Trying my hand at doing some more stylized watercolors! These were inspired by pictures of Tokyo street fashion, and were really fun to do! :D

*Blares trumpets in the distance* THE LONG AWAITED RETURN!!
 A big kiitos paljon to everyone who has read, commented, and encouraged me on this project! I’ve learned so much while making, it, about Finland, about history, about making comics in general! I’m happy I finally get to draw Finland in his winter war uniform, I’ve had enough of his sweater vest, heheh. 

As you can see, I’ve tried to stay true to the style of the previous comics, though now I’m inking with pens instead of brushes so it a) looks neater and b) is less messy! I think I’ve improved a lot since the first comics, hope it’s noticeable in the newer ones! I’m excited because now we’re finally past all this prologuey political context stuff and can move on to the action of the event.

On to the History part!

I have to lol so hard at whoever thought telling the Finns “We’re not bombing you we’re dropping bread on your poor starving people!” was a good idea, because NOBODY was fooled. Finns in the countryside began sarcastically calling the bomber planes “Molotov’s Breadbaskets”, after Soviet Minister of Foreign affairs Vyacheslav Molotov. Also frustrating was that the Soviet Union at the beginning was still trying to excuse the invasion with a false accusation of “you guys attacked us first, so now our non-aggression treaty is null.”

Also pretty much the rest of the world supported Finland verbally, and denounced the actions of the Red Army. Although there were a bunch of volunteers from around Europe who helped fight, and some places helped sell weapons and stuff–more on that later :D–most of the Allies were bogged down still trying to decide what to do now that they had officially declared war against Germany (the “Phony war”), and thus were not eager to make any big moves to help. Anyway, many didn’t think Finland would last very long either.

as for the “good news and bad news” part for the battle of Terijoki. Good News: They did hold up really well and caused the Red Army a lot of trouble and delayed their invasion schedule as well, by basically barricading and booby trapping the entire town with mines, bombs, and a few strategically hidden snipers that made it seem like the Finnish force was bigger than it actually was.  Bad News: The Finnish force encountered tanks for the first time! Heavy armored vehicles, while they would prove to be pretty impractical in the long run, were still pretty formidable weapons that the Red Army had a lot of. Hence Timo’s freaked out face at the last page there. 

Also: if you haven’t read the previous comics, guess what Stalin wanted for his birthday :] 

This is all done on my own research and reading, through various websites, history forums, and the book The Winter War: Russia’s Invasion of Finland 1939-1930 by Robert Edwards. As usual, if anyone has anything to comment on, correct, add context to, please tell me! This whole project is a learning experience for me as well. :D

Moi moi!

Sometimes sa pic turns out the way I want it to, other times a lot of times I just get stuff like this.

Although here I think I just lost patience.
