This is a fantastic intro! I've been looking forward to seeing this one.

I really like that the whole thing is almost entirely gray tones, it really helped it feel more dramatic and aaawesome. Great job with that!
I also feel the need to say I just love this guy's design, that armor is wicked cool.

Looking nice Pyras~  Excellent detail work and shading, and of course the "splash" of red does a lot for the design.
The city detailing, with the glowing lights, is a brilliant effect, but the bits of off perspective within the oddly angled shots do throw it off a bit. (though the head of shots work amazing). Cities are a constant pain in the butt with how much work they are and how easy it is to mess up a perspective with one off lined floor.

If you have the time, try instead playing up how distorted the buildings can be once or twice. Just to see if you can make them look as warped and evil as the people who own them, hehe. At least in his eyes.

Well color me intrigued! You really rocked this one dude! I'm reserving *~true judgement~* on the character because I really wanna see where he goes. Does he just search out the corrupt? Or does he kill everyone above a certain paygrade? One is tried-and-true and leaves room for personal growth and flavor. The other is a fresher idea with a lot of moral grays, but might lean too out-there for character development.

I don't really even have much to knock on the art! You really whipped it out when it came to your cityscapes, and I'll always super-appreciate that. And you gave Revu the level of detail needed to really sell the tone of the piece. Save for a few wonky street-shots, I'd say this is pretty fantastic!

Duuuude this is so absolutely gorgeous! The rendering of the city on the second page, the panel composition, the grayscale, it is amazing!

the rendering on the comic was beautiful and the character seems joyfully grim and dower in a very unironic sense; though it will be intresting to see how such a serious character will handle the absurdity of Void city itself. I think the comic looks stunning and some of the best rendering Ive seen from your comics and the black and white lends to the tone of the comic. I felt the comic artistically stayed in a mid-key in some places it would have benefited from a sharper contrast between the lights and the darks while the blacks could have been pushed a little more to really make him pop.

VOID need more wingboys. I approve.

I can't believe Dr. Fabulous is dead.

And just when he got back from Mexico!

Love this. Great range of tones between black and white, and use of those tones to evoke the intimidating nature of the character's motivations.

Ah, shoot me right in the face, I wanna fight this sexy owl man. I always love seeing the different ways that people draw wings, just because everyone tends to have a very different approach to it-- let's have a battle sometime, winged combat would be a nightma-- a blast to draw!
