Issue #11 (Chapter 7 in the Green Book)
- Page 3 -- This would indicate that Soracia is used to, on some level, emotional or spiritual pain, yes?
- Page 6 -- from the Cerebus preview, the original caption on the
second panel reads, "Careful honey, I expect it has teeth"
- Page 17 -- "I sat in a tree and just stared at it from across
the battlefield." Are they on opposite sides, or the same side
way back then? The fact that she hunts Quinton down to ask him a question
later implies they weren't mortal foes.
- Page 17 -- Even after 100 years, Soracia's pictures turn out
"ugly and horrible". Does the Queen of Halves lack
creative skills to the same extent that Quinton has them? Or is she just
too harsh on her own work?
- Page 18 -- Soracia says Quinton was like Ben. Ben, we're told, was
instantly talented in anything he tried to do, and for that reason could
do anything he set his mind to.
Does this really seem that consistent with the Quinton we have seen?
Always trying these weird things, and frequently having plans go astray.
Is he not clever, just ultimately creative?
- Page 20 -- Ramanious cannot enter Cespinarve Rogue's dream, but he's
supposed to be dead. Has he somehow come back to life? Or is he perhaps
a ghost? (UPDATE: Ramanious is just sleeping... for the moment)
- Letters Pages -- There is a connection of sorts between Ben and
Rubel, but M'Oak isn't sure if he'll get around to explaining it or not.
- Inside Back Cover -- The second reference to Thieves and Kings
T-shirts being a possible future item. Hell, I know I'd buy one.
