Yup, it’s the biggest city as well. Everything important, country politics etc, happen in there. Other cities exist too but the rest of the country is mostly hicksville

The stars on that goddess’ dress and crown resemble the star markings on Cypress uniforms. Is this intentional?
Hehe I’m glad someone noticed! It’s not just Cypress, the star motif is found in lots of places. It’s original meaning is mostly lost and forgotten though, people tend to use it for decoration only

Sometimes I doodle worldbuilding stuff
Religions are a fringe thing in modern Santa Luison although originally the city got it’s name from Lui, goddess of wisdom. There were a bunch of other deities too, but she was the most popular for a time

Every last friday of the month at a local disco/bar/restaurant you could see these four extremely loud female individuals dressed provocatively, laughing like shrieking harpies, getting wasted and judging loudly anyone who dared to try and flirt with them, while spilling wine and food everywhere, and ending the night only until one of them ruined a strangers shoes with vomit (it was usually the one with a magpie nest of a hair) but nobody could really complain because they always tipped extremely generously(Maaria’s Amber, my Scott, Leppu’s Leona and Suspu’s Helga ♥♥)

AW MUURA you’re so great!! I loooove the atmosphere in this one, legit badass girls’ night out fuck yeah ;;; what a dream posse

Have you watched Silent Hills PT (playable trailer)? I tried, and stopped after 2 minutes. It was just too scary. :(

Yeah, I don’t have a PS4 yet so I watched some playthroughs. I loooved it, especially the endlessly looping corridor, that’s the kind of weird shit I like the most in horror. Probably would’ve shat my pants at the jumpscare lady if I’d played it myself though, haha. I’m really looking forward to the game!

Is it too unrealistic if I want to draw a comic that includes maybe three stories or "parts", and each are about 10 tankoubons long? So the whole thing would be 30+ tankoubons. And maybe publish it, or at least make it a web comic? I'm mentally ill to the point I might never get a job, so you could say I have lots of free time. Unfortunately, the illness also makes me tired and I can't stay up very late. Why couldn't I have been born in Japan?!! So does this sound totally stupid and impossible?

Hi! Since you’re a complete stranger I can’t make any judgements on your character or work ethic, but 30+ books for a newcomer sounds way over-the-top! Do you absolutely need to make it that long or could you crop it into something shorter to maybe continue later if you feel like it? I suggest you at least draw a couple short stories first, it’ll help you figure out what your strengths/weaknesses are and what kind of graphic style suits you best.

I had no clue if there was any “demand” for Phantomland, what with Finland being a country of realistic comics about banal things - but I started drawing anyway because fuck it, I love my baby even if no one else does. Don’t draw a comic with the aim to gain a big audience. Big audience most likely won’t find you, even if you’re terrific. Especially when it’s a long project you draw it for yourself first and foremost. It might take a while, it might take years, but if your stuff is great and you put tons of love into it, someone will appreciate it eventually.

Also no no no no comics in Japan are a bunch of stressful inhuman bullshit, nothing glorious about it (as far as I’ve been informed). On top of that you’d have to deal with an editor who may force you to change your story entirely. Just stick to webcomics, you’ll have complete creative freedom and the best shot at getting noticed. I must repeat though, don’t get too dependent on attention because it can ruin your motivation.

This all might’ve sounded discouraging but yes. Draw your comics. Since you live in a socialist wonderland it’s technically possible to pursue whatever crazy dream you have without starving from it. So go for it! START NOW. Don’t worry about being “ready”, just get to work. Don’t make your 80yo future self regret a thing that never happened. Good luck anon!!

In some of the latest pages, Rossini mentioned that “government was a total mess AFTER THE WARS.” Does that mean that the country Santa Luison is located in was involved in a series of conflicts it lost, and ended up with ruined infrastructure and state of anarchy like Germany after World War 1? And if Rossini was a child back then, does that mean that it has been at most 30-35 years since the mentioned wars? What’s the story behind this?

Good question, thanks! Actually I might have to retcon that part because I’m not sure how many wars there actually were, haha. Probably just one. But you’re correct, it’s meant to resemble the WW’s in real history, basically this huge event that turned the country unstable and corrupt for a period of time. The war ended around 45-50 years ago, Rossini was born sometime after but he saw the effects of it as a child

Is Cypress HQ off-limits to no-ghosts? Or do some normal people pay quick visits there (like politicians or high-ranking police officers who have business with Chief)?

Never really thought about this before but thanks for bringing it up! I suppose regular people need a special permit to get in. Crazy political extremists might try to blow up the HQ if they got the chance :D
