I like this direction, it's more entertaining than just dropping the facade right away.

Hello

This page is so... calm, compared to the last one.

29 Aug 2016 | 12:22 AM

Jeanne flails and stabs reflexively as Annie removes the arrow. Andrew is run through and dies. While Jeanne is freed into the ether, Parley becomes upset and vengeful just as Jeanne did while watching her lover die, becoming the new ghost of the annan waters.

LET'S ALL JUST SPAM "RUH ROH" ON EVERY PAGE, THAT ISN'T UNIMAGINATIVE AND STUPID AT ALL.

Noooo! No flipping! Flipping bad!

i like how jeanne's first reaction in this page is to be protective.

29 Aug 2016 | 12:31 AM
Chris

I gotta say, while I enjoy the story line, this is just getting to be bs stringing us along... 4 comics now since she reached for the arrow, (2 almost completely focused on just showing her almost touching it) and she still has not touched it... Anyone else to the point of "Come on already!"?

29 Aug 2016 | 12:32 AM
ambersz

Uh-oh.... How does Jeanne know Parley's name? Last time she said "Cheri"

Oh-no! Poor Jeanne... I suppose we're due to find out, exactly, the terrible nature of the thing that was done to her :'(

29 Aug 2016 | 2:42 AM
Lightshade

I find it rather sweet that even though Jeanne's being torn apart mentally, she still thinks of George as her friend and clearly wants to protect her. That may come back to help the group if/when she escapes from the illusion, she might be reluctant to attack the first person who's tried to befriend her in hundreds of years.

It's a name so you don't have to change anything, just telling you that it's traditionally spelled "Georges". Also it's kinda a male name but nvm that. So yeah, just that, I'm hype as fuck for more, keep drawing you hero.

29 Aug 2016 | 4:58 AM
Crimson Wyverary

Oh gods, is that a Nobody in the bottom right-hand corner? (And I'm not saying that Zimmy is involved in this) Wait, what if Jeanne isn't the problem, but was guarding against said problem? Is that the "something" Jeanne refers to? If it's really bad, worse than a "psycho rage ghost of hate", then Annie, Kat, Parley and the others better be even more careful than before. This could be even worse than we originally thought.

29 Aug 2016 | 5:46 AM

That monstrous disfigured blob of flesh in the corner isn't creepy at all! I'm dying to know when she's going to figure it out.

29 Aug 2016 | 6:09 AM

It would sure be nice if Jeanne broke the illusion but still thought George and she could be friends. Wouldn't that be nice? I think that'd be nice.

29 Aug 2016 | 7:54 AM
Amy

Oh my god - she still thinks Parley is her best friend and is trying to protect her. Ouch. As for lurking guy in the last panel, I think he's just a sign that Blue's illusion is falling apart and her background people are getting sloppier - look at the scrambled features.

29 Aug 2016 | 8:07 AM

Now THIS is interesting. The illusion stays put but she knows something's off. It's like The Matrix for ghosts. #FreeTheGhosts

29 Aug 2016 | 8:13 AM
Shiny

To answer what @ambersz asked, I think Jeanne always knew her name. Cheri is a French term of affection.

29 Aug 2016 | 8:17 AM
DavidDahlbacka

The pacing here is just right for those who are reading every month or so and don't have to wait two or three days for the next page. The rest of us just have to embrace delayed gratification. It's called "suspense", and frankly I hate it. I'm one of those guys who looks ahead to the end of the book to see how it turns out. Can't do that here. (Grump.)

29 Aug 2016 | 8:23 AM
TwilightBoy

This page makes me wonder how much of Jeanne's protective feelings towards Parley are her own, and how much are manufactured by Red and her friend's magic. And I swear if that's Annie's dad and he screws this up...

29 Aug 2016 | 8:26 AM
Vezera

Those aren't just the illusions falling apart under strain, are they?

29 Aug 2016 | 8:47 AM
Jeanne

Wait, Who are you and why is there a girl named George?

29 Aug 2016 | 8:48 AM
Cass

Oh, I like that the one thing that doesn't seem to be cracking here is her thinking that George is someone she cares about.

