Oh.. No one guessed it! It's ATLAS! Atlas, holding up the world.. and holding up the roots of Yggdrasil while he's at it. Because he's badass that way.

Ohhh I get it! Hes holding the world tree thus hes holding the world! Not sure who I feel bad for. AF for making things worse or Atlas having to hold it when it's worse lol.

Oh and while I was joking about the black knight I actually expected it to be Gaia.

Not sure why but this is my favourite one to date

@Spikes - this is what happens when mythologies collide. Someone ends up having to carry the load. In this case, Atlas :)

I kind of assumed you were joking about the Black Knight. But if a killer bunny shows up someday...

@Emperor Luna - I like this page a lot too. I really like AF's expressions in the last two panels.

You know I have become kinda curious. If you had to pick voice actors for your characters who would you pick? I personally always heard Grey DeLisle's voice for AF.

@Spikes - I honestly don't know enough about voice actors to name any off the top of my head. If I were casting a movie though, I've thought Emma Stone would be a good choice for AF and Sam Rockwell for Mika.

Only problem is that Atlas holds up the universe, not the world. Although you could say that since Yggdrasil spans the Nine Worlds of Norse myth, propping up the tree is propping up the universe.

@Nameless - you are correct. Atlas holds up the universe, but Bullfinch is also magical realm existing on earth. So when Atlas talks about holding up the world, he could be referring to holding up the world of Bullfinch.

Or I could have gone with the old interpretations of Atlas holding the world on his shoulders.

Or a less likely scenario is I just made a mistake, but c'mon... how likely is *that* ? :)
