IF - Myth 011813

Take a Ride on the River Styx!
Only one thin Coin.

The River Styx supposedly separated the world of the living from the world of the dead. The deal was you had to cross the River Styx to reach life after death. The ancient Greeks did not expect souls to swim across. Instead, they believed a ferryman named Charon would give you a ride on his boat.

The ferry to the Underworld was not free. The ride cost one Greek coin. The dead person's family usually placed a coin on the corpse so that he or she would be able to pay for the trip. Sometimes they hid the coin under the person's tongue so that no one would steal it.


  1. Really nice love the stalagtites (Can't spell) Pointy things

  2. Neat style with great contrast! Looks a bit spooky (as it should)!

  3. Nice composition. Really drew me to your blog.

    1. Thanks I appreciate the feedback. Your comics are too dang funny.

  4. The stalactites and stalagmites coming together along with the river and tunnel make it look like the ferry is traveling into a terrifying mouth. Not sure if that was intentional or not but it looks awesome! Great job.
