Theories On The Miracle...

On one panel, it looks as if the silhouette of Iris in the balloon changed completely from panel to panel. To me it looked like she changed into a different person as she told Colby about the whole dream world. Maybe she turned into Esurio, maybe it's just continuity...

curiouser and curiouser.

is there no end to the Z-man's famed creativity? *falls over in a swoon*

maybe this has been addressed before, but since I've had visitors from Europe and haven't been to the forums in goodness-knows-how-long, has anyone bothered to ask the Z-master how he was originally inspired for this storyline? (*aside to the Z-man*) or would the answer to that reveal too much about the forthcoming plotline? eh?

*sits down to marvel over the curious complexity of it all*

oh - and one more thing.

is it just me, but is that ominous black cloud in the distance (see pg 83) remind anyone other than myself of The Nothing from The Neverending Story?

heh, krank. i bet even THAT would fit into your whole Dream-Reality theory....

In response to Tar Baby's questioning the similarities to the neverending story , I think this story kinda parallels Miyazaki's "Castle in the Sky." I mean they both have a girl that falls from the sky with some creepy guy chasing them and now Iris and Colby are in a balloon that's about to go into the ominous cloud. That's similar to the two kids from castle in the sky hitching a ride with sky pirates and heading into the thundering cloud mass.
I'm sure it's all just coincidence, as the events are similar but the stories differ greatly. Keep up the good work Jim!

Well, Tar Baby:
Many, many people have seen the Neverending Story (and a lot of us have read the book it was based upon - recommended, since it makes the movie look like shit and tells a much more likable story about growing up) so obviously it's had an impact upon the Dreamscape..

well, yeah...i guess so. and yes the NES's book was way different and much more complex than the movie. but i guess i'm a traitorous goon - i like 'em both. la.

but now this cliffhanger has my curiosity *really* piqued....i'm still really really curious as to how Blake, our "accidental tourist", figures into all this. i'm waiting to see if he emerges as a pseudoEsurio or as that King he's always dreamed about. my guess is the latter. any takers?
he hath not so much brain as ear wax
