Hey, when you need a minor casualty to keep your story moving, not one of your main characters, should it be someone who’s been introduced by name earlier in the story or just some rando with a sword? Asking for a friend. It kind of looks like Kepfer is the one who’s getting it here– that sword looks a little like the one he was waving and I can’t spot him elsewhere on the page– but that theory will be firmly disproven in a few pages.


Around this point, we started teasing our first wave of merchandise (or second if the T-shirt was first): three posters, six buttons. Frigg had a starring role in two posters and one button, which probably told you that she would be surviving this little misadventure, in case you were concerned.
