Think of the Devil To-day

Happy Christmas (Eve), everyone. My present to you on the day before the supposed day of Christ's birth is a pair of devils--my new comic is finally online:

Here's the description I wrote for DriveThru Comics:

Some who rebel against their monarchs are put to death, some are exiled, some are forgotten, while some are paradoxically rewarded. It's a confusing world, whether you're a West African princess like Dekpa or the daughter of a famous traitor to the English crown like Deborah. The two young women are soon to learn there's not much they can depend on apart from themselves and so a cutthroat quest for wealth and glory begins.

I first committed to this comic in January so you're seeing a culmination of a year of research and planning. The first eight pages available on the site were completed in June but I'd like to take a moment to thank Professor Peter Herman from San Diego State University for providing me with further info on John Milton in the autumn and for reading the first eight pages and making sure I didn't say something completely stupid about the author of Paradise Lost.

So enjoy.
