seawings28: Tui: Who/what were you most excited to see in the GN?
I was really excited to see Peril, who is such a big personality, and of course Clay, who is the heart of the book – so he has to be brave and befuddled and sweet and nervous and heartbroken and I wasn’t sure how it would be possible to convey all those things in one dragon face. But Mike did it amazingly – I think especially when you consider that the novel has so much internal monologue and emotional stuff that Clay is going through in his head. The fact that Mike was able to convey all of that in the art is incredible.
I was also very excited to see the settings, especially Queen Scarlet’s palace and arena. I am actually not a very visual person myself, so when I describe a setting, I try to spend a lot of time on coming up with unique details that will make it easier for me to picture (and hope that if even *I* can picture it, then the reader will be able to as well). I spent SO long imagining Scarlet’s arena/prison that I actually did have a pretty clear picture of it in my head, and Mike has captured it exactly as I imagined.
cleverdragon 364: If there are going to be more graphic novels, what part of the books are (both of) you most excited to see put into picture form?
I can't wait to see what Mike does with the Summer Palace in book 2, because that’s another setting I spent a long time figuring out! I hope I described it well enough in words for Mike to imagine, too – but I’m also sure that whatever he comes up with will be even more beautiful and make more physical sense than what’s in my head!
darkwind90: Was the great scorching after or before Darkstalker?
Did Burn have the wing(s) of a dragon from Pantala in her?collection?
Is the new IceWing queen an animus?
No, they still don't have any animus dragons.
Will Glory create a rule that the RainWings have to keep track of their eggs? I think she should...
I think she should, too!
dragonbookworm366: Will we see more of winter's scavenger sanctuary?
I hope so! I must admit, as delighted as he is about this idea, I'm not so sure the scavengers are going to be very pleased about it!
Will the original dragonets be in the third arc?
Yes, I'm hoping to bring everyone back in at least a little bit here and there -- I would miss Clay and Sunny and Glory and Tsunami and Starflight too much if they were gone completely! Plus I like showing what they're up to and how they're still developing, even if it's just in the background. :)
So many great questions -- you guys are awesome! :)
