I can proudly say this is my geekiest comic yet.
Just finished reading Lord of the Rings and even though I can understand why the Druedain were cut from the movies, the vision Tolkien paints of the Pukel-men statues stuck with me. I actually wanted them to remain a mystery, but shortly afterwards you meet Middle-Earth’s cavemen. Oh well.
And there’s a nod to them in the movies, when Elrond is going up the road on his way to give Narsil to Aragorn. I GUESS.
