Ohhhhh some more specifics about this change Keymen keeps talking about X))).

You might recall the death of human Jonathan and Shera's threat to Hizruk---those two things might lead to something perhaps with the help of her Grandfather who seems to have a history with serpents :3

Merek obviously knows how to make a speech here. I'm gonna guess everyone will sign back up...well, everyone that is present in the room anyway.

Yesss it's not about the quantity of speeches but quality, I suppose! That's a pretty good guess! :D

Merek makes some compelling points, and I hope that even if some don't want to renew their contracts, they won't go running to the Council.

That would definitely throw a wrench in the plans! Merek has deemed these guys pretty trustworthy and he's a pretty good judge of character!

Uncle Merek spitting some hardcore truths! I wouldn't know what to do if I were them. And I more afraid of the council or of being a part of a flawed, corrupt system?

(Sorry I haven't commented in a while. Been very busy.)

Oh! Now is it time for the riot?
Seriously, though, I wonder if their new loyalty will be to the people and not the government.

WHOA if I didn't know better, I'd think Merek was the influence behind Hizruk's rebellious side! Are you really ready to start a war on two fronts, Merek? O.O

It's one thing to see how bad the Council is through the actions they've been taking throughout the comic thus far. It's another to hear Merek outright state what's been going on in places that we've never seen and might never get the chance to - it really shows how widespread the rot is. Sure, the Council's important and huge, and we already know they're awful, but this gives their actions a magnitude we didn't have before. Just how big IS the serpent nation? How many lives are they actually destroying here? We still don't know, but it's many, many more than we really comprehended before. This page does a very good job of hammering those facts home, and Merek is the perfect spokesperson with which to deliver this information.

He tells a good speech. I approve.

I'm also loving the imagery that you're showing as he's giving his speech - there's a couple things here that we've seen for ourselves that you gently remind us of with the pictures (hi, Jonathon and Shera and Shera's granddad! And the execution, ow.) and some other things that are completely new - but you get the idea that the other umbra know exactly what he's talking about, even if they've been lucky enough never to see it for themselves. The cutaways to them that show what they're thinking clearly showcase that. The news about the war might be new, but they know a war is necessary.

Liking the panel of Keymen and Merek versus Demas (that is his name, right?) and Kalverick. Perfect. It really showcases who's up against who specifically here.

Ah, hello Takeo and Abbaline. Welcome to the party. You're on the losing side, sorry to say, but you'll probably be great fun to watch nonetheless!

I am a fan of how Merek puts quote marks around the word 'loyalty'. Yep, that pretty much sums up the situation right there.

Two favorite expressions on this page: Merek's 'it's time for a change' panel, and then Baron's solo panel in the second to last line. Perfection at getting those emotions across.

Haha Merek doesn't speech often.... he has to make it count! At least everyone is paying attention, amiright?XDD

But it's true...we have seen how awful the Council is mostly through the viewpoint of Hiz and what he's been through...and Merek, and some little hints with Keymen. Buut we haven't had a chance to see the depravity widespread--thanks to Merek Brigade things don't seem that bad in this distract for the common folk .. as he mentions "the safe environment WE created" XDD

And thank you so much I'm so happy the imagery works! Sometimes it's nice to have a little refresher...as well as a hint of things to come X))
I always appreciate your insights so very much, my friend!
