Talons-that-Seek shakes off the shackles of slumber and names Jassart his spirit dancer. See the fire manitou take flight when you vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.

I’ve added Balticon to our list of conventions for the summer. I like this convention. It’s a sci-fi/fantasy literary con with lots of great writers and some incredible programming.

IT AWAKES! Will this be a problem for Jassart? See his reaction when you vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.

A big applause to Philadelphus for predicting the dialogue on this page. That was amusingly on point. I got a huge chuckle out of it. It made my incision hurt, but totally worth it. Also, a tip of the hat to all of you who mentioned the proximity of fire as necessary. That’s part of the solution, but not all of it….

Since I now know I’m going to be around to travel this summer (Wheeeeeee!), the convention line-up is solidifying. I’ve added Awesome-Con, Otakon, and Baltimore Comic-Con to the convention schedule.

The pages for the next vignette by Robin Childs are starting to roll in. You all are in for a treat.

Mathilde dresses for the kill when she visits Cienan. Yet he seems unconcerned. What does Mathilde have planned? Vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics and see for yourself!

Steph and I are back from Indigenous ComicCon. What a great show! About 1,000 people attended, which is pretty good for a first-year con. Things went very smoothly. Lee Francis did an amazing job organizing it. I wanted to go to ALL the panels. They were that good. One of my favorite was run by Jonathan Joss, who is the voice of John Redcorn on King of the Hill and plays Ken Hotate on Parks & Rec. I’m looking forward to going back next year!

On a humorous side note, the cramp in my calf muscle was so bad that TSA picked it up on their scanner and had to pat down my leg every time I went through security. One of them even commented, “Man, that’s a serious cramp.” It’s doing much better today. It’s almost gone. Just a bit more stretching.

Oh no! Fraud and malfeasance! The threat is in the air. Hanging there. Waiting to fall like a sword. Mathilde is not one to take that lying down. She breaks out her best weapon which you can see when you vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.

I went to the doctor this morning. It is indeed a severe muscle cramp from overuse. I guess I shouldn’t have carried the sleeping 6-year-old from Cinderella’s Castle all the way back to the hotel at Disney then sit in a cramped airplane then go back to my running regimen at the gym. The leg is feeling much better. I need to stretch it, roll it, and take some Ibuprofen.

I wish over-the-counter pain medication was more descriptive for what it actually does. I get generics and they’re all labeled as “pain relief.” Well, what kind of pain? That matters! The answer is to look for the active ingredient. Here’s my handy cheat sheet. There are some overlap, but this works well for me.

  • Ibuprofen – muscle pain and cramps
  • Naproxen Sodium – swelling and inflammation
  • Acetaminophen – headaches and fevers

Indigenous ComicCon is coming this weekend! You really should attend if you can. Or grab their virtual pass! Steph and I are going as Sponsors! I’ll be taking my camera and a ton of pictures. It’s going to be a great show.

Cienan and Mathilde continue their courtier dance. The knives are out. What’s at the center of it all? Vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics and find out.

I almost didn’t make this post today. I’ve been doing a lot of exercising at the gym. I’m going for a lot of reasons — almost all of them health-related. I don’t talk about it much or post photos of it because this is personal to me and I don’t really feel like sharing it with the world. Anyway, I must have overdone it last week. My IT band was cramping horribly since Saturday. This morning was really bad. I couldn’t walk. I’ve been stretching, rolling, soaking in the hot tub, and taking ibuprofen. I was able to do something between a hop and a limp to get over her to the computer to do the update.

Indigenous Comic Con is this weekend! I really hope I get my leg straightened out by then. I’ll be attending the convention along with Steph and I’m really looking forward to all of it!

Hello everyone! I’m back from my trip to DisneyWorld with the family! It was a great 4 days to be separated from reality. Now it’s back to a whirlwind of social media and politics. I’ll be posting some thought about that on the Facebook and Twitter feeds. For now, we’re switching scenes to another surprise visit! Cienan smells a mystery, and he can’t resist a mystery. Mathilde gives Cienan a withering glare when you vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.

November is Native American Heritage Month! It’s also the month of Indigenous Comic Con! Snow by Night is a proud sponsor of this convention. Steph and I will be heading out to meet all the artists and attend all the events. It’s looking like a super great show. Even if you can’t make it, ICC has a Virtual Con Pass! It’s a great way to participate if time and finances don’t allow for it.

Jassart is not happy with that mask. Not one bit. He is happy to see Vivienne though! Their relationship continues on the sly. You get to see a tender moment when you vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.

A quick refresher. Antoine Dupuis is a savant at the university. We last saw him on Chapter 10, Page 16.

Indigenous Comic Con is coming up! Snow by Night is a proud sponsor of this convention. Come join us in Albuquerque in November. It’s going to be an awesome gathering of native artists and native-centric stories. Lee Francis of Native Realities has put together quite the show!

Snow-by-Night isn’t the only spirit with a mortal body, as Pénélope is ready to face the mundane world on Chapter 13 Page 30. Cienan’s words of warning fall upon deaf ears of her excitement.

This concludes Chapter 13! I won’t be posting on Monday for the Labor Day holiday. So next Wednesday begins the vignette How We Decided You’re People! as Told by Toothy Kit, Wisdom-in-Training. Unlike a lot of the vignettes, this story takes place during the timeline of the main narrative. And if you like Toothy Kit, you’re going to love this vignette. If not, Elk will be around to offer commentary.

The artist for this vignette is Mittie Paul. I thought her style fit the over-the-top style of Kit’s storytelling. And I was right. See for yourself when you vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.

Steph and I will be at Baltimore Comic Con this weekend! We will be at Table A305. I’ll be there with Snow by Night things and Steph will have her Final Arcanum things. Come by and say hello. We’ll have deals on books!
