I really wanted the ladies to be expressive here -- especially Kathryn, who's been self-consciously under-expressive in places.

I didn't know quite what this page was going to be when I started. I had considered cutting the Smiley/MacKnight bit and moving Smiley's line "She's going after the body." to page 15, and making this powerful moment of Kathryn's coming face-to-no-face with her dead self a 2-page spread. I'm glad I didn't, because I love Smiley/MacKnight scenes, and I love the triangle composition I used here (thanks, David Mazzucchelli).

This isn't something Kathryn does a lot as Artemis; she tends to think of herself as more or less disposable. Here, she sees herself destroyed yet respected; covered in a sheet, cause of death to be searched for, a cross drawn on her.

She may not matter enough to herself right now, but she clearly matters to others.

She doesn't always let this touch her, but Erica is way ahead of permission and thinks Kathryn's self-destructive habits are stupid. And they are. And Kathryn knows that, but she likes to pretend she's too cool and lost to know it.

Her annoyance in the last panel has less to do with Erica's revulsion and a LOT more to do with Kathryn's realizing that if anything is going to connect her to the world, it might just be brash, big-hearted, tough-talking Erica. And sometimes you don't want to get to know the people who might save you.

I think this is one of the best pages so far.

As usual, COMMISSIONS ARE OPEN! Send me a PM, or hit me up on Facebook or Twitter. My rates are reasonable -- don't reason a cow.
