HAHA! Lets do the Warp Box agaiiiiin!

I wonder who's over Maytag's right shoulder... Looks like it might be Fata Morgana.  I'm thinking Brion has missed drawing the full head and body 'cos he's going to let the colour artist have some fun with it.

I can't wait to see what this cover looks like colored. :D

I'm also really curious about what the warp box is...

Heh what a page.
We see Bern is safe.
Also Crest and Glyph in a bit of a situation here.
So Glyph was taken out as first, damn sandwiches.
And all of them were asleep till now, I can understand why Bern and May were nude, but why Crest and Glyph were undressed also?
I can't wait to see Crest reaction when he will wake up.
Also I hope this isn't Fata illusion this time but with Bern as testing subject.

Maybe they put roofies in his sammich.
So this is probably a clue that he's not involved with these guys.

Imagine...Crest wakes up, his head hurting...and sees there's a naked guy next to him.

She doesn't look chibi to me. Her eyes are wide with shock/surprise.

Well, at least they had the decency to put her in a separate bed.

I find it somewhat amusing that the three of them are in a cell together, as if those three are the three they don't need to worry about at all.

Actually... Crest might be wearing something.  There's sort of a square off under his neck in the 3rd panel.  I'm actually still not certain what to make of Glyph but I guess this shows that Crest was knocked out after his discussion with Danzig as well.

...Then again, this could all be an illusion to test Bern this time.

Also I doubt Bern was alone in that bed, I think that Suspiria was with her before there, before she was taken for examination.
But still this looks like a nice room not a rundown cell where May was, so it might be an illusion.

I also vote for illusion, but I have not really any clue...
We will see soon...

It is odd that Maytag is alone out in some shabby forest hut prison while Bern, Glyph and Crest are in a room together.  Not to mention that Suspira was considered special enough even before Melter arrived, to put her in a private room on some sort of examination table rather than in a comfy bed.  If it was some sort of special prison to reduce or restrict her magick talents I'd expect Glyph to be in a similar room (to be on Qtalda's team he's surely a lvl3 sorcerer of talent).

*LOL* it'll be interesting to see how much of that bath incident Bern remembers.  Not to mention how a magick user like Glyph handles the capture if he's woken and still able to use his powers (surely he is can't he'd have an inkling of knowledge as to what might be blocking/restricting his abilities).

We might even discover something more from Crest who may have been left awake a bit longer.

Hmmm I wonder what the comment about the castle means...
The castle seems to exist for real, since we saw it earlier in the series, as Brion pointed out...

hmmmm, tough one.

Suspira was one of the first to notice something funny about the castle.  Crest noted It had no windows.

I guess the entire outside could have been an illusion with the doorways using those image portals to enter it and move between rooms that could be anywhere on Ischariot.

still... Maytag wouldn't have a clue what Crest and Suspira went through in the stairway so I'm not sure how she could have figured anything out.  And she's looking at something from where she stands so there must be a good illusion in place.  I wonder if she's managed to see through it or work out something wrong with the picture.  Shadows and reflections from the sun could hint her to an illusion.  Even the wind not moving the leaves and bridge.

I wonder what would happen if she strayed from the path.  Not sure on the purpose of the mural.  I can only guess that its hiding the castle behind it and they're not going through a portal but a doorway in the illusion to reach the castle hidden behind... still holding out for Bloody Mary to catch Maytag's scent and come into this mess.

I'm sure Brion already has a million e-mails and PM messages but 1st, 3rd and 4th panel all show or hint at Maytag's left arm returning... I swear these are collectors items if you can get to them before Brion changes them... gonna be a pain for him to change the 3rd and 4th panels.

Hmmm... that's pretty cool. I like use of illusions in this arch. Illusory magic is such a big part of D&D, but you so rarely see it in fiction nowadays.

The Regine illusion talked about something called a "Dark Cell".
It seems to be pretty dark in there, whereever May is now. Could she have been tricked into this Dark Cell?

hmmm, so Moss enters the darkness, stands to the side and tells her to keep moving... Hard to say.  I'm more thinking that they're just inside one of Fata's illusions and it's a thick one for whatever reason (probably don't want the wind blowing down a wafer thin illusion).

Looking at the newly coloured cover (looks awesome Delusion), it certainly seems that Fata might be involved again in this chapter.  I guess we're still stuck wondering as to what Moss' other reasons for helping them escape might be.  He also made the comment that Fata truly doesn't care that Maytag and Moss know each other.

All up I'm hopeful that this chapter will shed some serious light on the whole debacle they're in.  I guess the first page already showed us what happened to Bern, Crest and Glyph, while these latest pages of travel might actually be leading to something else significant behind this mural.

Other than that, Moss is his usual dick of a self.  Hehe, "can I hold your hand"  :P
