You can probably tell which panel was the one that took forever.  I really need to stop underestimating things like that.  And yes, to make up for it I shamelessly clipped out part of one of the first pages for the second panel.

On the bright side, after scrapping the idea of the whole thing being more talking heads, I got to draw something that wasn’t actually going to be in the comic.  Pretty pleased with how it turned out if I do say so myself.  So hooray, sword-priests!
