The path presented to Child by Decision is that of a Child of Light. In order to have a chance to overcome death Child must become baptized in the light to be a follower of Faith and inherit his mighty spirit. This is obviously the event that serves as the namesake for track three and it is analogous to when…

In creating names for characters in Soul of Suw, I wanted the names to be meaningful and easy to remember. Midnye stands for midnight which means the end of a day which is analogous to the end of life. Snoogums was my mother’s toddler name for me and the character represents the joy of youth. And Faith represents the holy…

This brief battle at the end of the first issue was suggested by the crew at Terminus Media. Terminus Media is an artist production team based out of Atlanta, Georgia. They specialize in producing comics and suggested the first issue should have some sort of pay off by having a battle or conflict near the end. The original script for…

Stressors were inspired by an event that occurred when I was 11 years old. While playing outside I was stung by a wasp or yellow jacket and I ran in crying to my dad. It was the middle of the day and he was asleep because he worked the nightshift at his job. So when I woke him crying he…

“I am Midnye and I am the fate of all souls.” Once again, this is a reference to the reign of Midnye I mentioned a couple of pages ago. She represents one of the greatest barriers to freedom in the lives of souls. She ensures that their time as conscious beings is limited for the sake of keeping constraints on…

When I originally conceived of Midnye speaking I did not want her to sound like any other entity. I wanted her to have an ominous language and style of her own. The inspiration for Midnye speaking backwards came from the albums Creepin’ on ah Come Up & E. 1999 Eternal from the musical artists Bone Thugs n Harmony. On various…

As the rain falls in this scene the inspiration for the title of this track is revealed…The Midnye Reign. The track title was originally Midnight Rain because whenever the supremium of death is close, the clouds in the sky turn purple and purple rain begins to fall…this is not a Prince reference. But it is symbolic because the rain clouds…

This entire scene with Snoogums and the stressors/supremiums was not originally a part of the story. It was added much later during my college years as the story slowly became a mythology in my mind. As I developed the history and backstory to Soul of Suw it required an additional scene to the beginning of the first album World of…

The shot of the supremiums with the stressors was actually a partial mistake on my part. Only stressors (the bug-like creatures) were supposed to be seen during this scene but in an error of miscommunication, I wrote supremiums into the script to accompany the stressors. I was attempting to signify that stressors are supremiums but the way I wrote the…

Child often wears the color blue in his attire. Blue is my favorite color and in Soul of Suw blue is the color of freedom. The sky is blue because when you are able to touch the sky it means you are free. But it seems the final panel of this page hints towards something coming to threaten that freedom.…
