I have been asked to choose three pages and write a few words about it, so I chose to showcase the pages that best describe the tone of the story. In the first part of the story, High Mage Nicodemus has been sent by his king to free Rage, a creature made by the Gods thousands of years ago to kill demons. As Rage tended to kill humans too, the Gods imprisonned him in a mountain, where he still lies to this day. In this page, Nicodemus has found him and is going to free him under conditions. I needed this dialog between the two main characters to clearly establish what their relation will be.
Rage is free and under the spell of Nicodemus. He can’t hurt anyone unless Nicodemus allows him to do so. But he kept his free will, and Nicodemus left him alone for a little while. In a previous page, it was established that after being imprisoned for so long, he needed food, drinks and girls. So Nicodemus took him to an inn. In this scene, I wanted to make clear that Rage definitely isn’t a good barbarian. Gods actually created him as the ultimate caveman, and he is mostly a nightmare waiting to happen.
I didn’t quite know which page to choose for this third page without spoiling surprises. So, here is a beautiful splash page showing Rage and Nicodemus entering the Fortress of Kahel, which has been taken by demons a few months ago. Rage is going to fight Master Demon Torg, the bad guy of the story. The image speaks for itself.
