ARRRi- I really enjoyed your side, you have solid line and coloring abilities and very clear environments/backgrounds. What I liked most was your dialogue and character interaction. The dialogue was believable, their relationship really drew me in and made me curious about their backstories. Even though I haven't read the beyond battles, I didn't feel horribly confused about what was going on. crits are, backgrounds and especially the car could still be punched out better. Also play with sound effects more, they get lost when you black them out.

AMAloo-  Aahahah! You have a fun, cute style, if still a little messy. Clear to read and a cute, energetic story, I like what you're doing with panel variation and the color really ties things together.  crits are, the thick black panel boarders and word bubble outlines is really distracting. Your environments and perspectives make no sense, but it still works because the color.

Both of these were sweet reads!!

Goddamn this was the best comic in a long time, Duane comics and Penelope comics are always worth the wait. The story on this was fantastic, I loved that the overall plot went from life-threatening danger to moronic heists. Wanton senselessness all up in a bitch makes for a great read. Good job guys.

This totally felt like a major event comic. I've been eagerly awaiting this match-up, and you two did not disappoint. I particuarly felt you both put a lot of thought and effort into the connected story. Sometimes, 2-part comics don't really flow so well, but yours works. Good job, both of you.

Just sort of in response to amazingdavid's thing. I wouldn't say its completely out of character, if you've ever been around a meth head you would agree with me. Couple years back there was this guy at my school, a hardcore tweaker, he was a quiet guy and rather small and reclusive. One day this guy like twice his size, and not just tall this guy was a big dude, but anyway he was in his face and all of a sudden the kid just decks the guy across the face and kept slugging the guy until some people, myself included pulled him off of the guy. He had never reacted violently before and nothing was really done to send him that far over the edge. Moral of the story, meth users can be quite unpredictable.

i really liked both comics,

I loved your use of Watercolor here Amaloo, and i really liked the way you laid out and blended you panels on page 5, there wasn't much direction needed. Great colors and fun to read.

you've always had a great foundation to your work. your colors and design where great here.

man these were good..

Excellent writing both of you, the conversations felt natural and the characters were emotive. The contrast in the writing styles (or should I say the delivery of the writing) made for two unique comics that told a complete story. I'm glad the catharsis doesn't seem hackneyed.  Duane feels like he is actually moving closer to breakdown.  The only thing with the writing that bugged me was Duane's line in Ari's where he turns into this momentary badass against the hoes. I don't think it's inconsistent with his character it just seems odd for anyone even drug addicts when threatened with a knife so closely would choose to talk shit.

Ari - nice go of it. Your anatomy is getting better but overall I still think you faces are still long and flat (specifically Duane Pen looks fine). keep working on those, or I guess....male faces. I'd also suggest working on things like cars and other structural objects.  The details of the city seemed to get swallowed in your coloring..I'd punch those up a bit more.  The coloring is well done as usual, but ilke I said before the structure underneath still needs work.  Can't put lipstick on a pig and call it prom queen...if you know what I mean. Your underlying drawing is the most important part of the whole process. Make sure that is tight and anatomically correct before you are throwin in those colors.  It might be worth doing some comics without color or tones to see how well your structure and characterizations hold up just as line. Good work I rated you up on quality

Amaloo - I loved this. This is your tightest comic you've done yet.  The BB you posted was kind of a mindfuck of randomness and this seemed to work as a way to control all of that and give it relevance.  I think I'm finally getting your style and I love it. The traditional approach is respectable, although I think your color is all over the place. limited palette might help with that, perhaps it's supposed to be acrid...not sure. Anywho there is a lot of personality that comes through in your style and is an excellent contrast to Ari's more subdued clean approach. I laughed a lot at your comic. Good work I voted you up on creativity and entertainment.
