Just a suggestion to remedy a major annoyance.

If possible, it'd be great to not wipe a comment's text if you've forgotten to log on. Few things are as annoying as taking the time to type a long comment and click post, only to have that comment be wiped with a message saying "You have to be logged in to comment." You can't even click "back" to retrieve the text you had typed--you simply have to retype everything (which is especially upsetting when it's a long, carefully worded comment). I almost always use Firefox, so if another browser doesn't have this problem, that'd be a good enough "fix" for me.

Woo-hoo! Fusion passes all tests. Of course romance in the comic is kept to a minimum (although she does have a boyfriend), so pretty much all of the sexual stuff is a moot point.

That's a gorgeous page (and not just because of the nekkid lady). Lines and shadows are beautifully done, as is the layout. Speaking of which, very nice touch with the building in the gutters--it adds to the city feel very nicely. Dialogue is great as well. The whole conversation about bagging the hand made me chuckle several times. You've got yourself another subscriber.

In Fusion, our gal delivers a beating to a few dozen helicopters. (Link in sig.)

I like the character designs and colors. The layout and framing in "The Cook" are especially nice (choice of angles is great). Be sure to double-check your grammar. There are a number of typos on the pages. Also, since it's a webcomic, take advantage of that and make text corrections as you discover them. (For example, last text bubble of "The Cook" has numerous run-ons. It'd read better as, "Hmmm. It's cold out there. Maybe I'll add some peppers to the soup . . . That should warm those poor people up." In "A Change of Plans," second panel should read, "lost your minds" plural, and "We are guests" plural. There are other typos too.)

In Fusion, it looks like the situation in Darmar is starting to intensify (link in sig).

I like the figures in Ijona Mono. Nice, smooth lines, good forms, good manga look. The cuddle on the latest page is cute (and a nice continuation from the previous page).

[Aoihide beat me to the Two Hearts review, but I'll leave it here anyway.]
I love the colors of Two Hearts--reminds me a lot of the art in the Amulet series by Kazu Kibuishi (and that's a very good thing). Seems like mischief and fun in the story (another good thing). Gonna have to read through the archives.

In Fusion, our gal meets up with a superhero from the region she's in, and his name is one that causes Bob to groan. (Link in sig.)

That's some gorgeous art, and VERY nice water effects. The underwater lighting on the first page is spectacular, as is the look of the lava in the later pages. Plus the legend-like telling of the story is pretty cool. You got yourself another subscriber!

In Fusion, our heroine goes to chat with another super. Is this newcomer friend or foe? (Link in sig.)

I like the "spattered" panels and word bubbles--they give everything a nightmarish feel, as if everything isn't exactly tangible. The bizarreness of the situations in the comic only add to that nightmarish, dream-like quality, making even seemingly mundane events, as in this latest page, feel ominous. Might want to make sure that there is sufficient white to the word bubbles, though. A few of the words are a bit difficult to read when the text merges into the background.

In Fusion, things take a more serious, and emotional, turn for our heroine. (Link in sig.)

Feloran Chronicles--Nice framing, and very nice top-down view in the last panel. Those sorts of angles always give me problems. I also like the strong colors you use.

Twilight Trust--Again, nice framing and layout. I know the out-of-panel bodies and faces are fairly conventional, but there's nothing wrong with conventions that work, and your framing gives the panels a dynamic look. Might want to thicken the lines for the outlines of your characters a tad; doing so would probably help them pop out more from the background. (Or you could use thinner lines for the backgrounds.)

Needless to say, your art is consistent across both titles, and I tip my hat to anyone who can maintain multiple updates in a week (let alone 2 in a day).

Over at Fusion, it seems X-Ponent sees a deeper meaning to Brooder's name than most people (link in sig).

Nice panel layout and good framing for the panels. I also like the overlapping speech bubbles to show how she's cutting off the guy mid-speech. Because of the way you color, you might want to thicken the lines on your characters a bit. Thickening the outlines will help them pop from the background a bit more, and thickening the details a tad will likewise make them pop. For your coloring method, you do manage some nice blends and gradients.

In Fusion, we finally get a look at Brooder out of costume . . . and his identity may be a bit surprising. (Link in sig.)

