I am enjoying the subtle backgrounds on these.
I like the colors and texture. And those 9 mini-panels.
That's good comickin'.
Hasn't been around very long but I'm already looking forward to every update.
I love this comic already. I think it is going to be a more challenging read than Starslip or Chainsawsuit or that one with that blue-haired guy.
I had to reread it to figure out what was going on with that mailbox. Then it clicked.
I love the backgrounds too.
I'm really digging the art style. Very spare, but very expressive at the same time. I can't wait to see how the ah less light moments are drawn.
I like the insight this gives us to the character. With the mention of the economic Depression previously, the signs of desperation from emotional depression are also seen in things like this 'pattern' superstition.
This site has finally made me stopped instinctively checking starslip every other day.
What those guys said ^
Three strips in and already our first expression of pure, naked terror. Poor guy's in for a rough ride.
'30s style, '60s design sense, Metro feel and extreme close-up writing.
Plus, plenty of eye candy for the dyed-in-the-wool font geek.
And yeah, it is terrifying when I discover an innate inability to change the basic fabric of reality by, say, jiggling a mailbox door open and closed.
You can't spell "Candle Cove" without OCD.
Also, only now do I notice all the characters are sporting Monopoly Guy fingers. Kris must've done his homework on Depression-era pop art before starting this strip.
Rereading the comic, just realized how wrong I was for never taking up using the phrase "saving my ham"
As someone going through this for the first time, I really love that everything down to the panelling and visual language is so delightfully retro :) Panel four (uh, plus 9) especially reminds of tintin along with those old newspaper comics
Yep. That's Obsessive Compulsive Disorder alright…
