✦ Story

In a small French town, an unusual kind of mass is held: the local priest, Dunant, describes it as “faith healing”, promising those who are suffering will be healed of their ailments with just a single touch of his hands. Ionel, a pianist with albinism, seeks out Dunant‘s miraculous touch. He struggles with his failing eyesight, a condition that could potentially put an end to his career. Something about the priest’s blessing soon strikes him as odd, and so Ionel begins investigating.

Ionel uncovers several clues that draw him deeper into the mystery surrounding Dunant. As he starts to slowly befriend the priest, he finds himself delving further into a world of miracles and curses.

Here's the last page of Ionel's side story "Encore", which marks the end of that little glimpse we caught into Ionel's past. Creating this comic was a wild ride for me, since it's the first comic I ever drew by myself. Naturally, Eliot helped me a lot during the whole process. Still, many parts were a first for me and it wasn't easy but I loved going through this little journey and ending up with 11 rendered pages that I can be proud of. This side story is very important to me and I'm excited to have shared it with you all, since I wanted to show more facets of Ionel. I hope you enjoyed it!
