This week's round of adventure takes place in Der-shing Helmer's The Meek. Started in 2009, The Meek is a beautifully and vibrantly illustrated web comic that follows the adventures and travails of three groups: Angora and Pinter, Emperor Luca and his family, and Soli and her sidekick Alamand. As war is looming, these characters are facing personal tragedies and pursuing their goals with lots of humor and many a serious moment.
Angora is a young girl who spends her time running naked around the jungle where she lives. She is on a quest to find her grandfather “at the center” and has roped Pinter in to help her navigate. Emperor Luca is facing personal tragedy in the aftermath of one war, with another one on the horizon. Soli is on a quest to kill her ex-boyfriend and with the help of 12 year old Alamand, she just might be able to track him down and finish the job.
