I do think there is a clear message here that in war there is no winner. Sarpedon doesn’t win. Tlepolemos doesn’t win. Each time two people face off it only leads to death on both sides.
I feel like the two Ajaxes are just off in the corner going, “Um? Guys? A little help over here? Maybe? …. Uh…. Anyone?”
And seriously, don’t mess with Odysseus. He will cut you. That being said, I regret how I wrote it and wish I had said: “Soon seven Lycians were slain” or even the ridiculous “Soon Lycians seven were slain.” Oh well.
Um. Yeah. So. I just realized Sarpedon doesn’t have a spear stuck in his leg in the frame where his friends are idiots (how could you miss the giant spear stuck in your friends leg? HOW?) so just imagine it is poking out away from the audience so it’s there you just can’t see it. That totally works yes.
I think Pelagon has a nose? It was supposed to be a tear but look like a nose. DON’T TELL ANYONE SHHHH. No noses allowed.
Ares is so proud.
I CAN’T BELIEVE I GOT THIS READY IN TIME. I’m going to my sister’s this weekend (last weekend for you) so I worked like crazy today to clean two rooms and prepare for two days away AND for when family comes over on Sunday. I didn’t vacuum like I wanted to… but comics are more important. Right? Right.
*raises invisible glass* Here’s to hopefully not getting behind ever again. Cheers!
