SPOILER-- Nice foreshadowing Kahvi. I guess Cutter is going to be spending more time in the Palace than he expected. I wonder what "the dream" is about? This whole storyline seems like a prologue. It sets everything up, puts everyone in place- and I think it ends well. Good job, Wendy Pini! I also love the artwork- in this issue especially. None of the characters seem posed stiffly or for the reader- they are all in natural positions- as if half captured in movement- that are typical of old-school Elfquest. And the detail is lovely. Really lovely.
