Strangers and Friends

by Theorah
The small English town of Wootton Bassett begins to be haunted by a series of mysterious and horrific murders! Hemu, a new-comer to the town, becomes an obvious and easy target to the local community- he does have his fair share of secrets! But what secrets are the other locals hiding?
A comic about the peculiar prejudices and customs of small communities, with a hint of social commentary on modern Britain, and a sinister splash of horror ;)

Hanuman did alot of cool stuff...perhaps most famous, and depicted here...He was asked to get an antidote plant upon a mountain for Ramas brother who was poisened....but Hanuman wasnt sure which plant was needed, so he used his giant size and strength to carry the whole mountain back to Rama!

I realize there's more to it than this, but I'm kind of amused by the idea that Rama thought "my wife was kidnapped?! Time to enlist the help of some random bear."

Also .. you have a small typo (then -> than) :<

@AmiC Eee omg Journey to the West!! I always wondered if Son Goku was inspired by Hanuman, cos they have very similar magical powers and are both monkeys. I looked it up and apparently some scholars say they might be linked, but no one knows for sure. It would be fun to draw a version of journey to the west!!

Again, the Ramayana is a huge epic story....this page is literally short hand for a whole bunch of stuff that happens...go read it sometime :3

The body language is supposed to be demonstrative and therefore OTT...but I like the idea that he's just shouting at that vanara whise pretty much right next to him lol

Theres a very looooong story behind Ravana capturing Sita so he can get to Rama, but I can't draw that much, so this'll get across the idea lol

@sentiashinou: lol yeah!! It would probably be easier if I read comics right from the start as they're updating, but I'm normally following comics that've been going for AGES, I never seem to catch up on anything XD
And thank you! The Ramayana is one of my fave stories/legends, so I'm having a lot of fun drawing parts of it~

Yeah, it's intimidating to get back into SJ comics, isn't it? I started catching up on here MONTHS ago and I STILL feel way behind.

Anyway, your rendition of these two is adorable!!

The last chapter begins with a segment from the Ramayana, a story spanning back 1000s of years that influenced Hinduism forever- isnt it amazing what stories can do? o_o
I was super excited to draw this, cos the Ramayana is an AWESOME story! And I highly recommend you look it up for yourself, its just a great fantasy :3

I hear Dreamworks are making their own version of the Ramayana, unfortunately it sounds like its gonna be loosely based rather then a proper adapation...which is such a shame! This story would make such a cool animation!!
