My brain hurt like a warehouse, it had no room to spare
I had to cram so many things to store everything in there
And all the fat-skinny people, and all the tall-short people
And all the nobody people, and all the somebody people
I never thought I'd need so many people

David Bowie - Five Years

I thought it would be fun to do some bits of the comic as a first-person narrative - but not all of it because that makes it as biased as it gets.

As usual, I don't know when I'll upload the next page but the long wait is over and doesn't it feel good.

I accidentally started reading the original one, and coming fresh off that, the difference between it and this remake is astounding. And yaaaay you're using colours to set the mood and get some visual drama going, that was something the old version sorely lacked. Looking forward to seeing how you cover the same material in a new way!

@eishiya: I kiiind of knew leaving the old version online meant people going and comparing art (I'm sure I'll live lol) - for me it's really about telling the story better more than drawing it better but yeah, uh, thank you! :D

@Oly-RRR: It's hard to tell how much the storytelling has improved from just two pages, so I comment on what I can see of your visual storytelling improvement. Like I said, you're using visuals to carry your story much more effectively than before.
Plus I am a rubbish writer, what do I know 8D But I know purty pikturs when I see them.

@eishiya: I know it sounds weird from someone revamping a chapter but... I drew it the best way I could back then, I do it the best way I can now but I'd tell this story in stick figures if I had to, really! I used to revamp too many comics with art improvement in mind, this is the first one I'm reworking because the story asked for it, art changes are really just a lucky coincidence of me doing it years later, and art always changes through time anyway. Augh, there's no way to put it that doesn't sound snobby, is there...

Sorry, you're being too kind and I just feel weird talking about art. I do appreciate that you like it! <:)

@ServerPanda: Aw you! Thanks! X) But yeah, it's been like 3 months since the last short (though the last month was mostly getting back to routines and trying to resist posting the previous page without this one)...

CHILLS WITH THIS SERIOUSLY I AM SO THRILLED WITH HOW IT TURNED OUT!!!!!

(also because I'm an egg it makes me so pleased that the comic title is now IN THE CANON OF THE STORY)

Ohhhh I am so happy for you with how it is turning out right now. It's like a remake of a movie I already love except the remake is actually in the hands of a skilled director and producer and surpasses the original film XD

@mitchellbravo: Ehehe thank you!!!

YESSS HE SAID THE TITLE- I wanted this sort of intro for a while, sort of explaining the title, but I could never fit it in naturally in all my previous ideas for an intro.

LIKE A REMAKE ...OF TROLL 2? :D (Now I'm wondering if that should be called Troll 3 or just Troll.)

This has a more movie vibe to it now doesn't it?
I eagerly await to see this new version!
