Holy carp... Just one point difference.

Still wish my char would be approved so I could fight allready, but something tells me Black or Macabre fighting a rooster would be too out of place... or something... Ah well.

Give it a few more traumatizing flashbacks and you can definitely bet on some demonic good fun. In the meanwhile, I personally consider this a meaningful victory on both our parts. Thanks.

wow I loooove these!

Black: Awesome! nice storyline! I love it :D It entertained me. But my itty bitty qualms (might be clash with your style :\\ ) are that all your pages have slightly \'blurry\' feeling in it (which is I cannot really picture how it would look if it\'s printed for a book or something..),  and I understand it might be your style, which I maybe have no say on it, but since I\'m a reader now I would like to address few things.

I love the story, ok since that came across quite clearly I don\'t have to elaborate more :P I kinda wish your panels sometimes have clear distinction from one to another though. The thing is, I find it from your entry that your comics kinda lacking foreground-middleground-background sense, and I guess it\'s from the lack of differences between lines. They sorta mesh together, which is not so good to catch readers\' interest when they\'re doing  quick reads. It\'s quite chaotic, maybe it\'s what you\'re aiming for but in this case, it doesn\'t work so well.. so yeah.

Also I find your characters kind of inconsistent (proportionally wise), but then again, it doesn\'t really hurt the story. But do take it as consideration to improve :D And maybe it would be a good idea to try different methods of inking at some point of time or another, who knows, it might work really well (or not lol but hey, wouldn\'t hurt to try right?)

Other than that, I am quite pleased, The atmoshphere is great, you have knack of writing, so thanks for the great read!

MACAABREE- I totally love your quality, clear lines and nice black and white usage, also your style is cool! I like the fact you kept using that particular shape of macabre\'s expression, which is very iconic. The story, though it isn\'t as indulging as Black\'s, is quite entertaining. You successfully build a certain atmoshphere which I can tell you\'ll carry over your future battles. I love your take on Black\'s character\'s as well, he looks so awesome (i almost fangirl over him! hahaha) and your forced perspectives suits your style quite well too.

My only beef is that I THINK the setting is not well-established enough (in some panels perhaps will be better if you took a little more time to do the backgrounds.), and few of the pages feel kind of .. crammy. But that\'s not a big thing, but I hope you\'ll take it into consideration as well.

Both of you did a really good job! I am looking forward to see your future battles :D

Agent Black: Your stuff man...takes my attention span for a ride. You got so much going on my eyes are all over the place. I know this character haves a theme park for a mentality and your panels, text, and images in your comic are designed to reflect the deep distorted abyss that is his mind, but please i ask for a little more organization. You try to fit too much in one panel. You don\'t give yourself any space for what you want people to read. I highly admire your character and I appreciate it if you kept me a fan. And try out some colors to let your readers know when he\'s seeing things. Good work though...and great effort.

Macabre: Now i\'m not into bondage, but i just might start looking into it cuz of this character. The belt thing...i\'m liking the belt thing. Keep it up. Don\'t let it be boring though. As far as the panels go clean, simple, and easy to follow. But a little too simple. I like the fight but try to change the mood every once and a while. Don\'t take it the wrong way but the battle was a constant joke. There was too much that left me wanting more. And you style is good...keep it.

All and all I personally also grade effort so my vote is gonna have to go to the black man.

*writhes around* Daaaaaaaaaaaw my head!  MY EYES!!!!  My eeeeeeyeyes....

Black:  FUCK man, WHAT is in that BRAIN of yours!?  It was so hectic and dark and twisted and cool and ALL OVER THE FUCKING PLACE!!!  Your style reminds me of a horrible love-child between cowboy bebop and johnny the homocidal maniac.  I love your creativity, and what I think you were trying to tell, but man, I could barely follow it, and things were just too chaotic for me to really get into the story.  Try and cut down on your pages and maybe decompress them a bit, \'cause shit son, you\'ve got skills.

Macabre:  Your style is *slick*.  I loved your inks, I loved your perspective and your humour, I really enjoyed this story.  It was different, but fun!  I don\'t have too many crits, besides that at certain points it was a little unclear too, but not too bad.  ...I\'m gonna start sounding like a monkey, \"I don\'t get it duuur.\"  ...anyway, nice job.

Wonderful work Monday. as much as i am obsessed with NooB i am obsessed with this. action is captured in such a effing wonderful way i just cant believe it. and the horror is just as good wen added with blood!

Nice style Soos, not a big fan of over abstraction wen it comes to forms but its great enough to come neck and neck with monday.

Great work both of u!!!!!

Mon, it\'s hard to get through the story, but it\'s worth it. Very expressive artwork and writing.That is good. And you\'re productive. Lots of pages. Very good.

Soo, you have some nice style. Work on your panels though. And try to be a little more creative next time. Still, pretty good. I liked it.

HOLY SHITS!! Epic battles on both sides, props to the two of you.

Monday: that has got to be one of the most disturbing fights I\'ve ever seen. I was seriously creeped out the entire time I was reading it. Things were a bit difficult to follow at the beginning, but I think it took on more shape and form towards the end. Anatomy might be something to look at some more, but still, beautiful stuff, just beautiful.

Soos: Just great man. You\'ve got wicked poses and great art skills. Not one of my favorite art styles, but you sure as hell know how to pull it off. Nothing gets my votes faster than rocking it in black and white.

I hope to see more fights from both of you in the future.

Hmm, both  promising first battles!  I had a tough time deciding on my vote here.

Agent Black:  Seriously a mindfuck all the way through, the gritty quality and various disturbing panels (in a good way) created quite the psychological impact on me.  However, half the time I was rather fuzzy as to what was going on, due to confusing panel placement and sometimes haphazard handwriting.  The angles and story were killer though, definitely made an impact on me.

Macabre:  This is what action poses are about!  The highly energetic lines really make the action come alive.  It was tough to make out what was happening in the small panels though, and in the end it wasn\'t as interesting as it could\'ve been since the battle basically turned into a contest of raw power.

In all I think both battles had some very serious style going on, just need to work on presentation a bit.

OH shit S00S your action choreography rocked my face off. I\'m amost decked that you played Agent black better than I could\'ve  expressed him in action. Poetry in motion my friend , I feel pretty sucktarded now that I didn\'t do your character the same justice. WE should fight again someday !

monday: page 13 appeared twice it seems.
anyhow, good action on both sides. macabre a bit more straightforward and monday with a pinch of demonic plottings.
ended up giving monday more points cause the story caught my interest.

will be looking forward to reading more bloody stories from both of you. rock on
