"...one from the other." Just beautiful and evocative!

Thanks Cattservant, that's what we strive for!

I like how you've tackled the opening exposition necessary for a grand, world-building story such as this. I don't think I've ever seen you use so much color before, either, and that's a lot of fun. Might I suggest lightening and de-saturating your colors just a bit, this seems to help emphasize the sense of depth and put more emphasis on your lines.

Thanks for the advice! I definitely want the color and linework to support each other. I think the "house styles" of Marvel and DC generally pit color and ink against each other. Bleah!

That last panel looks pure Moebius. Great work! But is it just me, or is there a huge blank spot up above your comic?

What sort of device (PC, Mac, mobile etc...) are you using, and what web browser? This site looks fine on Firefox and Safari, but might not have been tested for others.

I'm using Chrome on a Mac. For me, there is a gap the size of three of your repeating background stripes between the navigation icons up top and the placement of your comic - About 3-4" of screen space.

Out of curiosity, I opened it up in Firefox and it looks fine there. Here is a screen shot of the view I get in Chrome, FWIW - http://i.imgur.com/9q6Nk.jpg

Gorgeous layout and backgrounds, BTW!

Thanks for the bug report KFP, hopefully we can get that ironed out. Also, I'm a huge fan of Moebius, so that comment is nice to hear.

I didn't know this comic existed. I think this page is the best so far; I love the depth, color, and detail in each frame. The wierd creatures is another thing that I like. It's hard to choose which of the three frames I like the best because they all have something unique and entertaining to offer.
