After the Storm


I got the idea to make a comic about foreign aid to the US from other countries when I read on Wikipedia that the United States asked the European Union for supplies, and other countries helped too, Mexico and Canada were a big help. originally I wasn't planning on adding them in the comic but I wanted them there cause I thought it wouldn't be fair to forget them plus I read a quote by Frank McKenna, Canadian ambassador to the United States, told Americans "you are our friends and together we are family – you do not suffer alone."
and I thought that was so sweet I just had to add it

Canada is helping to rescue Americans and Mexico is helping clean up fallen debris

here are the countries the helped us or at least offered to help us https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_response_to_Hurricane_Katrina

also, I thought of Lean on Me when making this comic https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdlPVBvkr-s

There actually is a Pakistani TV show called "Burqa Avenger", featuring a burqa-clad ninja who fights evil people that try to prevent girls from going to school.

Icelandic place names may sound exotic, but they're usually not very creative. Example: The most powerful waterfall in Europe, Dettifoss, just means "falling falls"

also if humon gave Canada a full beard he would look like Bob Ross

In fact, when you go to the Wikipedia page about it (I used the link you provided) they have an entirely seperate page about the foreign aid provided by the Canadians. I also find it nice that even many third world nations (Djibouti, Ecuador, Afghanistan, Guatemala, and many others) offered us foreign aid. Heck, even China and Cuba, two of America's most despised enemies, (though our relations with Cuba have improved slightly now Raul is in charge, as he is slightly less, ah, anti American, for lack of a better term.) offered us human aid. Thanks dude, if it wasn't for this comic I wouldn't have looked any of this up, and now my faith in humanity is (slightly) restored.

It gets more wholesome when you add in the fact that hurricane Katrina also affected parts of Canada, with heavy raining in much of eastern Canada and severe flooding in southern Quebec. Granted, outside of the flooding in Quebec, none of it was too severe, but it's still nice that the Canadians still offered us foreign aid while they themselves were affected by the hurricane. Canadians, you gotta love them.

darn it, I meant to write "Brussels" but I forgot to see if I spelled it right :awkward:

Brussels is de facto capital of the EU, I dunno I thought it be funny if King Europe said "oh my Brussels"

also, I really love having Sister America nickname King Europe "Kingy"

I meant to say "in" getting help not "and"

I don't know why people move to high-risk places like florida. For the weather I guess? Northern inland US has very little natural disaisters. I've lived here my whole life and we've had ONE tornado, very fast winds (trees fall but usually nothing worse. Sometimes a power line.), and a flood (one inch maybe in the valleys. I live on a hill. LOTS of hills in my county. LOTS!)

ok fun fact originally I was thinking of making an extra panel between Sis America asking for help and King Europe trying to give aid to America, of King Europe trying not to laugh at Sister America but failing when she went away cause he thought she looked funny with her hair all messed up full of twigs, but I decide not to add it cause I think King Europe is a gentleman who would never laugh at a lady in need
plus I thought it would make him look like a total dick
