This is such a wonder. <3
This lovely piece is made by my oldest friend, Sebastian Eylir!

Now this one kinda hit me in the gut. There's such a nice sense of air and freedom in this drawing, it feels magical to me. I wonder what's going through Norrland's head when she looks at the windeye...

You can find more of Sebastian's art at his twitter and tumblr, but be warned that there's content not suitable for children there sometimes! Sebastian is more or less always open for commissions, so do check him out if you're in need of some quality art.
Next up, the mastermind behind the incredible comic Parallax, Falke!

Falke is one of the nicest and most hardworking people I know, and I was so happy when he agreed to draw a guest page. He captured such a cozy little moment!

You can read Parallax from the start here! And I actually recommend NOT looking at the latest page unless you're already up to date, because Some Stuff Is Happening Right Now

oh Mal is so good!!! infodumping!! lovely!!!! :D
Ahaha, I think we ALL have met that particular bygone... Great guest comic! :D
Wow, this is awesome. The art is great, I love Mal in the lat panel :)
First out is the ink monster and bigtime Mal fan Mister Domon!

I was SO delighted by this comic, Domon's comedic timing is always superb. And just look at how amazingly cute he drew Mal and Norrland...!

By the way, Domon made the very first Bygones Be fanart ever back in 2015. It only seems fair that he'd be the first ever guest artist!

You can find more of Domon's art over at his tumblr!
@Oly-RRR: Thank you for your honest feedback, I really appreciate it! I am the first to admit that this chapter was a struggle to write, and looking back I could've done it much differently. Live and learn! Hopefully it will flow better when read all at once.
Interesting to learn some of the background of the... background? Of the place! :D

I still love the comic and will be looking forward for its return but this chapter was kinda text-heavy even for me (I'm usually all for comic NOT being all about action only). It might be because the last few pages are this lengthy back-and-forth between Norrland and Mal that comes down to Mal asking for help with Bygones, some info that was already implied and Mal deciding to work at the kitchen, all without much visual variety. But then it sounds like you had a lot of things going on while working on this comic so I can get this, and maybe I'm being nitpicky here. Gotta use the break to re-read the chapter since some scenes just flow better when you get to read more than one page at a time. :)
It's been a long chapter that took a very long time to finish. Thank you so much for reading and sticking with me through it all.

I'm going to take a break before chapter three starts. Bygones Be will be back in mid July - I don't want to promise a date yet, because I'll keep up my treacherous juggling between comic work and money-making work all summer. But! In the meantime, I have asked some of my very good friends for guest pages! So every Friday from June 8th until the end of the break you will be able to enjoy a fine assortment of works made by equally fine people.

See you later!

I love how Mal thinks "Dad" is a first name. 8) ...though it does make me wonder about their background/upbringing.

And he even used the correct pronoun, what a cool surprise, Mr. Dad x3

I like this plan but I can see so many things going wrong with that... I'm sure Norrland's dad will be so pleased. :D
Go Mal~. I like where this is heading...

It's a win-win for them both! And aww, Norrland's huge eyes in the bottom panel! C:

Happy birthday to Bigones! And yeah, sticking around is totally worth it, this comic is brilliant! :)

Norrland must be tired to be catching up so slowly. :c
