Alythia (from Ancient Greek ἀλήθεια, “truth” or “unconcealed”) is a character-driven comic that explores the depths of the riches of words. Lucretia, a Spanish exchange student in English Literature, believes words are more important than food and water. Between her nightly insomniac fever hallucinations and her chronic bouts of searing loneliness, she struggles to overcome the darkness within her and rediscover meaning in a world that God appears to have abandoned.
Alythia has a rich and eclectic list of influences across all types of media, including John Steinbeck’s East of Eden (1952), John Michael McDonagh’s Calvary (2014), Fyodor Dostoevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov (1880), and Jari Mäenpää’s Wintersun (2004). It also refers to over 30 books of scripture in the Christian canon.
If you like reading, metal, or cute girls, then this is the comic for you.
Due to mature themes relating to mental health disorders, Alythia is not intended for readers under the age of 15. Please use discretion.
