Webcomic / Brave Resistance

Go To

Brave Resistance is a war adventure set during the Nazi Occupation of Greece in World War II. An American pilot named Hunter crashes in the highlands of northern Greece, where he is salvaged by a group of Greek villagers and partisans. However, the Nazis are looking for Hunter and his plane, and it is a matter of time before they close in on where he is hidden.

This webcomic contains examples of:

  • Ace Pilot: Hunter
  • Bad Boss: Herr Hacket doesn't appear to know any management techniques beyond bullying and threatening his subordinates.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Hunter
  • Cunning Linguist: Nikos often translates between Hunter and Sakis, as he speaks both Greek and English.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Nikos and sometimes Hunter
  • Death Glare: When Hunter faces off some Nazis, among other occurences.
  • Disapproving Look: Nikos, all the time
  • Dr. Jerk: While Nikos is extremely good as a doctor and surgeon, he has no bedside manner and he dispenses death threats as frequently as he does medical services.
  • Eagleland: The American protagonist Hunter is a downplayed Type 1. While unquestionably brave, skilled, and moral, he's just one of many in the northern Greek highlands, fighting against the Nazis.

  • Fat Bastard: Herr Hacket, who is extremely overweight and a Nazi officer.
  • Funetik Aksent: Sakis and Toula
  • Hospital Hottie: Maria.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Nikos will do everything in his capacity to help a patient. He is also theMedic .
  • Just Plane Wrong: P-51 Mustangs did not fly off of aircraft carriers in the Mediterranean. While it's possible to launch a land-based plane from that era off an aircraft carrier from that era—it was done in the Doolittle Raid and Operation Torch—a P-51 could never land on a carrier because it lacked the tailhook necessary to snag the arrestor wires.
  • Knight in Sour Armor: Despite his cynical attitude less than rosy bedside manner, Nikos will not rest as long as he has the opportunity to help people. As he puts it, "Those who had a chance to live, still do."
  • La Résistance: Set in Greece, they aid Hunter.

  • Naïve Newcomer: Though far from naive or inexperienced, Hunter is the only foreigner in the village.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: While most of the characters have realistic human proportions, Herr Hacket is an exaggerated wad of fat, sweat, and slobbering hate. Even the other Nazis in the comic look like regular people, but Hacket wears his atrocities on his disgusting sleeve.
  • Those Wacky Nazis: A very serious version. They occupy the area with a steel hand.
  • War Is Hell: Established early on, as the heroic American pilot Hunter barely survives a crash after a tense dogfight, is retrieved as a bloody, battered wreck, and spends the next few days in traction and excruciating pain. None of this is even remotely sanitized.
