    Ooooooh, neat.

    Second that.

    Really liked having a villainous protagonist.

    I wonder if there will be more?

    I would bet the Bounty Hunter.

    That girl… was she saved, or was she sacrificed? We may never know.

    Flesh and Blood, Hell and Horror.
    Life and Death in their purest form.

    That’s… not anywhere nearly as traumatizing and/or saddening at first sight as the previous comics. The source of suspension is supposed to come from the ambiguity of the situation I guess, though it just doesn’t come across very powerfully. Not to me at the very least.

    My personal interpretation: she really, really wanted that incense censer that the cultist/monk/whomever evil baldie guy held, and I believe it contains some magic properties that may be attuned to the owner, seeing as the gas shifted in color after she killed the ritualist.

    I’d even go so far as to speculate she delivered that girl to the man, so she can abuse his trust and stab him, looting the censer in the process.

    Except the censer may be more than it seems. Maybe, to accept her as its new ownver, or to properly manifest its powers, a sacrifice had to be offered, and she made sure she was the one to accomplish it.

    Either that, or she went from a stoic merchant who dealt with the wrong person into a sudden heroic mode out of sympathy, and took the censer so it won’t be used by evil men again.

    The censer got enfused with the sacrifice, only it was the cultist, thus making me believe that the girl in the white rag was saved. Hopefully. Otherwise the censer make it’s wielder stronger with each soul it consumes… Still the girls should be saved, if not, that would make the Antiquarian a real scum. Hope that’s not the case.

    Hell yeah!
    That scene is a recurring but still awesome swordnsorcery theme, like that the extend of her motives and morality at the end is left open.
    Dig her design btw, anatolian/persian inspired?
