More graphic novel pictures

Please note, Diana says this is NOT the final version!
That's a "rough" page, which will have slight tweaks, specifically with regard to Jamie's nose (that's my overall remark throughout while doing the commentary for the artist's corrections--"More nose!"
Also, she says the man in the middle panels is someone we've never seen before.
You can see Diana's comments on Compuserve here.
***IMPORTANT NOTE*** Please don't post the picture all over the Internet! For one thing, Diana does not own the copyright to this picture; that belongs to the artist, Hoang Nguyen. For another, it's not the final version, and things may well change a bit before it's published. If you want to post a link to the picture, that's fine, but please don't copy and paste it onto your own site. Thanks.
I just love the first panel, with the standing stones against the backdrop of the mountains. Gorgeous, and a little eerie.
It's pretty clear that this is taking place at Craigh na Dun, after the witch-trial. (But if that's the case, why is Claire wearing shoes in the last panel? Didn't she lose them in Cranesmuir?)
I think the difference in their heights is not quite right in the first panel. Either Claire is too tall, or Jamie is not tall enough.
Wonderful to get another peek at the GN, even if this is not the final version!
