Beast Fables - Comic 50 - Chauntilak prepares his quarry while Thorn narrates

Medieval food blogs were a lot more intense.

Medieval Moment: This comic is referencing a scene in Sir Gawain and the Green Knight where Bertilak and his men prepare the deer they’ve just hunted in the field, before bringing it back to the castle. The scene is impressive in its exactness in properly preparing a quarry, and meant to show off Bertilak’s skill in all things manly. It’s a little too gruesome to copy here, but you can give it a read on lines 1319-1371 if you’re interested.
