I'm ALIIIIIIIVE!!

(bonus if you heard that in the tune from Kenny Loggin's The Last Unicorn.)

Sorry, folks. I never intended to be gone for five months when I took my last break, and unfortunately I can't even promise I won't disappear again shortly; confluence of circumstances are making it difficult to get any hobby art done, but I'll do what I can, and thank you all for continuing to prod and let me know you're patiently waiting. I can't believe the length of the comment section on the last page!

This one was a fun intro back into this magic. And pro-tip: if you ever find yourself needing to draw otherworldly-looking fungi, don't waste time trying to make it up. Just google it, because you cannot out-weird nature in this department.

OMG How pretty! The colors are amazing, just glowing with light. I hope you add some of the story from "Sunrise" here, LOL. Hey they changed the comment section while we were gone, looks a little more sophisticated now... ;-)

So happy you did this!!!

Gigantic bioluminescent fungi!!! Gorgeous! I love how the view angle and zig-zagging path in this one really create a sense of journey, too. What a wonderful way to dive back into this comic. Thank you!

Anyone else having trouble with the login on ComicFury? It still works fine on my PC, but from my iPad, the ComicFury page says I'm logged in, but when I try to post a comment it says I'm not logged in.

It has something to do with your browser not accepting third party cookies. It’s doing the same thing for me (as you see, I can’t login from my phone) and I saw some chatter on the forum about it. Somebody had a workaround, but I didn’t really follow it.

What a great return! You know, I used to think of you as "that artist that does faces so well," but this fantasy landscape is pretty fantastic! I really like the "cavern-within-a-cavern" that the stream is flowing out of.

Also: Hobby art is a hobby. Long disappearances are sometimes necessary. Take care of the important stuff first.

This page is so lovely.
And fungus is magic and beautiful.
The underground stream looks so refreshing. I like how you captured both the feeling of being underground and the feeling of open airiness in this landscape.

Really "otherworldly," indeed.

I'm getting Simpsons' "The Land of the Jockeys" vibes. I don't imagine this was at all in your head, or anyone else's, and now I'm sorry if you guys can't unsee that, but that's that.

Beautiful work.

True, true.
No one has made a "What?!? I'm a fun guy!" joke yet, but at least PumpkinheadPie got some of my references, though he overstates my competence. I was one of those kids too young to play Metamorphosis Alpha or even much Basic D&D, Intermediate D&D and AD&D who'd just read the modules and whist, though I whisted fully. I actually play a version of whist with cards when I visit certain family or with my daughter's buddies, but ...

Very pretty and imaginative! It's not how I ever imagined the realm of the FairFolk to look, but it's much better than my imagination! I like all the giant mushrooms. Very psychedellic!
I also like the cottage. Reminiscent of a hobbit's hole or underground house.

Oh it’s nice to see you here! And yes, I think this is different even than my own ideas when I first read the books - but the more I played with ideas for the Fair Filk realm, the weirder it got, and this is much more interesting than my first thoughts on the topic!

I've rememeber that I've sen your Taran and Eilonwy way back in time and your character design stuck with me.

Now, I am Danish and the Prydian chronicles are not that populair in Denmark so first time I stumble across Taran was with Disney.. back in the 90s. And it was a first a decade later or more, I found the books. And they instantly became one of my favorites! As I am reading them again I wanted to find your pages. And so I did and I am ever so happy to see your artwork again <3

You really captured the Fair folk realm! I love the bridges and how it just seems to go on and on in the background! I am a HUGE fan of this book series and just so disgusted with disney's interpretation, but I'm so so so glad somebody stepped in to do it justice! I found you right as you finished chapter 16 page 6, but all the wait was worth it just to see you back at it again!
I love your work so much, and I am eagerly anticipating further exploration of the fair folk realm!!!

I missed this so much 💕

I remember discovering this comic when I was 13! I was so desperate for more prydain content after having finished the series when I stumbled onto this and immediately fell in love! I was always up to date, however, school came around and I got so busy, I forgot about it :(( Quarantine rly had me looking back on all the stuff I used to consume, and I'm so glad I revisited and reread this!

I'm an art student now and I just wanna say that you really have been a huge inspiration for me, my art, and my storytelling! Thank you so much for breathing new life into these characters that I adored so much in my childhood and even until now. I'll make sure to be up to date again with this comic! Please keep it up! :))

Lots of love from the Philippines!

Hey! I just found this and being a massive fan of The Chronicles of Prydain, I read the entire thing (well what you have so far). Honestly saying I'm impressed doesn't really go far enough, your drawings of the characters are pretty much how I imagined them in the story. And the art as well, it's stunning! Thank you so much for making this. Have a God Blessed day!
