This is supposed to take place at Nekromanteion ("Oracle of Death"), but I have improvised quite a bit with the backgrounds. For panel four I have used photos from the ruins that perhaps once were Nekromanteion (dating back to Hellenistic times, though according to Herodotus there was a Nekromanteion as early as the 6th century BCE).

The door in panel five is an ordinary temple door from the Classic period and in the last panel I was inspired by old Mycenaean tombs. In other words, it's a total mix of different styles from different epochs. Don't expect historical accuracy in this comic.

What you CAN expect are crazy gods, philosophical discussions and adorable, confused dead people. Hope you will enjoy it :D
