Err...yeah, that angel isn't unsettling looking or anything. Also, friggin' ouch for Colleen. Not only is she bleeding and trapped under a pile of heavy wooden beams and debris, but now she's getting fried for being faithful.

Earning divine favor sounds like it sucks. :P

That angel actually looks more like those in the bible than the ones in popular culture.

Exactly what I came to say.

I doubt the power of paradise is inherently painful. I think being too small a vessel for the divine favor being channeled thru you is painful.

She needs to be a bigger vessel, and rushed growth is almost always painful.

I like the idea of holy power being taxing, if not actually painful, to receive. It /is/ other worldly. Nice touch.
Rocktopus 12th Jul 2019, 9:21 PM edit delete reply
Thanks! That was the idea!

The human body/ vessel can't really handle divine power all that well apparently.

Are we getting a hint about future plot here? Is she going to setting somebody free? Her record so far doesn't show much of that. Of course she may need to get some riches to finance the plan. Or, a lot of priests use the idea of slaves to sin, and thus can say they are freeing somebody [from sin] even as they throw them in jail.

Maybe their using the term souls a bit more literally in this case and the dungeon is imprisoning the souls of everyone that dies inside it? Hm.

I was afraid that I had made you angry.

No not at all!
Thomas S 13th Jul 2019, 5:25 AM edit delete reply
The Three Faces of the angel are disquieting. I anticiapte revelations that are less than comforting with the angel, but I also anticiapte being wrong. Evil and Heavenly are aspects of human values that fall outisde our understanding and into the standing of that of gods.

Somehow - I am reminded of the Gods of Arr-kelaan - and how godlike aspects were not the end of being human, but just another start ... kinda ...

Anyway I digress, nice page, I continue to enjoy the lettering, the artwork which is really clean, well thought out and consistently of the same standard & quality.

StLOrca 14th Jul 2019, 1:43 AM edit delete reply
That much power should hurt, Colleen. Our bodies weren’t designed to contain those forces. It also keeps you from taking it for granted.
Rocktopus 15th Jul 2019, 6:27 AM edit delete reply
That's the idea!

You really capture the way angelic beings should be depicted. Awesome and terrific in the original sense of the words.

Thanks! That was the goal.

I am wondering about the position of the hand in the last pannel. The figuers are in a different place around the cross and it just dont really make sense to me.
BornOnTheNinth 14th Jul 2019, 8:22 PM edit delete reply
Does this make Colleen a prophetess?
Rocktopus 15th Jul 2019, 6:28 AM edit delete reply
It means something!
Sen 15th Jul 2019, 6:41 AM edit delete reply
Wait. Does that mean she has a cross shaped burn scar on her hand?
David Argall 16th Jul 2019, 11:56 PM edit delete reply
Maybe. I don't think we have a clear view of her palm, at least in "modern" times. Most of the time she has been wearing gloves. One would think she would want display any such holy mark, but she has had good reason to keep it covered to date, and a church command to keep it covered is not that unreasonable.
Sturzkampf 16th Jul 2019, 8:05 AM edit delete reply
Free many souls in bondage? This really is going to end with 95 theses nailed to the cathedral door isn't it?
Guesticus 16th Jul 2019, 3:10 PM edit delete reply
Burning at the touch of a cross? Colleen is a vampire? o_O
Rezilia 17th Jul 2019, 7:30 PM edit delete reply
No, the light of heaven just hurts like hell. It's not something the mortal body is meant to touch.

there is an ancient Chinese curse. "May you live in interesting times."
David Argall 16th Jul 2019, 10:39 PM edit delete reply
Like many another "ancient" Chinese point, the curse is modern [1948?], and American. We are not as bad as the Japanese about thinking that "ancient Chinese" means deem wisdom, but we are not immune to the fallacy either.
Speeedracer 17th Jul 2019, 6:03 PM edit delete reply panel two it looks like she's holding HIS *wood*...and he's saying 'you shall set them free'

lol. is this angel a nephilim?
ThorinSchmidt 18th Jul 2019, 11:51 PM edit delete reply
This is just me thinking out loud.
Since the Duke seems to be very big on the whole "Divine Right" thing, my guess is the only person he'd pay attention to is an actual angel, or a very powerful cleric who could kick the butts of His Grace's(majesty) Knights with one arm tied behind her back. She's not there yet, of course...
Guesticus 19th Jul 2019, 2:17 AM edit delete reply
No, the Duke is just an inbred areshole in a petty squabble with his brother over who gets to sit in Daddy's Big Seat and wear his fancy hat
