A hard-earned morning comes for Blaise on Chapter 9 Page 26 as do some other travelers in the woods. This group has been waiting backstage for 9 chapters now and it is time for them to come onto the center stage of our tale of colonial fantasy. To see what the Liranequois do next, please vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.
We’re almost to the ned of this chapter. The coming vignette is illustrated by our gloriously talented colorist Naty Baaklini. She will be helping me tell a story about Vivienne and Jacqueline and their recent adventures on the contested border between Morante and Saronne. Oh, it’s going to be fun.
I’m on a roll talking about mythic things like manitou and malignant spirits. I thought I’d give some more information about another Great Spirit. Knorre (KNOR-eh. the k is pronounced) is the great spirit of crafting and artifice. He’s also the patron spirit of Kleef. Kleef is the mother country of Meerpelt, where Blaise was headed. What could this possibly mean for our story?
In other news, I was re-lettered A Life So Free. I was never entirely happy with the font I used for Peyre’s letter. It was difficult to read and that’s not good for a webcomic. I changed it to Quahog from Blambot which is what I’m using as the caption font for Chapter 9. It has a good weight to it and its easier to read. Enjoy!
Paws-Tread-Lightly shakes Chugan until he explodes on Chapter 9 Page 25. Wait, Chugan does what? I guess he’s his own murder.

Chugan and Paws-Tread-Lightly continue their confrontation on Chapter 9 Page 24. Weakness is reason enough for Chugan to come to collect what he’s owed. Paws disagrees. To see a preview of Wednesday’s page, please vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.
I’ll be at Annapolis Comic Con this Sunday. Come by for great comics and a fantastic show.
This week’s almanac entry is Paws-Tread-Lightly. Our fox spirit is a spirit guide who gives counsel to others while keeping his own for himself. He’s a friend of Snow-by-Night and now an advisor to Blaise.
MANITOU FIGHT! Chugan and Paws-Tread-Lightly face off on Chapter 9 Page 23. All the while, Blaise is wet and freezing. To see a preview of Monday’s page, please vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.
I’m pleased to announce that Snow by Night will be attending Annapolis Comic Con. This is a smaller, local convention in Annapolis, Maryland. Come for the comics; stay for the crabs! Or oysters. Oysters are delicious too and have a small guest role in the comic.
