Eric: Looking back, it probably could have done without the romance thing at the end. This more of just a sketch up of what I wanted to do with the story overall. If I were to do more, this would probably be retconned out until later.

That being said, it would still happen. Someone recently asked me what message I was trying to send with my work and I realized I didn't know. I guess with this I was trying to get kids used to the idea that it doesn't matter if you're gay or straight or bi or whatever. They're just two imaginative little boys who just happen to like each other, no big deal.

Aside from that, glad you enjoyed it.

Anon: Thank you sir! I would very much like to do more, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

I really thought you had a very very nice set up here. Definitely a comic I could imagine seeing in one of those old Nickelodean Magazines. (Excluding the obvious stuff.)

The art style is very different than your usual stuff but it really comes across strong and absolutely fits the tone of the story. The colors are very bright and expressive and I would definitely like to see you try that in other comics you do. Definitely a far cry from the monochrome style you utilized for Wynn.

The story was a lot of fun. I really enjoyed the narrative for the most part, however, the ending's kind of twist into a sort of love story thing kind of left a sour taste in my mouth. But, that's more me than you. I think this is the kind of story that if it was to mean anything to me for their relationship, would need to have some story or 'issues' before that.

I really loved the colored lines here. Very fun choice that kept the story and art looking very lively. It really fit the tone of the story, however I think your line width was lacking in some parts, but I can't exactly put my finger on what exactly about this that bothers me about the lines.

All in all, this was a real fun comic. Definitely different from the very serious and very dour situations you regularly show at us and I hope to see more of these two again, because adventures in the backyard with them sounds very very cool.

Qyz: thanks! I actually tried to put the textures, but they just weren't working. Since the lines are coloured it made it a little hard to separate them from the background.

Angie: glad you liked it. I know what you mean about the length of it though. I tried to get rid of any unneeded pages and I probably went a bit too far. I feel like I either have to sacrifice art or story in favour of the other. Finding a middle ground is hard. =T

Your style and colors were a blast on this, I really enjoyed the story. I would have liked for this to have been slightly longer so we could have gotten a better feel for the characters, I feel like the story just happens way too fast so the ending didn't really give me much feeling. I do agree with Qyz that zooming out would have really helped your action be a bit more readable. I think this was an overall strong comic and I enjoyed it, just a few things to tweak here and there.

Heh, I really really enjoyed this! The style was gosh darn ADORABLE! And it was pretty good in pacing, too.

I think you need to zoom out in your panels. They get awfully claustrophobic.

Also, I miss your use of textures! I think it would look very nice on this comic!

Figured I would try for quality of art over story this time. I hope stuff didn't feel too crammed in. It was fun to make, even if the cheesy end made me cringe a little haha.

Will: Thanks. I hear what you're saying about the close ups. I'm just getting used to the pen tool and used stupidly thick line weights. Probably doesn't help the zoom effect.

Fetus Man: Glad you liked it!

Toast: haha It feels like getting a thumbs up from Caesar. Thank you, I'm glad you think so.

Cute story.  I really liked the style the colors were pleasant and the smoothness of the style was appealing.  My only complaint is that I felt like all the shots were just too close up.
