    Well for starters, I find the jump between "She was an artist and really liked the colour." to "There's the city of Kir Kongo!" very abrupt and weird. Also the topic of discussing Jersey Shore, does it really pack a joke and how much does it fit into this sort of fantasyesque world? Kinda feels like concentrating too much on the Mary Sueness and less about story.

    About art, It's very busy and even; you have a lot of bright, rich colours fighting with each other. Inconsistencies in character design, anatomy, poses, perspective etc. Just overall I'd say it's a bit of a mess. I browsed the comic a bit and though I like the carelessness and ease you do this with and enthusiasm, it is very inconsistent in quality and medium and some of the pages were an especial eyesore.

    I agree with what nofu said. In addition, the way you frame your panels regularly cuts off parts of your speech bubbles or text. You should be a little more cautious with how you set your panels so that information isn't lost. There's nothing wrong with having some space between your art and the edge of the page.

    I love doing this comic, Magenta is a real character for me. There are some things in my life that go into the strip and Magenta. She could be a mary sue, but she doesn't have any good grasp on magic. Plus she can't make friends, so she creates new one. I don't think she passed High School. What a moody crybaby to boot!

    I've learned some things about myself and comic making.
    1. I don't like doing the work on computers.
    2. I tried copics, but they weren't as good as the prismacolors. (Which is my opinion, don't chew me out copic lovers)
    3. You know somebody reads your comic, when they complain about how long your hiatus is.

    It's not perfect. I don't expect it to be.
    Magenta has been great therapy and a way to de-stress out. (Hence the bright colors, since they make me feel happier)

    It's always good when you love doing something and you shouldn't stop, that's the only way people get better at things.

    Though if you're just doing this for fun and therapy, why post it for critique over and over again? You're still repeating pretty much the same mistakes as you were a year ago.

    It's good to get different opinions from other people.
