Now I found a second longer comic in here that fascinated me enough to give it a full read.

I did read. For the art; it works very well and the use of black & white is effective, maybe some improvements of the moving figures is possible.

For the story: I first thought it was moving a bit slow in the beginning, but it built up steadily. The referenced to Sherlock Holmes, Jekyll & Hyde and Jack the Ripper are obvious and fun to the reader. I wonder if Fiona is a reference to Fantomas daughter as well, who did crossdressing in the original books as well, I just don't recall her name just now. Of course I also thought about John Steed and Emma Peel first, although Fionas remarks in the beginning are a bit more on the tasteless side then Emma would have done. All in All, it belongs to te top of comics I have found in here. If I had some time, I would add something in my fan-art thread in here.

Started slow? Hmm. It starts with a prison break, followed by a series of grisly murders. I think that's a pretty good start for a murder/mystery/adventure, if I do say so myself. And I do. LOL!

Not sure who Fantomas daughter is. Fiona is influenced by everyone from Emma Peel, to Agent 99 (Fiona's agent number is 99. Smythe is Agent 86, Maxwell Smarts number from Get Smart) in "Get Smart", to 19th century crossdressing female author George Sand, and even Catherine Zeta-Jones. I figured what else would shock like Emma Peel's 60's leather catsuits in 19th century england other then a woman dressed in men's clothes.

As for Fiona's initial "tastelessness"? I think that some folks took Fiona's love of pushing people's buttons in 19th century victorian england by saying and doing the inappropriate in a puritanical male dominated society the wrong way at first.

Fan art thread? Don't let me stop you. LOL! Smile

Glad you liked it. It's going to be published. Look for it sometime in October from First Run Publishing.

So much for the fan-art:

http://www.thewebcomiclist.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=149189#149189

I allowed myself to mix up the Continentals with a character of my own webcomic. But as she used to time-travelling and is qute fond of victorian style, it is rather possible that the characters would have meet.

Ariane is a proto-goth, just like Theda Bara, Norma Talmdage or Juliette Greco have been in real life, or Irma Vep (1916), Morticia Addams (1942), etc. as fictional characters. Maybe it is an idea to let them meet in the comic oneday.

There's a new update at The Continentals. Here's the teaser:

"A MURDER OF CROWS!!!"

A gathering of crows is called "a murder". In the parlors and drawing rooms of high society, a gathering of very rich and very opinionated sycophants is even more deadly.

"A BODICE OF EVIDENCE!!!"

A voice in opposition is always the first casualty of war. Especially the war between the sexes. And as Fiona points out, the balance may be in the bodice.

Awesome style. I love the costumes and your inking looks good Very Happy.
If I have some time today I'll read trough the whole thing, but it definitely made a good first impression. It has a lot of atmosphere.
