I wasn’t completely happy with page 20, so I took some time today to add in some vocalizations for the sal-kin. It’s something I originally wanted to do, but skipped for the sake of getting the new page up. I think it really improves the overall look of the page and is more immersive for the reader.
Pacific giant salamanders do have vocal capabilities and will “bark” when agitated. So this sound effect is meant to be something like a cross between a croak and a bark. I imagine it’s what a large part of their language sounds like, especially the angry words.
In other news, I have next week off the day job. Hopefully I should be able to finish up page 21 then.
Thanks everyone for sticking around and reading the comic!
