Thamesis - Episode 1

Share Collapse

Author Comments

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

That was weird...

Not sure what to think of it. The comic-style animation you used was in a way lazy, but still very original. The worst part was where the prince was dueling that chick and he seemed to be fallen. Then he wasn't and the music started up!--but then it got quiet again, which made the moment end up stupid.
_Overall a nice film, I'm almost curious to see what will happen in the next episode with the king.

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...


Aw, man, this is fuckin' awesome!! All my 5 belong to this!!!!!

Very original

It was like an animated graphic novel. Very original concept of yours. The story was very exciting too. Looking forward to Episode 2!
Voted 5/5

Very cool.

I really liked this art style than I do most others, simply because this was simple, yet creative. I haven't seen many other authors do this before, and its really refreshing to see something new.

I also liked how the conversation plays out. It kind of creates its own atmosphere inside the movies atmosphere. Very well done, and I hope to see more episodes in the future.

Peace the fu--. . .
