“Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.”
—Matthew 5:5

The Meek is a graphic novel about Angora, an inexperienced young girl who has been sent on a quest to save the world. War looms on the horizon, and at its helm is the Emperor of the North and his hellish adviser. The two countries are overwhelmed with as much terror, crime, disease and revolution as they are with those who wish to create peace. Armed with only her instincts and an unexplainable power, she must experience and judge the world—and decide once and for all if it is truly worth saving.

The comic began in 2009, and will be posted online until it finishes.

The Meek is written/drawn/everything else by Der-shing Helmer, a freelance game and comic artist living in the California Bay Area. She is also the creator of the comic Mare Internum.
