[Long Description: The comic opens out in the ash tundra. The White Ghost, Ashe, is clothed in a thick parka and fur shawl. He brandishes a spear in the middle of a circular patch of cleared snow.
Morgan loiters at the peripheries with a scabbard and shortsword. His things are all bundled up by a felled log. A mocking-owl is perched there, keeping a close eye on the proceedings.
Ashe: You won’t always be prepared.
And you’ll have to contend with a lot of things you don’t want to, out here.
In the next panel, Morgan meets Ashe’s challenge with equal parts trepidation and intensity. It falters in the following panel. He glances back at his comfort zone—his bow and quiver propped up against the log.
Morgan looks back at Ashe. The killing end of the spear is pointed his way.
He rushes the White Ghost.]
