Ah, Solon, Solon, Solon. I'd wanted to do something with
him ever since I realised that he was around during the
time period I chose for this comic. I even considered
giving him a recurring role in this chapter, but
unfortunately the only scene I ever came up with for him
was... well, the one you see above.
I'm probably being a little unfair to Solon with this
comic... He was enormously progressive and fair-minded
for his time, and would go on to basically run Athens
after the previous government made a horrendous mess of
things. And hey, even within this comic, he's almost
certainly the most courageous male character we've seen
so far. At least, I think that's courage...
Hey everyone, don't forget about the auction! It starts
next week, and you - yes, you - will have the chance to
bid on some original Amazoness!
well as a whole load of artwork that is probably, on
balance, even more desirable than that
can you imagine? It's all for charity, too, so you can
feel good about yourself as you accrue worldly goods.
