001: Twilight Child

001: Twilight Child

Those leg straps are held up with magic.  Magic … and Love.


A bit of a montage to get things started.

The girl front and center is our protagonist, Shadow Manning.  She has an eccentric taste in clothing and is a little bit goth, but otherwise seems to be a fairly ordinary teenage girl.  The title of this webcomic is partly a reference to her name.  There are other meanings, one of which will show up on the next page.

If it weren’t clear, the figures on the right-hand side of each panel-row are all the same person, and he’s being illuminated by a flash of lightning at the end.

Title Reference: I like to make allusions in my titles, when I think of them.  Sometimes I will even explain them in a section like this one!  (No promises, though; sometimes I might prefer to leave them mysterious.)  In this particular case, the title of the comic is also the title of the Chapter.
