Um, cubs.

Cubs.

This is not the right place OR the right time.

Get the heck out.

Although technically they're already running

God damn this was a great page, the sheer amount of intensity seen in this reminds me of the same amount of intensity and urgency during a zombie apocalypse. You could of just had Africa yell for her kids to run once, told them to get out of here, made her fight Chui, but no you decided not to take the easy way out and that's why I love this page so much, my favorite page out of the entire comic. Africa made the threat feel so real by repeating the same word several times and trying to run to her kids before Chui gets to them, and it just gives that pure sense of urgency that makes you see she's also panicking because those kids are going to die and they're running in the wrong direction. It's like that feeling you get when you see your kid running out into traffic and you're trying to yell for them to stop but they won't.

Honest I hope for more pages like this, where the actions speak louder than the words and the story is full of character because of it, rather than a story that's only real focus is progressing the plot thus doesn't have any of these drawn out nicely for emotional effect moments. This is a refreshment and if the most of the comic can be summed up in this page for the sheer amount of quality, I'm hooked. (Which I think it will be from the scene where she was hunting the one gazelle and endured that pain for her kids)

I will admit, I didn't know what to think of it at the beginning when I saw the cover and just thought it'd be a light-hearted mediocre cheetah story, which would of not been my cup of tea since I prefer canines, but I'm glad to be proven wrong. Still not really used to traditional art with coloured pages since it reminds me of crayon, but that's just me being nitpicky and otherwise I'm a fan, you certainly know how to write struggle and emotions and it makes the comic worth reading!
What do you think?

I guess in the wildlife the female will confront the male and attack him badly for him to leave alone her cubs ... Female Leopard can be fuckin hardcore ....i've seen one in a documentary attacking a male Leopard ...he fleed in a tree and the female jumped right in his leg while he was hanging from a branch and she make him fall hard on the ground its was epic ..

I was looking at this page again and it looks like Chui has some overly large canines.  Maybe it's just me but that's what it looks like.

Oh dang. :o Suppose all I can do now if shout, "The other way! Run the other way!" together with the rest of the readers. This is very powerful last three panels... but I can't help but noticing that Africa is falling behind in the 2nd panel... as I mentioned earlier, she is exhausted after the hunt while Chui is strong and fresh... :( :(

I feel like the little girls gonna die... She's  not shown great recognition to events and seriousness like her brother has, I feel like he'd listen to his mother but she'll most likely hesitate to listen and ask why and that would be her undoing if she does...

Me too :( I think it will be Binti, the cub which will die, because her innocense.. or... maybe because ARVEN doesn't want to follow the tradition, not making Africa teach the rules of the wild world for a female (like her mother did with her :/ and like you can see in page 44.. Africa take more time with Binti and she is to pushy with Mosi making him try another technique of hunting :P) and because of that... maybe.. will be Mosi to survive... Making Africa rising a male pup... And maybe it will be Mosi who will cross the lines between his grandmother's rules and his own's (because I see a juvenil Africa in him, a young soul who wants to be the best for honor his mother and that only wants to explore and be friendly with everybody.. although Mosi has a good sense of the danger :P)
I was a little confusing but if you want to ask something...go ahead, please :)
