Pg 96: Conditional

This Week in Epic Fail:

Yeah, like that was going to work…

Creator’s Commentary:

So I’m back from hiatus, sorry about that. I’ve been having really chronic migraines roughly 50% of the month on average so pretty nasty, it’s made it really hard to get anything done let alone the comic. In turn this has impacted my depression, anxiety and LDs, but … (although I don’t want to count my chickens before they are hatched) I seem to be going through a ‘good patch’ at the moment and this may be due to improving my sleeping conditions (blackout curtains, memory foam mattress topper & pillow, using ear plug when it’s noisy). So there is a good chance of disturbed sleep (even very minor disturbances) being a big trigger and possibly things like neck/back tension. So I will see how things go and hopefully it will be a permanent improvement. It’s a bit early to say however.

Hope you enjoy the new comic pages and shenanigans with Amuletts and Loki. Patreons: Uh, yeah, I kinda did a bit of a revision. Check the Epic Fail patreon page to see my totally chaotic artistic process.

 

Pg 95: Are you talking to me?

This week in Epic Fail:

Yes, you are being spoken to through the fourth wall

Creator’s Commentary:

Sorry this is a bit late. Hot sunny days not good for migraine (top reason Loki and I wouldn’t get on. God of fire? Noooh! Too bright!)

In other news Loki hijacks my story. Did I want him to do this? I can assure you I’ve been arguing with him trying to persuade him not to, but he is a chaotic deity and I am merely your humble author…

Pg 94: Loki Entrance

This week in Epic Fail: Amuletts meets Loki.

Creator’s Commentary: Get it? Loki entrance?

So I find it amusing that Amuletts immediately loses confidence. Also that Loki is really sarcastic XD

He’s coalescing out of smoke in this scene. God of Fire and all 😉

Perhaps I should take this opportunity to discuss Loki’s hair. As I’m sure many of you will be aware Marvel’s Loki (portrayed by the lovely Tom Hiddleston) has black hair, but Loki is often portrayed as having red hair because this is the colour associated with fire. In Norse mythology his hair colour is not confirmed he is simply described as ‘handsome.’ To a Viking well kept blonde hair was considered handsome so quite possibly Loki was canonically a blonde. Of course being a shapeshfter he could probably have whatever hair colour he pleased.

I’ve gone with literal firey hair.

 

Pg 93: Deal or No Deal

This week in Epic Fail: Amuletts wants to deal.

Creator’s Commentary: I started using the red and black in the background as a bit of visual excitement. Then I realised I could use them as part of the action.

Amuletts is good at making deals (although whether she can rival Loki is yet to be seen), however she is generally not selective with who she makes them with.

Pg 92: Elven Fetish

This week in Epic Fail: Amuletts dismisses Minerva as a Crazy Cat Lady with an elven fetish.

Creator’s Commentary: So I wanted to show a cultural difference here with Minerva thinking the cat was exotic and exciting because it was Elven and Amuletts thinking, well that’s just a bog-standard, regular cat because she’s an Elf and grew up with them (probably..).
