a hound and his horse


Oromë is a mighty lord. If he is less strong than Tulkas, he is more dreadful in anger. Oromë loved the lands of Middle-earth, and he left them unwillingly and came last to Valinor. He is a hunter of monsters and fell beasts, and he delights in horses and in hounds. Nahar is the name of his horse, white in the sun, and shining silver at night. The Valaróma is the name of his great horn, the sound of which is like the upgoing of the Sun in scarlet, or the sheer lightning cleaving the clouds. The spouse of Oromë is Vána, the Ever-young; she is the younger sister of Yavanna. All flowers spring as she passes and open if she glances upon them; and all birds sing at her coming.

I’m working on a comic in my free time called Railroad Blues - a western/fantasy adventure, starring this guy! Meet Avery Lau, a rancher-turned-bounty-hunter who roams the desert with only his horse and his hound for company. As if life wasn’t already hard enough, Avery is cursed with undeath, and every day is a test of his will and courage.

Despite this, he tries his best to live as normal a life as possible, earning a meager living hunting down outlaws. Believing himself to be a man of peace, he always takes his targets in alive - though, accidents happen from time to time.

I have no idea when it will be ready. But I’m going to keep posting stuff here as I work on it.
