I actually have been reading this as Mecha linked it to me in MSN.

I love it, and you do a great job with the art.

I think the only problem is that the font... typing... im not sure what to call it could be done better, but I'm also not sure how one would go about that.

Thank you.

I am legitimately curious as to what you mean. Is it the font itself, or the spacing around it?

I dunno, it feels almost too solid. I'm not sure whether I mean too blocky or perhaps just too bold. It might be both. It just has this quality of it that feels out of place. It might even be the size because I've noticed its quite huge compared to most webcomics.

It actually looks better on the most recent page.

Following your response, there was a sudden influx of people saying similar things. I do take criticism seriously, and the reaction to this is actually pretty overwhelming, so I will be looking into a fix this.

That's good to hear, I'd like to see this comic succeed. I actually showed it to one of my friends, but all he said was 'trippy' before his internet crashed.

Someone here makes a regular comic?

This is really neat. I like the trippy artstyle. Some of the proportions and perspective seems off sometimes and the artstyle shifts a lot, but it's not terribly distracting since it's surreal anyway.

It's interesting. The trippy style is done well, and the fact that the narrative jumps around a bit seems to lend itself well to the surreal nature of the comic.

What is this. I don't even.

Well the art is certainly great. I'm glad you started out with the trippy colors. It set the stage for you to basically do whatever you wanted with the art style. Can't say much about the story except that I have no idea what's going on, but that's clearly by design.

One thing I forgot to mention:

Speedy Cat is splendid like a fire.

Someone opened up a flood gate of positivity up in here and I'm currently drowning in a pool of feedback.

Thank you.
