    gotta view this one zoomed in to get the full effect. its really quiet something!! Did you mean to create a face in the flames in the first panel?
    Your work never fails to entertain me.

    I’d not heard of Comfort so I went and looked her up. found it quite interesting. some of the stories I read were:
    According to some accounts, Comfort was a beauty who had the misfortune of becoming the mistress of an arrogant and hardhearted Colonel Buck. When her looks began to fade and he tired of her, it’s said, he arranged to have her accused of witchcraft. Defenseless against the enmity of her former lover, she was quickly convicted and condemned to death.But other tales claim that the victim of the black hearted frontier bigwig was an unattractive crone who was typical of the victims selected for persecution during the wave of witchcraft hysteria. She was old, eccentric, lived alone and without friends or relatives to defend her. Still other legends painted the victim as an Indian woman whose husband had been shot in the back by Colonel Buck during a quarrel. According to some depictions from that era, Comfort was burned at the stake and her former lover personally ignited the wood piled at her feet.
    Poor Comfort! I agree and also say RIP Comfort Ainsworth.

  • “Poor Comfort” was nearly the title for this one :-) Glad you like this one. I like using multi-paneled layouts for larger prints, a nice mix of traditional and comic styles which I really enjoy.
