The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 194 - Melkor only knocks once

9th March 2015 (10:46)

According to canon, Melkor was able to carry away all the jewels of Formenos clutched in his left hand. He must have really big hands...

The detail that he was hoping to find Fëanor at home (and kill him, in revenge for the earlier insult when Fëanor slammed the door in his face) is from the expanded story in HoME.


Part 194: Melkor only knocks once



Next time: Part 195: Scene of the crime

Chibis by tektek.org
Original story by and copyright to J R R Tolkien, ed. C Tolkien: Primarily based on the Silmarillion, but incorporating ideas from the 12-volume History of Middle Earth series.

Poor Finwë. :-(

I wonder why he didn't choose to return from the dead?

The answer to your question is actually going to be something covered in upcoming cartoons; it's a story from HoME.

Oooooooh! You're gonna put *that* into the comic? Sweet! I was hoping so!

I really like how you portrayed Finwe's demise here; no grand speeches, no dramatic last stands, Melkor just kills him while shoving him out of the way. It adds tragedy and underlines Melkor's evil.
Plus the sprite editing is quite good too.

Thanks!

The adventures of Finwë after his death are coming your way probably next week.
