OMG the incentive is hilarious xD And today's comic very warm and nicely written/drawn. Would write more but I don't know well how to put things in words so, just letting the picture and text with the atmosphere sink in, looking forward to the next update as usual, and hoping the best for both Mel n'Peterle.
I'm with Lee A.. I complimented your artwork on the last update. Your writing is also exceptional, especially today. You bring new weight to the phrases that you use. You don't hide behind cliches, but get straight to the heart of your intended thought or feeling. I've never seen '90s nostalgia done this well, and I'm fully invested in the plot that you're building here. *mad thumbs up*
Thanks Amon and Lee (and everyone else.) The biggest thing I've tried to get across to other webcomickers (at least, the ones who bother listening to me) is that writing matters and the more you invest in your writing, the more people will invest in your comic. The sheer volume of comments and compliments like these bears me out.
And to Bonez, yes, this is all inspired by real people and real events. Enough has been changed that it is complete fiction now, but that hasn't stopped the comic from winning an award for Best Autobiography a couple years ago and being nominated for another this year. And hey, thanks for reading!
I can see the motivation behind every character on this page...this is very well thought out, the reactions make sense, the choices are clear and powerful...I've actually used your comic to help with my acting somewhat, though that may sound weird...
On another note, I'm getting my own laptop soon for college. Did anyone save that wallpaper from a few days back? I wanted it pretty bad, but this isn't my computer, so...blargh.
I suppose the problem Peter thinks he has is that he has some sort of anger management problem.
I think he's right. Not in this particular instance, but he *should* be able to control his slugging impulses.
Because one day, he's going to end in jail or permanently damaging someone. Peter is a good person, so he needs to address this. Even if the other party deserves to have their ass kicked, he should be less hot-blooded about it.
