Maureen: Despite being decanted in a laboratory from century-old DNA samples collected by intrepid gentleman time-explorers, as all true Chartannians are, I can look modern when I want to.Iothera
is a Science Fantasy
webcomic by RMG. It is a descendant
of The Midlands
, with several of the same characters. Like The Midlands
, it often shows characters' words and thoughts simultaneously.
Iothera provides examples of:
- Costume Porn: From traditional Chartannian clothing to modern Kyokanese, clothes are drawn in great detail.
- Fantasy Counterpart Culture: Kyokan resembles Japan; Chartannia resembles the British Empire; Beiguo and Nanguo resemble China.
- Magitek: Iotheran technology incorporates a lot of magic.
- Precursors: the Seb attained spaceflight, then apparently vanished.
Cassandra: We still don't really know who the Seb were — or how they built the Red Towers — or why they were on the moons — or even what all the stuff they left behind does.
- The Remake: Iothera is a remake of Heliothaumic, which is a remake of The Midlands.
- Rummage Sale Reject: Takako does not “dress to please others”.
Cassandra: I know not wearing the entire ROYGVIB spectrum at once is anathema to you, but...
Cassandra: It's easy to get distracted with these things.
