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.

"I know" will never be less than the perfect line, will it?
The phrase should really be: “Get out, Keres, the Anthesteria is over!” I changed it to ‘ghosts’ so it would be easier to understand. According to Festivals of the Athenians by Herbert William Parke, this was maybe said at the end of the Anthesteria to make sure that all the spirits really left and returned to the Underworld. Though some mean that it should be Kares, not Keres, and that it refers to the Carian slaves that are now sent out to work again when the festival is over.
@AzrielEver: Something like that. ^^
I love you, you annoying pest
@Avalon: Thank you! <3 I wanted Hades to have at least a few friendly relationships with people in his family, besides Persephone.
:D
So cute!!! I'm loving these updates so much! I love how they're friends, too. The relationships between Hades, Hestia, Hermes, and Persephone make me so happy! ♥
@Maryam: Yeah, I think Hades needed to be a bit teased and pressured to better understand his feelings for Persephone.
Hermes first hugged Hades in Nekyia, page 67. ^^

I think that one reason why Hades eventually warmed up to Hermes is that, even if Hermes surely sees Hades as quite an eccentric, he has never made fun of him. And unlike most of the other gods, Hermes doesn’t see the dead as frightening/uninteresting, or that it is somehow below him to have connections to the Underworld.

Hermes is definitely living up to his trickster nature! I'm glad though, it's fun to see Hades getting teased a bit :p It lets him reflect on how significant Persephone is to him, even if it hurts for now
@Llinwey: Hermes definitely has more experience about these things. ^^
Aww, poor Hades has no idea how to handle this situation... ^^
Hermes is lovely with this advice though :D
Hermes doesn't totally suck at love advice.
also there is a cultural propriety thing. relationships outside of marriage carry a degree of stigma (even for gods, as seen with Athena's situation in the early stories), particularly amoung those gods that interact with humans often and thus have absorbed human cultural norms, and marriages are something that ally and unify the two families, so having the permission of the respective parents/family heads is an important deal.
@someone_else: He sure is. ^^
@Llinwey: Don't worry, I won't abandon a comic when I've come this far with it. If I suddenly become silent here, it is a good idea to check my tumblr because I usually update my situation there. ^^

Thank you! <3 I'm so happy to finally be over that damn writer's block. When I can't work on my comics I feel like I have no purpose and almost becomes depressed. It was nice to see my friend, though.
@marcorossi: Persephone is an adult, but she's not independent. She lives in her mother's house, so she sort of belongs to her mother.
Concur with the "yay a new page!" sentiment. But, a question: why does Hades worry for Persephone's parents opinion? Do the gods, in this story, have an idea of Persephone not being an adult? Is the idea that, after a lot of time, Persephone will also become an adult, and perhaps old?
Hermes is also cute.
OMG ... A PAGE!!!! <3

At one point I was horrified, that you might just won't continue, but I remembered you're usually more active on tumblr, and you had posts there about having a hard time with the page, so I kind of calmed down, and continued to wait. Still checked every day though ^^

I must say it turned out awesome, Hades has just the way of thinking I imagined him to have.

Btw, hope you had a good time with your friend! ^^
@Sidhekin: I understand what you mean. A writer's block is a relatively small problem compared to other things. And I think I'm over it now. :)
