Denver Comic Con
June 30 - July 2, 2017
Looks like someone is going to be in trouble. Digging the tone of the comic so far.
Those guards use surprisingly polite language with their dogs XD
Hey, Anonymous, just because they’re Nazis, doesn’t mean they don’t love their dogs!
(Seriously, though I’ll be getting some help with translations in the future, so that my non-English dialogue doesn’t sound too… synthesized.)
Just for the sake of better german: If you wanted to say “Go get him!” it would be “Los, schnappt ihn Euch!” – so you just said “You (Sir – xou used a polite form) go get (in the sense of receive not catch) him!”
Me is german and me poor lil’ eyes hurt. 😉
So if you want to use my ancestors as evil guys, then make them please speak properly.
Otherwise a good comic.
Thanks, Doc! I must admit that I just used Google translate in this case. I had intended to get a native speaker’s input, but it fell through the cracks.
We’ll update the page with your suggested dialog in the next couple of days.
Thanks for reading, and for the German lesson!
No problem – if you are not annoyed by this then I could hang in there and just enjoy the comic and if there is sth to be improved on german behalf, i will tell so. I understand, you are in another timeline where WW2 did not stop in 1945? (one of the story pages says December 1945). I fail to find a “cast” or “about” here – or silly me is just blind.
Thanks again, Doc. Any little bit of information or advice that helps us improve the comic is welcome.
The war is indeed still raging in the 1945 of our story. The reasons why will become clear as we get further in, so I don’t want to reveal too much here. Also, we haven’t created a page for the cast of characters because we want you and our other intrepid readers to encounter them as they enter the story. In other words, we’re hoping to keep a bit of mystery as the story goes on.
We appreciate your comments, Doc. Keep ’em coming!
Okay, we’ve updated the dialog on this page. Doc Desastro’s suggestion was good, but I found another phrase, “Fass!”, which seems to be equivalent to the English “Sic ’em!” We also modified the dialog on page 12, to make it less formal. We’ll try to keep our non-English dialog more authentic in the future!
Yeah – indeed this a german command word for a dog. Orders the dog to bite the victim.
