    Panel 6… get some sleep dude ;)

    At least his heart is in a good place. I mean, the earlier conversation encourages us to dislike him but he’s truly concerned for the people of the village.

    Hopefully they didn’t meet travelers on the road and discuss how a pale kinslayer had wondered into their village considering the reward… then again, I wonder if they wouldn’t seek the reward themselves.

    That wall scene reminds me of a similar one that leads off The Eagle, with Channing “The Hulk” Tatum.
    He’s also in Comrade Detective.

    just binged through the comic so far – you are doing a fine job.
    personally I like your storytelling more than your artwork, although that ist fane also – but it shows that you work very hard on it and obsess about it….dont know if it should. But the story and the worldbuilding is superb.

    If you really try to capture bronze age – and you are not doing a bad job so far – the architecture could stand to be made less angular, more handmade.
    Platforms not made from cut boards, but woven sticks, Ladders or stairs not linear, angular, regular but put together by whole pieces of wood shaved and put in place with as little material manipulation as possible.

      Saws and wood split into planks was a thing. Also, planks were smoothed using adzes and planes. It just depends on where in the world you look for bronze aged architecture.

        @Marc Tompson
        You are right, there where saws.
        Wood with stone or bone chips for most, Bonze ones for the rich households and communities.
        Have youe ever worked with a bronze saw?
        I have – experimental archeology construction site. Bronze is quite soft!

        I worked with softwoods, mostly pine, and you had to resharpen the saw about every 100 to 200 pulls, when it stopped cutting. So sitt down, take a whetstone and painstakingla genewing the edge an every sawtoth. Took about half an hour and worked the bronze blade down quite quickly.

        So – cutting of wood to even angles was expensive and time-consuming. you only did when structurally necessary or to impress – both not really an issue with a watch platform that could mainly be made simple from cut lumber.

          Point taken. Yes, that would be a ridiculous amount of energy for something as simple and utilitarian as a watch post.

    SukSukPootie and Marc Thompson are a very high class of thoughtful fan. That you attract such is telling. Kudos.

    Is the story still alive? It’s certainly proving to be a long while between updates.

      I’m sorry. It’s not dead. Thank you for sticking with it so far, Anne. It means a lot to me. The next page is actually about halfway done. I want to finish it. I just have some issues I need to work out.

        Yes I know what you mean, – life has a way of happening when you don’t want it to Marc. I’m glad you’re still working on Kinslayer as your artwork and storytelling is absolutely first class.

        Glad to hear it!

        Since every page is a free art-present to all of us internet-leeches I wolud not an d cannot complain when your “real life” interferes with you working your ass off to entertain me….

        Buuut…
        Yeah, I would have been somwhat dissapointetd to see this project die.

        Take the time you need.
        Set up a patreon or tip jar if that helps. I would certainly throw some change your way.

        But hey – I`m glad you still want to make it work. This has potential, from the storytelling and the artwork side.

    I’m not commenting much here but I’m happy you are still working on it. Take as much time as you need to tell your story. I can wait for a good story and I guess the good folks around here are patient enough as well.
