Pretty much the only consistent upside for him is how music is pretty in two ways.

If you missed your chance to buy a copy of the beautiful Cautionary Fables and Fairy Tales book that I did a short story for, now’s the time to make up for it! Available to buy online now, a book of fairytales, with contributions by Kel McDonald, Kory Bing, Jose Pimenta, Mary Cagle, KC Green, Kate and Steven Shanahan and Lin Visel, and myself.

    What a beautiful soul/spirit Wolfe has.

    I just realized: he’s making the audience’s spirits more peaceful as well, right?

    • Tatz

      It sure seems that way, although like others I’m still not sure what Jack sees is their spirit so much as their emotions… But I have to admit, I’m slightly curious to know what Jack sees when he looks at Wolfe regularly, that convinced him to travel with him. Wolfe seems like a decent guy, but all I’ve noticed Jack seeing before is negative emotional aspects…

      • Me-me

        I think you may have answered your own question a bit there, chap.

      • Ontogenesis

        I think Wolfe must have a peaceful/beautiful emotions/spirit in general, so that’s why Jack can tolerate (and maybe even enjoy?) his company.

        Lovely page. It’s nice to see such a fulfilling spirit as opposed to what we’ve seen so far.

  • wherever you go, let your spirit show, for it will glow better then you know, like a radiant halo. So bring friends in tow, it is brighter together you know?

    So be ready when that ill-wind will blow, so you don’t get got in the storm’s shadow.

    Find me on DA today, and just here to say I love this comic and Darken by the way.

    So, does Jack contribute to the performance?

    I think it’s less that Jack’s seeing their souls and more that he’s seeing their emotional states.

    Maybe Jack’s role is to deal with hecklers?  I know from my days busking that they can be total buzzkills.
    Also, this page is really beautiful, both visually and in the story it tells.

    • I guess he can also mind the money too so Wolfe can concentrate on
      playing without someone sneaking by and helping themselves to wayward
      coins…? Hehe, yeah somehow I imagine someone heckling Wolfe and simultaneously ruining the spiritual atmosphere might find themselves the sudden target of some rather sharp words from Mal anyways, huh? ; p

    I’ve always really liked the colors in Panel 5. Reminds me of a Chagall painting.
