La Fille du Titan II by wingsofwrath La Fille du Titan II by wingsofwrath
"La fille du Titan" - "The Titan's Daughter"

Final version of the cover from 2011 for the first chapter of the Shadowless relaunch.

In case you're wondering, this is a comic I originally posted online on Drunk Duck back in 2004-7.

I stopped drawing it because I wrote myself into a corner, especially since back then I knew little about military matters yet I wanted to do a war comic...

Amazingly, this "early instalment" still exists, here. 0_o

Be forewarned, it's cringe worthy. Bad art, worse writing, horrendous lettering...
Also, completely non-canon by this time, but I think it's interesting to see the contrast, which is why I'm providing the link.

The proper story begins HERE: Pg 1

Something along the lines of the Paris Gun!

Pretty much - the gun in question can be seen here.

Looks more like the railway artillery piece the Germans used during WW2.

Well, there are only so many ways one can mount a big gun onto a railway car, but I do assure you, this beast bas based on three British WW1 designs: the Ordnance BL 18 inch Mk I howitzer on truck, railway, the
Ordnance BL 14 inch gun on truck, railway and the Ordnance BL 12 inch gun Mk IX on truck, railway.

And when America got into the fight, they fitted a 12-inch battleship gun to a rail car, with naval personnel in army uniforms manning it.  I read that the first round they fired was at a railway junction in German hands.  It was a couple of hours before a reconnaissance flight brought back word that the round was dead on target, and no other rounds were to be used!

Just pointing out: you can change the description, now that the first page has been drawn (good job on this, btw).

what kind of artillery or tank can fire this ? XD

It's a shell fired by a 520mm railway howitzer. I'm not willing to say too much on the subject yet, but you'll see the beast itself soon enough.
