dialogue.
If you had put two guards on Byron’s cell, I would have dubbed them Frw’nr and Dw’nr.
For some reason I suspect stealing something is Bandit’s initial reaction to everything, whether good or bad.
To everything, steal, steal, steal.
In every season, steal, steal, steal.
And a theft for every purpose under Heaven.
Love? Steal present.
Hate? Steal weapon.
A time to embrace? Steal your wallet.
Bandit loves listening to the Byrds. Every verse has the same refrain.
omg! Gold star!
So’s ya c’n STEAL it, coz it’s GOLD!
And, and, and..! Are the Byrds magpies? Coz they like SHINY things like GOLD!!
Oh, oh, oh..! Is Bandit’s Spirit Animal a MAGPIE??? Coz that’d be AWESOME!
Hey, hey, hey..! I’M maggPi… Does that make ME Bandit’s Spirit Animal?? Coz THAT’d AWESOMER!!
(becomes so overcome with excitement, maggPi explodes with a ‘pfft!’ and little black-and-white feathers drift gently down)
You gotta respect da family. Now make ‘em an offer dey can’t refuse. Capish?
Just see the elf Corly’On.
“I’m in pieces”
Oh Bandit. Never change. Except for level-ups.
Next panel? GD remembering who he’s talking about, and rushing off to stop her before she steals too much.
Pleasing these elves seems to be rather a tall order.
Don’t steal our puns, Bandit, that’s a little irritating.
Well this is interesting. One wonders if Byron must speak for himself in the trial, or if Syr is allowed to also speak.
‘Cos if it’s just him, he’s screwed. :P
if those bars are made of wood, then they should be even easier to break out of.
Nah, they’re grown out of ironwood. :D
If they have stuff made out of wood, they’re a little hypocritical. Given what he’s in there for.
Apparently they don’t kill trees to make stuff… look; the whole corridor is made from one piece of wood (actually I think they’re inside a tree, but that counts too!)
I have a random question for John: How long does it take you to completely finish a page, on average?
Well, Suki, it depends on the complexity of the page. The more complex, the longer it takes, but on average, I’d say about two days, one day to pencil and one day to ink and color. If I had to break it down into hours, it’d probably be about 4 to 5 hours for penciling, 2 to 3 hours for inking, and 6 to 7 hours for coloring, so we’re looking at between 12 and 15 hours or there abouts put into a page, but not all at once.
I see! Well thank you very much for your response. You put a lot of work in these pages and they look wonderful. :)
Does anyone else think that in panel 2, Byron’s head looks oddly disconnected from the rest of his body? His head is leaning forward, but the rest of him is still standing upright.
Not really. His head is at least partially through the bars, which means he just stuck his neck out a bit for the chat. Hopefully (?) he can fit his head back through the bars without too much trouble. :D
Well, yes, I can see that his head is through the bars, but it is at such an odd angle to the rest of his body on the other side of the bars. It looks almost like he’s Reed Richards from the Fantastic Four stretching his neck out.
Rubberserker, Arkerra’s newest superhero!
It’s the same pose as in the first frame.
The thing that’s throwing you is that his lower arm is obstructing view of how he is leaning on the grating.
Looks like Byron doesn’t have a bed in that cage. That’s gotta be bad for the lumber support.
Naror’nj is easily upset from years of resentment that the bards keep using him whenever they need a rhyme for “orange”.
