@MichaelHartman: very true.
@kidcthulhu: It's a start! hehe;)
Did they find the chimney clogged with crows? That's my official guess.
chimney fires very common even today in some places.
@Linn: I know, I'm sure I couldn't eat one but in olden times they did! The crow trap is real as well btw. And woo hoo for zombie crows but I was kinda thinking that all crows are a part of Lenore so there are always replacements as they all share the one soul! :)
@Karlijn: Yea it has, but not for much longer. believe it or not this is still a love story! ;)
@MichaelHartman: Lenore's been softer with him than she will be with Carlingford.
@kidcthulhu: The poem says 'many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore' so I figured there had to be more than one book! As for the last panel, I was trying to make it look as if he was crashing across the table but it didn't really come out that way in the end. A bigger image of him breaking out of the panel altogether would have been much more effective but I didn't really have the space. :)
Also please tell me the crow flying around Sarah is a zombie crow! :D
Love the art in this one and it reminds one that it was different times back then, when crow was actually a legit thing to eat.
The story has taken such a dark turn! That seems like a really uncomfortable way to die.
what a bad way to die
"Forgotten Lore, Volume II"? Nice reference to the Simpson's adaption of "The Raven". Also like there's some manner of Mad magazine collection in there too ^_^

Overall, the pacing and direction in this page are great. Good Dutch angle on the last page!
Next week: Carlingford gets his turn!
@skyangel: That would be a twist, if you'd forgotten about her and the story would go on without her!
@skyangel: Produced by Sam Raimi and directed by the Pang Brothers.
@Karlijn: Yea, I remember her! lol We'll be seeing her again in a couple of weeks and it will certainly leave an impression. :)
@kidcthulhu: I thought 'The Messengers' sounded familiar but googling it just now, I haven't seen the film or the series so that's on my wishlist now! :)
@MichaelHartman: I never played Dungeons and dragons but I get the idea.
I love the chaos of the first panel, and Poe's bust of course :)
This would make me very nervous if I were Sarah.
I love the little bust of Edgar Allen in the corner of the last page.

I also can't help drawing a parallel to the Harpy legend with the whole daily terror/ruining the food bit.

Well done. Now I need to watch The Messengers again ^_~
