One of the most bitter-sweet things about making comics is slaving away drawing a page and then having to cover up that art with word balloons. Although, I guess being bothered by that depends on whether your consider yourself an artist/writer or a writer/artist. I'm definitely the former.
Anyway here's the latest update without any word balloons.
The Realm Of Eidz
One of my favorite parts of making a comic is creating the world it exists in. And since a lot of travelling happens, in A Near Myth, its important to always know what lies ahead and what's been left behind, geographically. It's for this reason that one of my first chores, when creating ANM, was to build a map of the realm of Eidz (sounds like "sides"), where the story takes place. You may have noticed the impression of this map in the background of the site, in fact. While I'd developed it mainly for my own reference, I have always planned to share this map with any curious Myth Heads out there, so here you go.
