Happy BD Lloyd, and Yay! Those are some scary silhouettes (I know you would have liked to have included more of that story) and the staircase looks amazing, like something from the LoTR movies, but also uniquely Prydain.

I like how you included the apprehensive Fflewddur from "Sunrise," bravely leading Melyngar through the switchbacks...

Just beautiful art here!

Another example of Fflewddur being quietly heroic while nobody notices.

This landscape was inspired by the Camino del Rey near Malaga. Check out some images if you’ve never heard of it!

Man, your landscape skills are epic! Makes me want to go spelunking.

And poor Doli...life would be soooo much easier if he would only let it...

Beautiful page as always; here's to many more following as fast as possible! Be safe out there.

Huzzah! Welcome back. I hope your holidays were enjoyable. I think I have stated this before but one of my favorite things is when there are allusions to other adventures/ stories in the world. Things that are happening that don't involve the main characters. Makes for good world building. That panel with the two fae in the shadows is a nice little example of that.

The perspective on this page is absolutely fantastic and I love the background blurring around Doli holding his breath haha. You do such a great job showing the otherworldly feel of the fae realm and the expressions as they go across the tiny walkways. I convinced a friend to read the series, and I can't wait to share this comic with them. :)

His eldest son shared a certain Adolf's birthday ... and when 1945 came around (and everyone not freed by policemen/Vlasov or Patton got liberated by the one disciplined army group on the Soviet Western front) he cried, much to everyone's confusion and then amusement, because everyone forgot to hang out the spider flags for him.

It's great to see some of my favorite adventurers back on the move! That last panel (or maybe I should call it a painting because it's much more than just a panel) is beautifully done as the characters make their way along the ledge and cross the bridge with some stunning landscape imagery all around them.

I hope the project that you were working on went well!

In the latest Harry Dresden book, which i am finally reading, the huntsmen of Annuvin make a number of appearances.
It's not Jim Butcher's best work, but I've a far greater appreciation for the shambolic horrors thanks to you, and I'm enjoying it more than i otherwise would have. Thank you.

I’m not familiar with the Dresden books, but apparently there’s a connection; you’re the second person to mention them in the same breath as Prydain. As always, for whatever way my works brings joy, I am honored.

Their author mentioned in (at least) one interview that the Chronicles were influential books for him. I’ve listened to a few of his books on audio — enjoyable if not always spectacular. Dresden is a modern-day wizard detective based in Chicago. The books bring in quite the mashup of folklore monsters, fae, etc.

I been wond'rin' about the goblins in panel three. One has limp hair, consistent with other characters. The other...

Is that hair sleeked back with wax? Or is it blowing in a wind that no one else experiences? If Goblin #1 turned its/his/her head, would the hair keep streaming in the same direction?

Ahhh, but how do you know it’s hair? Perhaps it is some sort of twiggy, mossy outgrowth, or a hat intended to camouflage its wearer in thickets of bracken.

You never can tell, with fae.