And here we were having such a nice time. So who let in Typical Reader?

This was an unexpected twist! Thought it was all going south for a moment there. I can hear Jeanne say Parley's name with an accent, "Zhhorzhe"--which is charming. Jeanne was such a beautiful girl...*sniffle*

29 Aug 2016 | 9:24 AM
Neoviper

I feel like the only way out of this situation is for Jeanne to be provided something to defeat. Maybe Blue creates something for her that in Jeanne's mind explains the disturbance and lets her seemingly kill it to restore things. Of course that might just cause her to go full on ragemode, but nothing is exact.

29 Aug 2016 | 9:35 AM
Jeremy

Poor Jeanne. The fact that the Court would trap someone in such endless torment is truly damning.

Questioning

Is that Jeanne's lover, released from the riverbed by the arrow being pulled by Anne? Now finally together again, Anne will be able to take them both to the ether after Jeanne gives them some details about the Court that the Court would have desired to be secret a bit longer...

29 Aug 2016 | 10:37 AM
Mimic

I haven't said it so far, but I'm going to say now. I like how red is depicted as if being a guy. I find it really hard to imagine fairies to be anything but gender neutral. Even the girly ones.

29 Aug 2016 | 10:51 AM
^_^

What I really wanna know now, how much can Blue put into other minds? Is the protectiveness coming from Jeanne? "Of course it is," says my heart. "But we don't know," says my mind. Everything else not so important now. Not even marmalade man. How could marmalade man have a bad impact? @Jae: How could you brake the mood with such a joke? Please continue :)

Yes, for the latecomers, Parley's first name is George. See #385.

@ambersz "Cheri" is a French term of endearment.

29 Aug 2016 | 2:37 PM
DonovanDermot

if that purple haze image is a nobody then it might stand to reason that Jeanne's soul is the tie that the Court is using to start the flow for their ether experiments. We already know that the Psychopomps(Muut and friends) can't touch help her. maybe as a spirit she is essentially bring life to the root that the Court is draining the Ether with(think Zimmy's rage at the not-right-rain)

29 Aug 2016 | 2:41 PM

I love how for 5 pages now everyone has always been expecting a big fight scene on the next page, and it just NEVER COMES.

29 Aug 2016 | 2:52 PM
Katie

Okay, so Jeanne sense's Annie's touching the arrow... but instead of seeing Annie, she sees an image of Tony with vague hints of Annie's hair? Is that how Annie looks in the ether now? Cause that is CREEPY

29 Aug 2016 | 2:54 PM

Ohh noooo!!!!! But at least maybe Jeanne will be focused on this other guy instead of on the fact the others are fooling her?

I'm going to guess that the newcomer will be revealed to be Jeanne's old boyfriend, since everyone else capable of joining in Blue's etheric illusion is accounted for.

Crap, did they put a security system in place to guard this thing they've set up against tampering? I'm so worried. Also I'm so impressed with Parley! Just hanging out and chatting with the deranged, violent ghost who once tried to kill her, no big deal.

29 Aug 2016 | 6:51 PM

That... certainly is something that is there. Et il ne semble pas agréable...

Marmalade Man. Blue. Gotta love the names readers give!

29 Aug 2016 | 7:30 PM
trlkly

It's my interpretation that we have gone back in time a small bit. It would have taken Annie and Kat time to find the location, get Annie in the boat, go to it, and then actually go down into the water. So Annie is not there grabbing it. Though I suspect she can't pull it out anyways. Not on her own. Jeanne is also dangerous outside the Ether, but she couldn't grab it. I suspect it doesn't allow it to be pulled out by an etheric being.

29 Aug 2016 | 8:25 PM
Zimmy

At least she still trusts her friend. But things are about to get Zimmy. "This world has been connected...tied to the darkness...soon to be completely eclipsed..."

29 Aug 2016 | 8:54 PM

Holy jeez! She's separated the two parts of Jeanne, the way Antimony did with her anger! :o This is insane!
