    congratulations

    Story was tight. Definite page turner. Clear panels. Distinct style. A few moments could popped like where she asked him for a kiss. I did love that bird's eye view after that...but those two panels were the only ones that bothered me.

    otherwise...very clean. Dap for both you and the writer.

    Pimpin ain't easy...
    so i just ho instead.

    I WANT A NINJA, I WANT A NINJA.

    Seriously though, it was a cool comic with a good moral, only deal in living merchandise under the table.

    Whats worse, The realization of a deam or the realization of a reality

    Very nice, I like it a lot, but also have some constructive tips:
    Page09,panel1: Too complicated. Maybe you can remove running boy in first plane.
    Page10,panel2: You can do it more dynamic.
    Page11/12: It seems to missing some part of the story
    page14,panel5: It not quite recognisible that sword is near to see saw
    Page16: panels 1,2: This is lot confusing to me.
    panel 6: could go without border
    Page 19: too much same tings. I like It a lot in previus pages, but here is too much.

    I nearly cried at the end, such a parting of ways was never before seen...



    -




    I am THE RULER OF: Swissconsin- The only state made purely out of cheese! Bow to me the emperor pirate as I send ninja cheese warriors after you!



    let's not forget the Pimp of Doom!

    __________

    You look upon the ruins and wonder of who could have commited such a crime, then you catch a whiff of stinky cheese...
