Happy December!

Not much to say on this one, other than HANG IN THERE through all this silent setup. There are pages with actual plot and dialogue coming up soon, though maybe not in the immediate next update.

Fun fact, the first two pages were drawn around a year ago, and the third page was drawn this week because I thought this story beat needed something a little extra. Don't know if it was worth the effort or not, I guess that's up to posterity to decide.

By the way, thank you so much for reading, and if you are a returning reader, thanks so much for coming back. I know two weeks between pages can seem like an eternity, and I appreciate your patience. Your comments and support are the coals that feed my engine, you all keep me going, and I am eternally grateful.

Beautiful work, son!
Hi Milo,
What you beautiful work you’ve done on this project. This reminds me that I was on the right track when I allowed you to draw your way through high school. I’m so proud of your work ethic and amazed by the way your mind works and how you use your gifts. Much love! Ma

Amazing pacing
I am enthralled with the way this is opening is paced. This is the most cinematic comic I have ever seen.

Those masks
I am loving the mask designs for these characters. That plus the outfit/armor designs make this 100% my thing.

I'm absolutely hooked. I haven't seen a comic this beautifully and luxuriously illustrated in a long time. Well worth however long any wait may be.

I actually love the story being told without words (so far). I know there is a time and place for dialogue, but there is something so satisfying to me when it can be told successfully without. And you, sir, are exceeding expectations. I'm glad I came back to revisit it, beyond the first page.

Daughter of the Lilies sent me here too, and I'm really glad it did. Count me as another one who'd follow you on RSS if I could. :)

I'm also here from DOTL. Your artwork is gorgeous! I can't wait to see how your story progresses.

Oh. Oh. Oh WOW. Amazing art, intriguing start. I am totally stunned.

Didn't notice any RSS, is there one? Miss it really.

The way you illustrate what is happening wordlessly is amazing.

Is there an alien invasion going on?

@man in black is correct. Well done Milo. It is also ironic, and tantalizing, that the blurb on DoTL reads, "As you can clearly see, the art is illustrative in quality, and you've already had a preview of the author's writing skills. Why not give it a shot?" and we've yet to get to the dialogue, though so far the art is so good I hardly miss it, even though I've read some of your fanfic, I believe.
Well done.
The placement of the fortress, and of the ambushers, makes sense. Dadgum branch. That's gonna hurt unless his outfit snags a tree. I'll bet he was too cold to grab anything else on the way down so far.

Your art is making promises I hope your story can keep. ;)
I found you through Daughter of the Lilies, so in not too worried. Thank you for your awesome work!
