NILE: Betrayal knows my name (comic cover)
NILE: Betrayal knows my name (comic cover) I worked on this for two days. It may become the book cover for the story. For those who don't know it, "Betrayal knows my name" is the first book of the Nile Saga (Historias del Nilo in Spanish), an historical fiction book series set during the different Ancient Egypt periods, always setting around an evil and ambicious protagonist who actually existed in real life.
The first book, Betrayal knows my name, sets around 2514 b.C, during Pharaoh Baephra's reign, IV Dynasty. Baephra had three sons: Apuki and Ikenni (twins), and Gahiji. Both twins wanted to become Pharaoh, and were in constant rivality, but loving each other like family. Despite Apuki being an irresponsible prince, Apuki was the eldest and the one who would inherit the throne, but one day he gets caught having sex with a palace guard. Pharaoh Baephra orders to kill the guard, and then exiles Apuki with the excuse that "no king shall be some peasant's submissive". Since then, Apuki works at a gay brothel while Ikenni becomes the inheritor of the throne.
Two years have passed since then. Baephra is hated by all the kingdom for raising taxes to exorbitant levels, and among the lower classes of the town is formed some sort of a liberal group known as The Pharaoh's Cry, who plan to overthrow the king. Apuki, seeing his opportunity to take revenge, uses his lip to convince them that if they help him regain his throne, he will turn them all into his high command and give them gold for their families. The group accepts.
On the other hand, Apuki runs a double life: his two brothers Ikenni and Gahiji usually meet him secretly from his father to hang out, and Ikenni promises that when he reaches the throne he'll allow Apuki to return to the palace as prince or vizier . His brothers tell Apuki that Baephra plans to leave the palace at that time, without suspecting that their brother will try to kill him later with The Pharaoh's Cry. They manage to kill all the guards who went with him and Apuki personally buries the sword to his father in the abdomen. He leaves him to his luck so he bleeds out little by little, but when he retires, a girl named Jamerernefti finds him unconscious and takes him to her house to cure him.
In the meantime, the news about Baephra's dead goes around Egypt. Ikenni plans his coronation and invites Apuki, but in the middle of it, just when Ikenni is crowning him as a prince, Baephra opens the doors...
