The Punisher meets Little Women

Bounding Into Comics previews SILENZIOSA, the first new Arktoons series to be introduced since the site launched in April.

Publisher Vox Day and Arktoons revealed a brand new series that will join the digital comics platform in Silenziosa. The series is written by both Day and Chuck Dixon and features artwork by Renato Rei and colors by Arklight Studios. 

An official description from a press release describes the new series.

It begins, “SILENZIOSA is a series about a Princess of the Blood, Alissabetta, the daughter of King Charles Arthur III of Inghiltar,  Yrlandia, and the Skotian Isles, who to her surprise and dismay finds herself sent by her parents to a foreign school for noble assassins.

“She is totally unsuited for the Silent Academy, as she is a sweet and gentle soul whose primary concerns tend to revolve around kittens and clothes. However, her inner steel is revealed in the unforgiving environment, which has been known to prove lethal to students and instructors alike.”

Read the whole preview and check out the artwork there. After which, you can read the first episode at Arktoons.

The colouring in the preview is above standard. Sometimes colour can obscure the line work but they've done a very careful and clean job. I didn't expect the best artwork to come from a female-oriented comedy. In my opinion, this is leaving the Koreans for dead. They are hopeless at colouring and their linework always uses thick, heavy lines, even where inappropriate.

Nice. Sounds stellar! I've really been enjoying Arktoons, excellent work, as always.

In an earlier decade, I cannot recall the name of the series, but a newly popular weekly manga featured East German Swim Team-class women dressed in French Maid outfits beating the crap out of each other. We immediately dubbed it "Maids of the North Star" for its dynamic style - and while it's definitely not quite at that level, I'm definitely getting a similar dramatic vibe from Silenziosa's splash page.

TL:DR; Love it!

Curiosity piqued about SILENZIOSA!

Wow, Beth forced to be an assassin. Both sad and interesting. Will definitely follow this one. And I think I see what you did with that name there.

Wow, it looks... sweet!

I’ve never been into comics too much but I LOVE Hypergamouse. It’s so unique and simplified. It’s really one of a kind and definitely worth the Arktoons subscription alone.

This looks great!

I can tell a majority of the script in this preview is Vox's rather than The Legend's.

Exhibit A: "the slightest Modicum of Decency, regardless of her antecedents."

Will it, can it be, a female version of Vox portrayed? I wouldn't put it past the Dark Lord's having been to an assassin school himself. I just hope this does not turn out to be similar to the case of "Cuckservative" when, if I recall correctly, Vox once ruminated on whether he should have written more in the rhetorical style that John Red Eagle wanted.

Nonetheless, it's an interesting enough preview. I'll keep reading it.

The glove has been thrown! Medieval fashion vs Icema'am.

Marvel is rolling out a 12 issue fashion show gala and has hired celebrities to advertise the rollout.

Was it Vox Day or Chuck Dixon who did the word-perfect profanity? Not adding to the modern cultural sewer while capturing the moment.

Great-job vox.

I am looking forward to seeing Vinizia. I was in a place with a similar name two years ago.

The fact that this story is written by a dark lord makes it hilarious.

The Punisher and Little Women. Well SDL stated recently he liked the mash ups done by Bill McClintock so let's see what happens.

Why is she embroidering her own dress?

Blogger VD June 05, 2021 11:26 AM  

Because that's what noble women did during the Medieval and Renaissance eras.

Blogger bw June 05, 2021 1:54 PM  

that's what noble women did

Personal touch and skillz plus genetic ineffable perwerth?

Alissabetta's hand maiden is taking none of it, but is nurturing and reassuring without being rude.
