Women love it when you cower behind them.

Women don’t love infodumps. No one loves infodumps. So I try to make sure entertaining characters give them. I’m a bit concerned that as I draw him more and more, Naksuanan increasingly resembles a Moochava from my previous comic. In fact Maheti didn’t look like rodents even when they had skin.

Had a lot of fun drawing the steam on this page. Of course I keep hearing Glen from Wayne’s World. “You know, if you stab a man in the dead of winter, steam will rise up from the wounds. Indians believed it was his soul escaping from his body.”

Other fantasy authors study Orlando Furioso and The Faerie Queene. I get Wayne’s World.
