Here is finally episode 27, the first episode of a trilogy of episode about the Coronation of Coriander. This first part happens before the ceremony. It introduces a bit more Coriander. We already saw her on previous episode, but never really understood she was a princess (except last panel in "The Pyjama party".) I never introduced her passion for robots too. This episode tries to (finally) solve that. We also see Qualicity for the first time.

This episode was done during the month of October as a challenge with a deadline. I'm happy to be able to post it today on the 31 after really hard days and sleepless nights. I hope you'll like it and thanks you for your patience (moving to a new house and the DIY took me time).

Thanks again to the contributors, translators, the supporters and all the readers!

I like expressions of Thyme and a man ahead of her in the last panel. That mischievous old lady!

link Olivier Jolly  

Great chapter !
The panel with shichimi and coriander after being shocked is golden :)

link Scott Petrovic  

I really liked this one and the writing (and all the artwork of course). The whole "lie" situation thing is really good.

link AlbinoCookie  

I love the creative turn on this! A lie detector isn't something you'd normally find in a universe with magic. Leave it to David Revoy to turn all expectations on their heads!

link Jane  

Love it! ❤ The story is great, and the art is beautiful too!

link leoshnoire  

Worth the wait and really fun! Glad to see everyone back at it :)

link Konstantin  

I have waited for this episode the whole October since the post from 1st. It was pleasure for me to read it today! Once this comics has given me the impulse to learn drawing.

link Aster Wang  

Somewhat it is quite interesting that in the future Europe would use AI lie detectors "to empower border agents to increase the accuracy and efficiency of border checks".

I guess those countries are just inspired by David's comic 😂

link artelnjeru  

the artwork is INCREDIBLE!!! the story is hilarious! Interesting that a lie zap is the bug, hehe as if that is a bad thing... hehehe

link Jack  

As always great job! Thanks! But I have one question... What kind of psychological issue(s) does Pepper have? The robot shocked her when she said she doesn't have any, so she has and knows about it.

link Craig Maloney  

For one thing she desperately want the approval of the Chaosah Witches, and will do things to get that approval. See for more exploration of that angle. Also her desires to be a good witch as outlined here:

Pepper is not perfect. He has some emotional scars to contend with. So the Psychologist-Bot is pointing those out to her in its own non-subtle way.

link Barb  

Oooooh, I like this episode so much! Coriander is soooooo beautiful, that's cool that she is a princess. I'm so interested in the next part of her story.

link Jack  

Thanks Craig. That was very informative.

link Mark Munroe  

Loved this episode, and I see that you are going into story arcs. I love the characters and Coriander is both pretty and brave. Will she survive the assassination attempt and become a full fledged queen? Only time will tell.

By the way, an artist friend of mine is hoping to turn a fantasy story of mine into a French comic album. I hope to see it published.

Peace out.

This one was really nice and helpful. It's kinda been a while since we had a comic with Coriander and Sichimi in it, so this was a real treat! You're comic was worth the wait, as they always are. I actually had no idea Coriander was a princess, but I knew about her being an inventor. I think I saw it in one of your sidepictures or something. But it was really nice we got to see it directly! I can't wait for the next!!

link Evileilapix  

I have literally read this 3 times because of the BEAUTIFUL artwork (Coriander is probably my favorite character). One thing that REALLY stood out to me was the clothing design. Awesome work, as always.

link Deepanshu Garg  

I am waiting for your next episode ! These are awesome , Funny , Wonderful , Help to get better English and it also available in many languages . Thanks to Author of the Pepper and Carrot .

Je suis un peu pertubé par la bulle «il nous reste peu de temps et le couronnement commence dans trois heures», c’est deux fois la même information, il reste peu de temps parce que le couronnement commence dans trois heures.
Je suis natif anglophone donc je peux pas juger du texte d’origine mais la VF sonne très bizarre pour cette bulle en tous cas.

Bon épisode à part ça, bon mix entre humour et histoire :-)

link Côme  

*Je suis PAS natif anglophone

link David Revoy  

Merci Côme!
Je vais remonter l'info; il y a toujours de la place pour de l'amélioration.
La version original est l'anglais pour cette épisode et ceux qui vont venir (depuis ep23 je pense);
travailler le storyboard en anglais me permets de le partager avec les contributeurs.
Le français a été traduit (j'ai fait parti des relecteurs pour le fr).

I love their facial expressions in the "WAIT!!" panel!

