Sorry this one went up late! But it’s still Monday morning here, so we’re still good.
Okay, who or what is this serpent?
Has Cobra Commander escaped prison and jumped dimensions again?
As Snakes are known to survive without food, the only possible reason for this attack is an immense hatred for spiders. Thus I’d suspect Kila. (=
They may go without food for long periods of time, but they still need to eat
But, the snake eating a spider does have symbolic connotations
Yeah, well, um, I totally forgot about that. I guess it diminishes the obviousity of the irony, huh?
Soooo, I guess the tarantula symbolizes either generally the drow or more specifically Lolth, who went back to her realm after her scuffle with the Beholder King – still missing from the archives, I might add.
What about the serpent, though? Kila had a serpentine body, but she is powerless without a single worshipper and was utterly trounced by Lolth last time. Maybe dragons – but what would their beef be with the dark elves?
Or another faction enters Black Mountain – my guess is Yuan Ti.
That is some sound reasoning..
I’m glad there was a title page, because, man was that a jarring transition. Especially since I had to go way back and see where that story with Lewie connected up. (I’m not complaining about that connection–that was cool even if it messed with my understanding of the timeline.)
You’re always good, Rich.
I’m taking it that today’s page is highly symbolic. While, on the surface, it looks like a Bad Time for the Drow, that also isn’t one of their more typical spider representations. So, I’m not going to try to read to much into it just yet.
I would note, though, that there is a complete lack of scale. That snake could be six inches or six feet long.
Do I smell yuan-ti?
If you go back to http://yafgc.net/comic/2726-my-life-with-drow/ you will see a similar looking arachnid, and remember, Lolth isn’t the only Drow Goddess
