A new page, how wonderful!

This is the first time I haven't seen the new page before reading this thread, I believe. Again, you keep me interested because I still don't truly know the premise. Also, I fully approve of limited use of sound effects.

Thanks, all of you!

I'm not sure, should I post a cover blurb of some sort, to give people an idea of what they're going to be reading, or just keep y'all in the dark? Or should I save the synopsis until after I finish the prologue?

Yet at the same time, I like revealing my secrets one at a time :)

Hi, ST2M, good story!

I'm sorry about digging this up, but I just saw this, and I'm surprised noone has said anything about it yet. I'm sorry if there's something I'm not getting about this. In that case, inform me, please!

This goes for both sides, imo. Both you and FishAndChips werre pretty mean to Ghost in your posts. I'm not saying you aren't allowed to disagree with Ghost, or that he wasn't being condescending, but they way you guys reacted to ST2M's post... There were several far more diplomatic ways to do it, and I think as Christians we're obligated to be friendly to people, no matter our differences in opinion or no matter how condescending they've been. I'm especially surprised that Radical as a moderator not only did not try to keep things civil, but jumped on the bandwagon herself.

OK, that's all.. Again, I might be misunderstanding things here, so correct me if I'm wrong!

A few things, here:

This is a very old issue that has since been resolved and does not need to be dug up again. This thread is about ST2M's webcomic, not an old argument that doesn't need to crop back up.

While I feel I have much to say in my defense, I would rather not bring it up here; after all, this is not my thread. If you want to talk about the way I handle things, shoot me a PM and we'll discuss it personally there.

Hm ok, sorry about that, then! I didn't realise that it had been resolved. I can PM you, but I've pretty much said what I wanted to say, so if I did, it would only be a repetition of this.

Again, ST2M, sorry about ruining your thread.. Maybe it can bring more publicity to your comic!

The guy was telling an author how to write the story, plot and all. Thats pretty rude to any author to presume you can write their story better than they can. Thats all I have to say on that subject.

As for the most recent page, I really like the amber tone it has... its kinda late afternoon/golden hour-ish. Seems to impart, fairly wel,l a sort of... calm before the storm moment.

Thanks. ^_^ I'm a big fan of Yami-san, and I enjoy icons that have a bit of humor in them.

Perhaps you could give us a half-blurb, like a hint of some sorts that just gives us more questions than answers. >=) lol I'm gonna' get sued for suggesting this. XD;;

Boy, this thread's been busy since I was away!

Again, ST2M, sorry about ruining your thread.. Maybe it can bring more publicity to your comic!


Oh no, you didn't ruin it! :grin: Any publicity is good publicity right now! And in the words of Oscar Wilde, the only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about.

I'm glad you're enjoying the comic so far.
As for the most recent page, I really like the amber tone it has... its kinda late afternoon/golden hour-ish. Seems to impart, fairly wel,l a sort of... calm before the storm moment.

It was a rather unintentional thing, but I rather liked it...I'm trying to work with environmental lighting more, which is actually kind of fun and makes things look more awesome without trying. Also, I was getting a bit tired of the brown/grey combo.

Things are looking up for our heroes....NOT (but I guess you knew that already :p)

Perhaps you could give us a half-blurb, like a hint of some sorts that just gives us more questions than answers. >=) lol I'm gonna' get sued for suggesting this. XD;;


I don't even think I have legal standing in that situation. :lol:

Gah! I'm terrible at coming up with hints! I'll just spoil everything! (which is why Mechana knows the whole story already lol)

It's like...I kind of have a blurb, but it's about the main story, which the prologue seemingly has nothing to do with at this point in time! I think what will work best is a sort of teaser banner I've had in my head...shows each main character, with a one-word descriptor that sums them up.

Great, now I'll have to work on that too....XD

New page being pencilled as we speak!...type...read...

I'll be honest, when I first took a look at the comic, I expected it to be sort of played out, or rehashed. But no, this is actually very good. I really enjoyed reading it and look forward to reading some more.

It's in Soul Alive's links page. http://www.battlecrycomics.com/links.html

I never used that font, or cropped it that way...but it looks a heck of a lot better IMO. ^^

Nice! I'm gonna go read it right now ... well, in like 10 minutes, otherwise I'll die of starvation and never get to read it at all. I'll post my thoughts when I'm done, though! *adds to webcomic bookmarks*

*edit* Very interesting so far - although you've swapped it around a little, I like your coloring technique very much. It fits the mood of the story perfectly.
