So, uh, we got smug Jonan, disdainful Jonan, dismissive Jonan, challenging Jonan, aggressive Jonan, pointy-shoed threatening Jonan, nervous Jonan, and back around to smug Jonan

I'd love to see this as a vote incentive, but everything like 100% more exaggerated, right down to the pointy shoes.

Exaggerated pointy shoes = spiraling curled tips, obviously. So now I'm just imagining Jonan in a Christmas elf costume.
. . . It's 3 in the morning and I shouldn't be awake.

Haha, sounds like traditional Pakistani shoes! Sadly the ones with curled toes are men's only, I've always wanted a pair. :P

You've got to give it to Jonan, he certainly knows how to put on a show! Yes, a real master at work. He knows he is skating close to the edge here, though. I'm wondering how the others are going to react to his defence of Xira once they are clear of town (what with Necropony and all, he must be rapidly losing his scary reputation with them).
Has Jonan picked up enough of the sign language he has been secretly jotting down to communicate yet?

re: handsign, he's only had last night to look it over, so I guess that depends on how quickly he picks things up, but I know I'd still be pretty shaky trying to spell anything. xD

Every Jonan face here is perfect and a blessing omg.

In the second panel, is he making the sign for the letter T, or am I just imagining that? nah... The thumb would be between index and middle finger.

I love the bit where he steps out of the circle, realizes what he's done, and steps back in, all without the angry villager realizing. DANG Jonan can pass his bluff checks with flying colors.

Are you talking about the second panel down the bottom? I think there he's actually putting a foot out intentionally, threatening 'One more step and I start raising an army of the undead. Don't make me come out there.'

Ah, cause see, with his mouth close and his expression in the second to last panel, it looks like he can't speak again? I totally could have been reading it wrong though.

His mouth isn't fully closed/sealed shut -- he still has one foot in the circle (I think we would've seen a glow around his mouth like there was a few pages ago if it had been resealed). I think what happened was, he was trying to intimidate the villager and advanced on him, realized he put a foot out of the circle, had a moment of "oh crap oh jeez be careful", then swung right back into intimidation mode once he heard an opportunity to end the conversation.

YEUPP that's a OH YIKES WAIT moment before he steps all the way over x3
THOUGHT SO. :D
Good thing he's more aware of his surroundings than certain other party members tend to be. XP

These expressions are perfect. It just feels good to see these talking Jonans since it's not something we usually see otherwise. He looks downright villainous in some of these panels, and it is delightful.

Jonan its ALMOST like you have some experience being a frightening disney villain

maaaaan!Jonahs here bluffing like a pro. Gotta give him some respect for this scene right here. Poor man has had all his best weapons taken from him for so long its not easy to remember that hes a feared mage of great and mighty powers. >:D

I never thought these would be the first smiles we'd see from Jonan. I mean, I should have really, but honestly... was not expecting panel 4 at all. So alien to see him so lively!

These are such quality, quality Jonans. (And a quality smol Xira too)

Jonan gives some strong Facilier vibes in panel 1. And we sure don't want to meet His friends from the other side.

I am so worried that due to his admirable defense of a party member, Jonan will not get a chance to eat. Poor baby.

He did eat an apple a couple of pages back! Not sure if he drank any water. I hope he drank something off-panel.

I hadn't spotted that was a little Jonan (although the nose should have clued me in). Aww, wasn't he sweet and enthusiastic... once.

You're pissing off a Necromancer.
Do you want a zombie invasion?
Because that's how you get a zombie invasion.

yeah "I bet you can't raise our city's dead in a shambling army under your command" is probably a bad bet to make against someone who has a history of raising the dead in a shambling army under his command
posted at 11:54pm on June 13th, 2017
Guys! I just realized! Jonan doesn't have to be intimidating, he doesn't have to succeed! HE ONLY NEEDS TO BUY SOME TIME FOR XIRA TO STEP OUT OF THE CIRCLE!!!

OH true?? On the one hand Xira already started (and failed in the circle) to try to cast and they still seem to be managing this, but now that lots of guards and bystanders are watching the fuss I worry Xira would get dogpiled by guards if they caught him muttering ominiously under his breath right now..can he even handle a whole group at once? Would they see his eyes glow or is that just for reader benefit? Cuz muttering with his eyes glowing black in the middle of a riled crowd right now might make things go bad quick...? But obviously they're worried about string-bean Jonan casting 1 v many sooo maybe he could pull it off?

Might be easier to pull off with everybody else staring at the dramatic necromancer, but you raise very interesting points about practicality.

This page is a beautiful mix of AW YESS and ohno!! and the comment on the bottom about 'this is how a REAL pro gets kicked out of town!' is icing on the cake XD

hehehe Sev's face in the first panel. Like he's thinking "Oh, my terrifying hero!". Total ship.
