We’re back

Dear readers and fans of Athena’s Downfall,

We are back! Somehow at least. We still have a lot to do and especially Mona will be tied up for quite a while, but we are trying to give you something new to read every once in a while. Maybe every two weeks, maybe once a month. We’re sorry that we can’t keep to a regular schedule, but we hope you can still enjoy Athena’s Downfall.

Working on our return

A message from Mona:

It’s been nearly five months now since we decided to put Athenas Downfall on a hold because I was going to be a mommy … strangely enough junior decided at the same moment that it was time to take a look at the world and was born just the day after I wrote down the announcement for AD.

I’ve tried to get some drawing done as often as possible. At first I was rather positive about getting back to AD very soon. But it turned out that my son likes to sit on mommys arm all day long and even doesn’t like to be put into his bed at night … So I had to chancel most of my creative work for the last five months. At the moment I can’t see a realistic chance to be anything else but a mommy for another month or two. But as junior grows, he learns that EHM! (as he referes to me) doesn’t have to be near him 24/7.

So: as soon as that little brat gives me his permisson to do something else apart from carrying him arround and as soon as I have catched up with nearly six months of sleep deprivation, I will be back at work.

Hope to see you soon …

Summer Break

Dear readers and fans of Athena’s Downfall,

We are sorry to announce, that we have to take a break from our project. As Sara is busy getting rich and famous with her fashion while also having a regular job, Mona is going to be a mommy in a few days (Or more correct: a few days ago… Junior was in a hurry.). We tried to get ahead with our work to avoid this pause, but it didn’t work out as planned. But fear not: we have layed out the further story and also have a lot of ideas that we really want to show you as soon as possbile. But first of all we need to see how things work out. We hope to get to this point in a few weeks. We like to thank you for the support up until now. Please have some patience with us, we will get back to the project and to you our dear readers as soon as possible. As for now: thanks again for the last year with Athena’s Downfall and enjoy your summer!

Cookies and scribbles

Like every year christmas startet early for me – I went to my parents, met with some old friends and we did our whole christmas-cooky-baking – 26 different types of cookies, for two big families and lot of friends – 4 to 5 people working for 4 days, from 9am till 23pm.

I made use of the spare time on the train by scribbling first sketches for page 13, which will be the last page of chapter one. I’m not certain up until now, how we should do the transition – I tried differnt ways but haven’d come up with a satisfying solution …

Sara and me will have to sit together to work this one out. I expect she will be happy to come over when she finds out that I have christmas-cookies.

Finally blogging

Besides our weekly page, we also managed to get a gallery and this blog online today. There are still somes bugs and details to handle. If you notice any problems, please contact us (message@athenas-downfall.com) so we can see to it.


Up until now there are not much Artworks in the gallery. But I managed to take pictures of early scribbles and put them online for you to enjoy. I plan to get more of them in the gallery while the comic progresses, to give you somes ideas about things to come.

See the gallery here …


This blog will be mainly about Athena’s Downfall – the work on the comic, what we plan for the future story and – maybe someday – upcomic events. But as our lives do not entirely consist of work on the comic, you can also expect some everyday drama.
