Hm. Not sure whether this page is good or bad.

I think it's good. The only thing that bothers me is that the room feels a little empty, but I guess that's to be expected from an interrogation room?

As a side note, this is exactly the kind of slick maneuver one of my D&D characters would get everyone in major trouble trying to pull off.

The thing is, she's absolutely sure her backup can handle anything that happens, so she's perfectly happy to gamble.

Yeah, that seems like a pretty safe assumption...

Things are escalating!
But why was there a warrant for them?

Then it will emerge at the proper time.

I would be slightly worried, if View didn't know. :D

So now she bashes them over the head with the hilt?

It looks to me more like she's going to wrap the chain around their necks, but, hey, I could be wrong!

Assassin seems to be a bit of a tell here. That suggests why there is trouble, since Guinevere isn't referred to as a knight, as she should be addressed.

Dame Assassin!

Also, Damn Assassin when things get hairy.

Interrogatrix's butt looks wonky. Other than that, looks great! Love the stealthy action.

It's a Good Page. Captures the essential action of the moment. That crouch pose is excellent.

I'd say one detail is a missed opportunity. Professional guards are unlikely to forget closing the door. Unless distracted.

Enter the final panel where that could have been explained: the terrifying power of the magic nipple! Foom! Ultimate Finisher.

Oh, and Hi! Been following since sometime in June/July-ish. Looking forward to each page more and more. Each installment makes me curious as to what will be revealed &/or happen next ... I call that a Good Sign.

Thank you for sharing!

Welcome! And they didn't get around to closing the door yet because they're incompetent.

Anyway, glad to see a new face!

I love how Guinevere oscillates between being the fool and then being hyper-competent, like in this scene. In non-action scenes she's this silly leech, but in action scenes like this one she is kicking ass (not literally, yet).

It's good for our heroines.

It's very, very bad for the guards.

I've managed to pull off that kind of stealth once or twice. Usually by accident, which I found out when someone jumps and spills hot coffee all over my blouse.
