- Empower and guide- I will destroy this world...- Bringing an apocalypse- The pithos amulet- Fun with words- The controlling of Dex
There are a few reasons Raven is having a flashback here instead of just jumping back to Friday with a narration box, but I'm not gonna say what those reasons are. I will say, however, that the description of panel one in my script for this comic was "Raven looking like a grumpy pants".Way to go, Erasmus!
When I was deciding on a design for the amulet, I decided to do something totally crazy and actually research the Pandora's box myth in greater detail. Nutty, I know. As a result of this madness, however, I learned all that wacky fun info in panel two and got to draw a jar instead of box, which was awesome. Boxes are only fun to draw if there's one or more cats inside, and a cat wouldn't have been mythologically accurate.
What's that, spellcheck? "Mythologically" isn't a word? Well, guess what? RIGHT CLICK! ADD TO DICTIONARY! BAM! It's a word NOW, ain't it?! HMPH!
Anyway, apparently we know the story as "Pandora's Box
" because some guy translated one Greek word as though it were another Greek word. I'd give him a hard time about it, but it happened back in the 16th century, so he's probably dead by now. That, and I've seen Greek text. I probably would have made a mistake or two myself.Noah's hair
I haven't received truckloads of questions about it, but some people have asked about those strange tufts of hair under the hairband Noah normally wears. If you think about it, it was a very fair question, and now it has been answered!
Sort of. I guess this raises further questions. At least we get to see his hair without it being tied back for once.
