I hate writing in dactylic hexameter...

For more information on dactylic hexameter poetry visit:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dactylic_hexameter

Ugh, English just doesn't seem to fit into old heroic verse the way Latin (or Greek) can! >.< As far as dactylic hexameter poetry goes, what I have written up there isn't terrible per se, but it's not masterpiece worthy. Thankfully for me, there will only be one, maybe two more pages where I will have to write in DH.

(Please see the News page about how to read this poem! The first two lines are actually the same first stanza.)
-----------------------
I started this page a while back. Since then, my art technique and placement has gotten better. Hopefully, the next page will be of better quality. At least this beats the test page!

P.S: The first line of this page is based off the first line of a very famous classical epic. Can you figure out which one?

Responses to comments from the test page:

@EZWheels: Glad you like my style. Welcome aboard. ^.^

@ Bresong: My version of Josie looks like Cynder? Funny... I'm not seeing much of a resemblence here, except maybe a similar proud stance. :P But to each his own, I guess...

Update to page: I changed some of the words in the poem because of a composition error that I made... >.<

I'm going to guess Beowulf. But that's probably 'cause it's the only epic poem I've read.

Test page? *does not see* Oh well, I'm digging the alterations to the CSS if that's what the test page was for. ^^

I hate to be "that guy",
But what ever happened to this? I really think this comic has a lot of potential, and it would be wonderful to see more of it. :)
