Commentary for November 11, 2019:

Anyone who once read Eon's Comic may be a little puzzled by the sudden change from Quinsiccus to Britannia. This is one of the major departures from the lore of Eon's Comic I've made with Eon's World. I would have once called this a retcon, but, as of writing Chapter 9 and beginning work on Eon's World Vol. 1, it is official that Eon's World is no longer a direct continuation of the old Eon's Comic.

Quinsiccus was always, basically, Great Britain, if highly idealised. Since I redrew the map for Eon's World, I decided to make it official. I even went with the actual flag of the UK initially, but I have since returned to the flag that had been established as the flag of Silky's homeland in Eon's Comic for various reasons, not least of which is deep dissatisfaction with the real world nation of Great Britain, politically speaking. At the time of writing this amended commentary, I am no longer proud to be British. But I have also since retconned the period in which Eon's World is set to be many thousands of years in the future when the United Kingdom is ancient history and almost completely forgotten.

So, naturally, Britannia is not exactly the same country as the real world United Kingdom, nor is it indeed a kingdom. It's actually a crowned republic, where the reigning monarch is considered a servant of the citizenry and not a ruler over subjects (yes, even in the 21st century, Britons are still formally considered subjects of Her Majesty, the Queen). How the nation of Britannia came to be is a story that is not really pertinent to the ongoing narrative of Eon's World, so it's unlikely to be covered, at least not in Vol. 2. However, it may well be covered in Vol. 1 at some point.

Anyway, enough world-building or rebuilding or whatever. Artistically, I'm really pleased with how this page turned out. I had to learn a few tricks to get the page done faster, because the castle and the hall have, as you see, horribly high levels of detail. But the result, I think, is pretty good. I'm very pleased with how both Eon and Silky turned out, and I think I've managed to get back to my art's Sonic the Hedgehog roots a bit. It's a work in progress but I'm getting there.

In order to bring the format of the earlier chapters into line with Chapter 7 onwards, Iíve made an updated version of this page, which is larger, with clearer text. Hopefully, this will make the earlier chapters easier to read.
