Well good morning everyone, and sorry to start the week off on such a sad note.

Damn...I wasn't ready for that this morning. There's been death in the comic before, but not like this. This was an innocent life starved out by unspeakable evil; but not before he used the last of his strength and courage to risk seeking help for his people. I don't think The Light will forgive him...I think it will embrace him and set him at it's right hand along with Crusader Bridenbrad, and it will honor their individual courage forever.

I don't know if it was the emotion of the circumstances, the tender grace of Arua, or the fact I'm sick as a dog this morning, or all three: but I thought the first two panels were the most striking I have seen from you in the comic. The lighting and shading; the pure expression of emotion, especially the sadness of Panel 2, in Arua's face; the agony and desperate longing in the dying gnome's face; all the elements come together in those two panels to deliver an emotional hammer blow.

And I find it not mysterious at all, and indeed immensely satisfying, that in his last moments he recognized and understood exactly who and what Arua is.

Arua knows her mission now. As another of my beloved heroes once said: "No more running. I aim to misbehave."

This and subsequent pages have a good look to them, I respectfully disagree with the comment that the digital background clashes, methinks it's a good blend, nice work.
