Theia Mania

Theia Mania

by agnosis
My own take on Greek mythology. Join Hermes, Hades, Persephone, Athena and the others as they try to deal with themselves, their complicated family and those strange humans.

NEKYIA: Inspired by “Menippus, A Necromantic Experiment” by Lucian. It introduces Hades, Hermes and the Underworld.

DADDY'S GIRL: The story about Athena’s “childhood” and her struggle to understand herself, her family and the world around her.

HERO BONES: A short story about Hermes, inspired by what the ancient Greeks thought about fossils and big bones found in the earth.

DESTROYER OF LIGHT: A story about abortion and motherhood from Persephone’s point of view, inspired by some myths from the Orphic tradition.

Some of the comics have some mature content, but nothing too explicit.

@agnosis: And I thought I had a lot of cousins (22). 😁
But Okeanides must be as numerous as sand at the sea (don’t know if that saying translates).

@Johanna: To be honest, I'm not really sure what distinguishes the language of the dead from the language of the living. Maybe Hades just changes his voice to sound dead when he talks to them, to make them feel more safe and comfortable around him. I imagine that Persephone can understand them.
This scene makes me wonder, can Persephone understand the language of the dead, or does she just get the gist of the situation?
@Rose: No problem. They had two festivals called Anakalypteria (Unveiling of the Bride) and Theogamia (Divine Marriage). My source for this is "Ancient Greek Cults: A Guide" by Jennifer Larson, if you want to read more about Persephone in Sicily.
@agnosis: Thank you for the information! Even if it's just the names, could I get some of them if it's not a bother please?
@Rose: She seems to have been worshiped quite independently of her mother among the Greek colonists in Sicily. They had a festival named Koreia (Festival of the maiden) and other festivals that seem to have focused on her marriage to Hades. Unfortunately, we mostly just have the names of the festivals and not much information about them.
I've been wondering for a while... did Persephone had any festivals or celebrations dedicated just to herself? I mean I know many festival had more than one god as the central figure with few exceptions, but I got curious since most of the information I've got is that she was always worshipped next to her mother.

@someone_else: I will. But I'm afraid that the editing of Anthesteria will take some time, and then I'm not quite sure how I should write the next part. If you want to see various drawings or how the editing is going, you can always check my Tumblr blog (a-gnosis.tumblr.com). I really appreciate your patience and support. <3

@someone_else: No, it's supposed to be the Okeanides (some of them, because I think there were like 3000 Okeanides in total). They are daughters of the Titans Tethys and Okeanos, which actually makes them cousins to Demeter.
@agnosis: 😢 I will miss this. Take your time, but please come back – with more Persephone, I love her so much 🥰 (in your depiction, that is).
Yours, eagerly awaiting your return,
S.E.
Are those other girls relatives? I found Ianthe as an Okeanide, but maybe you had something else in mind?

@Thog: Yes, the new comic will be posted here (as well as on my tumblr and DeviantArt), but it's going to take some time before I can start drawing on it. Like, probably some time next year. In the meantime I'll post some drawings and stuff on my tumblr blog (a-gnosis.tumblr.com), if you're interested. ^^
New Comic?
I really like your comic, I’m in the middle of re-reading it as we speak. Will the new comic continuing this story be posted in this website, or will you at least let us know where we can find it here?

@gb2098: Not as much, I imagine. After all, the dead don't pray or sacrifice to you.

@Okotari: Yes, I also don't think it really was his intention to spy. ^^
@agnosis: True, but it could be argued that its probably not his *intention* to spy on her... IT was probably just like "im gonna talk to her, im gonna talk to her... nope, helmet it is."
