The Netflix series 1899 then follows a series of strange happenings and reality-defying incidents. A recurring motif in the show is pyramids, including visuals of a mysterious giant pyramid in a dark, dystopian-looking desert. Reportedly, the scene created quite a controversy.

Brazilian comic creator Mary Cagnin took to twitter on Sunday and shared a long thread wherein she highlighted several similarities between her 2016 comic Black Silence and the show. Some of the similarities pointed out by her were a shot of the pyramid in the desert, extended to a plot about a mystery that is propelled by codes and disembodied voices, and the arcs of characters in her comic and the show.

Tweeting in Portuguese, the comic creator wrote, “I’M IN SHOCK. The day I found out that the 1899 series is just IDENTICAL to my comic Black Silence, published in 2016.”

Soon after her tweet, many came in support of her. Mary then responded with, “I’m tired of crying. Thank you to everyone who has read this far and to all my readers for all the support I receive. Countless people in the Insta inbox comment on the similarities. I’ll see the procedures I should take. If there is anything that can be done.”
