- I hope it's clear what Sam tries to say in panel 2, namely that due to their business dependent on ships arriving in the harbor safely, he and his family wouldn't have liked pirates very much.

- The flashback in panel 3 takes place on November 10th, 1938.
The implications considered, this may probably the darkest point in my comic so far...
Sorry if this comes off as a kind of unexpected gut-punch...

- Also, I am curious : Were you able to guess Sam's ethnicity before, or did it become clear to you only just now?

- Isn't "Kamala" a strange spelling for Camilla's name? I wonder who might be calling her that...

If the Reich had hung on for another year, they would have had the just reward of watching their cities vaporized by nuclear weapons... nuclear weapons that found their genesis in the research of European Jews they drove away from the Continent.

I mean, the Japanese did a lot of bad stuff, but it wasn't the industrialized slaughter of the Reich... their modern-day apologists are the scum of the earth.

You somehow managed to write a comment that could be applied just as well to my next page...
(You'll know what I mean when you see it...)

I guessed, I believe there were a few hints dropped before now.

I like the different spelling of her name! Camilla always felt rather modern for an Atlantean, but this makes perfect sense.

Yalala and Kamala!
(One thing I find so neat about this name similarity is that it was more an "happy accident" rather than something that I planned from the start!)

I'd been hearing a lot of bad stuff about Jewish folk in my life... Until the day I worked closer with them. They're kind and cool guys and girls who had my back. People forget there are bad person in any place we go and we can't take rotten apples as an example.

Yep! After all, one should judge people of any ethnicity as individuals, who all can have both good and bad personality traits to varying degrees!

It's national interests that make racism really take root. The really bad long-term cases occur when it gets backed up by religion, as it did in North America in the 18th century.

Yeah, when religion says that people of ethnicity XYZ having lesser rights is the god-given order, that's definitely a problem...
