I learned a few things in college besides how to hold my liquor.

And I am glad to hear the 5th iteration (good lord, the revisions) of the last panel is working out for you!

Hahaha, well played.

No matter what he's done, I just can't see Eric as an EVIL guy. I'm actually rooting for him now.

Eric's just a guy trying to do what's right... in epic fashion.

But yeah, his relationship with women seems to be kinda, uh, manipulative? Evangelical? Sociopathic? Like, "put your shitty, broken life in my hands and I will make it all better."

I'm not convinced that AEGIS is wrong.

I think Eric is just insane and that does not mean necessarily evil.
I see him acting on instinct more than anything and what gets swept with the current just had a bad luck.
Seriously, recalling Volume 2 is usually about Eric dragging anyone along and spiraling out of control.
I would say he just thinks differently and "screwed up" to most than being outright bad or evil.

I mean the last panel is perfect in that regard. He just casually whips out the picture like it is absolutely normal :D

And I will say it again: Eric and Aquila have things in common :)

It is a blue-skinned woman from the moon who turns Eric's dreams into utter torment.

He tries to fight her, but invariably her words are prophesy--and violently so.

This is why he drinks, so that when he is not awake it is only the darkness of not-being.

1. Upon repeated readings, I have to give you a nod of respect for the Blue Moon logo in panel 1 (and the call-back to Volume 2 - yes, you already know I'm THAT kind of fan).

2. Thinking on everything we've seen Eric involved with, I suspect he's something of a mirror. He does what he does, and people see their own biases in it.

3. Eric Macdonald has what I would call True Charisma...
