The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 177 - Arachnophobia

Warning for giant cartoon spiders! Today's comic is behind a cut, for the benefit of any arachnophobes on my flist. It's more than a year since I did an LJ-cut, wonder if I can still remember how to do it?

One thing I missed earlier is that in canon, Melkor and Ungoliant actually know each other - she was one of the Ainur who originally followed Melkor in his initial revolt, but then left him to go her own way. With hindsight I might have shown her in Melkor's army back in the early cartoons - but on the other hand, that would spoil the surprise now.
