Do NOT ask questions to which you would not like to know the answer ... :)

I don't know if this was a conscious consideration, but I remember in the initial run of AF (and in my opinion, on display here as well) being very excited about the opportunity for a different visual vocabulary for Michael Twoyoungmen's magic vs that which had originated from Euro/Asian origins like that of Strange or Doom.  < id="protanopia"> < id="deuteranopia"> < id="tritanopia">

You did not disappoint.

Amazing page, and a glimpse at Native American Magic, the look and
vibe of, like Wendy’s Friends and the Great Beasts, I bought into
hook/line/sinker as things that existed well before this guy started
creating them…. You are a master JB. Grateful for this page like no
other.

The trick is to be blatant about it! Present the fantasy as reality, no questions asked. Like Stan with the Blue Area on the Moon, or even Mary Shelley with the pseudo-science of FRANKENSTEIN.

I like that you lumped them both together. Though the Blue Area (and I'd also add the Savage Land) are not sci-fi concepts that are just universally accepted like the Frankenstein Monster is, they should be!

EXACTLY. 
That is ultimately what the original Star Wars (it really is one of the best examples of this) did so well. So much was so new on so many levels (not just the visuals but also the story, the music, the treatment of language) that if anything was presented in a half-ass fashion then it all would have fallen apart, and the whole would not have emerged as so much greater than the sum of the parts.  < id="protanopia"> < id="deuteranopia"> < id="tritanopia">

A drool-worthy page of action today. Many thanks. (Issue 27! Unbelievable.)

And the 3rd page continues just as strong.

One minor thing, the phrasing in the captions seem to suggest (to me at least!) that the demons Shaman is facing are not N' Garai. I imagine they are all the same, right?

"Edited to clarify

Shaman is at the fount from which they emerged; the N'Agarai chased Kitty and Peter back to Sentinel Mountain.
And I LOVE that Guardian on today's page! To me, that's quintessential Mac.

As I had Shaman note a while back, these are "mutant" N'agarai, but N'agarai nonetheless!!

Coffee and a page of Elsewhen. If I didn't have that to start my day, I couldn't function. So much detail in todays page, a pleasure to ponder over.
