    Intentional
    Funny thing - the first word he said, which was "delicious", was before he ate, and there were no signs of speech impediments. Then again, it was only one word, so who knows. We'll know soon enough
    I wonder if/when we'll know his real name, though.

    I think his name really is Nomen, and that, if Elagune knew what the name meant (And it seems really unlikely that he didn't), he did it on purpose, for laughs, just like... Hmm, would you prefer a Marvel example, or DC?... Dr. Pin's (Ant-man) name was chosen on purpose, as a Meaningful Name. Except that Elagune found a way to Play With that Trope, where as Dr. Pin was played straight. I'm not sure which variety of playing with though, although... Well, whatever.

    I'm sure you did pick the name for it's meaning, though. "Name not known"... Better than Nemo, meaning "No Name".

    This reminds me. There is a TvTropes page for Thaumaturge, but it's really empty right now. WikiMagic?

    Here it is!

    I'm sure the unwritten dialog is her just peppering him with questions. What pun?

    What is Wendy's height compared to the rest of the cast? Seeing her smaller than the chair's back made me think she was maybe 6 or 7, when I had previously deemed her a teen. So I've looked at the pages where she's alongside The-Man-With-No-Credible-Name, and it seems her relative height varies wildly, going as high as the chin and as low as the thighs. Maybe you should draw a lineup (like Shive's) of your characters as a guide to be more consistent?

    I think it's just that today's comic makes her look shorter than usual. Part of it's just a trick of perspective (compare the location of Wendy's feet to the legs of the chair; that panel's using a high "camera" angle). She comes up to around Nomen's seated shoulder height when she stands next to him a couple of panels later. Compare that to, say, here, when we first see the two stand next to each other.

    I CAN EXPLAIN!

    I'm applying for internship during the summer, which means that I have to finish my portfolio by mid-February. This in addition with me finally finding a programmer for my final project (of my entire Animation degree and not just this single year) means that what little free time I have from school being dedicated to painting and concept art that have left me weak and weary.

    Won't be long before I start updating again, but for the moment, I'm at my wit's end!

    Previous page: I noticed one of the constables (or whatever) was also a giant. Not as big as doolin, but... Big.

    I propose that people in the Thauma'verse vary much more radically than in Our World. And Doolin is a natural size, due to that. Like, take one of our Basket Ball players, and cross-train him in (American) Football, so that he has the height, and broadness. That... is not as big as Doolin. But that's our "maximum". Doolin is... like a tall (but not stretched) college student interested in various sports, with an average body, except to the range of proportions normal to their world.

    That's my theory.

    And I see Wendy has MORE cards now. By Nomen's description, the cards fading away is normal. But I guess she'll start learning how to call Miracles up now.
