You maybe remember that the seasons have always existed in my Greek mythology world.

Kore reminds me of a close friend who is at least a quarter Greek (her grandfather was born near Olympus, in fact), mainly because of they both don't like most people too much. Oh, and there's the use of sarcasm as a coping mechanism.

@redandblack64:
Heh! Most interpretations of Kore/Persephone that I've seen have been the sweet, innocent and extroverted type, so I thought it would be fun to make my version of her as a bit cynical and introverted. Now I don't mean that there is anything wrong with a sweet and extroverted Persephone, but I've always had a weakness for "darker" interpretations of her.

It's 9am here in the US and I'm eating my breakfast at my desk at work... holy cow this sequence of pages made me jump! Hahaha!

Are the Theia Mania comics ever going to be available in book form? I would love to purchase some of your work in English. One of my friends has a degree in Classics and she would love all of this.

@Kate:
I was hoping that it would have that effect on people. :)

I really want to print these comics in English some day. The problem is that I don't know how to do it. I have only self-published simple paper zines before, and of course I'd like to print the Theia Mania comics as real books. I would need a lot of help from people who are more experienced than I am. But I really hope that I will be able to do it. Thank you very much for your interest in the comic. <3

@agnosis: Hm, if you're still considering someday printing these, there's one company I know of that I've looked into that's reasonably inexpensive (I mean, you can end up pricing it pretty much at what issues/volumes might cost in the mainstream US comics market e.g. $3-$4 for a magazine issue or whatnot) and does "print on demand" i.e. you only need to order as many or as few copies as you like, even if it's literally just one copy. They also had this thing at the time where your back page could be an advertisement for them and they'd knock a little off the per-issue or per-volume price.

If they're still around they're called "Kablam"? Might be worth looking into. Not sure who else does POD services for comics, I know there's a whole bunch (of varying prices), such as Lulu, who do it for prose or partly illustrated prose but it's different when it's entirely images so there's probably fewer willing to do it.

It's possible Amazon also does such a service (I know they do for regular prose?) but I'm leary of suggesting Amazon because the company in general is so skeezy and trying to corner every possible market >_> including really underhanded tactics. And when it comes to books, any one company that corners the market will be able to exert a level of control that is probably unhealthy for creators (Amazon "negotiated" for a lower royalty on ebooks for Kindle in a very crooked way for instance, even with the mainstream publishers). So, I'm always a little reluctant when it comes to Amazon >_>

Kablam was a pretty popular service for comic POD services a few years back though, and they were independent last I checked, so I'd probably recommend that one.

You may want a native speaker to proofread the dialogue in final print version though; your English is quite excellent as a rule but once in a while the grammar gets a little odd, usually with verb conjugations (again, not often, but occasionally), which should probably be fixed for the print version if there is one.

You could also research independent printers in general, because a lot of them might be willing to do it as well (just make sure that violence and nudity won't weird them out I guess). If you choose to go with a service that isn't POD and pay-at-printing, then you could always attempt a Kickstarter to fund it; that company allows you to "crowd-fund" through accepting donations and if you meet or beat the stated fundraising goal, you'll get...well, whatever was pledged. That's a bit more effort though, as you need to draw up a proposal for the campaign (meaning you need to figure out how much you want to ask for, and make some sort of page with images and/or a video explaining it to convince people to contribute), you need to promote the campaign to try and get maximum eyeballs on it to ensure more success, and if it gets funded (meaning, meets or beats its goal), usually backers are assured some sort of reward (in the case of books and comics, it's usually a copy of the book for pledging a certain amount, for instance, though smaller or larger pledge amounts might get things like bookmarks, T-shirts, stickers, etc., which would also have to be made/designed. You could probably get away with rewards being things like original art - e.g. "a sketch of your favorite god or goddess character" - though or signed copies of the book, since it's a comic and your art is really cool and one of the selling points to begin with)

I hope this helps :)
