On one hand, he's free! On the other hand, he's never going to see his family again. :(

So basically James needs all the hugs.

You're so. Freaking. Good. At showing emotion. No words or dialogue required, just facial expressions and poses that make this comic great.

And just to add a little sucker punch to the gut, on top of all the seriously heavy farewell angst here, there's also the fact that George and Claus weren't really listening to James in the first panel, and I don't know if they've noticed that he's lagging. I don't know. It's just the small things. I guess. The details like that. Because when you're having a terrible moment like the one James is having, being mostly ignored at the same time doesn't help.

I don't know. I resonate with it.

EXCELLENT page, Kelts!

Thank you! It's really a shitty time then and there, but it doesn't last too terribly long. It's a rollercoaster of a night.

His "Thank You" is directed towards Claus and George, by the way. If it weren't for them, he'd go right back down into the cave.

At first he doesn't understand why. He's just tall, right?

But he'll know soon.

I know it's been said but I just really love the way you do emotion. Just. Ugh. <3 The expression and ambiance just have such a powerful impact, no explanations are necessary.

Thank you thank you! This means so much to me! As great as dialogue can be, it really halps to take some quiet time to tell the same story. C:

No don't take it negatively! It's a good thing to draw out feelings from a reader through your comic! And like I said crying is healthy. You have to let it all out. Thank you <3

That first panel reaaaaally put things into perspective. It's kinda weird...I thought his sister was the type who would make a reappearance...
zoido 22nd Jan 2016, 3:10 PM edit delete reply

We get back to her eventually.

I can't just introduce characters and never use them again. C:

Just a little tip. In the panel where he's waving, the panel should be flipped imo. because in all previous panels he's looking a certain direction but then with the waving panel because of how everything was set up looks like he's waving at George and claus. Just a very minor fix. The rest came out well though great work!
zoido 22nd Jan 2016, 6:44 PM edit delete reply

Alright, thanks!

I don't see it myself, but I'll fix it somehow. Sorry if you were confused!

Your facial expressions are so great, there's a perfect moment of silence right here that really helps the reader become more immersed in the story and sympathize more with James <3
