when is your next update?
WOW
your comic is awesome. I know i say this about every comic i read on this site, but i'm a huge history buff and i love WW2 story's (even if they are very depressing)
I love your style, and this story! :3
I'm excited to see where it goes.
Chugga chugga ..chuu chuuuu!!!
XD I love the train. Please keep up the good work! Don't let school/fatigue/whatever get you down!
Ah, another responsa comment....to LongLiveRA... sorry, but plenty knew about the death camps. Not all, you are correct there, but plenty. Really. People knew. It's a tough truth to swallow. Oh, people didn't know the details, but when the ghettos were suddenly emptied, and soldiers do talk, and all the propganda floating around...well, it doesn't take a genius to figure it out.
You are right, of course, that Jews were not the only victims of the war. But they were the only ones actively pursued unto death. If the Reich came across any other 'undesirable', such as a homosexual or mental retardent, they'd be done away with; but they were not actively and meticulously sought out from country to country. There was no Final Solution for gays. I am not trying to belittle anyone's suffering during the war, but for the sake of the historical record, I felt the need to straighten some things out.
But I do commend you on your efforts to de-villify Germany. It's amazng how far they've come since that dark time, and how careful they are with human rights now. I've met plenty of Germans, and they are very sweet. :-) I don't know why anyone would want to de-vilify Nazis, though.

To the author-sama....excellent work!! -luvs-
Just saying to Cat and yaoiperv....you're right that a lot of what was happening wasn't publicized, but that doesnt mean people didn't know what was going on. In countrysides, small villages, for example, you would find people ignorant of atrocities committed. But certainly in Germany, it would've been difficult not to know what was going on. Degredation of Jews, and other 'undesirables' was made quite public. For instance, ghettos were common, and were walled off sections of entire cities -- not something that will go unnoticed. The only thing that was hush hush was some of the liquidations of the ghettos, which could take place in a flash in the dead of night. And also....people knew what was going on way before the Soviets started liberating the east. Not everyone, of course, but people knew. Even people in America.
BTW, I am also a WWII buff....we history nerds do tend to congregate here, eh? :-)
mistake
Just a little change. If you want it to be realistic to the extreme, then turn the nazi symbol the right way. You've posted the hinduist symbol... But great story, really deep
This is an insult to history, art, you name it.
Dear artist - I can see the purpose of romanticizing the 3rd Reich (you're not the first and by far not the last) and making the main character look like some emosexual (or "yaoi" or whatever you name it), but why making the whole comic so goddamn unauthentic to a degree of mockery?
You're supposedly writing about a dark age in the 20th century, but I fail to see the seriousness this issue has and boy do I find it serious! I lost half my family to that goddamn war, together with another 50 million people or more and you're making some comic to entertain otaku nerds with it?
Heck, I don't find it offending because of it presents Nazis in a seemingly "good" light. I don't find it offending because I'm half Jewish. I find it offending because it's written by a tit who missed far too many history classes and prolly been "punishing the bishop" to some gay-skinhead porn instead, because if you were attending a single history lesson, you would know an SS officer would not be scared to the sight of a torn off head. I would know. My grandmother's cousin, her daughter just had a baby when the Panzers rolled in town. Two Nazi soldiers took her baby, one pulled it by the body, the other on the head, till it torn clean off!!!
"atempt at drawing a train?" I think that first pannel was a pretty awesome success.

Eh, didn't finish it yet, s'alright so far. Swastika is backwards. Its lame if you did it on purpose not to offend anyone. If you're going to do a historical comic, keep it correct or else chose another period.
I like your comic but I'd like to point out that your swastika's are the wrong way if they are being used for the nazi party. you have them the way they started out before Germany changed it for their own needs

example of nazi flag:http://www.school-portal.co.uk/GroupDownloadFile.asp?GroupId=91899&Resourc eId=451111

just a heads up. keep on with the great comic though^^
I think it's a good chuchu. =0
It does go chu chu right? =0
And what a sexy attempt for a locamotive it is~
yay france!
I like the train, the wilderness looks good too
Hnn...
So I actually attempted to draw a train...
Der Verrater's Nose
Actually... his nose is based off "Snape" from Harry Potter, because I'm a loser and crooked noses are cool, haha.
In reply to Rizu
Wilhelm is blonde/blue eyed and Der Verrater has black hair and dark brown/black eyes, but as I generally only do black/white and red, there's not really anything to worry about. ^^; They aren't in uniform on this page, just overcoats, so they'd either be grey or a light brown.
I forgot to ask--what color are hair and eyes on this page? And uniforms? And anything else I should adhere to (like Helene's clothes, or the backgrounds)?

I'm glad to see more updates! :D
>>
I have dark hair, and a nose like that but Im not jewish. yes, there are alot of stereo types back then like that, but it isn;t always true. D=
Its actually from my itilian side. So he could be something else... =K
He does have the Jewish nose....I just need to see him colored because we usually have dark hair and brown eyes....actually he does have dark hair....I dunno...
