Quoting Angy:
Ok, I saw that some pages have a different style and since there are more than one artists named it makes sense lol. Just wasn't sure if it (the lighter black) maybe happend accidently during the scanning process.

Yeah, I think that was my fave part overall. When he keeps on motivating himself not to give up. That's the heart of a hero...

You could also add a moment when it looks like the anthagonist(s) are winning. No hope for the good guys. What's more thrilling than to see your fave hero lying bleeding and helpless on the ground while the villain laughs and stands triumphand above him... and the frustrating three words for every reader "to be continued" hehe. But the story was pretty close to such a thrilling moment. ^_^

Thanks again for the kind support. I also enjoyed writing and thinking up the bit where he urges himself to get up, it gets you deeper into Rick's character I think. Yeah, I see what you mean, but this issue was almost that. The two were fighting a losing battle, until the end where they're just about to be executed. The appearance of The Pantheon could turn the tides, but don't forget there's many members of The Order there too!! Thanks for the comments, I appreciate them very much! ^_^

Thanks for the kind words! I'm glad you like the facial expressions and the general speech, that's the bit I struggle with quite abit so I'm glad it pulls off ^_^ The fonts are all from blambot.com - they're all free fonts.
Did you mean the page where the ant bites him? if so, that was a different artist, and his inking style is different from mine, maybe he does a lighter dark to my heavy ones. As for 3-5, these pages were drawn by Sean Bybee. His inking style is, once again, different from mine. Plus, he drew these with the assumption colour was going over the top, which unfortunately didn't happen.
Let me know on anything else, I'd love to know what things I can tweak!

I really like your style. The black and white is great. I think I have posted a comment for another issue already, that you are really good in drawing faces and expressions. Those panels are my faves actually ^_^... I also like your sound effects. Was wondering where you got those cool fonts lol. Your dialoges are good too. I especially like how he keeps motivating himself. Counting, and keep on fighting. So, overall I liked it. But this wouldn't be good critic if I hadn't still found tiny things here and there lol. They are really tiny, cause all the big important things were good ;) ... Sometimes the black of a page looks like dark grey compared to the deep black of the next page. I saw it once almost at the end of the book. Then on page 3,4 and 5 the drawing looks like pencil lines. Not sure if that was on purpose or not.

Good work! 8)
