Glyph is worse than some and better than others. He believes that life is just one damned thing after another, that only pop music can save us now, and that mercy is the mark of a great man (but he's just all right). Nothing he writes here should be taken as an indication that he knows anything about anything.

    Last week, I (like many of you) found the art to be jarring.

    This week? I can’t imagine anything else. The scenes with Lyta were *PERFECT*.Report

    • Glyph in reply to Jaybird says:

      There was a nighttime sequence in Part Two (when Lyta wakes up from her nightmare) where Carla appears to have much lighter skin, a blue (rather than red) tint to her hair, and differently-shaped eyes. MAYBE you can put down the skin and hair to “night” lighting, but I found that really distracting – until Lyta calls her by name, I thought it was a new character.

      Also, there were a bunch of “Nob”‘s in your piece that I fixed to “Hob”‘s. 🙂Report

      The more fantastic scenes with Lyta (and Delirium) are well-suited to this style. Maybe even Loki and Puck burning Daniel, too.

      Everything else… not so much.Report

    Overall, I do not like the choice of art style, but there are some panels in these issues that I do really like. The shadow squirrel when Loki is telling his story was a nice touch. The image of Morpheus disappearing into snow is one of my favorites (actually, at a point in my life when I considered getting a tattoo, that was a strong contender). There are also three panels of Lyta at the bottom of one of the pages, just her face with no dialogues, that does a great job of showing her mental state.

    I do not think it is ever mentioned explicitly, but Lyta Hall was the superhero The Fury. Her mom was the original Fury, as well as an avatar of one of The Furies. This is one reason The Ladies take such an interest in her.Report
