Like a few others in this book, this is a simple story exploring a decision made by one character. This story could be expanded to a much, much longer work, but one of the joys of writing five-page comics is the chance to take a complex issue and boil it down to its base elements. Similarly, Silvio dB’s sparse, evocative style perfectly complemented the simplicity of this story, and his designs of both monsters and monster hunters made me want to spend more time with these characters and this world.
