And just like that, a week has passed. Priscilla, Queen of the Desert was a success and I'm a little exhausted, but happy! Thank so much for all your well-wishing.
And hey, this isn't the worst page to come back to real life with, eh? ;)
Someone woke up in a mood - but the weight in that head of his. Gah!

Glad things went well with Priscilla!

Shhh...listen...do you hear that? That's the sound of my heart breaking for Cort!

Come on Ian...I need you to make the choice, follow through and give my son some much needed happiness in his life!

Congratz, welcome back ;)

And woah, another moment for Cort to apparently relive some old trauma, if going by those background sentences...

Oh, this is the real issue and he is so tempered he even find the empathy with Ian... but how brave is our boy, walking everyday with this weight is just too much, this of course affected his behaviour but worse his inner self to even seek for help or someone to love... now I'm not so sure my Ian can be the man just right now, hope he pull himself together and try to be

@LADYKAZUMI: ah, sorry! I added a page with the link to purchase the deluxe edition hardback...but I wasn't sure how to do it so added it as a page. I think that's caused confusion x

The paneling on this page does a great job of letting us get glimpses of Cort’s back story by hearing the voices of the past. And it does it without distracting from the flow of the page itself.

The other powerful thing about this page in the ambiguity. You’ve left us a trail of bread crumbs but it’s up to us to work out what they mean. Cort wakes up hung over, clothed and alone. He talks about choices, but we don’t know if it’s his own, Ian’s or both. We see the part of the price of a choice in the way he cradles his injured hands and in the visible scars as he adjusts the shower. But why would he choose a COLD shower? Does the language in panels 6/7 and 9 indicate that Cort is …impatient… to move the relationship forward, or am I reading that in? The writing and the art really come together in a nuanced view that forces us to engage as storytellers as well. I think it’s much more powerful than a more direct or explicit rendering of the scene would be.

Court put some clothes on! You're too young for me to see you like this >////<! XDD

Ugh hungover? Screw having a shower I'd sleep the day away T.T
I'd say give it another try. It could be that final push to get the motivation to really want to change yourself for the better :)

@Auldr: Man, I love your comment so much. I love how much you're reading into the details - and you're so right to! There's a lot being said here between the lines ^_^
