Surrender You Fools by comic-chic Surrender You Fools by comic-chic
:mwahaha:

This... might be my favorite wide shot in the entire body of work that is The Dreamer. Poor Mr. Howard. But You go, General Howe! Well, for historical honesty's sake, it was General Sir Henry Clintons' idea, but Howe, for once, took it. The two really couldn't stand each other, and since Howe was the senior officer, he usually ignored Clinton for better or worse. For whatever reason on Long Island he used Clinton's idea, and it paid off.

The American forts, however, stretched for miles across Brooklyn, backed up to the East River. The fort seen here was one of five (I think) all connected by walls and trenches.

Was General Howe such an evil person in real? His facial features doesn't say "evil", but he can compensate with an expression.

My favorite panel in the comic.

No, he wasn't evil at all!

The story from issue #5 is a real event, though--taking Howard & his son prisoner and forcing them to show them the way through the pass.

We'll get to know Howe better eventually. He had some flaws (too much drinking, gambling, and carrying on with other men's wives) but as a general, he was a pretty good guy. Didn't want too many casualties on either side, and had a great and courageous record during the 7 years war.

Hehe, I knew it:P Cool guys can't be (totally) bad, can they?
Well, he fought for his country, we can't blame him for fighting against the rebeliants and searching for means to do that.
I'm staying tuned for more of him:D

You can cheat and look in a history book but... it'll probably be more fun to just keep reading. :D

Aww, you're welcome! If I had my way I'd post every page in hi-res but you know... that would make it really easy for someone to steal my work. But my pics always look better big and on print! :D

I told him that really wasn't his color. He wouldn't listen to me. :XD:

I.. actually think it probably has more to do with the filters I used on the colors to make it look like sunset. ^^;

Oh wow, I definitely did not notice those ships in the background, that is intense. They're screwed. And I love all the details, like the little tents in the background. Really epic shot xD

Ha ha, Screwed is a perfect word for it! Too bad Howe isn't familiar with it. lol, "Yes, Mr. Howard, thanks to you, the Americans are, how do you say?... 'screwed'. " :rofl:

Yes, navy = imminent doom.

One of the things that's so intense about all the battles fought in NY in '76 was that they were surrounded by the British fleet the entire time. I... I really don't know what they were thinking. lol! ^^; They won like one or two of the six or seven battles fought there. *headdesk*

Yeah, citizens described the British navy as "a forest of masts" in the harbor when Admiral Lord Howe brought his fleet in in July.

I... still don't think I've captured it. I'm going to have to put a really great scene in with more ships than I really feel like drawing, lol.
