No matter how much I look at that pic, I can't not be creeped out.

Iiiiintersting. So TITAN has created a personality cult around himself. Now the question is: Is Gil really in it, or is he just pretending in order to help his friend get where she needs to be?
I think Gil really is in it, but I don't think TITAN is exceptionally evil, only a normal conquerer with a good reputation within his empire and a bad one outside of his empire. Like most emperors. I just wanna see when Nevy's reaction when she discovers her past. And Gil's too, by an extent.

Yes. That is exactly it.
I had just saw that when you linked it o.o
Anyways, I can't believe TITAN really told everyone the story on "how he created the universe", nor that Gil really believes in that crap.
Humh. Now I'm interested. Anyway, my original impression still stands.
If Titan is actively promoting this god-like image, then he's bad news.
Unless he's telling the truth and actually did create the universe.
In seriously do not like this TITAN guy.
"Amazing? Miraculous? Inspiring?"
Backstory this early?
At least we will get to know some of him. Though what I really wanted was to see Ava confronting Maggie, as Ava holds the queen. But Gil's backstory is nice too.
Yes, we get it Maggie, you're horny, just sit still.
In this latest update, ouch.
Hm. Silhouette on the last page of this update matches the character with the circle background on the cast page (not Ava, obviously). Just noticed that the circle has the Titan symbol in it, as well.
I have to admit, being brought back to life is one of the better justifications for worshiping somebody.
Can't get over how good the coloring is.
WOAH. O_O FREAKING GORGEOUS.
Yes, being back to life is a good reason to do so, I guess. But he still lies about how he made the universe. Well, I think he's lying anyways, no need to listen to my headcannon until we are sure.
Yes, it's amazing *o*
What astonishes me more on this update is that Gil was burnt on a boiling ocean (and survived), and that wasn't downplayed in any way. No skipping ahead, nor making him immune nor anything.

This is truly a remarkable webcomic. I owe a debt to Moth 13 for starting this thread — otherwise, I doubt I'd ever have found it.
As everyone remarks on, the art is gorgeous, but what I find most remarkable about this is that the narrative takes a form I've never seen before: this is a sci-fi fairy tale or fable. The detail I so naturally expect when reading science fiction is entirely absent, and that surprise adds to the artistry of the thing.
Anyway, after today's update, it looks like we're going to learn how Gil and Nevy managed to form such a good relationship. It should make an interesting contrast to Ava and Wrathia.
Kind of weird that we're getting Gil's backstory already when we still know nothing about Odin and... whatever that chicks name is with the green hair.
Gil was brought back to life by TITAN's followers, not by the dude himself. Regardless of how the head honcho is personally the Army is still a large group of seemingly altruistic folk devoted to him. That's got to count for something even if the deity himself is revealed to be a wrinkled old prune in front of a vast console.
His followers aren't him. He can tell them to share peace and do good deeds to those under his empire, instead of everyone. You saw what he did to Wrathia's empire. Not saying the guy is fully evil, nor good, he's just a normal conqueror, like any other that there ever was on Earth. Except he goes all A God Am I, and it annoys me (I suppose it's fake, as he clearly isn't using his "omnipotency" to take over the cosmos).
Wait, was your point about Gil's devotion or TITAN's morality?
I don't find his backstory right now that weird, it seems validy in-story I guess. Though what I really want is to see Ava interacting with the others. Whether they want or not, she holds the queen, and I'm excited to see that.
My point was about Gil's devotion. He was not only resurrected (if that really happened) by TITAN's followers but his flashbacks seem to show he had a good time growing up in the movement. That's plenty of motivation to buy into their philosophy.
I don't remember saying Gil didn't have good reasons, I remember saying TITAN was a jerk with a good publicity.
