Chapter 11 Page 18

September 1st, 2015

Mathilde visits Jacqueline on the upper gallery on Chapter 11 Page 18. The two seem to be forming a tentative alliance. Hopefully, their relationship will be healthier than Jassart and Vivienne’s.

We’re back to Blaise on Monday. To see what is the focus of his scene, please vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.

Chapter 11 Page 17

August 30th, 2015

The scene shifts back to Sherbourg and the Harp & Trumpet for Chapter 11 Page 17. Some readers commented that things were getting a little tense, so on this page, we get another of Mathilde’s cabaret skits to lighten the mood. They’re rife with bawdy double-entrendre. Jacqueline hasn’t experienced much like it. To see what Mathilde does next, please vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.

Almanac – Three Sisters

August 27th, 2015

Today’s Almanac entry is the Three Sisters, which are maize, beans, and squash. These three plants grow well together and when eaten together give you all the nutrition you need to survive. Maize is missing a couple amino acids which beans provide.

As the entry discusses, the plants thrive in close proximity. The companion planting of the Three Sisters developed by the Native Americans was a brilliant agricultural practice. These three plants supported the growth of their towns and culture from the deserts of the southwest to the seashores of the northeast and everywhere in between.

Chapter 11 Page 16

August 25th, 2015

What? Another page already? How did that happen so soon? Coming back from vacation is always a rough re-entry. Anyway, Snow-by-Night refuses to appear upon command on Chapter 11 Page 16.

Why does the manitou not appear? Is it she doesn’t have the energy? Or is it she doesn’t like being summoned like a dog? Or maybe she doesn’t like the current company? You be the judge, as Snow keeps her own council.

Our scene shifts back to Sherbourg on the next page for some fun with Mathilde. To see her next skit at the Harp & Trumpet, please vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.

Chapter 11 Page 15

August 24th, 2015

Whew! I’m back and I’m here with Chapter 11, Page 15. In it, we see the Toothy Kit Translation Service in action. She translates intent over┬áthe literal meaning. To see a great preview of Kit and Blaise together, please vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.

My apologies for the slight delay on this page. I wasn’t happy with the lettering job on this page and didn’t have time to reletter it before I left. It was family vacation time — our first family get together since Elise’s passing. We went on a Disney cruise since that is the perfect intersection of what a little girl would put up with and what Grammy and Granddaddy were up for. Wow, Disney does a good job. The children’s center on the ship is amazing. Disney child care and children’s activities is beyond description. Charlotte also ran me ragged migrating between the kiddie, the water slide, the hot tub,┬áthe deep pool, back to the kiddie pool… I may post some pictures on the Facebook page. It’s easier to upload pictures there than here.

The Volume 2 books arrived while I was gone. I’m going to start the shipping to Kickstarter backers later this week. Next page is tomorrow night.
