The Ancient Greeks once wrote
of a race of fierce warrior women living in the
territory that is now known as Turkey. They called these
warriors the Amazons. But Ancient Greek historians were
a rather jingoistic bunch on the whole, and a
distressing number of these legends involved big,
strapping Greek men defeating and seducing the Amazons,
sometimes at the same time.
Now, the truth will be told.
For the first time ever,
here is the true story of the Amazons. Travel back to
the year 595 BC, to the banks of the River Thermodon,
where the Amazons have built their stronghold, the city
of Themiskyra. And meet Ess, the Amazon princess who, in
an era of large-scale war and even larger-scale women,
feels distinctly out of place.
The comic is updated twice-weekly, on
Mondays and Fridays.
The comic is written and drawn by
puny male non-combatant George Hutcheon. When not
working on the comic, he can usually be found gaming or
obsessing over some small detail in decade-old magical
girl series. That's the kind of cool guy he is. He has
been called a "man-hating lesbian" on internet forums
twice in the past, and is hoping to extend that record
by producing this comic. He likes writing about himself
in the third person.
