I like the way things are unfolding, can't wait for the next installment.

Btw, the last panel with Shadowman is awesome.

looking great guys!! One suggestion: Be sure to name who is who in the dialogue at least once a segment.. Sometimes I have trouble remembering who is who :oops:

I think it is a common thing to do in monthly titles, just in case a new reader picks up an issue. Just an idea..

Great job!! :thumb:

The Geomancers are our special helpers. They have an inside look and help us work out the kinks of the story before it hits the general audience.

I figured that was it. You could not have picked a better set of geomancers. :thumb:


I still think you dudes need to do a hard copy when it is all done.

GREAT job guys! :thumb:

Sorry I have not been available to work on the project. This is the first time in at least a few weeks I have even been online. Too damn many bad things going on in my life at the moment. :(

There is light at the end of the tunnel though - I just hope it is not a train! :P

ummmmm, I love the story....but I think there is a bit of an error to this chapter, though hopefully corrected in the graphic novel release.

heh, thanks. I go by Zaphod most other message boards I freqquent. I still don't know why I didn't initially sign up that way here.

I figured that out because I got a nasty virus Thursday night, spent most of Friday reinstalling stuff and then another 10 minutes at Vfans.com messageboards, cursing because I couldn't recall my password.

Then I remembered I used a different username here.

Well correct me if I am wrong, and I was hesitant to say it but it seems like the art (sorry) for the character in panels 4,5,6 on page 32 is Peter is all stubbly, but has longer hair. but throughout the rest of the chapter Peter is clean shaven?

maybe I am just confused, which I put much stock in seeing as 3:50am came real quick this morning
