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....

new style, wonderful, just wow.

This is so unlike everything else on Newgrounds. It looks awesome, like english noir or something.


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

People find this review helpful!

This is great

A really unique style. Great use of rotascope(?)

Story is a little confusing but I get the feeling you know what you're talking about / know where it's going. You've just got to make sure you let us know too!

Keep up the good work - can't wait to see where this goes.


p.s. Let's see some other cities of the world Thamesisified - New York, Paris, Berlin... I guess Tokyo is already there?
