Wow, thats…. Really cool, I like you you redid the story.
I’ve never heard that story before, but I want to tell you that I am really impressed with your work. The writing and the art are so moving and beautiful. I found this site about a month ago and I still find myself going back and rereading many of them (and sending the link over and over to my friends.) Great job 🙂 (I hope you know how talented you are.)
I’m always stunned by these comics! They’re emotional, have great art, and really give unique views on life. This is one of my favorites and I’m eagerly waiting for your next tale.
Words cannot express how awesome your comic is. Everything in it, from graphics, to words, makes a huge impression. Thank you, and please keep working on Knots, I will tell everyone I know about them at once.
Thanks everybody and apologies for the occasional delay in the comments, the spam bouncer is strict.
Wonderful recounting of that tale, which I knew from John O’Hara’s Appointment in Samarra. Cocteau’s work is always mysterious and brings in the unseen with shadows and light. Thank you for your homage to him; Your comics are beautiful and fascinating.
I found your site through koala wallop – where you shared our (obscure) comic with people there! Thank you for that! Karmic justice meant that I simply had to visit your site… And man, I am impressed, and now I really appreciate the fact that you liked our comic, seeing your work here. I detect some of that unique sensitivity and lyrical-philosophical approach to storytelling I have fallen in love with while reading Borges. Keep this up, by all means!
Hello, I’m glad you like it! Keep up the great work and thanks for the comment. I’m subscribed now to your comic and looking forward to see where it goes.
I just read all your comics, and like a few other commenters, my first thought was that this was (in the best possible way) much like A Lesson is Learned: visually and thematically. Anyway, brilliant writing, keep it up!
Hi! As you say, there might be a thematic closeness with ALIL in some of these comics. It’s not intentional, but if that’s what some readers are reminded of, it is indeed flattering and I probably miss it as much as everybody who knows it.
hey there : )
after deleting this post fort the tenth time I’ve realised once more why leaving comments on webcomics is really not my thing. You are however the first whose creativity has compelled me to not only jot down some form of appriciation, but actually press ‘Send’ aswell.
I just really wanted to say, Wauw.
this beautiful shiney jewel of a webcomic… well, just that, Wauw
please do keep up the increadible work, and
Thank you, thank you a lot
Thank you! Thanks for pressing the “send”.
I love the work on this site. Makes me think of the many “vignettes” of fictional prose I’ve written over the years, and of the various comic attempts that didn’t work out very well. Your success in combining the two is admirable and very enjoyable to me. I’d like to think I could have acheived the same quality if I had persisted. You’ve inspired me to continue my search.
By the way, a note to the narrator of the above comic, I can certainly see how the classic pose of Death pointing its finger at the soon-to-be-deceased could be confused with pointing at someone in surprise, especially when the pointer’s face is either an expressionless skull, or completely obscured by a shadowy hood!
