A huge thanks to everyone who’s kicked in on the Patreon. You’re a huge help to the continuation of NTO and also the PWS side project.
The detail you put into your panels is amazing.
Thanks for the update.
I love this guy. He’s so stylishly badass.
‘Till death do us part’ – Vane’s back, but both of them clearly consider it over. One has to admire John’s perseverance given that he is interupted every time.
I’m not sure he wasn’t into the odd dalliance with others even when he was married, so perhaps he’s merited that jab for a long time. In any case, wonderful characters, and I really like this new woman. Hope she’s in this for a while.
I wish I could be this smooth with the ladies
So, is Hunter just feeding this lady a smooth line…or does he really feel that the Ms. Black persuing him isn’t really, well, Vane anymore? I’d normally think the former, but John Henry was looking away from the seamstress in Panel Five, and there was such genuine feeling in his expression…
On a related note-if Erin gets any better at her craft, I might have to stop reading for fear her creations will reach out and pull me straight into the Internet. Seriously, the characters here are richer and more complex than most real people I know…
We’ll she’s sure not smilin anymore. I feel that when your wife is hunting you down to kill you, even the chivalrous villain is unlikely to consider themselves obligated to check their wandering eye.
Love never really goes away when it get’s cut off early like I believe happened. I know there’s women in my past I remember wistfully with a touch of regret that they’re no longer with me. But I pursue the one I have with happiness and enthusiasm all the same because what’s in the past is in the past and it’s better to keep moving to the future.
But I think JHH would say it better.
The silent pin in the shoulder as an even better rejoinder than I expected (as usual). And the way she is looking right at him after, pin in hand, eager to see his response, shows this woman not only can take care of herself, but is also quite engaged with life. JHH’s expressions in this page are beautiful, and nuanced; the tilt of his grin and precise shape and size of his eyes in the second cell had me admiring for a long time. And I love the way she goes right back to her work, eyes concentrated, when she tells of her loss. That focus reminded me of Vane in a number of other passages… John Henry is drawn to women of intensity and skill.
And those last cells (lovely passage with the rose, including the shapes of the divisions) have me wondering what she saw – how MUCH she saw. Did he let her see the ring and the rose? Or did he let them show by accident? Or is she special? Or does she mean less than I’m suspecting? There are those sparks still flying in the very last cell… Like fractals, your story has all these nested units each of which leaves us eager for the next one, willing to wait and sure to come back for more. Chapter or page, – they all end with something that teases us on to the next one. I feel like I’m reading a gripping page-turner… in really slow motion. As always, thanks for the pleasure.
Thank you, Erin!
