The US and Britain have an oddly heartwarming relationship. Especially considering US’s childhood.
Who’s Bulgaria talking to in panel 17? Is that Scotland?
Why do you think I would have a problem with Britain claiming some barren rock in the Atlantic?
I think you're going to eat those words later on, Argentina.
As my first ever Polandball comic to be approved for this subreddit, I present you ladies and gentlemen the story of the United Kingdom's latest territorial acquisition.
Boasting no natural resources and being, essentially, a giant rock, the likely reason for the UK's having claimed Rockall was in order to claim the surrounding waters for fishing rights.
Beyond that, I can't say there's all that much I know about it!
At any rate, this is my first comic, so I'd really appreciate some criticisms and advice. It took me a lot of time to draw but I really enjoyed it and I'd love to learn to do things better. I've already prepared another comic that I'll look to upload later.
Edit: I received some feedback that my comics are too large (resolution-wise), I'll be sure to make them smaller in the future. Sorry for anyone inconvenienced; I'm going to try upload a resized version I'll stick in the comments.
The first of many British victories at sea.
Fish is valuable, I totally understand you UK.
secretly weaponize seagulls
well that was a falling relationship
Untrue. I know they love me.
Mods want to remove your comic.
This is horrible.
Seriously though when is it going to rain my garden looks like a field of wheat. It's getting me feeling naughty.
winter in UK
worst snow for years, literally gets hit by a hurricane-force storm
summer in UK
drought for months, wildfires springing up
Hopefully you can understand why we've resorted to these drastic measures. Complaining about the weather to each other simply wasn't doing the job anymore.

i'm fucking dead
Run through it... I dare you
In a discord server of a famous Dutch YouTube animator every two weeks there is a meme contest with a certain theme. Last weekend the theme was "vacation" since school's out here now. I decided to make a polandball comic as my entry, which made me win the contest. .
The comic was originally in Dutch but as I've put so much effort in it (and the rules are applied) I decided to translate it to post it here too. It is possible that many would not understand the plot, as it could be a bit an inside joke.
That was the inside joke, it is a reference to the fact one of the video's of the YouYuber I mentioned got taken down by a record label as there was music used without permission (although I think in the case of parody it should be right but thats another topic). The song what was used was called "België" (lit. "Belgium") where the singer wants to go somewhere but every place he mentions is bad (Germany is too strict, Chili is too scary etcetera), except Belgium as 'everyone there laughs'. .
You should consider a disclaimer when you do a comic about some private joke. I'm probably not the only one who needs your enlightment over it.
Anyway, it's well drawn
What are those Belgian claims ?
If Switzerland is so neutral, then why does he have a positive sign on his flag?
No it's just two minus signs negating each other.
-1 * -1 = +1... I like to say it's a minus sign and a plus sign, both at the same place.
My entry for 2018 July's contest, where each character if portrayed in one panel needed to be portrayed in the next panel as well plus a new character. This contest had much potential and I have seen many creative comics and disgusting fetishes.
I hope you enjoy my far unoriginal comic which I started making 2 hours before deadline.
I also used to make comics... well might as well bank on croatia's recent relevance (relevancy?) and upload this comic, and here's the
CONTEXT: So there are a lot of croats in chile, some estimates say that up to 5% of chile has croatian heritage of some sort, but the actual number is more likely 2%, and both croatia and chile kinda just took ALL of the costline from their neighbours, screwing them in the process.
Also an interesting coincidence: Croatia and Chile both start with C, and Bolivia and Bosnia both start with B, just a coincidence right???
EDIT: Also fuck Bolivia's flag, that overcomplicated piece of shit can die in a fire.
That's what we want you to think, but actually their coastline only leads to more of croatia's waters so we still have them surrounded.
At least you guys did leave a couple miles of coast for Bosnia
Oh wow, a spin on the Chile Snake trope that I didn't hate! That's actually imressive :P
using the republican flag to represent nazi Germany
Then again, is that a bad thing?
The only curious fact I know from Brit fascism is that the younger son of a proeminent fascist (Oswald Mosley), Max Mosley, was president of FIA (the international federation of automobilism).
Guess that's why Germany and Italy dominated his era huehuehuehuehue
Well it's supposed to be the rise of Nazism, that flag is the flag of the Weimar Republic
For Reference: Fascism in the UK was attempted, but met with a rather lukewarm reception, with multiple political commentators laughing at Mosley and his blackshirt movement.
I see what you did in the last panel
And the final recap!
Congratulations FRANCE Many deserved.
Working on this has been a pleasure. Thanks for the support.
PS: If you vote Le Pen, you can't celebrate this world cup title.
Just realised I’ve never actually posted it. This comic is from last month’s contest. I waited a bit for the whole Macedonia thing to die down.
Context: There’s a giant Alexander statue in Skoplje, which is a bit funny if you consider him Greek.
Someone please show me how to draw animals.
PAKISTAN IS RIGHTFUL MACEDONIAN CLAY
Fun fact: Here in germany we call the region Makedonien and the country Mazedonien.
I wish I could draw animals like that. I'm too afraid to draw anything since I'm half as talented as a 6 years old
