Congrats! Well deserved!
Peace, Love and Harmony... I could never get them all into bed at the same time!
I want one... Very cool story and artwork
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.
yes thats wonderful work mate!
but pages are toooo small
i cant read it well
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
Congrats man! But in my opinion, i prefered the comics better when there wasnt any dialog, like the one u originaly posted. Nevertheless, i think its a great piece
I don't usually post just to say something is awsome but...
THAT WAS AWSOME!
Thanks, everybody!!! I certainly appreciate the comments. keep them coming!
man i loved the initial set of pages you showed before, but this just steps it up
haha sweet job man, is it all illustrator? i like the line work, no crits here
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.
do oyu have a pdf of your comic?
if yes, pleasssssssssssseeeee put
it in , thats cool comic thx
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...
