Only took you 55 pages to make your introduction, Harry.

Just to state again, this story’s coming to an end next week, and I could do with some help from some of my art bros! I’d like to run guest strips for a week or two while I buffer up the next story, so if anyone could send me something I’d appreciate it! Email me at kojiro_muyo@hotmail.com :)

Transcripts

(Still seated in the deactivated circle, Sid rubs his wrist where the mark has vanished…)

Sid: There, all taken care of!

(He stands, noticing the ongoing swordfight. Harry is holding her own, pushing Macavity back onto the defensive more often than not.)

Sid: ..oh, that! Don’t let me interrupt!

Macavity: Who th’ hell are you, girlie?
Harry: (taking the pipe from her mouth with her free hand) A hunter.

Harry: Also, a smoker.

(She blows a lungful of smoke into Macavity’s face and takes advantage of his surprise to smack him hard with the blunt side of the blade, sending him sprawling across the table.)

Harry: And I don’t much care for kings.

Harry: (pointing her sword down at Macavity) Harriet Barber.
Harry: Pleased to meet you.

So who else noticed Harry turned her blade around to hit Macavity with the dull side in panel 5?  Very nice touch–as a fencer myself, I really appreciate little details like this rather than, say, a melodramatic anime-esque bit where the hero really obviously turns the blade backwards. 

Oh yay, I’m glad that worked! I was kinda winging it, I know next to nothing about fencing which is something I should really change!

Well, if you ever have a swordfight again:  especially with relatively light weapons like these would be, quick and understated moves typically work best (they’re faster and so harder to catch) but are less dramatic.  For a good balance, see if you can find some movie swordfights coreographed by the late Bob Anderson (Princess Bride, Mask of Zorro, etc.) or an old Errol Flynn movie to use for ideas.  My only real criticism (and only if I really look hard at the page) is that the swords seem a little short–most duelling sabres would be longer, probably around 3 feet long or just a bit longer, although this is highly variable.  It kind of looks like they’re fighting with skinny machetes :)

Very nice conclusion to the fight- as a fencer, I have to agree with rgelok30 on the quick flip around.  Can’t wait to see the finish of this arc and to see the next arc on this one.  You’ve come quite a long ways from the start of your first webcomic- keep it coming, Kate!

I think this somehow made Harry even more badass, gonna be sad she’s not in the next chapter.

What!!!!!!!!! She’s not in the next chapter. “Say it isn’t so, Joe.”

‘fraid not, Harry and Sid will be out for one story! They’ll be back though :)
