Q&A PART 7
Q1: Where you ever surprised on how fast (or how slow) the community figured out things about the comic?
A: I'm mostly surprised when people wildly guess without any rhyme or reason and somehow get things right that I haven't even hinted at.
Q2: Any anecdote of your expectations non being matched by what actually happened when the readers got to a particular piece of content?
A: Any time I make a typo and people think it is a plot point.
Q3: Now Noah can use "spirit eyes" to see and talk to Ciel but originally he needed mirrors/reflections to do so.
If you can tell us without spoiling anything else, why was this the case? Why mirrors?
A: In a sense Noah was self reflecting when talking to Ciel.
Q4: How did members of Eddstadt board get their positions? Are they magic users? If yes, how strong are they compared to heroes? Or are they just businessmen with no magic?
A: Yes to all.
Q5: What happened to de Vilette's arm?
A: She lost it.
Q6: Do elves fear and hate Veda?
A: I assume the one that got his face melted does.
Q7: Will there be a cat in HOH
A: Oh you don't even know.
Q8: And pigs! Will there be more pigs?
A: Have you guys been reading my buffer or something?
Q9: How did Logan lose his arm, cause he seems to have some sort of gauntlet replacing it.
A: He lost it by putting a gauntlet on it, but every evening he finds it again when he takes the gauntlet off.
Q10: Will Burk ever obtain a mighty steed?
A: Mighty is a subjective term, so I can't really answer for you.
Q11: Where is the Hero Plan's fifth step? If it doesnt exist, does that mean Burk can't count?
A: Either Burk can't count or there is a 5th step. Alternatively Burk's entire plan is misdirection.
Q12: When the elf mentioned monster, was that in a literal sense, as in, the Empire just has some random monster in some underground lab? Or is this used in a metaphorical sense?
A: I want to say both.
Q13: Will Noah's previous Non-Magicy mates ever show up again? S
A: If they will I doubt they'd be important, especially Cho.
Q14: Will anyone from Resthill show up again?
A: always Grandpa and Melany.
Q15: Are there any spells or technologies to regrow lost limbs? If yes, who can afford them?
A: I mean Ariara had a mechanical arm.
Q16: What is Three's hair made of? Is it like real hair? Plastic fibers? Metal/inorganic fibers? Just something solid in the shape of a wig?
A: Probably all of the above, but, like, fleshier. I just suggest not trying to chew on it like normal hair.
Q17: What is the red thing in Three's hair? Differently coloured hair? Some liquid? Slime? Is it immobile, or does it flow and drip?
A: Look I don't know how to tell you this but ... the less we talk about 3's hair the better.
Q18: I am curious- how many had thought the title was Hero On Hero? I was one.
A: Kinky. But how would I know!
Q19: How large are the populations of the states mentioned so far: Heroland total, Global Order total, Mage king subjects, Justopea, Livarall, Lorg? (Did I miss anything?) Either numbers or share of the world population.
A: Very big, Enormous, Somewhat decent, Pretty big, Somewhat biggish, Larger than it should be. (I don't know if you missed anything..)
Q20: The comic hints that magic users were scarce some time ago, but suddenly a bunch of kids are getting magic from... somewhere?
What is the cause of that "magical explosion"?
A: I want to say magic.
Q21: What is the purpose of EXAMPLE TEXT on page 1508?
A: It functions as example text.
Q22: How old are the main and important secondary characters? Burk, Noah, Tobi; Pablo, Veda, Pirate of the Strorm, Iron Judge, Guy, Eloy, Kimberly, Three, both Blue players. If the mental and physical age differ, tell both. For Tobi: how old does she think she is, and what age would a doctor name, when tasked to estimate her age?
Burk: Unlike popular belief, not in fact a teenager.
Noah: In fact, a teenager.
Tobi: Only looks like a teenager.
Pablo: Much younger than you'd think.
Veda: Don't ask.
Ariara: Don't know
Iron Judge: Moderately grandpa aged.
Guy: Stylishly old.
Eloy: Too young for his drinking habits.
Kimberly: Only old in a relative sense.
Three: Youngest one here.
Both Blue players: One is older than the other.
I forgot to mention which ages refer to their physical or mental age, but I'm sure you guys can figure that out.
Tobi again: Look the doctor would have a lot of questions about the elf ears, claw paws and other inhuman anatomical features we won't discuss here.
As always, I hope this cleared up all your questions! Feel free to ask me more for the next Q&A!
