    Giacomo,
    I've never read "Black Hole" or that many comics which you might define as "emo". I called it "indy" because it doesn't fall into the usual suspects of what's popular in comics today, whether it's superheroes or zombies or whatever.

    Opey is somewhat based on myself but I was never an emo kid or liked that scene. I was just an awkward lad. Other than that, Opey is not a biographical comic.

    I respect your opinion but it's fairly apparent my comics are not to your tastes. My comics are what they are and I'm not chasing down some audience. If they seem bland to you or derivative, I'm not sure what book I could read that would open or unlock my imagination in a new or bold way. I'd only wind up doing riffs or copies or variants on those books as well. I simply don't know what you're looking for. I can improve my art, I can improve my writing, but I can't impress everyone or do a work that people will, no matter who it is, love it. Maybe I don't even have the chops to produce a great work or a fine comic book. Maybe my works are all unpublishable and the editors think I'm an idiot. Maybe I am a hopeless idiot. But I try my best, I try to get better, I listen, but, ultimately, I know what stories feel like me.

    I'm still working on my anatomy but I thought I'd post another image here.
