Physic - Love your inks! It\'s very expressive and dramatic. The twist at near the end of the comic was also cute. I only wish you could have finished it up, and agree that the black-white text was really, really hard to read.

Chamba - How are you- you drew two battles at the same time!?!? This is also super nice, even in just pencil. I like how the story fits into your previous battle, but am I the only one who doesn\'t understand what\'s going on  with the coin? (did the machine eat Syke\'s coin or does he just not have enough?) Regardless, nice job!

chamba nice work, li\'l rougher than your other stuff but I like, it has diff. atmosphere from your prevs work. nice 3 pages too, the story was finished as well (though i almost miss the ending cause it was a tad too subtle but I like it)

phys: cool entry, but I was expecting more actually, specially since the last time you showed me stuff... last page was kinna weak, I guess you ran out time .
haha also if you have to tackle every crits/have to explain things, doesn\'t mean the comic is not working well as visual medium to tell your story? the thing that bugs me most is how you use the type for their dialogues, it was distracting I find (\'white\' font instead of black font. sometimes it works, but in this case it was distracting since majority of your negative space is white, thus it sorta drowned into the page. Black fonts would work better)

also your paneling is a bit awkward, maybe because the lack of establishing shots. Like every panels feels like BAM a person BAM another person BAM and so on and so on. It feels kinda redundant and also cluttered cause there\'s some awkward \'breaking out\' the panels that kinda feels weird, (especially your word balloons) since your space between panels are so thin, it just feels awkward to see  the baloons overlaps the other panels without any meaning and it sorta disturbs the overall flow of reading experience.

(...This is a tricky thing to crit since there are MANY ways to tackle paneling, depends on the choice of style and whatever, but all I can say without making me look like a total douchebag is that your current way probably doesn\'t fit yours. This could be my own opinion though, but that\'s what I think)

basically I think your problem lies on the layouting in general. There\'s no main focus in each pages, everything feels as if they\'re as important, thus there\'s no -impact- in any of the action scenes. Mind, your drawings are GOOD, but they\'re good  on their own. When you draw them as comics, it feels as if it loses the impact. And from what I\'ve seen so far (both your battles and the stuffs you showed me on PM), it\'s really about your layout and compositioning skill. Just remember, even if it looks/feel cool, doesn\'t mean it\'s going to work.

take everything with grain of salt, k.

Chamba wins this one for me again. He pulled together a solid and conclusive story within his three pages. It might not have been the same quality as his nex fight, and he maybe not have had as much time to spend on it. Honestly I\'m more interested in seeing the linework over the colors anyway.

Physic, it looks like you bit off more than you could chew. Your panel layouts leave much to be desired, and your dialogue hits me as being super cheesy. I cannot forgive the lack of BACKGROUNDS either!!!! Even after reading the intro for your story, it still left me uninterested. Still an okay entry, but I was expecting more I guess? You have the ability to do better.

I see your point, but the other part focuses more on Chun, and would require like 7 pages on its own, i simply didnt have time to do a 7 page battle at this time. Maybe in BB i will give the rest, i can understand if ya dont like that idea, buuut welp thats the path i chose to take

Not as much heat as I expected from both contenders, but some cool stuff was in this fight.

Physic: I\'m sorry dude, but I\'m with Wei on this, you should of Drawn that part you wanted to put in instead of explain it in the comments box, because as far as we know, we\'ve just hopped into the middle of a fight that we know nothing about, we don\'t know where Ninedays is at, and we do not know the identity of the woman they\'re fighting! Artwise I expected better from ya, you\'re good at human anatomy and know your stuff, but you had plenty of time to get something out that would of just blown us away, including that begining you planned.

Chamba: It\'s not as sharp looking as your past few fights in the SDT mang... but still you manage to do a decent comic that reads pretty well. The penciled quality was pretty nice and I love how you characturize your characters in this style. I gotta see the one with Next to see what you were planning though, seems kinda strange that you did that. But vote goes to you dude.

Ok, i was gonna do a preface page, but i didnt have time, so for those who give a damn Ill put it here.
We join nine in the midst of a battle with a former fellow government operative who now hunts him due to him betraying thier team sent to hunt/kill/capture his old friend Jah Basil.
Having seperated from his friend Chun to find information about Jah\'s disappearance, he became embroled in a long battle that rages even now.

That said there may be a prequel to this in BB form explaining how Chun met Syke. asss well as some more explanatory BBs, but thats for the few of you who give a damn about a lackluster story heh.
Anyhow that said enjoy, or dont, it was fun.
