“If you’re arguing with a Confessor, you’ve already lost.”

– a popular saying among adherents to The Order of Truth; not yet taught by Merric to his daughter

I intended this entire Origins arc to be much shorter than it ended up being, and now this Confessor Nora’s Interrogation sub-arc has gone on longer than I expected too. My typical aversion to “talking head” comics is one of the main reasons I’ve been taking so long to get through this part of the story, but slowly and surely, I’m getting there. After spending months writing a conversation that’s just supposed to last a few minutes in-universe, I’m not too sure how reliable my perception of time is anymore. Hopefully the pacing of this scene works out in the end, once it’s all able to be read in one sitting.
