Countryball Polandball: Feet of Clay

Feet of Clay

  1. Old, *old* project of mine that was on the shelf half-finished for seventeen zillion years until I had a rush of inspiration a few weeks ago and drew the remaining panels. To give you an idea of how old it is: I’m pretty sure I originally meant it as morale-boosting propaganda for the Remain side in the Brexit referendum.

    The comic explains itself, I suppose. The famous Biblical tale of King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, as interpreted by Daniel. Four successive empires followed by the Kingdom of Heaven, mapped onto the powers that have held all or large parts of Europe throughout history: Rome, the HRE, the French Empire under Napoleon, Nazi Germany, and finally the EU.

    Some of the lines map almost eerily well onto real history (“the kingdom shall be divided… partly strong, and partly broken”), while others were more of a stretch (“mingle themselves with the seed of men”… a good thing this isn’t /r/cuntryballs).

    Anyway, hope you enjoy.
