agnosis
I'm a Swedish comics creator who have drawn comics and written stories since I was a child. My main interest besides comics is greek mythology, which inspires many of my own comics. I've also done historical as well as realistic and autobiographical comics. I publish my own fanzine, Agnosis. Some of my inspiration comes from Carla Speed McNeil (Finder), Eric Shanower (Age of Bronze), Tinet Elmgren (Driftwood) and Sussie Bech (Nofret).

Other interests are religion/mythology, history, literature, philosophy and drinking tea. I listen mostly to synth and chiptunes and am very fond of old 8-bit video games.

@Johanna: To be honest, I'm not really sure what distinguishes the language of the dead from the language of the living. Maybe Hades just changes his voice to sound dead when he talks to them, to make them feel more safe and comfortable around him. I imagine that Persephone can understand them.
@Rose: No problem. They had two festivals called Anakalypteria (Unveiling of the Bride) and Theogamia (Divine Marriage). My source for this is "Ancient Greek Cults: A Guide" by Jennifer Larson, if you want to read more about Persephone in Sicily.
@Rose: She seems to have been worshiped quite independently of her mother among the Greek colonists in Sicily. They had a festival named Koreia (Festival of the maiden) and other festivals that seem to have focused on her marriage to Hades. Unfortunately, we mostly just have the names of the festivals and not much information about them.
@someone_else: I will. But I'm afraid that the editing of Anthesteria will take some time, and then I'm not quite sure how I should write the next part. If you want to see various drawings or how the editing is going, you can always check my Tumblr blog (a-gnosis.tumblr.com). I really appreciate your patience and support. <3
@someone_else: No, it's supposed to be the Okeanides (some of them, because I think there were like 3000 Okeanides in total). They are daughters of the Titans Tethys and Okeanos, which actually makes them cousins to Demeter.
@Thog: Yes, the new comic will be posted here (as well as on my tumblr and DeviantArt), but it's going to take some time before I can start drawing on it. Like, probably some time next year. In the meantime I'll post some drawings and stuff on my tumblr blog (a-gnosis.tumblr.com), if you're interested. ^^
@Guest: Thank you! Feels like I've been struggling the whole time with this comic, but I managed to finish it after all. ^^
@gb2098: Not as much, I imagine. After all, the dead don't pray or sacrifice to you.
@rabbitsama42: Thank you for reading! I'm so happy you like my comics. <3
@AzrielEver: Yes, indeed.
@Okotari: Yes, I also don't think it really was his intention to spy. ^^
And this is the end of Anthesteria. The rest of Hades and Persephone’s story will hopefully be told in my next comic, with the working title "Queen of the Dead". But it will take some time before I can start drawing on it, since I first have some editing to do on Anthesteria.

Thank you to all my wonderful readers for your support. It really means a lot to me. <3
@Llinwey: Ironically, she's probably immune to the black fire herself. I think.
@Guest: Yes, unless Persephone calls it forth again...
@JennyB: Thank you! :)
@MHVINCO: Oh, in the book I've read the strix was described as a female ghost who attacked women and children. That's scary enough, but your description was scarier.
@MHVINCO: Yes, the most common and accepted theory is that the cult of Aphrodite was borrowed or influenced by the cultures of the Near East. Though there is a minority that argues that her roots were Indo-European and that she either originated from a Vedic dawn goddess or a Bronze Age Cypriot goddess. Anyway, in my comic every culture has their own gods, so I'm not sure exactly what Aphrodite's relationship to Inanna is. But they probably have some kind of connection.
@Nikki: I definitely approve of avoiding your family, but spying on people is a bit more morally dubious.
@HTE: Maybe... Or maybe not.
What Hades uses his helmet of invisibility for in times of peace: avoiding his family and spying on his crush.
