Webcomic / Ask Risorgimento Italy

Go To
Title page of the 13th chapter of the webcomic

A webcomic based off of Hetalia: Axis Powers. It portrays the character of North Italy during the Risorgimento period of Italian history, along with cameos of his family, friends, and historical figures. The blog was started in 2014 and is still active. You can find it here:

Ask Risorgimento Italy provides examples of:

  • Archive Binge: Averted. The writer has started making posts summarizing character relationships and historical happenings that have already been discussed in an effort to help new readers.
  • Been There, Shaped History: Many comics show Feli interacting with historical figures.
  • Bilingual Bonus: being a comic about Italy, there will obviously be Italian phrases thrown in.
  • Heroic Safe Mode: When extremely injured, nations will fall into this mode and will destroy anything (or, unfortunately, anyone) nearby

  • Rage Against the Author: During an April Fool's event, Feli began vandalizing the comic and refusing to answer asks.
  • Shown Their Work: The clothing and language the characters use are both accurate to the time period. Also, many posts have the historical significance of what just happened explained at the end.
  • Serial Escalation: The blog and comic are both set in il Risorgimento, a turbulent time for Feli, and as such one event after another occurs, each one more dramatic than the other. The comic goes from discussing low wages to eventually, a couple rebellions and Marinovich's death. Quite the dramatic turn of events.
  • Underestimating Badassery: Played with. Due to the differences in characterization from the manga and anime, many readers assume Feli is not very tough.
