1st official strip and introducing Ra and Maat to the series.‭ ‬Ra was usually depicted as the king of the Ancient Egyptian gods,‭ ‬though he would often be combined with other gods as Ancient Egyptian religion evolved depending upon the period and location.‭ ‬Maat was the Goddess of truth,‭ ‬though some scholars see her as more of the‭ ‘‬personification of truth‭’ ‬as opposed to an actual goddess.‭ ‬She’s going to be more of a goddess in this strip though.

For the time being I'm going to try and update a new one of these every Friday, I already have next weeks ready, but you are all going to have to wait for that.

Apart from a cameo in strip 7 Ra has not been in the strip since strip 1, so I figured it was high time to bring him back, maybe give him a little spin off.

Strip seven is here, and because seven was a lucky number to  the Ancient Egyptians, I kinda pushed the boat out a little for this one. I also tried to think a little more about composition, so I included a pyramid in the background so that the sloping lines will lead the eye to the main focal points.

The Ancient Egyptians relied upon the River Nile for a lot of things including travel. The special thing about this river is that it flows from South to North (Upper Egypt to Lower Egypt), while the prevailing winds blow from North to South (Lower Egypt to Upper Egypt). This meant that when the Ancient Egyptians wanted to travel upstream, they only had to drop sails and ride the wind, and to move downstream raise sails and coast on the river current.

20 - One of the epithets of the god Sobek is ‘he who loves robbery’. I’m figuring he’s not that much of a fan right now.

On a production note, the first line was originally going to be, ‘Sobek, robbers have struck the docks and...’, but I decided to add ‘oh finally’ for two reasons. One was to try and make things sound a little more dramatic and urgent. Two, it’s taken me twenty strips to get Sobek his first part!