Link to Ryuskrew is down. Also tried Googling it, but your DeviantArt page also seems to be down. [Okay. Now the post this referred to is gone. Odd. Guess I'll go to the new post above this one.]

Out of Wack--The URL made me chuckle. I also looked back through a few pages, and they likewise made me chuckle. I especially liked the Hungry, Hungry Hippos gag.

In Fusion, Brooder undresses and teases readers a bit with his identity. Oh, and there's some story talk going on too. (Link in sig.)

I love the style and colors, as well as the conceit of the forests. The characters also have me intrigued. I just subscribed; now to read the archives. Very nice work!

For Fusion, the 9th issue kicks off with the cover; it doesn't seem like things will be going any easier for our heroine after what she started last issue (link in sig).

TheOneBlueGecko:
anarcha:UK Being Human-- I really liked the first season even though I'm too sensitive for any kind of gore usually. Dropped out 3rd season-- gore, gore gore. I did basically like the characters though so I wonder if it's worth it to go back.


I actually stopped watching at the end of the 3rd because I felt like it was shifting too much away from the show I liked. I've heard mixed reviews of the final two seasons.

Yeah, there was a big shift from seasons 3 to 4. (Fourth season forces a Doctor Who vibe into the show.) I much prefer the first 3 seasons; the relationships and dialogue felt much more organic and natural. The fourth season felt scripted, and a lot of the humor felt forced. I'll still watch the fifth season (it's only 6 episodes, after all), but I don't have anywhere near the attachment to the characters (not that the cast is bad--it's more the writing) or compulsion to watch it as I did with seasons 2 and 3. One thing with the new cast: Everytime Hal speaks (the vampire), I keep picturing Cary Elwes in a soundbooth dubbing his dialogue. I keep waiting for him to say, "As you wish," or, "Unlike some former lead vampires on this show, I can speak with an English accent."

Playing Ni No Kuni. Game is gorgeous--feels like a fully explorable Ghibli movie. Problem is, I don't play games that much, and a 40-hour game like this will probably take me months to play through.

My wife got me hooked on the BBC show "Being Human." Watched the first 3 seasons in a little over a week.

The backgrounds do look nice, and the designs are much better than a plain white background. Plus, the grass in the first panel looks really nice. I know backgrounds can be tedious, but one "cheat" that I use a lot is to draw your backgrounds as a complete image. Then you can drop that same background image behind your main panel elements in other panels, and rotate it, crop it, resize it, etc. in other panels, so that you can do "complete" backgrounds for numerous panels with only a single background image.

Your lines may be a bit thin, but you use a lot of gray, so your characters never feel like they dissolve into the background. You can thicken the lines if you like, but I don't think it's necessary.

Still, as I think I commented before, I do like your character designs, and you handle expressions nicely; your art looks very nice and is not something to be embarrassed about.

For Fusion, today's update is just a little personal message from Savunn herself (link in sig).

Ha! Love it. That explains so many things. I assume the single-sock-stealing gnome is somewhere in there too. And the tile-tripping gnome. (You know . . . the guy that pushes up the floor tiles slightly to make you trip on what is otherwise a perfectly flat floor?) Might want to lighten the green of the sofa a tad since it blends in with the pants.

Anyway, Issue #8 of Fusion draws to a close this week (link in sig).

I like the way you handled the smoke/debris cloud. Page flows nicely too. One minor point--watch text placement for the background voices. The "Who's hurt" and particularly "Is everyone OK?" lines get lost a bit in the debris cloud. Simply moving them to a space with more white would've cleared that up. (Of course, if the voices are muffled because of the wreckage, your placement would relay that point.)

In Fusion, the militia makes an attempt to rally. Think it'll be a problem for our gal? (Link in sig.)

Nice textures on the clothing, and the expression says it all. Bait indeed. Due to the smoothness of the clothing texture, the lines for the arms should probably be a bit smoother; their sketchiness is a pretty stark contrast to the clothing. The simple background on this page is also fitting and better than just a plain white backdrop.

In Fusion, our gal at last begins to take out a genocidal militia. (Link in sig.)

I really like the cartoony style and character interaction. The colors are nice and bold. Very nice presentation. And Hoarse McRuff is an awesome name!

In Fusion, it seems the tables are about to be turned on the militia group. (Link in sig.)
