These wouldn’t be possible without an amazing collaboration with Trudi Castle. Each of these comics are written by our very own Chris Bourassa and Trudi is bringing them to life. Trudi has an amazing portfolio and we couldn’t be more excited for this collaboration.

We are a week away from release! To celebrate we have another comic slated to release on Friday!

    So people cheer for him because they don’t know his true appearance?

    I don’t think they’re cheering.They’re sad because he’s leaving and goes to the dungeons,but he already lost all,so death is not the worst thing that could happen.But people are sad because he thinks like that.That’s what i understood.

    Who do you imagine the weeping lady is? A friend? Wife? Sister? And I wonder how voluntarily the Leper’s leave is. Then again, the way everyone attends his exodus makes me think he was some sort of king or important figure.

    I Think that this isnt a Sad moment per say. But a Man capable of accepting his fate and facing it, rather than fighting it and risking harm to his loved ones. Often time Lepers were sent away without question, many choosing to die rather than leave. But here I see a stalwart man whom perhaps left his home in an earnest venture to find purpose…and came across the Hamlet while upon this journey.

    Does anyone else see the fellow holding the crown in the fourth panel? This leper isn’t just some pauper, he was a king!

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

    Looks like it, but are they taking the crown away or putting it on? Could it be beneath the bandages?

    I took it as them taking it away. You don’t typically see people being given crowns for getting leprosy and leaving their homes. I figured he was a prince/king giving up his post to a new ruler and set out looking for meaning with the slow death sentence of his disease.

    The petals look like Sakura petals which symbolize the passing/fragility of life and how everything withers away.

    I think he actually says Petals Must Fall but the point is still there lol. I cannot wait to see the more standard characters again like the Crusader, Vestal and Plague Doctor. I feel they have them all finished, I think they are just holding out on us lol.

    Could be a king that chose to banish himself when he got sick with it?

    I think it is a big kingdom of Heaven refference with the king being a lepper and a poet in the movie. Hence the crown
