Time to learn a little bit more about the inhabitants of this hidden village deep within the caves of madness.

Seems everyone is happy to see the return of the lost couple.

Well, sorry for the LONG wait. But life has not been kinda to either the author or artist of this comic.

We are pleased to introduce the next page of the comic though, so please enjoy

That... really doesn't follow. The daughter of a male leader is fairly likely to get a lot of attention if she returns after a long absence, too... and that male leader's female partner is likely to be fancy and well-regarded, too.

Not saying the society CAN'T be matriarchal, just that this to-do doesn't really say much in that directions. It feels more like he's reaching that conclusion because it's the right one, rather than because it's an obvious step; effect is prompting cause.

Actually, since the female village leader was visible right there, it was a fair guess.

I don't see a sign on her saying "Village Leader". She'd probably be decked out if she were the village leader's wife, too (as I said in my prior comment) - and no less eager to welcome back a missing child. Again, it's coming to the conclusion based on assigned narrative roles rather than on evidence the characters actually have access to.

Actually, given that there is no well dressed male coming to welcome her back, it is a fair guess.

It doesn't necessarily follow. There are any number of quite plausible explanations - her father could be busy elsewhere at the particular instant they've shown up, for one.

Which is kind of my point. There are any number of explanations for the scene in front of them, whether or not one immediately assumes that that woman is in charge of everybody. (Even if she is, it could be a completely gender-agnostic leadership structure, to produce yet another example; or one with both female and male leaders in different spheres but not necessarily female-dominant overall). If matriarchy is not the norm, there's no narrative reason to jump to it as an assumption (not without reference to numerous generations of female leaders). If it IS the norm, there's no reason to remark upon it.

Ultimately, I will say for clarity, my criticism is not that the society is matriarchal; it is that the way this is presented is using the characters to tell, rather than show. It warps the fourth wall and impacts my suspension of disbelief.

I could see that. Still, even if it's not the only possibility, it's still one possible guess. Think of it from his perspective: horsey mentions a village leader, and a brightly dressed elder runs up to her. Said elder is probably the leader. In a lot of tribal societies, gender determines leadership. In most of those, patriarchy is the norm. As such a female is noteworthy. There IS a logical leap, as you said, but it's not that far. The reason he asked it as a question was to clarify if the assumption was right.

You know, as much as I want to see the next page, have you considered continuing the story in text format until you can get back to drawing?

This comic is still rated 70 on the Belfrey comics index. Here we're hoping it may live again.
