A coin with a swastika on it. I know the universe of Westward and ours both had Nazi Germany. Looks like this is the "Indiana Jones" inspired portion of our program. I wonder if this coin is connected in some way to the Epiphany event?
Just another strand in a fairly complex plot. As long as it's interesting, I'm happy!
Nazis, eh? That can't be good! Nice to see the comic developing in new and unusual directions.
And thanks for the the kind words on my comic.
Is it my imagination or is Lamont partly invisible in panel 2? The line from that structure seems to extend into his shoulder and across his back.
I knew that would come back to bite me. The line of the ridge precisely lines up to the seem of his jacket. At the time I was drawing it, I noticed the problem but chose not to do anything about it. In hindsight, I should have. :p
I'm from the future, and I can tell you that it turns out Lamont is actually just a random mineral spattering on 4 rock faces and the ground. We only think he's there at all because of the angle we're looking at.
It's a well documented effect.
Many other Cultures used the Swastika before and after the brief tenure of the Nazis. Though there are runes on the coin. The swastika was called "Thor's Hammer."
