For some months now, I’ve been scanning Wendy’s original art pages, before delivering them to Columbia University’s graphic novel archive collection.

And now, in “Final Quest,” Ember is grown up, a chief in her own right, with concerns of her own that… Well, you know I never give away anything that could be considered a spoiler. Let’s just say, after finishing up issue #2 and sending it off to Dark Horse earlier today, the juxtaposition of then-Ember and now-Ember is stunning.
