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....

There's GOT to be more. That can't be all of it! That is freakin awesome.
I love the artwork, and the storyline is fantastic. I'm seriously going to show this to everyone I know.

Oh Wow

Flippin' awesome artwork. It reminds me of a better version of the cutscenes in Max Payne. I was really intrigued by the storyline and the use of simple animation really added to the digital comic. Kudos. +fav.

Had the same thought about Albion, still..

I like how you went about making this. Even though it went panel for panel, it still felt like it progressed fluidly. Great Work.


I'm not much of a comic person, and when i saw this i was actually expecting some flash. But, I have to admit, I liked this, the style was interesting, though that advisor creeps me out the way he looks, but I'm guessing that is how we as the readers are supposed to react towards him. Cant wait for 'episode' 2.

I'm impressed

seriously awsome. my only grouch is movie length, and the cliffhangers kind of thing. its just disappointing to watch a really ncie buildup to somehting to see it disappear with a series end. looking for ward to ep. 7+
