A few more puzzle pieces falling into place! Rector Nolte will be back next week to explain how this second mention of the local Roman occupation gets us to the wolf statues around town. (Here’s the Notes section on that first mention, for those who need a refresher.)
In related news, I’m working on the first ever Family Man side-story. It’s about the worst thing Ariana’s ever done, and how she ended up working in the library. Right now it’s just a first draft script and a couple of sketches, but I’d like it to finish it in time to be an “extra” in the second print volume.
Here’s a little drawing of Ariana as an older teenager (click to view). It’s always very strange to draw these characters in color!
