Malaak II p29 by Majnouna Malaak II p29 by Majnouna
I know, this took forever. Believe it or not, I hit a major art block and I'm not so sure I'm out of it yet, but at least I got this done!

No comment. Someone's going to be pleased as hell :giggle:
Adrian's facial expressions are lost in the jpg, but oh well. We'll see them in print ;)

By the way, the salt-against-jinn defense is authentic! Thank you *Marie-Aude for mentioning a while back that salt is used to turn jinn away in Morocco even today. That didn't fall into a deaf ear.

Cool that Adrian's been armed and that he can see the jinn. This rocks. I'm hooked again.

It's wonderful. I'm getting a little closer to doing mine as every panel also teaches me more about how to do the Three Dead Punks. Your work is in a class with Sandman and the art comics for me, the ones that I go over again and again to study the art after I've reread it again just to enjoy the story. Both the story and the art are so brilliant.

You're welcome. It's well earned. I think your work deserves world distribution and mass marketing, and I hope it takes off online in some viral word of mouth wave. I'll be doing my small part of that when I buy Volume 2 and probably feature both.

If you make a graphical widget with both covers and a little blurb about the story, I can include that in my review with a link to your buy page... that may help spread it around.

Sorry for the belated reply, but what's a graphical widget and how does one make one?

Uh, I think I meant a thumbnail and a little text under it as a static image. Now it's my turn to look at the date of the convo and cringe!

salt?

that's like in Europe, you'd throw salt over your left shoulder to get demons off your back.

I had forgotten about that thing in europe, it seems salt is a universal cure for bad spirits :nod:

Nice metaphor. Along the lines of "teach a man to fish", but the cultural subtext of "give people the chance to help themselves, and watch how they grow" is great!
Or am I reading into things too deeply?
Also, I still can't shake the feeling there's something between them, intentional or not. But that's me and my crazy fandom, that's all.

Very astute! You hit the nail on the head, at least for the first part, but the funny (or uncanny) thing is that the prototype really is this way about Japanese swords.
As for the second, I've heard that remark textually from some of our friends, not speaking about the comic :lmao:

cool...Adrian has a sword of salt...and he looks like a dork welding it. hehe Don't get me wrong I love the idea, but I think I would have laughed too seeing him playing with it like that too.

I think this comic is gonna get even cooler...if it even can...its already too damn cool as it is!

I love Malaak's look in the second to last panel. Her eyes are just a piercing sort of green with that wonderful hair. It looks great! :D
