With this page, Princess April launches fearlessly into performing her first good deed.
With little dialog — again Letitia’s art imitating the silent film motifs she knew so well – the scene is established in a classic monomyth’s Initiation cycle:
“The road of trials is a series of tests, tasks, or ordeals that the person must undergo to begin the transformation. Often … these tests … occur in threes.”1
Clearly a good deed is to Princess April,
what trials are to Harry Potter – each is an act to temper and hone the hero’s or heroine’s mettle, all so that they can complete the monomyth cycle.
Until next week dear readers….
