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!

I love Apollo and I wish I were better at drawing him consistently. I knew from the beginning he would be difficult and he has not failed me in that respect.

Also, I love love love that Demeter got to show up here and get a cameo ❤

Also, yay for Artemis and Leto.

You can understand why Aeneas became such a cult hero. He has not just one, but FOUR (plus kind of Ares) gods watching over him.

Sarpedon is going to show up again and he’s mildly important. Not very, very important, but more important than, say, that guy on the island whose sailors mutinied. So. I guess pay attention to him? If you feel like it?

Hopefully on Friday I’ll have the next post up! We shall see. I still need to get next week’s stuff done and I’m working all week and have plans all weekend AND also I still haven’t done my taxes *faints* So we’ll see how life goes. In the meantime! Have a lovely day! 😀
