The Morantine force Pieter’s hand. The time of study is done. We must experiment! See Pieter explain his experiment to the others when you vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.
Speaking of experiment, I had a hernia operation last Friday and boy does this hurt. It was an incisional hernia from my operation back in January. My liver kept slipping out between my muscles and pressing up against my skin. It was as unsightly and uncomfortable as it sounds. I’m back home, resting and recovering. I’m going to be a bit slow for the next couple weeks, but it shouldn’t affect the posting schedule.
Pieter faces off with a Morantine recruitment party that doesn’t want to take no for an answer. Pieter’s something of a pacifist and wants nothing to do with this. Willem and Pieter share a look, as you can see when you vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics!
The ’Ringo Awards are replacing the Harvey Awards at Baltimore Comic Con. Mike Wieringo and his comic Tellos were an inspiration for Snow by Night with it combination of fantasy adventure, intrigue, and romance. I would be super-grateful if you would consider nominating Snow by Night for Best Webcomic. Nominations are open to the public until July 18!
The Morantine are coming! The Morantine are coming! Hide all your manitou and spies! Coming next week, Pieter confronts the Morantine. See a preview when you vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics!
Trouble is coming on the next page. Please vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics to see the group’s reaction.
I find it interesting to see how comics and prose can tell the same story and show the same scenes but subtlety differ. If I was writing this as prose, the last part of the page would have gone like this:
Snow reached up to touch Blaise’s face. The gesture was more analytical than romantic. “You have more fire now than when I met you.”
Blaise trembled at the touch. “Snow, I…”
Snow-by-Night put her fingers up in front of his mouth to stop him. “Blaise, stop. No. Do not ask for what I cannot give. You will only get hurt.”
Blaise blinked at the warning before answering in a small voice. “Oui, of course.”
The two continued to sit under the stars for some time. The clouds drifted across the sky, the windmill continued to spin, and the moment slipped away.
It’s time for a brief reprieve from Science! As Snow and Blaise have a chat under the stars. This moment of tenderness and reflection continues on the next page as you can see when you vote of Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.
Steel is stronger than iron. Pieter firmly believes that this is true in more than just metallurgy. So much so that he’s prepared to be a student of a different tradition. This theme is one that is woven throughout Snow by Night. Combinations are always more stronger than their component parts.
Up next, Blaise and Snow get some alone time. See for yourself when you vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics!
Steph is heading to Denver Comic Con this weekend! She’ll be bringing with her the brand new Volume 1 books! No more chapter books for Volume 1. We now have a sweet, sweet trade paperback that’s 172 pages long and comes with a brand new vignette!
*EDIT* No page update on July 3 in observance of the US Independence Day. We’ll see you on Wednesday July 5!
