Yes, we've dropped the 'low fantasy' and 'dark fantasy' monikers that we used to throw around. We're just fantasy now. For the record, we started laying the groundwork for Wulfgard in 2005. So yes, TES had already been doing its Empire thing for a while. But I just love ancient Rome - it's probably my favorite historical period. So Wulfgard is sort of a world in the transition period between Rome and the Middle Ages.
Ah, that is indeed unfortunate. Though I think it would be a stretch to call Wulfgard low-fantasy, considering all the various monsters and magic stuff we have seen in this issue alone. :Then again, it certainly does have elements of low-fantasy, so I guess it depends how you define low-fantasy.
Personally, I love both high and low fantasy if it's done right. The high-fantasy LOTR will (obviously) always be the ultimate fantasy universe, however after studying the War of the Roses rather in-depth, I personally am not upset by the current focus on low-fantasy, and I really like the elements of both that are incorporated into Wulfgard. Oh, and I assume all the Imperial and Roman vibes I'm getting were also conceived long before The Elder Scrolls went for that aesthetic?
I'll try to have a new comic page this weekend!
EDIT: Okay maybe not this weekend, but trust me - it'll be worth the wait, I think.
