So this is where the problems start. After all, conflict has that nasty way of making us judge our enemies by their worst examples, and ourselves by our best intentions.

That’s a lovely close up of her face in panel 3. The art can sometimes over-express lines of shadow on faces but the shading’s always pretty good. The closeup alleviates the former while better demonstrating the latter.
I like how you can see them both digging in. It starts as a simple conversation but the moment that the Dhuv army could be wrong Christophe looks determined to defend his country and you can practically see the armored plates come out. The moment he denies what she “knows” to be true she looks ready to belt him across the face. I have a feeling they will be learning a lot about each other from this conversation.
I like the subtle language difficulties here, like how she sticks to simple words, needs him to explain twice on occasion, and sometimes fudges it (do-less, for example). Based on my Korean friends, it’s a very realistic depiction of a struggling non-native speaker.
Everyone wants to believe they are the good guy, no one wants to believe the worst about them could be true.
