Readers take warning, the first chapter is definitely NotSafeForWork. You know, [[InnocentFanserviceGirl 'cause Angora's naked for most of it]]. The comic went on extended hiatus in 2012 due to numerous personal crises for the author (up to and including computer death and undisclosed legal issues) but updates resumed in May 2015.

''[[http://www.meekcomic.com/ The Meek]]'' by Der-shing Hilmer is a graphic novel about Angora, an inexperienced young girl who has been sent on a quest to save the world. War looms on the horizon, and at its helm is Luca [=DeSadar=], the Emperor of the North, and his hellish adviser. The two countries are overwhelmed with as much terror, crime, disease and revolution as they are with those who wish to create peace. Soli is a woman looking for money and revenge, though not necessarily in that order; what's her role in all this? Armed with only her instincts and an unexplainable power Angora must experience and judge the world to decide once and for all if it is truly worth saving.

* TankGoodness: Luca returns from the front in a beautifully rendered [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matilda_II Infantry Tank Mark II]], aka "Matilda". Which is a good pick because it exemplifies all of the visual features people associate with tanks while also underlining the pre-modern atmosphere of the setting.

* DecoyProtagonist: In a fit of GenreSavvy-ness, the author chose to have InnocentFanserviceGirl Angora head up the first chapter. After grabbing everyone's attention with RuleOfSexy, the more mature character of Luca was introduced in chapter two, and Soli in chapter three. Angora is still a main character, she's just OutOfFocus due to the comic using RotatingArcs.

* FantasyCounterpartCulture: Averted the three ethnicities aren't like any found on earth, though the Pasori are kind of like very militant Finno-Ugric people and the Carissi have a Byzantium vibe to their architecture. The physical setting somewhat resembles turn of the 20th century Brazil with both Forest and desert frontiers.
* FlashBack: Revealing that Angora was once "normal" to use Pinter's expression, instead of the CloudCuckooLander nature girl she appears to be now. Presumably her "normal" stage was before she met "Grandfather".
* ForeignCussWord: When Luca gets mad, he reverts to his native language of Basori, the insults of which are apparently quite colorful. The author won't say exactly what he's saying, but it's easy enough to fill in the blank.

* GoodIsNotNice: Pinter's behavior toward Angora is rather cranky, and he has a tendency to flip out, but he's also protective of her, and agrees to help her on her quest.

* HairColors: Although it's a fantasy comic, everyone has natural hair colors- with one obvious exception. Angora has green hair, but this is not considered normal. It's been described as both green ''and mossy'', and it apparently ''blooms''. {{Flashback}}s show it to have originally been a normal colour (brown).
