Its been 4 years but I still love this comic!
Your vs You're
If you are a ghost,
then you're a ghost.
"Your" doesn't come into it...

Also, I love Rose's expressions on this page!

I just realized this was a semi-adaptation of "Schalken the Painter" by Sheridan Le Fanu as told from Rose's point of view. Interesting approach!

@Snowwater: Thanks, yes, I think so, too :)

It was great from beginning to end. :D I love it when stories can be short like this but gives the audience just enough. Cant wait for the next one.

This is the last page of Wilken's Rose, thank you all so much for reading and liking the comic and for all your comments. Don't be too sad there will be another story. And next friday there will be a short prequel with Wendelina and Wilken :)
Every single time I read and reread this comic, my mind wanders off to how it somewhat resembles the myth of Hades and Persephone. I love that myth and this story a lot! ^_^~<3
