Chapter Two finished!!!!!
Thanks to all new subscribers and especially those of you who take the time to comment and vote. It really means a lot to hear directly from readers. And it seems there are a number of you who subbed not because you are familiar with the books I'm adapting but just because you are enjoying the comic as a New Thing in its own right, and that makes me extraordinarily happy.
I've only been on this site a bit over a month, and am impressed with the level of community and positivity here. Thanks again, and may you continue to be engaged and enjoy this story!
Can't wait for the next chapter!
When I read this before (1980s), I identified with Taran, of course. Now in this chapter I identify with Gwydion. It must be a shock to deal with Taran's questions after traveling in silence for a month. He bears up with dignity. :) Now to ponder: is it because I'm older, or is it the visual medium and the direction of the artist's pen?
Does it matter? :)
This is, after all, one of the unique qualities that makes these books hold up so well for all ages. Most of their strongest fans are adults who loved them as kids, and find new insight into them as they age.
The road to maturity being one of their overriding themes, I can think of no greater testimony to their author's skill and wisdom.
