I Know Something You Don't . . .

Well, it’s been a busy week as usual over here at Single Edge Studios. Words were written. Pages were drawn. Long, contentious conversations were had over exactly how one pronounces ‘M’Kott.’

Ultimately, because I made up the word, I get to dictate its pronunciation. It’s pronounced ‘Mangrove Throat Wobbler.’ Some of you will get that.

In all seriousness, it’s pronounced ‘M’KaughT.’ Think Mr. Garrison saying ‘M’kay,’ remove the ‘kay,’ and add ‘caught’ with a hard T.

The really interesting part is what the word actually means . . .

NOTE: Leigh doesn’t even know. In fact, no one knows. Just me. MWHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Speaking of which, we’ll be at the Stumptown Comics Fest in about two weeks. If you happen to be in the Portland area, come on by and say ‘hello.’ And if you ask, I’ll tell you what ‘M’Kott’ means.

And then, you’ll be one of a very small, very exclusive club who know. You’ll be able to drop hints to your friends that you know and they’ll be quite jealous, ‘cause they don’t know what a made-up word in a fantasy comic means.


Okay, probably not.

Have a pleasant and safe weekend.

Mr. Mackey said "M'Kay" but no need to quibble. :) BTW, I recently discovered Wayfarer's Moon and I absolutely love it.
