Might be a bit late with the next update (just to make up for this one being early...), sorry! Hopefully I won't be but things keep happening!

So, the dreams affect sick trees. If they affect sick trees AND RGB, is RGB sick?
Kata 3rd Jul 2014, 7:03 PM edit delete reply
No no, it was safe to sleep in the tree because it was sick, so the dreams wouldn't affect it. Now with Hero's schism in it, though..... >__>;;
Nightsbridge 3rd Jul 2014, 10:58 PM edit delete reply
It's safe for RGB to sleep there. I get the impression that he is special.

That art is so incredibly great, I can't put into words how mystic and abstract the tree looks now. I cannot wait to see how this turns out! :)

Well, this does look peculiar (and absolutely amazing). I hope Hero and Assok are okay.

Holy crap. The tree looks awesome. I'm guessing whatever was left from the fear when Hero got stabbed is infecting the tree? Your artwork is incredible, by the way.

These are all so beautifully done, and they just keep getting better! I love your work!

I love the fact he actually freaking turns on when he wakes up. That's just clever.

Can we talk about how before, when the tree was all soft pastels, the landscape around it was dark and depressing. But now the landscape is bright and colorful while the tree looks as though the pastel is like skin melting off a deer's head....

I want a poster of this page hanging in my room, this is fantastic !

For some odd reason, the tree feels familiar... to me, at least. I'm not sure if from the comic or from somewhere else...

Something got fertilized!
chris-tar 4th Jul 2014, 4:33 AM edit delete reply
My best guess is that this is some kind of dendrite or neuron, or some psychological or spiritual representation of Hero, and now it is going through some kind of radical transformation....
Maybe one day I'll find out!!!!!!!!

I love how you can see Hero's dream bubbles.
Guest 4th Jul 2014, 9:57 AM edit delete reply
The tree is waking up :) Hopefully not a bad thing.
Anonymous 4th Jul 2014, 10:36 AM edit delete reply
It looks like the tree isn't infected, it looks like it's shedding the shell, like it's frozen over but the ice is melting.

Maybe it won't eat them, maybe it'll just take flight!

Oh my gosh, I just caught up to this comic! It's so beautiful! I wonder if the tree's change had something to do with Hero's dreams.. Sure hope the change was made for the better, though.
And if she revived the tree.. Could she possibly do that for other things in the world?
Maybe the reason he needed a young hero was because of all the hopes and dreams humans have at that age, but as they grow up they start to lose some of that, so it wouldn't help him stop the world from ending..
Just theorizing, though. o-o
I honestly don't know what to expect, though, to be honest. This comic just keeps ya' guessing what'll happen next!
Good job!!!

Wait wait wait, what if hero's power in the world is to fix or heal dead trees and the like?
Dana 6th Jul 2014, 11:31 PM edit delete reply
Ugh this page is too perfect! I love how when he wakes up in the second panel his hands twitch a bit. And the whole stretching in the third panel with his mouth doing that thing is just too cute.
Edgar 8th Jul 2014, 10:32 AM edit delete reply
Is it me or does the tree look like a heart?
Emmy T 8th Jul 2014, 12:03 PM edit delete reply
I was really feeling down tonight. I read all of these and loved them. Thanks for these.
EnigmaDragon 8th Jul 2014, 6:56 PM edit delete reply
Hold on a tick... What if.. Now what if... RBG... WAS HATE?????!!
I have no idea if someone suggested this already, but if you think about it, it kinda makes sense. He said Hero was his, as if she was his PROPERTY. EH? EEEH? I mean, he could represent hate in a way that's hard for me to explain. Y'know, just Thinkin out loud... That negative him tho, looked awfully suspicious...
enigmaDragon 8th Jul 2014, 7:00 PM edit delete reply
The way he lost it too... Maybe he's anger? It tends to control people... Make them do regrettable things....
Guest 9th Jul 2014, 6:16 PM edit delete reply
I think that's taking 'property' too literally... RGB seemed to understand her meaning when she said 'I HATE YOU'. Hate is a property, a condition, of what things are here.
1412 12th Jul 2014, 12:01 PM edit delete reply
I thought the title was because the dreamland-or-whatever-they're-in was currently ruled over by that evil woman named Hate that they talked about on the book bridge. RGB's name is RGB, after all, but the antagonist is some girl actually named Hate.
enigmaDragon 12th Jul 2014, 9:08 PM edit delete reply
Ok fine, fair enough. It was just a silly thought, a shot in the dark. I just couldent recall the panel were the main women, antagonist was referred to as 'Hate'. my memory isent really good, no joke.
enigmaDragon 12th Jul 2014, 9:12 PM edit delete reply
And by referred to. I mean DIRRECTLY referred to. Though that could have been for dramatic effect or somethin'...
Guest 9th Jul 2014, 6:05 PM edit delete reply
In panel 3, RGB's two button-dial-things switched colors. SUSPICIOUS
AmesomeCats 9th Jul 2014, 11:50 PM edit delete reply
I think it was just the lighting changing. Not something to do with RGB.

This series reminds me a lot of The Phantom Tollbooth.

We slept within a dream, and though our tempo only slowed a little, the world around us sped up.

Can we all just follow mod on tumblr pwease? That'd be great

You're such a good artist! I love your work! This story is so instating and everything is so detailed and pretty :D
Guest 12th Jul 2014, 1:52 PM edit delete reply
I just realised that if RGB goes to sleep with his jacket on they change colours the next day. Yet if he sleeps with it off, the colours don't change. I looked back at the first few pages and it seems to be correct.
Guest 12th Jul 2014, 7:52 PM edit delete reply
well, although mod has debunked it, now that you mention it i notice something slightly similar.
every time RGB has had a color change he's woken up from not-so-ideal conditions (being 'bled dry', dreamed on, hit by a grief). the entire time he was knocked out by that grief mentioned earlier, his colors fizzed in and out in an error-like pattern. we also saw this after the idea licked his face and brought him back to earth during his 'death dream', given to him by hero. so either the change is inspired by negative emotions, such as hate, or something i havent thought of yet. its probably a longshot though.
