They’ve “landed” on the way but never actually… stopped… on the ground. So more like they kinda bounced off the ground and idled while everybody had their in-flight walks and potty breaks and stuff… 😉

But anyway! In more interesting news, the Fey Winds – Book One Kickstarter HAS MADE THE GOAL!! AND THE FIRST STRETCH GOAL!! So, for those keeping track, both versions of the cover will have spot gloss, and if we make it up to 35k (it’s close!!) there’ll be bookmarks for everybody who ordered a physical book! There are 5 DAYS LEFT TO PLEDGE!! (And if we make it to 40k, everybody who ordered a book will also get stickers and I AM VERY EXCITED ABOUT ALL OF THIS!!!)

Fey Winds Book 1

  • Ilmari

    Just in case the emotion was getting to you…
    Not much charcterises Fey Winds quite like sudden mood/art changes. :p

    . . .

    As for landing, how much could it go wrong, really? These guys have crash-landed a dragon before, the Trashy Gasbag ought to serve them fine…

    Also, I do not want to imagine a fly-by toilet break… 😮

  • The Wizard of Iz

    Aim for water. Hold onto something. Each other might work. Yeah. Hold into each other. A little lower, Nigel… 😉

  • JFD

    Well, on the bright side, the only way to go is down. And there’s snow everywhere if they’re still over the mountains. On the other hand, well there’s this pesky gravity.

    Also, that first panel is very sweet :3

    Excellent page as always 🙂

  • Zorg

    Emergency evacuation plan:
    1 -Toss Sid out of the gassbag so he turns into a Dragon instantly.
    2 – Once he’s flying beside the Gasbag let everyone but Kit jump onto his back.
    3 – After everyone’s mounted Kit can drop her control and quickly join her friends atop Sid.
    4 – Arrive to the city like a boss, riding a Dragon Prince.
    5 – …profit?

    • Farce Dawn

      6. get shot down by city guard when they see the dragon in the sky.

    • Kitsu

      That would probably constitute an international incident.

    • Ilmari

      Worth remembering, they crashed Sid last time he was the party transport, too…

    • ♎Adamas🐉

      Sid’s arm/wing’s still borked.

  • Sabreur

    Quick, wake the ogre!

    She can’t help, but it’s one more person to share the blame. 😉

  • Alex Rawlings

    “passengers this is your captain speaking, if you look to your left you will see the ground rising up to meet us.”

  • icekatze

    hi hi

    Landing is just like crashing, but you do it on purpose. Oh, and try to crash softly.

    Also, I really wonder what Nigel is considering there on panel 1. Is that looking-away glance a sign he’s not entirely in the present? The world may never know.

  • Obakeinu

    And I’ll wager that the operator’s manual isn’t in the glove box either. ;-p

  • LynXsh

    Oh, the last panel is something!

  • UrQuan3

    And in this world, they use gasbags *for* crashes.
    Man, there are so many good lines for this.
    “flying is the art of throwing yourself at the ground, and missing.”
    “Can you fly this plane and land it?”
    “Surely you can’t be serious?”
    “I am serious, and don’t call me Shirley”
    Maybe my favorite:
    “In the event of an emergency, please place your head between your knees” “and kiss your bum goodbye”

  • danea55

    I actually went to school to be an aircraft mechanic. The joke even the instructors insisted was the closest to true, was that landings are only controlled crashes. Just look at the plane. It knows. >.<

    So very very sweet. My teeth hurt and I love it!!! Then the shock. Great mood swings here. 😀

  • Zixinus

    Wait, so they did get near the ground (I imagined they threw their poop overboard)? If so, then its more of a problem of figuring out how to anchor the thing. If the propellers are providing lift, they just need to gently reduce power and turn them off.

    If the lift-gas is hot air, then they can just vent it. The real problem would be if it isn’t and they might need the preserve it in case they need to use it again.

    But I guess that magic is holding the whole damn thing together and they have no idea what they are doing?

  • To quote a beautiful show: “Hello everyone, this is your captain speaking. We have a little problem with our landing sequence, we may experience some slight turbulence and then explode.”

  • ExPaladin

    Well, landing airships is more… art than science.

  • Vezera

    I mean…just look for a really large bale of hay, maybe?
