#98 – “Come Sail Away”

And so we start chapter four. Chapter three lasted longer than I had initially had expected, largely due to several moments of it ending up extended for a greater emphasis on certain elements or themes. I’m expecting subsequent chapters to be a little shorter, but I’m not aiming for a specific length. The overall layout already is (and has been for quite some time) in place, though the details will no doubt be tweaked before they’re finalized.

I don’t have a retrospect written for chapter three yet – I actually don’t know if anyone ever found them interesting so I’m not sure whether that’s a loss or not. I’ll try to think of something before long for those interested. It’s been over a year since the first page by now, and we’re coming up on page #100 next week. It’s been an interesting journey so far, I’m rather curious how far along the schedule things’ll be in another year or so.

    Congratulations, you have managed to give that “Oh come ON!”-feeling that shows a really good movie/comic/book ( Although you re-awoke my great hatred for the arch druid while you did it ) and which will hopefully give a chance for revenge ( Right? Pretty please? ).

    Great work with comic! I am really looking forward to see how this will be solved!

    Great job, you really got my attention woth the comic right form the start, and you still have it.
    I’m really looking forward to a scene with King Varian and Tiny. :D

    I don’t think King Varian will be in it, since this is supposed to be pre-WotLK (so you said, right Nhani?) thus Stormwind is still “ruled” by Anduin Wrynn.
    Loved every single page of the comic so far, and I definitely won’t ever stop reading it! Keep up the great work, Nhani.

    Hahaha wow, I love that song from Styx and I don’t think anything else could have been a more appropriate title for this issue, especially with it being the start of a new chapter. That or maybe I’m looking too much into it!

    Looking forward to more updates, Nhanub!

    Hani and Tiny really give this feeling off ”will we ever see home again?” as the ship sails away, really touching.

    and why is Te’len so sad? she feels guilty over what she said to Hani? or she just sad that she got ”suggested” to leave the city?

    considering her personality id say being made an exile must be a tough one

    I expect she finds both situations to be very painful.
