Brock Trueblood

This story is a "Descent into the underworld"

From Wikipedia:

"The descent to the underworld is a mytheme of comparative mythologyfound in a diverse number of religions from around the world, including Christianity. The hero or upper-world deity journeys to the underworld or to the land of the dead and returns, often with a quest-object or a loved one, or with heightened knowledge. The ability to enter the realm of the dead while still alive, and to return, is a proof of the classical hero's exceptional status as more than mortal. A deity who returns from the underworld demonstrateseschatological themes such as the cyclical nature of time and existence, or the defeat of death and the possibility of immortality.[1]"

 

This is a subject I have always been fascinated in, and the medium of comics allows me to explore it in a personal and creative way.

I hope that you will follow along with me as I illustrate Brock's journey through my own unique underworld.
