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...

Fun Fact: Hecate is, along with being a Goddess of the Underworld and witchcraft, a Goddess of the Crossroads and goes by another name: Trivia for the Romans. This design is a little nod to both that and the Riddler. :D

I will aim to be updating a lot these next few days to rap up this chapter as mid-May I will be going to my sister's graduation and on a trip.

@WarriorNun (Chapter 7, Page 19): More like a Quartet...
@Novanto (Chapter 7, Page 19): You'd think so, but there are reasons why that's not so. You may see in the not too distant future...

@Whip the Rabbit (Chapter 7, Page 18): That's actually Demeter in "Winter" form. :P It'd be hard to tell since Zeus was told by Gaia his biggest threat was a son, and so the sexist prophecy of Mother Eath may not give Kore strength...
@WarriorNun (Chapter 7, Page 18): I assume they're really, REALLY cold.
@BurstThrough (Chapter 7, Page 18): That is a safe bet. Even though Leto is her friend Hera did make Leto's life terrible trying to birth Apollo and Artemis.

When in doubt of someone's parenthood you can put your money on Zeus and be right 75% of the time....
But well maybe it was touchy cause it was one of the first and they didn't know how Hera would take a cheating birth until she found the next one and started making the mother's life hell.

Honestly, this weekend I was giving my cousin and her friend a tour of New York City and I caught a cold the Monday I was supposed to be free to draw this comic. Sorry folks. I will try to resume when I feel better.

Here's something though for you who play Tomodachi Life. You too can have your own Hephie!

I wonder how the rest of the gods are holding up?
