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 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....

im being totally honest when i say this has got to be one of the best submissions yet.

it's graphics are brilliant, the music was perfectly placed, and the camera movement was excellent.

i dont really have anything else to say than well done.

i wont be surprised if this is in the top 100

Nice style

Has that neo-noir feel to it. Behaves more like a moving graphic novel than an animation but considering the fine quality in the art, it's brilliant to look at. The music sets a nice mood. Grammar could be better but not broken. Great stuff. Looking forward to #2.

i must admit i was a little put off by the lack of animation...butonce i got past it i found this to be quite enjoyable. it struck me as reading a comic book...a strong story...interesting characters...and unnerving questions. i will say that i wish there was a fully animated version...but for now i just wanna see what happens next. 4 outta 5

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.
