Not much of a surprise when I say that I really enjoyed these two mini-comics. Weighing in at a mere 12 pages each they still carry enough entertainment value to put many full-size comics to shame. Both are wonderful additions to the mythology of Amys Goredd and well worth the price.
These were written with the famed scholar, the Dragon Lalo, and relate two tales of the Goreddi trickester Pau-Henoa. In issue #1 we get Pau-Henoas origin in which he is created by a witch named Erina who hears her biological clock ticking. But like all good godling creation myths, Pau-Henoa is created from a rabbit. The rest of the mini-comic goes on to relate examples of Pau-Henoas youthful mischief and how he came to be banished from the Fickle-fern wood and set loose upon the world.
Issue #2, entitled The Log Baby, has Pau-Henoa playing a trick on a poor lonely couple who so want a child they treat a common log as if it were a baby (named Piney no less).
