Now after this last page and this page, I'm curious to know what Beauty's mom was like in the past or her past in general. Its only 2 pages and its obvious she's an interesting character.

I love his weirded-out face.

It's so interesting to see them like this.

*squints harder* "I guess you'll do as a possible boyfriend for my daughter."

This interaction is teaching us so much about both of them. I am excited to see what else we learn in the upcoming pages.

beast looks so outraged when beauty's mum asks him to stand up it's kind of hilarious.

also I know he's supposed to be wearing trousers of some sort but I am choosing to imagine that the Beast wears a long cloak and a miniskirt whenever he meets potential contract-signers (to distract myself from the angst)

Congratulations. You just made me spit-take milk on my computer.

I could see him regularly wearing a tunica or chiton, since he's such a gigantic neoclassical fanboy.

This scene reminds me so much of the Disney version's 'come into the light' scene, I think Belle even makes that exact facial expression Beauty's mom makes in panel 2. If it's deliberate, lovely callback to a very influential retelling of the story, if not, hilarious coincidence

I was thinking the same thing! Especially with the quirked eyebrow in panels 2 and 4.

I freaking love Beast's wtf face

Hmm. She knows that whatever deal she's making here is going to set up one of her daughters to have to live with Beast, I think.

It's the only thing that makes the way she's eyeing him make sense.

The three sisters are so different. Maybe only Beauty is her daughter.

That might be my favorite "shots fired" line yet. Not mincing words today, are we?

This definitely reminds me of the "Come into the light" scene from the Disney version, but the Beast here is much more self-deprecating. "As abomination, at your service." Ouch. But also, interesting, since this repeats the idea that he is meant to help the humans who have come here to make contracts.

what is this all about? I cant believe there is a future son in law inspected. For an unborn Baby. knitting a fate for the children? Nooo

I kind of like the squint that Beauty’s mom is giving, a similar call back to the Disney’s “come into the light moment”. Was this intentional? Either way, it’s well utilized here!
