    Hey I enjoyed your comic very very much. You are an excellent artist, and I feel attached to the story and Opey already. But you really need to rework your attitude. Don't say things like "I am surprised anyone is reading this comic" or " I don't know if this is any good." I think that this is what is holding back not only you but this AMAZING comic! What you have here is something ORIGINAL! Originality is based on gathering existing things and mashing them into new products, and you've done that in SPADES!

    Remember when shopping this comic around, they aren't buying the comic they are buying YOU
    Since I can't offer any real artistic advice ( because i see no errors ) Ill send along some advice i copied down from Jason Manley (business man numba 1!) it more for getting a Concept art job, but it still applies here!

    Crash Course of the Art Business by Jason Manley

    - Be smart of how to chase business.
    - Target certain companies.
    - Don't bite more than what you can chew.
    - Remember the importances of NDAs.
    - Look for opportunities, get it out there.
    - Keep relationships with people. Networking is one of the best ways to find job opportunities.
    - It always helps being a self-starting.
    - Bust your asses. Know your goals.
    - Find a mentor (connection)
    - People skills are extremely important.
    - Know about sells, you are your own brand.
    - Get fast, get accurate.
    - Be professional, be flexible, don't be afraid of making mistakes.
    - Surround yourself with great people.
    - It doesn't matter from where you are from, all they care only if you are talented.
    - Keep pushing yourself. Be never satisfied.
    - Be a shameless promoter, get work in many places as possible. Get your art and name out there.

    Overall I hope one day I can say I gave you advice when you first started out

    P.s please, DONT STOP POSTING!!!!

    Thank you, and everybody, for the support. I'm not that confident about my work, but that certainly won't help me in the long run. I do know I love drawing and will never give up on it.

    Thanks! My influences for my style are a bit diverse, primarily underground cartoonists like Frank Stack and Robert Crumb, as well as anime.

    These are three more pages of the third issue of my comic "Opey the Warhead".

    Mucho Grasias for the comments and those checking out my comic. It's a labor of love for me.

    Very nice work! I've spent the last hour reading your comic all the way through. The whole feel of the comic really improves with every page you add. I can't wait to see more!

    I think Opey really needs to work on his people skills...

    I think Opey should smack her on the can and call her toots, giving her a wink (with what eyes I've no idea).

    Omg! It's Opey! Yay! Hi Zac. *waves*
    I'm glad you are here to remind me of my only true path in life.

    (Why is there a time delay with those pages, if you know what I mean?)

    Leonor,
    It's great to see you here.

    I'm introducing pages bit by bit because I thought it would be interesting to showcase the pages in a serial fashion than one large overwhelming flood. I'm sort of rationing them, in that regard.

    New pages of the actual comic is coming along slowly because I've been really battling anxiety and depression of late. It's hard.

    I really hope that you pull through it Zac, and get some success off this, it's easily one of the best webcomics I've found on the net. How are the physical copies selling? I would get a copy myself, if I knew where to go to order it.

    Thanks, Richard (and it's great to hear from you). As an artist, one tends to worry about one's own work excessively as it is. I suffer from generalized anxiety disorder, which magnifies such concerns exponentially. It's hard to improve when you doubt every line you make, every part of the body you draw. It's even harder to take the risks necessary to make it as a professional, such as submitting your work to publishers.

    This hasn't stopped me from trying, however. I haven't given up, yet, even though I badly want to.

    I've sold about 23 copies of the Opey collection already.

    Thanks everybody for all the comments and support.

    Here's another bevvy of pages from the third issue:

    Opey has an unfortunate habit of doing this to himself. Still, he's not doing bad for a living bomb, though.
