He couldn’t break the bubble around Anya. Now that she is dressed just like Tenid in this scene http://stonebreakercomic.com/stonebreaker/how-the-story-goes/ I wonder what the connection between the two may be? Reply Walex says: January 17, 2018 at 8:00 am «she is dressed just like Tenid in this scene» Well, this could be our author being symbolic, but there is an in-story possible rationale: in the demon world reality and memory get confused, as the raven says two pages earlier, in page “landscapes”. There are three important differences in the story: Anyalin has not drawn the sword (useless indeed), the focus stone bird led her to the protection stone and not Hadol’s raven, and she is protecting also her demon friend. It is not an exact repetition of the past, “history rhymes”. Reply Damiano says: January 16, 2018 at 1:35 am Well, this scene is amazing… Great art, beautiful story as usual!!! Reply Garth Hill says: January 16, 2018 at 1:48 pm very nicely done, man. you continue to rock it. Reply Yook says: January 16, 2018 at 6:45 pm Oh my gosh, I love this comic so much. This is such a great scene. 😀 Reply Walex says: January 17, 2018 at 7:46 am Great story, and the symbolism is interesting: two demons, both made sentient by taking the names and memories of human beings, and one behaving like a bitter, angry human, and the other like a reasonable, helpful human, and a young girl being here the equal in bravery of a king. Reply MI says: January 17, 2018 at 11:29 am “a young girl being here the equal in bravery of a king” Yet, unlike the king who chose violence first (drawn sword), the girl does not. Reply Walex says: January 18, 2018 at 6:59 pm «unlike the king who chose violence first (drawn sword)» One of the great virtues of our author is that he does not put in his story cartonish evil/good characters, but people and demons which are greyish and conflicted even some are nicer than others. In the present case, Tenid did not attack Stonebreaker, and had reasons to fear him because Stonebreaker, for pure reasons of territoriality and jealousy, without first speaking to them, and now we know because he simply hates/despises all humans, had destroyed the first, wood-house edition of Noridun, probably killing a lot of people. Also, Anyalin does not really have a sword, except perhaps in this merging of memory and reality scene, and when she tried to handle a sword as in confronting Kohjen she was not awesome at it… 🙂 Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
