Webcomic Profile: Hephaestus


(a retelling of Greek mythology, with more than likely deviation from the original myths)

While other gods on Mt. Olympus are known to be beautiful and laid back, Hephaestus is more humble in appearance and works his hands to the bone. However, that is not to say that the god of crafting and fire doesn't have any interesting tales about himself...

Yes, I am calling Kratos and Bia as Might and Force. You can probably guess which one is Kratos and who his design is a tip of the hat off to.

@WarriorNun (Chapter 8, Page 1): I remember reading that version in grade school. Boy was I in for a surprise when I grew up.

I hear in one version, it was Aphrodite that chose Hephaestus herself.

Hyper Shadow (Five Years of Hephaestus): perhaps it's just the occasion. Or perhaps there is a multiverse and she's one of 52 alternate Aprhrodites and at least one of them is nicer (more likely the former though)

What Aphrodite being nice to her husband? What kind of strange parallel Universe is this? Lol.

Five years ago, I uploaded the first page of Hephaestus the webcomic on Deviantart, initially just to practice drawing and to put all the cool stuff that I learned in my Cultural Foundations class at NYU into practice. I eventually got into making classical poetry to add to the narrative and then things have spun off from there. Over the last five years, things have changed a lot for me, and it was seemingly a running joke that I wasn't able to ever rememebr the anniversaries of this series.

It's thanks to all you cool readers out there that I was able to contiue on this comic series. Hopefully, I can entertain you all with more stories and I hope I can grow as an artist thanks to all of your support.

@Whip the Rabbit (Chapter 8, Cover): It's not going to happen to him literally, but it is still a nice cover...
@traca (Chapter 8, Cover): I'd let you guys interpret it for me...

Maybe the bourbon was Dionysus saying he didn't like the idea of you doing this to Hephestus. XD
Or he liked the idea. You can never tell.

Prometheus Bound
Fun fact is that this was one of the many ideas I initially had for Chapter 7. Another fun fact is that one of the reasons why it took so long to make Chapter 8 was because I spilt bourbon on the original draft of the layouts like a dumb butt.

@Whip the Rabbit (Chapter 7, Last Page): we'll get to that eventually...
@WarriorNun (Chapter 7, Last Page): :<
@WarriorNun (Mother's Day 2015): You do it for him, and you do it again,
@Novanto (Chapter 8, Teaser): it was just a teaser idea at the time. This is the real cover
@angelfox (Mother's Day 2015): You do it for her (that is to say), you do it for him.
