There’s a lot going on this weekend! First up, I’ll be at the Vancouver Comic Arts Festival! It’s my very first Canadian convention, I’m nervous and excited! Come See me at TABLE D8.
This weekend is ALSO Wonder Northwest in Portland! I won’t be there, but I did the design for the LIMITED EDITION WNW Sticker that will be for sale at the convention! There are only 100 of them, so get there early and snag one!
Some really lovely lighting. I’ve been barefoot through a few forests and it is a really awesome feeling. Everything just seems to come more alive.
Love the mottled light of the forest. And especially how Gabe is always highlighted in the cascading light.
Everyone coming along and Gabe looks determined. I can’t think of any reason why closing a Hellmouth would be easy.. or safe.
Can I assume that Michelle’s father used one of these openings to go after her back in the Orientations chapter?
Nice page, because it gives a bit of info in Skin Deep’s… more unusual places.
Wait, did Hank bring his shotgun?
Looks like it to me. You can see it clearest in the fourth panel.
More importantly, is he loaded for demon – with silver double-ought shot? Or would Gabe be able to do an on-the-fly transmutation at the crucial moment?
Wait. Doesn’t salt have some kind of anti-evil-spirit property in the historical imagination? What about shells full of rock salt? That’s would be apprpriately hillbilly chic. It would have the advantage of also stinging like a sonofabitch.
Yes. Many religions/beliefs regard salt as a pure and un-corruptable substance.
No, he didn’t. It’s his wing. Look at the last panel, and then the fourth panel. You can see the lines of his feathers. I’m assuming he just had his wings crossed and the angle made it /look/ like he had his shotgun. You certainly made me look twice for it :)
No, that’s definitely the shotgun. It’s actually least clear in the fourth panel, but you can see it in the first (although it does look a bit like a large feather), and in the last he’s holding it in his right wing.
Wait-do you watch Supernatural?
I simply love the fact you didn’t give Gabe/Gabriel shoes. :P it must be an angel thing.
Well, to be fair, we didn’t evolve to wear shoes. It’s a comfort thing, not a necessity thing.
Case in point #1: the isolated tribes in Africa and South America that never wear shoes.
Case in point #2: Me. I go barefoot as often as I can get away with it, in any kind of weather, and (almost) any surface. By now, my calluses have calluses.
Barefoot is the best! <3
Ooohhh, big fluffy fox tail! And digitigrade Eustace has all his weight on those pads, not even half-way to his ankles. More weight, less area, more ouchies.
