This is the page for which the “Breaking Point” title was originally chosen – with Staghelm added as a catalyst I decided to move it around, but this particular moment has been in the plans since pretty much the start and for all the changes around it.. the point with it is still pretty much intact.
I still haven’t gotten over just how immense the response to Hani punching out Staghelm has been – for me it was never more than a step on the way to reach this point; the whole reason I even came up with it in the start of this year was because I felt my standing reasoning behind this page wasn’t solid enough – I needed a working reason for why this happens. All options I came to either seemed too shoehorned or like they said too much.. until I came to think of Staghelm. Then everything fell into place.
On this particular page itself – I’m aware that it can be a little confusing whether the top right pane should be read before or after the second row – I noticed that myself when I first put it together. That said.. I chose to keep it as is because I honestly don’t think it matters which way you actually read it – to me it seemed to come out the same no matter what.
