Well this is a tense situation...

I like the fact that one chair is slightly pulled away from the table...

And the flowers on the mantel? Anything specific there? (Again, didn't even notice first time 'round...too absorbed by that gorgeous and intriguing eye. :D)

Good catch! It's witch hazel and almond. He does have interesting eyes, doesn't he? They were a very late design decision...he used to have the same blank black eyes as the rest of the characters, but there is a scene that I'm very much looking forward to that called for something more uncanny...

Uncanny is good. Very good. :) And witch hazel and almond:

A spell
Indiscretion or hope (common and flowering varieties, respectively)

I like that hint of indiscretion (whose? when?) alongside the more easily interpreted spell and hope....

Ahem. Excuse me. Maybe he's known it since she was a child, or her father told him, or because magic - I'm sure he has a reason. That still must be very unsettling for her.

Anyway, I love how the detail in this dining room (look, flowers! Look, the legs of the table look like beast legs! And her chair is already out for her!). The Beast being in shadow sets the mood very, very well, as does his eyes. I'm glad you decided to differentiate them from the all-black eyes of the other characters. Eeeek, I'm so excited they are meeting! Even if this is a re-read!

You portray light and shadow so well, and it shows particularly in this black-and-white graphic novel. The way light reflects off the chairs, the silhouette of the Beast...perfection.

Looking at these older pages, I was doing fun thing with light and dark. I should try and ramp that back up in the current stuff.

The single eye in the dark! Wow! Spooky but a lot of humanity in this glimpse of the soul.
