Turns out, this is actually the reaction people have if you come to their door and demand to know where they're hiding their magical fantasy creatures. Last time I do field research for this comic... :P

I love the understated quality and the awesome characterization Skrael brings to her art in these scenes. A fantastic story only works to the extent that the mundane works, and Skrael makes it all hang together.

We'll be back on Friday, humans!

I wonder what these two were expecting her to say. They thought she'd just blab the secret right there? XD

If it were me, I'd wait and follow her to some place secluded where she couldn't call for help. (Yeesh....that sounded REALLY creepy, didn't it? ^^;;; )

Not creepy. Practical!

(... though I concede that the guy whose webcomic periodically goes into full-on horror and who is a fan of Scorsese crime flicks might not be the best person to ask :P)

This is actually a pretty stupid approach for more reasons than one. If a teenager with an attitude lets you follow her to meet a giant dragon that let her ride it and talked to her without trying to eat her, chances are she's friends with it and just leading you to it so it can eat you.

Clearly, McCann and Sullivan took intelligence as their dump stat. Oops!

Heh, Nightsky is absolutely right. These two bigfoot chasers really couldn't have picked a worse person to try and intimidate.

It might be a valuable lesson in trying to threaten a teenager, though!
