Chapter 17 Page 6

Hello Mother; Hello Father! Here I am at Fort Belfroi! Alays writes a letter, but it’s not to her parents… She’s a long way from serving punch at the Harp & Trumpet.

The wilderness of northeastern Everique is breathtaking (just like the Adirondacks of upstate New York which this is modeled after). See for yourself when you vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics!

    If I have it straight the Liranequois are equivalent to the Iroquois & the Elakanois are equivalent to the Algonquin or maybe the Huron. That makes the native/settler alliances equivalent to real history.

    Hurrah! Ald is back. The only honest man in the story. And he’s on the take.

    Bonjour, Alays! Looking genuinely snappy in that uniform. Stay safe, hon!

    Something that I continue to love in this comic, Eric, is your inclusion of women background characters as soldiers, sailors, and camp-workers–places where women aren’t traditionally found in period storytelling. I liked seeing them in both Viv’s cavalry and in the Morantine cannonade during the Vineyard Hill vignette. And the militiawoman by Ald in panel five is an effective touch as well. Thank you for this!

      Aw! Thank you! A lot of that is the work of Julian, the artist. I’ve encouraged him to include men and women in the background of all walks of life. He took the idea to heart!
      When you’re doing a historical comic, you have to face a lot of -isms. Sexism, racism, colonialism, classism, etc. Which -isms do you want to stress or downplay? I picked classism and colonialism as the focus of this story and minimized sexism. Racism is still there, but it’s more a subset of colonialism in this story.

    ah crap, now Alays has Allan Sherman’s voice. Thanks, Eric.

    Allo, ma mère! Allo, ma père! Je suis arrivée au Camp Belfroi!
