She promised, with the smile of a person who isn't promising anything. It's also the smile of a person who is absolutely terrible at lying.
Heh, I've been inking the first couple of pages of the final prologue act, and the key prologue character of that part (yup, only one) ended up looking so freaking much like a mix between Hannu and Ville that it's almost ridiculous. I was initially thinking of tweaking his facial proportions enough to get rid of most of the resemblance, but what the heck, it'll be more fun this way. He's just a prologue character anyway so it's not like he'll be showing up in the comic for long. :P Now back to inking some more pages!
