Attention Google. Endstone is fantasy webcomic. It’s also a comic book and graphic novel. In addition, it has post-apocalyptic tendencies. It has issues… literally and figuratively.
That’s nice, and also exactly what Cole needs. Too bad Thunderhead doesn’t really understand that. I suspect Jon does but feels he’s blown his chance to provide any sense of security for his daughter.
I think that’s a fair assessment Raoullefere. 🙂 Also, grandparents usually get to be more doting on children than the actual parents.
Kyri has a different relationship with Cole, I suspect: she’s the mama bear and clearly cares for her, but she and Cole seem to have trouble seeing eye-to-eye on some matters, especially cultural ones.
Cole was risen as a noble, -human- woman, while Kyri remains a wild deer from the forests of Pennsylvania. Kyri has missed ten years of her daughter growing up, so there is a rift she needs to fill to fully understand Cole.
Jon has a lot more work to do. On a conscious level, Cole certainly doesn’t hate him (after all, none understands what Jon went through while he rocked the Endstone better than her), but on a subconscious level she might find herself distrusting of her own father. On the other hand, they seem to be somewhat close, so I wouldn’t say Cole doesn’t like her father.
All in all, the Montaine-Thunderhead Clan is a pretty close-knit family.
You know these characters better than I do. 🙂
Ahah, thanks! You know, I like to write as well (nothing really serious nor high quality, but still), and I have noticed sometimes characters take a life of their own, and the author does things on a subconscious level.
So sometimes readers analyse the characters and notice stuff the author didn’t, though he probably knew on some level.
That’s cool that you are into writing. 🙂 And I agree that the author understands the characters on a subconscious level and sometimes the characters take on a life of their own.
For example this scene was not in the original script that Dan and I had written. As I was drawing it, Pablo and Cole went to this place and this scene “happened.”
So yeah, I understand what you mean. 🙂
Dan? Who’s that? I don’t think you’ve ever mentioned him (or at least not since I’ve been reading).
Dan Mellitz is my writing partner for this Volume. I mentioned it once in the text of the cover for Issue 13 (so I can see how you might have missed it. ) I help Dan out with his screenplays and he in turn pitches in for Endstone.
Dan’s brief bio can be seen in the “About” section.
I love the way that, despite having no face, you clearly manage to portray emotions upon Pablo’s skull! It’s awesome!
Thanks so much. 🙂 I’ve been doing studies of skulls lately to get Pablo right. I’m glad it’s paid off.
I have the feeling you probably did, but have you ever read Digger, by Ursula Vernon? Because she managed to make one of the characters in there, a statue of the god Ganesh, incredibly expressive by clever panel placement, angles and using shadows. What you’re doing with Pablo in order to convey emotions reminds me of that.
I have not read Digger but I am aware of it. It ended as I was starting Endstone. I remember being impressed and inspired by the black and white art.
If you ever have the time, then, I suggest you check it out! It remains one of my favourites to this day, and the quality is undeniable.
I will. Thanks. 🙂
Third panel, bottom bubble has a typo: previos->previous
Fixed it. Thanks. 🙂
