This is our first creative submission to New Grounds.

It's Episode 1 of a new digital graphic novel / digi-comic The City Of Thamesis.

Please feel free to comment or visit our hub site at www.cityofthamesis.com and let us know what you think there.

Here is a short intro to the story of Thamesis:

Welcome to the city of Thamesis, capital to a kingdom divided....
Once the seat of power for an ancient, all-powerful monarchy, much of Thamesis is now run by the influential Britomart Corporation who use their seductive psychic technology to exert control.
It has become a city of torn loyalties as its inhabitants choose between life as a subject of the Crown or a Citizen of the Britomart.

Meanwhile down in the inner city streets, beyond the reach of either power, dangerous outlaws have successfully hacked Britomart's technology for their own gain, boosting its power exponentially. Some use it only to escape their daily grind while others maliciously spread terror on the streets.
As the city plunges towards civil war, can anyone bring order to the streets of Thamesis?

Discover how an ambitious young king (Jonathan of the Rose), a scarred ex-war hero a beautiful psychic (The Lion & The Unicorn), and a teenage scoundrel (The K.I.D.) find themselves caught up in the struggle for control of the city.

The story is only just beginning....

Thanks for watching

Very good.

I've not founded art as original and done well in a long time. The story seems pretty interesting, strange mix of animation and static pictures creates specific mood. But there should be more mid-scenes or some kind of info build-in in every episode so one will know 'what, when and who' in this world without any other material.

interesting

great presentation but this isn't the place for minimal business format or elevator music. if you at least get some voice actors the fact you don't use actual music wont be so glaring. personally i'd prefer voice actors and actual music.

very good!

very good, but it's not really a movie... I could have loved it much more in comic book...

artsy shmartsy...

the art is impressive and the concept is pretty original... but the fact that you have no voice actors and almost minimal animation just ruins it for me... this thing could be truly awesome but you chose to be artsy... frankly i think artsy is a word made by artists to be lazy...

umm?

the comic style gave me a headache, but I guess I'm just not fond of the non-moving people aspect
good story though
and good art
