Ever wonder what our hero does during downtime? Well, as it happens, we’re doing a crossover of sorts with one of our good friends Professor Etheric (who once did a series of voting incentives for us and as luck would have it, again for us on both Exiern and Dark Reflections with some really great images he completely devised without any input from us for April 2019 – check them out, they’re really great!) as well as his team on the webcomic Autumn Bay.

Ideally, we’d recommend going right to the beginning of this excellent multi-layered and intricately constructed tale to get the full effect of all the twists and turns and surprises but if you don’t have the time at present to read the whole archive to get to this point, you can see this scene with dialogue here first and then go back to the beginning.

At least not too much will be given away if you do that but I’d advise against reading below the image and especially the comments in order to not give away too much more if you still want at least some of the surprise to remain intact as to who this is if you then go back to the beginning of Autumn Bay at that point.

Professor Etheric’s artwork has definitely improved in leaps and bounds over the years and we’re definitely the beneficiaries with this month’s voting incentives which were totally devised by him without any input from us. Hence, they were as much a delightful surprise to us as we hope they are for the rest of the audience.

Art for this image, though is once again by the excellent Marshall Reeves whose webcomic Yesterday Bound is also a must see and you should check it out if you haven’t done so already. Sean Harrington of Spying With Lana actually did not contribute to this page either.
