    I love the lighting in the last panel, the effect looks like lithograph which is cool!
    PS, hooray for free archives!

    Digger’s curse “blood and shale” really hits hard… especially when you know this song:

    Thanks so much for that link John, very illuminating.

    God I love her nighttime artwork, this page is masterful!

    I like the way Digger is practical even when blaming herself. She doesn’t blame herself for missing the prophesy, because there is noting relay she could have done about that except to read up on ever mention of “The peacocks tail” ever. But the equipment… could have done something about that.

  6. TekServer says:

    I wonder if the prophecy would have done Digger any more good if it had simply said, “make sure you are well-equipped”?

    I always just assumed it referred to shale collapse, wih which the song doesn’t seem to disagree. Thanks for the song reference, John! And how would proper spikes have prevented this happening? All that would have done is given them a potential way out, unless they were all ted together, and Murai and Digger would have simply pulled Grim Eyes down into the crevasse. It is good that Digger realizes that she was being an idiot earlier, but I fail to see how the equipment they could have had would have prevented them falling or Murai’s arm breaking. Herne /did/ say it was too late in the season, and Ganesh wasn’t exactly giving Digger three-fourths of a year to go to the dwarfhold.
