Expecting to Fly is a solo comic Daniel made back in 1997 and sent to me that same year. I was then the editor of a comics fanzine, Impuls, and had been working with Geir and Daniel on the Chronicles of the Witch Queen comics. Expecting to Fly was something different! I wasn't initially sure if I liked it - it was one of those stream-of-consciousness things, and had this pale, hatched look to it that I don't find immediately appealing. But eventually I realised that it wasn't that far removed from stuff that I liked a lot, like Moebius' original Airtight Garage comics. Those, too, didn't grip me immediately, but once I got them, I was hooked. The same soon happened with Expecting to Fly. Don't expect any of it to make a whole lot of sense; just sit back and enjoy the trip.
The connection between this and Chronicles of the Witch Queen will soon become clear - in fact, it will be clear as soon as Stöwer and Brockmöller are revealed!
