Wow, that was surprising. I expected that evil Argus turned into dust or vanished away and Beast regained his human form. What now?
KatieKat 20th Jul 7:10 AM, 2018
Wow...what beautiful framing. Fwiw, I appreciate that the original Argus received a proper memorial (with a cross). I know in the olden days suicide was considered a mortal sin, and if Argus' body had been found, he would have been consigned to unsanctified ground. If Beast can recognize that he's not damned to hell, then there's hope!

Just realized something. Because human Argus should be behind him but we see a cross instead... does that mean that he has vanished and he's been talking to his grave or that he finally conquered the moment and ... it's morphin time?

Judging by what I am seeing here, the Beast will not change back into Argus. He has evolved passed that now.

Well, he won't go back to the emotional/mental state he was once in, but just as the grave in this page is symbolic of that, becoming human again would (and hopefully will) be symbolic of regaining his agency and responsibility to be a good person who comes with things as best he can.
MK_Wizard 20th Jul 8:18 PM, 2018
That's a good way of putting it. I do think he's going to become human again, but more importantly, he's become a better person.

Oohhhh big moment for him. You'll be okay though Beast/Argus *hugs*

Honestly, this is one of the deepest, most meaningful, and most well-thought-out comics I've read online. You weave hard and difficult concepts (suicide, relationships, families, social pressures, etc.) beautifully into the original narrative of BATB. It's been such a pleasure reading this comic thus far, and I've seen it grow so extensively and marvelously! Keep it going!

Okay, just want to be sure I'm clear (fanbase help me out...) -

Argus had a really difficult life and was betrayed by the women he knew, so he commuted suicide next to/on top of this scared (Magic?) fountain. Due to this, the crazy Castle took him as it's avatar to pay his debt for desecrating the fountain. And the Beast has been dragging around the guilt ever since, yes?

Finally back! There was a big move, and so much else happening... I'm so glad to get back! I missed everyone, comic characters, and real people!

Wow, a cross!

"I think I'm finally ready to find that out."--Oh, Beast, I want to hug you. I'm so happy for you! Also, that last panel is stunning, Megan. The cross with the briar growing over it--the symbol of the castle that the Beast is stepping beyond--it's such a beautiful way to show the Beast putting his past to rest and leaving the castle and its curse behind him.
