Mias and Elle Chapter4 pg022 by StressedJenny Mias and Elle Chapter4 pg022 by StressedJenny
See it's symbolic, cos they are all pricks. :3

(I wasn't really going for that. Just had to joke away the ominous-ness.)

Each word, a thorn on the mind. Each thorn a tear in the rift. Each rift a solemn promise that returning home is more dangerous alone.

Well Elle, time to decide if he means it or if 'if anyone else finds out about you it'll be sooo much worse' is a ploy....

I personally believe him atm, but it's a very convenient fact to make you compliant, eh?

Figuring out that your kidnapper is the least bit of crazy and that his family is ten times more crazy.....
Does make one wish for the exit door all the more, though finding it while you now know a entire death crazed family might be nearby
Will make it all the more harder to realize that wish....

Others have commented far more eloquently than I can about the amazing artistic merits and symbolism of this image, and I agree. I simply have to add my appreciation for how you so elegantly wove the exposition into the frame, subtly guiding the reader's eyes with the black, prickly vines. Instead of a plain wall of text, we get a story quietly emphasizing how dark and thorny and convoluted Mias's world actually is. Masterful storytelling, right there.  Clap

He's gone from calling her "petal" to "rose."
Sounds like some character growth!

True. But currently he's the lesser of two evils. One where she stands a chance at going home alive. His intentions here don't nullify that. He's still a prick though.

Think from his point of view. Her previous statements made her feel like she had some leverage over him. If she were to try to act on that, not only would Mias not have a way out, but she would be tortured and eventually killed. He's saying this to quench that fire, to put the idea of leverage out of her head. This is him simultaneously being selfish and selfless (though probably more of the former). For both their sakes, she cannot try to run or try to be found. Mias is a douchebag.

I mean; he's the one with magic in the family portrait. Doesn't that make him the most OP?...

I must be missing some form of logic where spears and knives are a threat to spells able to shape the land itself.

Maybe that's why he's locked up? Maybe his family is scared of him?
Then again, Mias is sealed in with magic--so at least someone has to be able to use it to a degree besides him.

Yeesh . . . Thank the heavens *that* hasn't occurred yet. Very poetic in delivery too.

Also despite what he says he and his family are, doesn't sound like Mias takes much pride in the notion.

I don't know. Things he has done that before seemingly had no meaning are now making more sense with the exposition we're getting. I reread the comic from the beginning with the knowledge we have now, and have been constantly saying "OOOOHHHHH". Cuz Jenny is the exposition master.

I don't think not telling her had some deeper meaning, I only blame his ego and carelessness here. Can't wait to see why he did the rest of stuff though.

Would you be happy If someone walked to you
Enchanted you with a vision telling his whole life story?
Would you still go with that person?
A normal person would run away screaming!
Mias outsmarted those people by kidnapping them! :)

Daaaaaang. I can't properly put it into words that other people haven't already said, so suffice to say, it's very good. I gotta tell you though, I love the line, "They will want to keep you and your wide eyes and your pretty name, and your blood and bones." It's just beautiful and terrifying all in one. Much like this page.

I love how this is artistically describing the prospect of rape and violation. (At least, that's what I gathered from some of his choice words.) The degradation, the way his family is just built to carve away any sense of humanity. It goes so far above the previous page, which depicted acts of extreme, but ultimately simple, straight forward violence - and takes it to a whole new level of wickedness. Especially how he describes their curiosity over it, too. Reminds me a lot of Dark Eldar from Warhammer 40k. The idea of taking all manner of control and freedom from another human being, and making it your own - just to see how they'd handle it.

I also agree with one commenter above; who mentioned the rose petals. The blooming flower of womanhood in this dark and clearly depraved place she finds herself in. It's fantastically poet; brilliantly displayed. As much as I love so many pages in Jenny's comic - this one, with so little visually going on - says so very, very much.

I love it. 10/10. Please, keep up the good work Jenny. You are absolutely amazing.
