#343 | Chapter 10, Page 5 Posted by: Clownfish Studios , January 17, 2014 Share! Tweet Kneon D’OH! Surprise! Show of hands: Who saw this coming? some random viewer o/ zgrssd Since he was first shown as a shadowy silhoutte. Bobismeisbob back in chapter 6 (pages 19 to 20) where it cut from Rhen talking about the Marquis to Marek talking about his cover. 🙂 But I only noticed that when re-reading it. When reading it day by day that was a lot less obvious. Kneon That’s one of the disadvantages of a longform webcomic. It’s like watching Star Wars 30 seconds at a time over the course of many years. Bobismeisbob Yeah in another one I was reading I completely missed that a character was a mole but when re-reading that arc all in one go it was meant to be blatantly obvious. I think you’ve got a good balance here. Gallie Well, Rhen and the gang did already save everyone from attack, so we knew some shoe was going to drop from Xzavier’s retelling to explain what happened. Insectoid Easy enough mistake… Marquis = Marek… Kneon Marek is the Marquis of Melisende. …. Try saying that five times fast. zgrssd Was hard to get that countryname right at first. But I did say it five times afterward. What do I get? Philip Bourque He has an eye scar… Why do they always have eye scars or disfigurements of some kind? Kambrea Pratt In his case, there is a reason. Philip Bourque There’s always a reason. It’s one of the many ways an artist can demonstrate that the character is evil or bad-ass, depending on who’s side they are on. The last time I saw a villain who could be described as aesthetically pleasing to look at (no scars), he was a weak-willed coward who was very good at hurting those weaker than himself, but when faced directly with conflict he fell to his knees and begged for mercy. It’s something I try to avoid in my own comic. LuRa Witt He’s secretly in disguise. In the end, he was actually an evil lion from another dimension.
