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.

@LKWayvern: You are right. I have purposefully given Persephone (and my version of Hades) autistic traits. I too am autistic (my diagnosis is Asperger's syndrome), so some of these traits I have taken from myself, but none of them are exactly like me. Like Persephone, I'm quite disorganized and have special interests (drawing in my case), but my sexuality is closer to Hades' demisexuality. I'm really glad you think that Persephone is a realistic portrait of an autistic person. :)
@LKWayvern: Sounds like a wise decision. ^^
@LKWayvern: Yay! Thank you!
@LKWayvern: I don't have anything planned right now, but who knows? ^^
PUNCH HIM
I like their friendship a lot.

I'd be very interested in seeing a story about Hestia, if you ever plan for one. ^^
I LOVE your Artemis!
I like kids just fine, but I know if I try to take care of them 24/7, I won't be able to devote my entire attention to them and I won't be able to constantly remain calm and patient, so I'd rather leave it to people who can devote the energy kids need to them, and leave myself able to pursue what I'd like.
...Reading your interpretation of Persephone, a few things I noticed here and there make me think autism, with plants as a special interest. The being drained by loud environments, being quiet and mistaken for shy, seen as eccentric or creepy or freakish somehow, generally being disorganized and executive dysfunction causing delay in chores, being treated as a child or more delicate than you really are, and the like...
I dunno if you did it on purpose at all? Maybe I'm just seeing those things because I'm looking for them. But if you did purposefully write Persephone as autistic, I wanted to tell you that you did an extremely good job in doing so. I'm austistic and the majority of autistic people I see in the media, the type that seems most popular, is just... not like me at all. I don't expect them to be exactly like me because it's a spectrum, but they all seem to be 'insufferable genius who's brilliant at math with quirky qualities'. And then there's me, 'very fidgety, very disorganized, executive dysfunction, bad at math but great with stories, prefers writing to speaking but told I'm good with speaking, hard to read'
Some details you gave Persephone match up with my experience in a way that surprised and pleased me, and that made me happy.
Also, though I'm not really interested in sexual acts of any kind, I am finding her relationship with it and thoughts on it interesting. I don't really see romantic or sexual relationships that appear mature with autistic characters often, if ever.

Welp, if you read this far, thanks for listening to me rambling. I think since I've read this much, it's safe to say you've secured another reader. ^^

@Llinwey: Thank you! <3 Glad you liked the page.

I think it might have been a bad decision to make Megaira a black siluett in that panel. I sometimes ink characters like that when they stand in the foreground, but in this case I probably shouldn't have. It does look a bit weird.
@agnosis: I'm so glad you're feeling better!
Your health should always come first ;)

And personally I love the page, Hades is soo cute falling in love like that ^^
That shadow in the bottom-middle panel feels a bit off, although I couldn't point out why... maybe it's just me.

But you really shouldn't worry about it if it doesn't feel good now, I'm sure you'll make it even better in time ;)
Finally I managed to finish this page (I caught a cold last week and it took most of my energy away). To be honest I don’t think it turned out so very well, but right now I just want to get on with the story.
omg i love hera's face when demeter was threatening them!!
@someone_else: We'll get back to her soon. ^^
They’re so cute! And I want to see more of Kore!
@Llinwey: I haven't decided anything yet, but, yes, there is a chance. ^^
@agnosis: is there a chance they will appear in a later comic? I would be curious how Melito would react to see her god got married or something like that ^^
