So he was hiding from her and/or testing her. :)
Oh hiding, most definitely hiding. You'll find out why in the next comic :D
Oooh, I've been wondering what the story was behind his unusual appearance since he turned up.
Yeeeah he's not NEARLY as good at hiding as he wants to be....
it's something I struggle with as an artist though, walking the fine line between 'hunh, that's uncanny' and 'um what the hell IS that?' Hopefully that's working.
I was definitely intregued rather than confused, if that helps!
