Lecter Castle

As a big fan of Hannibal and an art historian, I’ve always been intrigued by this castle that we can see as the Lecter family’s castle in season three. So I did some research, and I found out that it is actually this castle : château de Noisy (or château Miranda) in Belgium.

And I also found out that this castle was abandonned since 1991, and that it is now threatened to be destroyed (Wikipedia even says that the castle has actually been destroyed in October 2017, but I couldn’t find any proof of it).

So I just wanted to share these pictures with you, enjoy this beautiful castle, and cry, maybe, over its fate and destruction.


I’ve been sitting on this for awhile. I started this storyboard/comic hybrid after the Raishan fight was initiated underground after Thordak, and just… never finished it. At this point, I’ve kind of made the call to not continue further. There’s just too many other things I could do, and there’s problems with this that I don’t care to really fix. (The first panel of “page” two was finalized as a Talks Machina submission ages ago.)

I had the thought of Percy and Vex talking about their death experiences after fighting Raishan and Thordak, as let’s be honest, they’ve had some drastically different ones. I’m super happy with what was happening here, even if I think some characterization is pretty off at this point.

Sorry if the last bit is illegible. Like I said, didn’t finish. But hey, now you can see how scrappy my thumbnails are. And the origin of why I draw Cabal’s Ruin with a blue feather attached all the time (as that’s what Vex is doing, if you can understand my scribbles). Patreon got to see this a few weeks ago, albeit at a slightly bigger size.
