There is an ancient tradition of supplication between someone in need and their host, called Hiketeia. It was a very important ritual, and was one of the first things I learnt about in my Classics course. And a great explanation of it came from the one and only Wonder Woman

You know the other great thing about this story? Wonder Woman beats up Batman. Oh yeah, you heard me, Wonder Woman is the best.

  1. Ah I loved the premise of this article! Just wish it was longer! Cool idea! Have you ever had your work featured on any other websites before?

    1. Thanks! No, I’ve never done anything like this before, I just have an interest in comics that I feel I should share with my society. I’ve been busier than I expected to be over this Summer, so i prioritised regular articles instead of long articles, but they will be getting longer when I return to Uni
