Gimme Gimme Foreshortening!
I really can’t read the tons of bullshit hobbit lore they put in here (but kudos to creative team for doing it. If you’re invested - fuck it, right?). The real cream is in the above compositions and the cartoonist switch-up. Hsu did #1, Burles did the rest. Burles’ weird, putty anatomy is fun and really shows with his depiction of the dark priest, Coron.
The skinny: A group of mostly courageous warriors are brought together by Nightwind to help an evil lord retrieve a lot of ancient keys for some nefarious purpose. In other words, exploited labor invade melty beast’s realms for a few golden bread crumbs.
