It's too late to rewrite this schene, but in retrospect, this page isn't really needed. Only the bit about the daughters needed to be told, and it could have been worked somewhere else.
The rest, with Þrym sentencing her to have no aspect of a normal life at all and spend the rest of her life as some single purpose tool, it could have been shown later rather than explained ahead.
Besides, his plan can't even work. Nobody at all distracting her in any way? He's not obeyed this strictly!

Well, he's got my vote for son-of-a b*tch of the year! >_<

I really like this page, especially the second panel with Ellen showing why she's different than the other twenty of Þrym's wives with just a smack to the face.

Sometimes you don't need words to get a point across!

Glad you mention that last thing. So far in the comic, while I didn't use actual thought bubbles (I dislike those) I did write some thoughts inside panels, at least twice. I don't generally like that and want to keep it minimal.
But with Ellen, I intend on avoiding it altogether. No cheats either. No character who somehow knows what she wants to say and voices it for the readers. And she's too stubborn to learn to write. So her role has to be written entirely without words. I hope I can make it work.

Page is good, and we all know how much a bad guy likes to ham it up in front of their victim, I say the scene works pretty well! =)

I guess he just doesn't mind being a cartoon villain, then!
