If you know the book, this is creative license. But really, does anybody object to a few extra pages of Gwydion's being awesome?

No?

Didn't think so.

(If you're hitting this page from the Vox article, THANK YOU for clicking. Needless to say I agree with David's assessment in every respect. If you don't know what I'm talking about, go here because this is fabulous, and you can see what all the fuss is about.)

If you like what you see, some love in the form of a comment or vote is very motivating to me to keep up to speed. I don't hold comic pages hostage for comments, but when viewers interact, it lights my creative fire.

And if you just can't wait to know what happens, go to amazon and buy the book.

I do not object to extra Gwydion badassery in any way whatsoever.

I should really read this series... I'm absolutely certain it's in my parent's library somewhere, and I've been meaning to bust back into some fantasy reading.

Awesome work as usual. I always have a hard time with two characters physically interacting with each other.

You can't go wrong with this series. The writing is so minimalist that you can easily read a book in a day or two if you're a fast reader, and get a good bead on whether you like them enough to keep going (though it's worth noting that the first in the series is the most child-friendly and lighthearted, and they get progressively more serious in tone until the end).

Your characters interact so well I would never have thought it at all a problem for you. But then, this type of heavy-action scene is very difficult for me. Perhaps the elements in which we know our own weaknesses become our greatest triumphs, since we have to work at them harder.

Of course not! He's my favorite so far.

I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your efforts to do this, and how impressed I am with your illustrations.

I have loved the series since I was a boy, and recall the cover with the horned king drawing me to the book.

All three of my kids got to hear the wonderful audiobook version of the series during my commute to their schools, and I might show this to my fourth grade son to get him interested in reading the book for himself.

Jim, thank you so much for your encouragement! I am always so happy to hear from fans of the series. I hope your kids enjoy it as much as you have. I'm still waiting for mine to get hooked.

A friend just gave me the link to this series. I absolutely LOVE what you're doing, and I've loved the Taran stories ever since I got the books in 197something. And I wrote my first fan fiction about Gwydion, not from "The Book of Three" but from the insanely awesome "Four Branches of the Mabinogi" by Evangeline Walton. Been hooked to welsh mythology ever since. Thank you for taking us on this journey!

I LOVE the Walton books, and I read them the first time while touring Wales, which was such a magical experience - to see these familiar names and recognize the references in the various historical places.

Have you published your fanfiction anywhere? Would love to see that - I wrote prolifically within this fandom and I borrowed heavily from Walton’s influence in my prequel novel to the series. My work is here: https://m.fanfiction.net/u/816343/CompanionWanderer

We’ve got a pretty good community of writers actually, would love to have you join us!
