Cauldron-born brought to you by my favorite Disney artist. Who had nothing to do with their abominable cartoon version, by the way.

Our partnership produces some beautifully hideous moments.

They just can't catch a break, can they?

Alright... Bandits... Taken care of... Wait. Zombies!? REALLY!? GAH!

The fluffy bunnies are coming up, don't worry.

....except not really. Psychotic evil bitch, dungeons, and torture on the docket, stat.

Gwydion never gets a break, does he. Poor guy.

Nope! But at least he's used to this kind of thing. Poor sheltered farmboy back there is getting a whole new education.

stuck under snow but worth it. Taran's face looks just like my gf's did when I told her i was a full on comic geek and not just a part time movie fan

That would probably have been my expression too, for any story but this one. ;)

THOSE CAULDRON-BORN ARE AWESOMELY TERRIFYING!! *excited flailing*

LOL I dunno, I think I'd take the CB over zombies. At least the CB have to stop when they get too far from Annuvin, and there's no eating of brains involved.

Also, I don't think being killed by cauldron born turns you into a cauldron born like zombies, at least if I remember correctly. Yeah, I prefer them to zombies any day. But I wouldn't want to meet either.

No, you only become cauldron born if you are dunked in the cauldron yourself, though Gwydion does say their driving force is to bring others to their same bondage. So I imagine it is a risk but not a given.

Oh, man, they look great!

And nice work with the jagged panel borders, too. And Gwydion's squinting eyes, and then how they widen.

And the rain is already fading the bloodstain on Taran. Great attention to detail!

I'm loving this.

Holy crap! I had to come out of lurking to express just how much I adore the water on Gwydion's face in the last panel.

I love the Cauldron-born emerging from the mist. It's very creepily done. Gwydion and crew aren't getting much of a chance to catch their breath this chapter!
