The Black Hand Fox Webcomic attempt #1

Remember Aspen Houx? The guestposter who wrote about maned wolves here? Maybe I should just let her take over this blog because she writes about way more interesting things than I do. Well, speaking of Aspen, for the past week or so I've been writing a series of one-panel comics dedicated to her. The hero of the comics is a fox named Subway Zebra from Serbia who is a member of a terrorist organization from before the first world war called "the Black Hand". The Black Hand's goal was to liberate the Slavs from Austro-Hungarian oppression. The Austro-Hungarian empire was mean to Slavs, basically. They also thought of Russia as the Slavic motherland and wanted to form a united Slavic state on the basis of their common Eastern Orthodox religion (it's a shame they didn't pick Slavic paganism instead). The most famous member of the Black Hand was Gavrilo Princip, the guy who shot Archduke Franz Ferdinand and basically started WWI.

Because Aspen has Serbian blood, loves foxes, and was in need of laptop decorations, I thought she would appreciate these artless, pathetic comics and like using them as laptop stickers or pencil case space-occupiers. Anyway, so I've decided to use her suggestion of starting a webcomic. This is webcomic attempt #1. It wasn't the first one I've ever drawn, but it was the one Aspen liked the most (I had her sift through all the comics and choose the finalists). It's really stupid. It just has a swastika man claiming that he loves all races, and the Subway Zebra fox is angry because she can see through his lies. The events of the comics focus on WW1 and WW2, anti-Americanism, anti-Austro-Hungarian-imperliasm, anti-German imperialism, communism, nationalism, and the organizations "the Black Hand" and "the Serbian Cultural Club". Special editions of the comic feature a mouse instead of a fox sometimes and Mexican nationalist instead of Serbain nationalist undertones. 

One of the reasons why I was inspired to start "the Black Hand Fox Webcomic" was because I love making propaganda to try to change people's views. That's all really. 

Sorry that you had to read this.
