Paypal and Payoneer no longer work in my country, so I can't get money from Ko-fi, Gumroad, Buymeacoffe and ComicAd (the ad banners here).
The only tip jar I have left is Boosty. It accepts Paypal, all cards, any currency, then it converts it into rubles and sends to me. Boosty works the same way as Patreon + accepts one-time donations like Ko-fi and allows selling ebooks.

Father told him to stop being emotional. Well, he tried. Didn't last long. He is to happy to see humans again.

Little Ash said he hated his full name (Page_261). Adult Ash seems totally indifferent to it. Hope chooses to call him Nolan and he is okay with it. We'll call him Nolan from now on too. It will come in handy later.

Names. Usually I don't translate them, but in this case I did, to preserve their meaning. There's a triad of female names that often go together if a family has three daughters. They literally mean Faith, Hope, and Love (Vera, Nadejda, Lybov). They sound in English better when translated and, as far as I know, turn into proper English names too.


Hope looks so young. I'm a bit surprised that she has a baby. Either I'm just bad at judging ages, or having children young is maybe just typical around here.

Hope is about twenty years old. She is also a kind of woman that looks somewhat boyish and remain flat-chested all her life, so no wonder she looks younger than she is.

I wonder if that name triad is the last trace of any of the current religions in this new world...

And Hope looks about twenty to me, or maybe a tad older. That's on the young end, but not like 14 or something.

There are no religions in the world for Gifts, none at all. There may be gods and spirits in fairy tales but everyone knows they're not real. Religions had been dead long before Hope was born. The only reason for ancient names in Norns' Abode is one woman's fascination with ancient history.

Your shading on this comic started started out very good, but now it's even better!

Thanks :)
I always say that making a comic is the best way to improve one's drawing skills.
