Still impressed

And we have our first action scene, well sort of. I have to admit that I was wondering how you'd do this part and I can't say that I'm disappointed.
Now I really can't wait until Gehn shows up.

@Jevasi: I'm looking forward to Gehn's arrival as well :D This comic is a new thing based on a story that is deeply nostalgic ... so I'm sure I'm going to disappoint different people at different times. But I'm glad you liked this part! :D

Yay for the "The Action Scene"! :)

are you going to make the comic exactly like the book? or will you change/add stuff? for example, the great shaft is called the well in the books. the entrance to the tunnels is different between myst v and book of atrus. are you going to change or add things or is it a pure adaption?

@thedstranger: Personally, I'm really attached to the original book and to the first two games. I prefer to look to them for inspiration for some things and others I enjoy reimagining.

I want to retell the BoA story in a way that is fresh and exciting. This is what I wrote in my proposal to Cyan:

"Rather than a direct copy, I want to reinforce the original themes, as I see them, by presenting the material with a new twist. Although I have altered several elements, the core characters and events from the book remain unchanged. "

So yes, my plan is to add/change things from the book (which I've already done in some minor ways) but maintain the main arc of the story.

I think you are doing the right thing in 'retelling' it and changing some elements.

I must admit I always thought it a little odd that when Atrus' explosion went awry - and according to the book, stunned him for a few - that Anna hadn't immediately rushed to his side.

Guess now we know why.

@Nagi: Hmm that's an interesting point, I hadn't even thought of that. That's true.

I'm glad you are okay with 'retelling' . I do try to make things clearer that were unclear to me ... but also I hope that it makes it more exciting for the audience because it feels familiar but at the same time you don't know exactly what's going to happen. The feeling that things are connecting, but in new ways.
