Ooh, I do like this theory.

Excellent work.Gold Stars offered.

However, the lead just could be tucked under her top, or perhaps even had the curse removed by her fellow Kins, and she chose the lesson of the collar one she wears, with the leash removed. Perhaps it's just an ornament now. Perhaps with the same importance as her original 'Kin' necklace.

It's not impossible for the gauntlet's feature to be "keep touching a cursed item with this to subdue a curse", but that's not the leash.
Ah, you are right, I concede :) Thanks.Well spotted.

I think the leash is wrapped around her arm and the gauntlet keeps it from being seen or grabbed.

I see the straps of her backpack, and the tail of her dragon (?) which could be mistaken for the leash.
And in panel 3, I see her upper arm which could be mistaken for the leash.
But I do not see the leash itself.
It is blueish (http://goblinscomic.com/comic/10222006). amd her glove ahs a white rope tied to it, which I initially thought to be the leash leading to herself, so that she symbolically holds her own actions in her own hand. But that rope is not the leash.
Maybe her leash has been transformed into a glove ?
But then, I often do not see the obvious, so I may be mistaken.
You are probably correct. I seen the white lines and assumed it was the leash. Upon looking at the previous comic I realize my mistake.

I think it's wrapped around her arm under the rerebrace, vambrace and gauntlet that she's wearing.

I'm desperately turning the pages of the comic looking for the answers, but it's pretty inconvenient right now on a mobile device, so I hope someone will help me.

Don't the eyes of MinMay look a bit green (Kin-green) and the eyes of Kin purple (MM-purple) now? I can't find the page where it started. Here they still have "normal" eyes. Is it "true seeing" or just a decision of the new colorist?

Thunt is the one making that call; but looking over the bridge fight vs. your link, I think you've discovered a nice little detail.

This is the earliest I could see Minmax's green eyes.

If anything I say offends you I am sorry. It is likely late and I am tired, or I'm upset and I am not thinking straight, and though I sincerely wish I could, I can't express myself in such a way that helps you be less of a crybaby.

I could have sworn I saw green eyes on the Dragon's Maw bridge, but now I'm not so sure on second viewing and he definitely has "normal" eyes while holding the gate open.

Davis, you're at least two pages late.

Eye colour only came in at the bridge fight, before then they all had plain black/white pupils.

So I am. I imagine someone looking at the HD patreon images could best find the first switch.

As far as the initial question goes, I'd say it must be intentional. I think I remember from a live stream Thunt showing a character profile sheet or two that had eye colors on them, and those matched the character's IME.

Thunt was just asked about the eyes in the livestream. He said their eyes have always been those colors. The detail of colored irises just didn't get added until recently.

Also from the live Twitch feed:

Someone asked, here's the info: Kin's dragon name is Parchment, it's a "he", made of paper. And it is a dragon, thus CAN breath fire....

Panels 5 and 6 make no sense. None at all.

I do not see what the issue is with panels 5 and 6. Kin knew what door Minmax went through but when she tried to follow, the dungeon sent her to a different location. She was sent to a hallway that leads to a giant spiral staircase.

Aye. Minmax chose a door (but never went through it) and Kin worked out that he'd chosen it and tried to follow. The goblins picked a different one and led him off in a different direction. They're on different paths.

Someone else explained it to me. Apparently she left the first hall and never stopped leaning on the wall so her location didn't make sense to me at the time.
