Greek Comic of Our Own

Postby Viviparidus » Sun Nov 15, 2015 4:28 am

Xairete(?)! bedwere said the Roman Comic thread could be converted to Greek, too, and here I am. How about our own Greek comic? Here's how it works.

I. I upload a scene that looks somehow Roman/Greek but with empty speech balloon(s). Like below.
Image

II. You write the conversation going on in Greek and post it here.

III. The completed scene with the conversation you posted is uploaded. Like below. Words provided by bedwere. Thanks!

(words by bedwere)

IV. Ta-da! We have our Greek comic!

V. Repeat I-IV and we'll soon have a funny Greek comic thread of our own!

This is supposed to be a fun-and-learn project and not a game to "guess" a correct answer, as I have no idea what's going on there when I draw the scenes. So unleash your imagination and please feel free to post your idea. Any response will be passionately welcomed and complete the scene.

Let me wait for a while before posting another to see if anyone would come up with the idea for the bath scene above. Thanks for your participation in advance! :D

By the way, please don't talk to me in Greek, because I can hardly understand it. But I'm hoping to pick up the tongue of my first love, Aristophanes, as I work here as a printer.

Cool! Marke, thanks for your response! How cute! I love it!

Please let me know if I made any mistake pasting your words.

By the way, I wanted to understand it so desperately I've dug out my dictionary and textbooks. It's fun-and-learning for me, certainly. :D

Hi, Vivipardius,

The sheep should say βᾶ βᾶ and the man should say πάνυ γε. τοῦ γὰρ οἴκου τούτου βασιλεύς εἰμι. The βᾶ -- συντετμημένον ἀντὶ τοῦ βασιλεῦ. (Λ.Σ.Κ.) does not need to be in the comic. It explains the joke.

I look forward to your next blank cartoon.

Ouch, I thought it was like a "Snoopy and Charie Brown"-sh scene, but not quite. I'm sorry, Marke, I fixed it.

The βᾶ -- συντετμημένον ἀντὶ τοῦ βασιλεῦ. (Λ.Σ.Κ.)

To avoid future similar errors like this, I'll number the empty balloons if there are more than one.

With that done, now that I proved myself not very qualified for this job, hardly understanding the focused language, I'd be happily step aside if someone kindly volunteers to take care of this thread. Any taker?

Viviparidus, if you post your drawings with empty balloons on the Roman thread, I'll be happy to post them in this thread.

Gee, thanks, bedwere! Would you take care of the copy-and-paste part also? I'm hesitant to ask, because I know you're already busy with many projects here.

Note to Bedwere: To create the pun, I'm using ὀχέω in the sense of φέρω/πορεύω. Curious to see if you find a similar pun in Latin.
