And here we go! Starting off with a bang! Or a slash, rather. :( This opening page was the main reason for my M rating from the get-go, but one can't sugarcoat things about Nazis, can one? Still, I hope it is clear that poor Fotis is out of THAT woods, as he's obviously being tended to. Next week we get a more… tame page. But we've begun, and I hope you stick around to see what's going on! Thoughts and comments all more that welcome, as you very well know :)

Agree that the site design is cool! Your drawing skills are impressive. Also, yayyy torture! That sure looks painful :3 *grins with malice* (sorry...I'm friggin' evil T.T...I'll try not to slip into my evil-ness too much.)

Um... you still forgot to fix the anti-alias on the top panel XD

Lance Danger: All thanks to JNP's work!

Apparently, after the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich, while torturing a guy to find the assassins the Nazis showed him his mothers severed head which they had placed in a fish tank.
Yeah, not very nice people.

And I forgot to add, as a history minor WWII is one of my fave times in modern history, so I'll be watching this one. ^^

Oooo, this looks painful! Love the coloring on this page and his expression in the last panel.
at 1:27AM, June 22, 2010
I like the way you've colored this, T. :) It makes it pretty vibrant. Can't wait to read more.

DAJB: That is true, unfortunately. However, Nazis did come up with several inventive ways of torture, and incorporated others from the past- what you see here was just the most widely used interrogation method for quick results in basements and commandeered houses in Occupied Athens. If the victim didn't break down, they gave him/her some time to regain strength, and went on to more [i]imaginative[/i] ways of persuasion, as you put it. :( It's just as well that apparently Fotis was spared that- we'll find out if he broke down on Monday XD
The most shocking aspect that fired up civilian resistance after the first month or two of occupation, is reported to have been how Nazis had no trouble torturing and murdering kids (and women/ mothers) without discrimination if it suit their purposes or even just for fun. It is not considered honourable in the Hellenic code of fighting.
It generally is vastly unwise to abuse children before the eyes of Greeks especially if one is an invader- instead of breaking them into submission, it will convince them to fight to the death and take the enemy with them if that's where the fight leads ;)

Not just the Nazis, I'm afraid. From the Inquisition, through recent events in the Balkans to the various regimes in South America, it seems the capacity of some people to dream up the most [i]imaginative[/i] forms of torture far exceeds anything we poor fiction writers can come up with. As excruciatingly painful as that looks!
But chin up, Fotis. At least in fiction the perpetrators usually get their come-uppance!

dragonrider: Yes! Happy to see it shows the storm is gathering.
And yes, it is a dream now. More info next week, and less violence.

The whip while watching a storm gather over the Acropolis, of course from the look in the bottom panel he did not long see the Acropolis. I assume this is a dream or flashback since he has bandages on. Waiting for more.

Ooooooh a new story :D!!!!

Hero: happy to see you on board!
Darth Mongoose: Pretty much, yeah :( This is the prologue, though. I am happy you find it powerful, I wanted it to be!
Used books:Thank you! I hope you click around at some point, and brave the barbed wire ;)

Yikes! We're really starting off in the thick of it! Very powerful page.
at 10:07PM, June 20, 2010
Ouch. That is quite a way to start and set the mood and the setting. -_-
Cool site design too. The barbed wire makes it feel all the more uncomfortable around here. ^_^;
