Blinkspeed: Hey, awesome to see you back to fighting again! All this action was pretty daring and great to see. I liked how you handled it and I think you did pretty well for yourself here.

I wasn't a fan of your guys being empty white with the line art. I think you should have had some kind of gray there instead to fill it out. Your anatomy also needs some work, it's kind of rough and generalized. Your hands have fingers are the same distance and size, which is wrong, your fingers are different sizes. Try drawing this out to get your practice in.

The perspective on the hat also feels very much like you're doing it without knowing how it's supposed to go, such as page 1's close up of Nevermore.

You need to give us some backgrounds! Floating in the gray void (AHHH!! TODAY'S SECRET WORD!!) isn't a good backdrop for a battle! We only got 2 images of buildings and you're fully capable of doing it, so don't cheat your reader! I hope to see you improve these in the future.

This was a real step up I felt compared to your first comic and it's a good indicator of where you're at right now. I think you're going to do very well on your next comic too, and I can't wait to see it.

BrainBaists: Wow, this was a marvelous comic. Thanks for the name-drop. I'll have to remember I always have a room at the RoflQu Apartments.

I love your inks. It makes me think of an R. Crumb-lite. A ton of cross-hatching and it all looks really good to me. You utilize a ton of really nice blacks and your grays really bring out the best of your work. However, as it dragged on, I felt some of your line quality and line width's suffered a bit, probably due to time. However, it didn't detract all that much.

You have fantastic background shots going on, all kinds of stuff and it's really refreshing to see a new person jump right at doing a bunch of good building shots from all over.

Your action in this comic was really fantastic. The car crash on Page 4 is amazing and I knew what was coming and I was still really impressed at how you did it. The car feels a little scrunched into the page, but it's still a really daring thing to draw and try. I loved your metal on metal sparks on page 9 and that entire sequence of fighting was an absolute treat to read, too.

I understand what you meant now when you said this comic was a companion/same battle as the original now and I think this unintentional extension for you was a great thing, since this story is much stronger after seeing your other battle first, I believe. It really explains why we saw Dennis' friend in the first battle all the way throughout it.

I think you need to work on your perspective, specifically top down shots. This and the last battle were kind of iffy with them. However, I admit that these shots are very hard and you handled yourself very well with it.

I am absolutely enthralled with your art and characters, you've got some serious potential and I can not wait to see where you're going to take this next. Great job.

Nice action sequences from both entries. BrainBaists pulled it off better with slower/deliberate pacing and thought out camera shots.

I am at a loss for words with both of these comics. Blink the interactions between the 2 characters and the way you used Maansik was wonderful. Brain as I expected the scenery and backgrounds were stunning and the overall feel for everything was superb. the reference to your last battle was quite a brilliant touch as well

Blinkspeed: Your dialogue is great. some lines are maybe a little cliche. Your stuff would be so much more awesome is you would ink it. Great job!

BrainBaists: poses are funky. but the interconecting of the last battle... AWESOME.

...I'm at a loss for words. Although it's pretty obvious that my chances of winning are slim.
I was blown away by this comic! You got Nevy down perfectly and the story itself was brilliant. Wish I could vote, I'd give you perfect score.
