The Legend of Zelda - Book of the Traitor

The Legend of Zelda - Book of the Traitor

Thousands of years after the fall of Hyrule, in the recovering postwar cities of New Ordon, new heroes arise to defeat the remnants of the lost kingdom's dark past, as well as that of their own. The cycle of good vs. evil continues, but as is always true in war, the line between them blurs...
Book of the Traitor - a study in destiny, identity, and the line between good and evil.

---------------

This is a Legend of Zelda fancomic that takes place in a rough equivalent of the modern day circa 1980's-1990's, following Twilight Princess' and Breath of the Wild's continuity, as interpreted by the writer. It also accepts certain fan-theories as true.

Nice parallels in this page! The coffee cups being knocked down by Courage and Wisdom methods helps show who the characters are.

I've also really been enjoying how the past several pages have just been visual storytelling. It speaks to the strength of the writer and artist that no dialogue is required to easily understand what's happening in a compare and contrast sequence of Link and Mike's typical day.

I really like the design of the outfits--half medieval, half modern. Very unique!

I like the modern take on Link's classic outfit - casual, but all the right colors in all the right places.

It's also neat to see how he's with Mike. I wonder if Zelda will show up later, or if Mike is who Zelda reincarnated as this iteration (nothing says she has to always be a blond/brunette princess - why not a prince for a change?) or both (the NES games have two Zeldas at the same time, thus it can work).

@Xylas_Incarnum: No, I don't think so. He's referring to the version of him in Mike's dream.

"at least one of me" Ok then, definitely something in the same ball park of "Four swords" is going on here.

Wow, I'm 100% straight and even I had to say "now that's fucking adorable" when I got to the fourth panel.

Huh, I never would have pegged Link as gay in this comic, based on what I've seen of him so far (not that there's anything wrong with that). Then again, my brother happens to be gay and he has all the warmth and personality of a terminator, so...

@Random Person: Chapter 2 - The Prophecy.
Well, well, well. Look at that. Link's got a double bed that looks like, somebody slept on the other side.
Nice.
Also: the light/shadow-contrasts look really good.
But I admit, I can't read the hylian font, so please, PLEASE tell me, what's written above the building in the last panel.

Three week break
This page brings us to the end of chapter 1! There's going to be a news post to this effect as well, but the comic is going to be on break for the next three weeks to give me some time to get the page buffer back to a healthy level.

Updates will resume on June 3. Thanks for your patience, and we hope to keep seeing you around here once chapter 2 begins!

I wonder when we will see any kind of Tylli, a Zora/Ruto, or even a Goruto in the story?

Really I hope we see it soon.

Wait maybe it is not Links clone (Ravio) but Mike (Zelda).

What is going on?!
What is going on?! Have i missed something?
Why is Sheik injured and why is (Ravio) Links clone injured? O.O I have more questions but can't figure out how to ask them.
