    Wow. This just hit me deeply. And I’ll tell you guys why.

    In an earlier run, I had Dismas get afflicted with “Irrational” and he started mentioning a woman here and there. He even said in combat “You have her face! How can you have her face?!” or somesuch.

    So… the highwayman apparently had a woman he loved, but they couldn’t stay together.

    And now we have this comic with a woman and child killed by the highwayman in a carriage. Then we get a focused pic on the child, who has a suspiciously similar hairstyle as the in-game highwayman.

    THE HIGHWAYMAN KILLED HIS OWN LOVER AND BASTARD CHILD BY ACCIDENT.

    Gee… I could be entirely wrong, though, but that’s going to be my headcanon from now on.

    Cruel and merciless justice.

    If this is “Issue #2”, where is #1? I can’t find it.

    The first one is the abomination. Here’s the link if you want.

    This is such a powerful, yet short depiction of the HWM. It is pretty astounding how much emotion is evoked even though no words are ever utteredhere.

    On another note, has anyone realized that, on the last panel, the shattered stage coach window eerily resembles the affliction sign? Moreover, it seems to be omniously around the HWM’s head, just like in the game, when a character is pushed over the edge and loses his sanity…
