HATS- Taking a look at your backgrounds and rich environments for this battle was pure decadence. Honestly, i could stare at your backgrounds all ding dang day. Love love LOVE your meteor set up and the way you either intentionally or by accident tied Wizzie's space/mysticalness with the magic theme of the tourney. I'm seeing something of a trend in your recent battles where you have a great premise and a really infectious build up, but the pay off doesn't really carry the comic. While this first round was rad, the way it ends feels like we were jilted out of something that could've been more.

GREGLY-  Nice use of minimal colors and stylized elements. I totally laughed at Wizzie trying to hide her beer. We only get a snapshot of what's going on with the results shown on the last page and I wish there was more. Still, its an interesting hook to lure us into wanting to see more in round 2. I really like this style of comics you're doing. on top of the concept you came into the tourney with has made this one of my fav Gwen and Regi story arcs.

Hats: That's pretty cool you put a Harlow cameo on page 6, i didn't even notice it the first time i read this but was pleasantly surprised when i saw it. Your inks in this comic are really awesome and I like the use of tones. Only thing I i would say is I wasn't sure what happened on the final page and it didn't immediately click that Wizzie used her magic to save Gwen, maybe some residue magic on her when she was on the sign could have helped.  I really liked all the dialogue in this, each character felt pretty distinct with some funny dialogue.

Gregly: There's something really charming about your inking and cartooney style that I like,it's also pretty distinct. However there is something about the combinations that I don't like but I can't exactly say what unfortunately.  Also in terms of story I wasn't sure why Gwen would want cigarettes but the idea is pretty cute of her taking bribes.

William_Duel: I just have a question for Hats' comic, I recognize Jiko as you draw her, but who are the other two ladies Wizzie hangs out with?

Johnny Sweet and May Wu, who featured alongside Wizzie during Armageddon.

Hats: i am still in AWE that "fucking a radioactive fishboy" WAS THE ACTUAL DIALOGUE you never cease to amaze me XD though i will say as much as i love that bit its a tad unclear at first that Johnny is saying it, at the end of page two its so chaotic it gets a little hard to place where the word bubbles are coming from, then the payoff panels on three Johnny isnt in, actually i though DEUS was saying it for a Moment? Johnny's flying elbow drop onto Regi is probably my favorite panel LOL. I absolutely LOVE the art and writing in this- my only critique is it ends sort of abruptly, each time i read it i expected there to be another page with some kinds of epilogue or something. i LOVE your artstyle- your shapes, your expressions, your inks, how can i steal your power
GREGLY: NICE setting! you went all out with the cityscape! the perspectives in one and four are fantastic! I love seeing Gwen be just a little shit sometimes, taking that bribe from Wizzie lol. Theres some colouring here i like and some i dont, i enjoy the vivid colours you gave Gwen and Wizzie and the magic, but regi is probably a little TOO desaturated for a main character, and the background colours are too bland for all the work you put into the inks, maybe something with a little more hue than brown and gray would have helped to set the time a bit better? Writing is great as always, this is a really fun comic and I liked it!

Hats: yeah, this is top craftsmanship as usual! I CAN'T SAY ANYTHING MORE THAN THAT, IT'S JUST REALLY REALLY WELL MADE. you are continually being one of void's bar-setters!

Gregly: In addition to loving the humor as usual, I really admire all your background shots here. I struggle a lot with keeping a consistent look among my buildings, getting that balance between variety and unity, and you really hit it in the first panel, and your construction deets are top-notch. That said, this might be biased from coming directly off Hats' comic, but this feels like it starts slower than it needs to; at the very least, page 1 could be compressed to three panels without losing anything, so there's definite room for expanding the scope there or something. Iunno. It's still a good comic and I'd love to see where you're going with this storyline! Unfortunately, you know... : (

hats: top quality BW comics like I like them ! As always, a meteor is involved (WHEN IS IT NOT METEORS LOL) Wizzie is back to her punk attitude, yay

Gregly: HEh we had about the same idea magic stealing. I do limit my colors sometimes but the shades of green n brown are...nauseous?
