American in Berlin 3 by humon American in Berlin 3 by humon
One American dollar could buy a German almost a week's worth of food, so while it looked cruel in the last part, it actually helped the general out quite a bit (Yes he has a name now, but I'll save that for later). And no, Alena and Gertrud don't know how their father got the money for food.

The <...> text means they're speaking German. It doesn't really matter in this strip, but later when people will both be speaking English and German it'll be nice to be able to tell who is speaking what.

"And no, Alena and Gertrud don't know how their father got the money for food."

Better if they don't know until they've reached adulthood. :-S

I've read all the strips you've made for this so far... I must say, it's freaking heartbreaking! To think a former general would be thrown into this kind of situation. Those poor Germans. And I must say - no offence - it's typical Americans to use people like that. At least it was typical for them back in the days. Just like France wanted to step all over Germany after the war simply because they could. Thank God there were reasonable people around to tell them that the Germans had suffered enough already.

I so hope you'll continue this soon even if it's a pain to draw. I'm sure it's rewarding in the end *-* (yeah, gotta try and convince you to go one 'cause this is awesome!)

A bitter choice. To taste the acidic sting of dishonorable conduct, unbecoming of an Officer and a Gentleman, or to feel the shame of the inability to provide ones family with a living.
This is good writing, Never mind the excellent artistry. I like it.. hope third one will be fledged out.

This is actually pretty interesting. I had no idea such events took place in post-WWI Berlin. But I guess that's what happens when the educational system's more centered around politics than facts...

Anyway, thanks for the insight.
