Wednesday Webcomics: “Everywhere and Nowhere”

Everywhere and Nowhere
The story’s protagonists at the end of the first episode

Merryweather, creator of Everywhere and Nowhere, tells a comedic story of two time travelers which slowly becomes a tale of horror.

Everywhere and Nowhere tells the story of Anne Guildenstern and William Rosencrantz, two time travelers from Scandinavia in the 15th century, and two of the supporting characters created by William Shakespeare, who meet one day in a library. They can travel forward or backward in time but cannot travel back and see their former selves, as that would tangle timelines.

Later, Anne and William discover a lab in the center of the Great Pyramid of Giza in Ancient Egypt, and come across a group of people trying to save the world. Both learn that both of them will end the world somehow. There are two other versions of William and Anne which are evil, which they fight, with the “good” William banished to a space outside of time by “evil” William. The “good” Anne later attempts to find the “good” William, visits Ancient Greece, Leonardo Da Vinci, Charles Darwin, and 1560s Japan, using her power to change time. William, on the other hand, attempts to do the same, killing an “evil” doctor.

For one, Everywhere and Nowhere, features locations in time that readers may be familiar with, such as Ancient Greece or Ancient Rome. The former includes Socrates, who is shown as a gay man, and the latter featuring Julius Caesar who bends to the whims of Cleopatra, who gets what she wants. In this way, it makes the series different from other cosmic horrors reviewed on here, like With Butterflies in Her Hair or Our Universe, both by the talented Jenny-Toons. It does not shy away from showing blood and violence, but it also has its nice, heart-warming moments, depending on the situation that the characters find themselves in.

Secondly, Everywhere and Nowhere, which has more than 180 episodes and is illustrated by PeaCH, is only one of the many webcomics by Merryweather, an artist who lives in Japan and Denmark. He is also known for series such as My Succubus Girlfriend, Meme Girls, Winter Moon, My Incubus Boyfriend, and A City Called Nowhere, to name a few, all of which are in an anime-style.
