I’m back from ECCC, thank you to everyone who came by and said hello! That was my last convention of 2022, so now I’m going to focus on my commission list and, you guessed it, MORE COMIC PAGES.


A poleboat, specifically. Is the next circle the river Styx?

I wonder if the boat will play “Come Sail Away” or “Mr. Roboto”. It probably only has “Boat On The River” though.

My guess is that the boat is on a river (styx ?) they are just on the wrong side of the border to see it as a river.

that or a mine shaft
It s too early for the frozen lake, is it not ?

Correct. Circle Five is the Wrathful and Sullen. Souls condemned to a swamp formed by the Styx.

The wrathful, treading through the muck, forever fighting. The sullen, submerged in the swamp, blowing bubbles, only to come up once in a while to take a peek, before sinking back to their little lairs.

The frozen lake is the ninth circle. Frozen because of the constant beating of Satan’s wings, and as far from God’s light (and heat) as possible.

Dat you, Charon?


Charon was earlier in the Inferno, crossing the Acheron.

Charon, in Greek mythology, the son of Erebus and Nyx (Night), whose duty it was to ferry over the Rivers Styx and Acheron those souls of the deceased who had received the rites of burial.

This isn’t a direct correlation to Dante’s Divine Comedy: Inferno. It’s not any one hell it’s all hells and afterlives from various cultures.

Might I point out that the last 3 circles have been lifted straight from the Inferno?

The second was the winds of the always yearning.
The third was the muck of the gluttons.
The fourth was the boulders of the greedy.

I don’t see those in Buddhist afterlife beliefs. And it’s not even from the root religion, Judaism.
