Basil finds out what happened. Or the result of what happened. :(

WOW that bottom panel has got a striking composition.

But ohhhhh man this is... this is bad news.

Thanks! I'd been waiting to make it since chapter 1. And yes, it's a lot of bad news.

I feel as if something should be said, but silence seems to be in order. Silence befits powerful moments more than words, and this is a very powerful moment.

THank you! Your comment makes me happy, this is what I wanted the reader to feel!

I'm going to try not to think about what's going on in the last pannel, and just compliment the composition.

As part of my "don'tthinkaboutthegenocidedon'tthinkingaboutitOHNOANNA" policy, I'm going to distract myself by asking why is Martha wearing a headscarf? Was it a standard thing for Greek women at the time?

Well back then going out without a hat or a shawl or something on was considered 'ungroomed' and not completely distinguished. It wasn't a big deal if you did go out hatless, especially for young women, but it did draw attention (and criticism) more easily. (Basil is very ungroomed XD Clean, but ungroomed)

So she's wearing the shawl here for two reasons- A, she hates hats, and B, a shawl will hide her curly blonde hair and not draw attention to herself :)

I see. Yeah, Basil looked a little scruffy by 40s standards, to me.

He is very scruffy. :P He didn't use to be before the war but now he just doesn't give a damn.

Can't blame him. :P Plus, everything's trickier to do with one hand.
