Ouch. H-Guy surely has one big blabberflabber of a mouth.
That is not a good way to greet someone after many years.
Especially the bit about the kid. Moms are a bit sensitive about their kids.
Its more commonly known as teenage years. 😛
Dragonson – Yes. Like most people with a quick wit, sometimes Herrik goes a little too far.
Zixinus – Thanks for stopping by. 🙂 Yes moms are sensitive about their kids and I find this is one of the more difficult aspects to the writing of Endstone: how to portray a hardened warrior who is also a mother.
Vampirebunny – exactly. 🙂
I can see the problem and sympathise. For one thing, there is little literature about the subject because its a rare event. Most mothers stop being warriors when they become mothers, unless they don’t have a choice.
I for one, was rather surprised when she was able to punch her own kid (or that she needed to do it that much, I mean, doesn’t she know how to disable a person? of course, I know that then it wouldn’t be dramatic).
Great questions. 🙂 Actually, Kyri stopped being a warrior but had to come out of retirement once Jon started rocking the Banestone and he tricked Cole into stealing the Endstone for him. There’s a very intricate back story that will slowly unfold as the story progresses. In fact, next issue (number 4) will deal with much of this back story. The story will run this summer and will delve into how Jon and Kyri met, how Cole got the Banestone, and most important how Kyri became a warrior and rocker of the Endstone.
As for Kyri punching Cole, my interpretation was that Kyri had a great deal of experience battling the rocker of the Banestone (Jon and others from the past). She knows there is no reasoning with the insanity so she needed to press her advantage of surprise against Cole. Plus, Cole, with the Banestone, is practically invulnerable so Kyri knew she couldn’t really hurt her. Kyri just wanted to distract Cole until she ran out of power. At least that’s what I was going for. I don’t know if that was lost in the presentation. And yes, it is more dramatic to have big punches and kicks so that plays into it as well. 😉
And thanks again for the questions. 🙂
Oh, so Cole is invulnerable while wielding the Banestone? Ah, that makes more sense then. I didn’t get that, but then again, her being hit into a brick wall without suffering injury should have clued me in. 😉
I would have written her trying to hold back tears and the point where she is at tears when Cole finally runs out of energy and asking her gently to come towards her. But that’s just me. I think that doing that wouldn’t fit well with the rest of the comic’s style.
I like that idea and in hindsight I definitely would have done something a little more emotional with that scene. Oh well, I’m not one to go back and there will be more opportunities to play up the emotional aspect as the story progresses hopefully. 🙂
I think you did it right. As hard as it may be, Kyri is in warrior mode when she’s fighting Cole, especially since Cole is so dangerous. Mother mode had to be pushed down so she didn’t get too distracted. If I’m not mistaken, there were some tears in her eyes during the fight, when Cole tried to pull the “Mother, what are you doing?” act on her.
Thanks for stopping by Matt. And I’m glad the scene came across that way because that’s what I was going for basically. Actually I added those tears based on Zixinus’s suggestion. Hopefully it’s a good balance now.
So, beating her daughter to a pulp was just giving the naughty girl a derserved spanking, scaled up to over-stone levels
