Here is the Intro page for Issue 2.  I like the orangy color but the orange and black combo makes me think of Halloween so I might alter it.  I begin each Issue with a synopsis.  I lifted the narrative flourish from the great Cormack McCarthy book Blood Meridian.  I read it the summer before I began work on The Enchanted Dagger and I’d consider it influencial.  I’ve since re-read it so I definitely like it.
