Flashback: Aster, as a child, is hiding behind a stone with a friend to spy on the trolls. A woman troll comes and lift the stone to pick ant eggs, crushing the friend without even noticing.
Fairies are right to distrust the trolls, they can kill them without even when they don't want to.
I like how Myces isn't even paying attention in the last panel. Nice brief flashback reel too, flashbacks are always good when they're brief!
Multiple-page flashbacks break the rythm for me, so when I feel like I need one I want to keep it as short as possible.
There are some character background stories that I want to draw though, and I think what I'll do is host them as a different comic and link to them as extras. That way new readers can still read the archive without jumping back and forth in time, and read the extras after they're done.
The film reel style is a brilliant idea for flash backs!
Ant eggs: nature's cake sprinkles! :D
