Whoa! So many questions he could ask here! Why is she so buff? Why was there smoke when she finished chowing down on the coins? Why hadn't the monks figured out that she eats metal? Why were they keeping her in the first place? And what about Naomi??

But really, this is great. I like how immediately concerned she is for him as soon as she has the energy to do anything besides try to survive. I also really like how softspoken yet direct she is.

I would like to know, though, where the emphasis falls on her question: is it "Shall *I* carry *you* this time?"
or "Shall I *carry* you this time?"
The first makes more sense, but the second is how I initially read it, and that shaped my interpretation of his response sort of like, "THIS time? How many times do you plan for running away to happen like this, and will you not carry me every time?" Which may work, or.

Long comment.

@doge91: Well, I meant it like the first one. I honestly didn't italicize it just because it's a comic.

I know, I know, that's not a good reason, but EGAD people use and abuse the heck out of italics in (superhero) comics. Having EVERY other WORD italicized, NO matter IF it MAKES sense, is thus a cardinal sin in my mind. Again, probably it shouldn't be, but...
