Coming back to this new series of posts I'm calling Comic Commentary; we continue from where the very first few pages of The Mannamong left off. Vianne and Kali haven't even had their names addressed yet, but it's clear they're mother and daughter as the pages illustrated Vianne's concern over the girl. In this post, we get to see these following pages define that relationship further and tie it to their situation: Kali's abnormal fevers.

In contrast to the earlier pages, these pages reflect a more comforting tone with the warm colors and tight space between the mother and child. Taking shelter from the dark storm allows these characters to take a breather and converse. This is when we get to know them and learn how and why they’re in this predicament.
