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

interesting stuff!

Very interesting art style, great sound design, and you make good use of the possibilities of animation for a graphic novel format.

However, and this may end up being a tediously repeated comment: the text disappears a bit fast most of the time. I notice this mostly when text appears in various places on screen and it takes a fraction of a second to focus on a different area (for instance near the end, when the prince has a conversation over the phone).
I'd recommend either lengthening the time text appears a little more, or indeed look into using voice actors to narrate things -- it's just another element you can take advantage of since it's presented in Flash form rather than on paper.
