...er rather My comic: Addiction
That's right, file this one under shameless self promotion.
I've done a new comic (mostly) filed in the HM gallery although you'll need to be signed in to see page 8 in the Adult Gallery. It's a bit dark and gritty but I'd really like it if I could get a little more feedback although I would like to thank Hisstoryman, Finister and CO4 who have already commented. The 3 of you are gentlemen and scholars... mucho gracias! For the rest of you, I'll make it easy... here's a link to the pages:
page 1
page 2
page 3
page 4
page 5
page 6
page 7
page 8
page 9
page 10
Thank you in advance for looking

Sorry man, you've been very supportive of me and my comic and I do intend to do the same for you as always, but I've just not had the time yet to look at it. I will though and leave feedback I promise.

Page 1, I saw sheep, then I saw the words addiction.
I soo totally thought you were going to do a reality show style comic based on Jr's life.

I think Jr. was a little worried about that himself. Hmmm, I am thinking a McDeath comic might be a great idea!

Your latest comic addiction is showing off what you learned from The Digital Man in good form. From a panel to panel, and layout perspective your story telling has improved quite a bit. I also have to compliment how all of the stylistic choices you made work very well together. While I think the busy, and hard, over kill of the rendered comic lines are a bit of a barrier to relate-ability, adding in the color scheme, font, and word balloon style makes for a cohesive design concept that work pretty damn good with the story's theme.

The story itself reads like someone kicked the Twilight Zone in the balls, and knifed it in the gut while it was down. It reminds me a lot of stories I would hear from my stepfather the cop, and his buds on the force. The dirty low trash world that is just on the fringes of where we live. Although yours has more of a happy ending lol

I think you are finding your story telling chops Pij, and you have an interesting vision that I find very engaging. Where I think you need to concentrate now is on the art side. For instance, the characters you created have sufficiently departed from the generic 3d model look, but the posing has not. The colors add to the story's emotional content, but for the lighting it is in only a few panels where it seems to have been designed with that in mind.

Overall I really enjoyed what you did here. The good far out weighed any short fall in my mind. And best of all the story had me jumping to the next page to see what was going to happen next. All in all a truly successful effort.

Thanks, Haz. Very happy you liked what you read. Yeah, I'm still learning as I go. Much appreciation for the advice and suggestions. I will be giving them serious consideration on the next round

So far I think Mr. Hazard haz said it best. I'd kind of like to see about 2 or 3 more short stories like this and wrap it all up into one comic. Perhaps have it hosted by some creepy Serling-like character at the beginning, a al the Crypt Keeper or Caine from House of Mystery.

Thanks Chief... hmmm, I rather like the idea of a Tales of the Crypt type compilation. I do have an idea for at least one more story currently (although it has a bit of a slight supernatural bend). I just dread the work! This last one took nearly 2 months at around 8 hours a day! Gotta learn to work faster! Still, obviously this won't be my last comic.
