The first wave of attacks is over - how bad are the casualties? Did any of our enemies get inside the city? Our heroes take stock and make two (stupid, stupid) discoveries! Only five issues left in this critically acclaimed one-of-a-kind series. Who knew Armageddon would be so much fun?
This chapter is a short story of 4 or 5 pages taking place in Thorn's dream. The Red Dragon asks Thorn to look into a light and try to see beyond it. The Red Dragon then tells the story of the Queen of Dragons, Mim, wherein she was subject to demonic possession by the Lord of the Locust. This caused a battle that generated the valley that forms the story's setting. Readers see Mim for the first time, though this story had been mentioned in the earlier collection Rock Jaw: Master of the Eastern Border by its titular character, the mountain lion Roque Ja, though he had scorned to believe it historical.