Hei david! What about webtoon and tapas?😊😊

link David Revoy  

Ho ho, that's right.
Thank you for the reminder about this platforms.

link Artctrl  

Wow terrorism. Knife attack. Need a bomb next.

link Una Polpetta  

Btw, I looked up a bit in those months and i can say that webtoon is better than tapas if we are talking about "free", on tapas there are almost only "pay-to-read" comics, instead webtoon is totally free

link David Revoy  

What do you think about their term of use? I read them and I couldn't say I agree with it (but it might be ok in the end and compatible with my license). I wonder if other artist on this platform really know for what they sign in? It's like they are giving more than all-use of their artworks to the platform, for all region and all time... I need to re-read.

link Yabo "Yalyn" Vinkindo  

While I cannot say much about Webtoons, Tapas is something I've been checking once a month and I waited too long to the point where Tapas did sort-of-sneakly-add-in-the-TOS-and-hope-no-one-will-pay-attention issue. Which is the Right of First refusal. This was around April-May 2017 by the way.

Now I don't understand how CC content works along with that but it would not matter because they have removed Right of First Refusal after the backlash. Hopefully more eyes will be on that ToS.

It's just that I where to make "free culture" content, I want *everyone* to be able to own it rather than view it. Not to just one-self, nor the company, but to everyone.

Also not fan of Tapas' user interface for viewing comics on desktop. Mobile is somewhat okay. But I think I am trailing off the topic so I'll stop.

link David Revoy  

Hey Yalyn, thank you for your detailed feedback and the link to the article; for sure this is helping me to collect more info about this platforms. If I join one, or the two platforms; I'll do a blog post about it.

I just found this comic last night and I absolutely love it. I read the whole thing by now (couldn't sleep and needed something to do). I will spread the word.

link David Revoy  

Thank you for the feedback! ;-)

link Anonymouse  

Shichimi is cute!

link Abraham  

This comic is so european it hurts (but in a good way!) old timely houses, witches, wood houses, extravagant hats...

Keep the awesome work! And greetings from Mexico!

link Henry  

Ist dass das letzte. Könen sie nich noch eine machen

link Korfi2Go  

Ich gehe schwer davon aus, dass weitere Folgen bereits in Arbeit sind. Dieser Comic wird halt nur alle paar Monate mal geupdated. Da müssen wir uns wohl ein wenig in Geduld üben.

link Midgard  

Das stimmt, Episode 28 ist gerade in der Vorproduktion.

link Joseph  

Nice one! But there is one thing, I did not expected. Is it intended that plastic bags exist in Hereva?

link Moini  

Could it also be magical, translucent palace guard evidence packaging paper? Waterproof, magic-proof and fully recyclable?

link vampirewarsuk  

I got to say that i love this comic

link David Revoy  

That's a really interesting detail you noticed Joseph. Yes, that maybe an inconsistency.
Have you got an idea how I could replace the transparent plastic bag by something else?

Moini idea is fun, but would require panel to explain xD

link TomTom  

Bonjour, je trouve la BD vraiment cool et je voudrais t'aider financièrement mais le problème est que j'ai pas le droit de faire des dons avec mon argent. Du coup j'ai trouvé une solution pour faire un don gratuit mais qui te rapporte de l'argent. Cet plateforme s'appelle Utip. Le lien si t'es intéressé par ce système : . Sinon continue comme ça c'est top !

Welp, you know what the programmers say, it isn't a bug, its a feature.

Dear Author
Thank you for writting for everyone! This comic is very interesting.
I wish you post episode-28 now! hihi!
Thanks alot!

link David Revoy  

Hi Jane, thank you very much; episode 28 release is for today :) I'm working hard on it.

Some thoughts on the plastic baggie:

Maybe you could use jellyfish, or something from

Alternatively, show the guard wrapping the knife in a piece of cloth, but that would require a complete redrawing of the guard.

link David Revoy Author,

I like the idea of Jellyfish :)
When I worked on the book, I revisited this page and thought again on the plastic-bag case and finally; it is not so unconsistent with all invention found in Qualicity (and I really like how it remind everyone an "evidence" having a knife in a pastic bag). I can even imagine doing a story to justify plastic with plastic bags coming from Qualicity :D

link Valley  

UwU this is so funny :)

link King  

I really enjoy all of your pages. As you can see, I'm still catching up on your past work.

For the 2nd panel, the banners/posters that say "Her Majesty's Coronation... Queen Corriander", what font did you use? I don't suppose it was handwritten. Also, did you use Krita's transform tool to put that text in perspective?

link Lilie :)  

Maintenant, il nous faut une réplique du robot de Coriandre et la criminalité va être en chute libre XD

link Maria Schneider  

I live in New Mexico, USA in a cattle ranching community. I really love the cowgirl vibe of Pepper in this one. It probably is not cowgirl vibe on purpose, but her hat and clothing have a ranch feel to me with the hat all curled at the ends and the color of it too. Great episode with lots of creativity. I especially love how the ladies all look after being zapped!
