What will certainly come as a surprise to no one, or maybe it will come as a surprise to everyone, I'm total shit at taking compliments. I hope no one ever thinks I take them for granted or don't appreciate them and the dedication shown by such a great number of people to this funny little story. I may be a bastard, but I'm a grateful bastard. Most of the time.
You cool bro
I'm delighted that you so actively participate in the comments related to your comic. This is a writer-reader experience I've never had in anything else before and it's something, because of you and all of the other yous, that I wish I had more examples of.
Thank you for the comic, thank you for the interaction, thank you for being a person and an entertainer to all of us.
I am I huge web comic fan but yours has taken me through a world or pain and difference and love that I would have not expected in a web comic. I will be looking forward to owning some/all you your books.
Your comic touches my heart. For that, all I can do is try to show my support, and to say 'thank you'... even though I understand the 'sucking at taking compliments', as I'm an introvert which has made me a real pro at re-directing compliments aimed at me to other targets.
So let's try something else, a toast at this party of ours:
To mutual appreciation, between fans and creator. Cheers! :)
I look forward each workday to reading the latest installment in your story. The art is wonderful and the writing is amazing. I would like to thank you for sharing yourself with all of us through your work.
Nothing but Love
Mr. Twist, I must say that this has been one heck of a ride as a reader, so I can only imagine what it has been for you as an artist. It is not easy to create a world so real, and even harder to share it with others. So cheers Mr. Twist. I look forward to another amazing book.
Also, because of you, I knew it was Canada Day and was able to wish a native Canadian a happy Canada Day when she was out of state. Started a very nice conversation, so I have you to thank for that as well. Thank you.
This is easily the best web-based comic I have ever read, and amongst the best both on the web and in print. I look forward to a new page every morning, it's one of the first things I do when I wake up! Keep doing what you do best, man.
I remember my husband introducing me to Pictures of You on our honeymoon. We've been married for three years (and counting), and I sincerely hope it will keep running for another three at least! ;)(Both the comic and our marriage...)
This has really brought back some memories I thought I had forgotten, both bitter and sweet. This 'comic' is great, as it really puts life into focus if you let it. Thanx again for not only drawing this, but sharing it with us. It is very much sincerely appreciated.
All the craziness in the comments in the last chapter is because you're such an amazing writer, and the only reason people left during the last chapter is that the writing is as real as life. It stirred some rather deep emotions because was something that had happened, in one way or another, to many of us before - and your writing was too solid and real for us to shrug off as fiction.
Please keep it up, regardless of what anyone says in the throes of emotion - the fact you pull those emotions from us with nothing but some written words and splashes of computerized color is your proof that you rank among the top authors of our generation.
I've been with you for a while Mr.Gibson (I remember when there was no colour) . I may not comment much, I may not always like the story or the characters. but I'm following you on a journey. There's times where I'm a little scared that i might hate where we end up but I will say that bumps just make it one hell of a memorable ride. I ride i happily take daily (or at least every weekday) Here's to you and the world you make, May you always love it.
I feel I missed a lot with me being in and out sick the last few months but I will say this:
I am very thankful I stumbled upon this book one random day years ago and I feel blessed that you, Mr. Twist, chose to share something so personal with the masses. You have quite the story to tell and I cannot wait until it all unfolds. I know I will experience shocks, tears and a whole mix of other emotions that your work... yes that YOUR work is capable of making me feel. I've never seen you but having read PoY makes me feel as if I know you. Not like your best friend know you but like that person you always run into at your favorite bar on Thursdays after the weekly meeting with your dickhead boss. I feel like that person you tell how your day REALLY went using the words you really want to use to say it. I feel like that person you randomly shoot pool with , talk to and joke with every once in a while.
Thank you again Gibson. I have indeed been touched by this life's work of yours. I don't think I'll ever forget Pictures of You or the man that created it.
