This is better than anything I've seen from you yet! You did a great job creating atmosphere here, and the colors you picked were perfect for each scene. I hate this guy and can't wait to see more of him! XD

Really enjoyable, I love the ton of this comic and the muddy, grungy use of colour. Colbitzer's interesting, i'm excited to see a completely unhinged character run riot.

Overal this was a really solid comic, great job!

Now on to my rather pedantic and nitpicky crit. Just some stuff to consider.

-I think the furry character should have been more noticeable in that first page, he ends up being quite a big part of this story, but he's really easy to miss at the start. Really hammering in that there's now an anthro on the police force would have made the ending more impactful.
-I also personally would have had the van hit a deer or hog, basically something visually more distinct from the anthro character. It would stop things from visually getting muddled. Because the wolf anthro is kinda easy to miss on that first page, I could totally see a reader thinking Colbitzer is hallucinating that the wolf is a police officer or something at the end. xD
- Colbitzer's face has already been shown by the time we get to the last page, so I wasn't sure why you decided to suddenly chose to hide it. Personally I would have liked to have seen his expression during such an intense scene.

I love limited color and I love these heavy inks. I was a little confused what happened to the guys in the back and why Colbitzer is the only one is fine or how he got the card, but this is still an awesome grusome comic. Great job on the leap to digital.

Very nice spooky grungy ambience with the darks. Poor lone wolf just looking for a pal, too bad that guard wolf got eyeballed. Can't wait to see where this vigilante heads next

damn dude i know youre used to traditionals but your digital art is SICK. This is some good old fashioned grit and gore, a welcome sight! I admit it took me two reads to get- since we never get a very clear look at anyone's face, I didn't immediately recognize which one was Colbitzer and got all turned around. But I got it on the second pass so its probably on me. LOVE the pale blues and reds and the whole vibe. Excited for more!

:O Oh my. This is... tactile, moody, an gruesome. It has an almost analog/nostalgic feel to it that's different from your other comics (the use of textures without skewing them does throw this factor off though). I'm... still left pretty confused. The third panel on page 4 for a while confused me, because I thought Colbitzer was looming over the wolf man, who I thought was the one escaping from the police wagon at first, because the visual continuity was a little messy there.

All the same, I'm on the edge of my seat, eating my popcorn.

Yikes!  The brutality!  This is going to be fun to see where this guy goes next.

My BOY!! Always glad to see more comics from you. The move to completely digital has already done wonders to your spot blacks, your palette and overall comic clarity. That second page shot of the wolf is totally badass! Can't wait to see what you do with this tough fucker!

The grittyness and violence are really well done!
This is going to be an entertaining character to hate.
Cant wait to see more!

Finally! This intro came out great, man! I too dig the color work here, and the dialog gives the right amount of backstory to who Colbitzer is. Can’t wait to see his first battle, and looking forward to fighting him myself!

I just want to make note that this is my first ever fully digital comic. I recently transitioned from traditional to digital and I’m pretty proud of this. So I hope y’all hate this character but enjoy the comic. Fight me, cowards

I already love that pile of human trash

Good behavior MY ASS.

Gotta say, this is a well made intro comic for someone like Colbitzer. I really like the washed color palette, looks almost watercolor-y, and I really dig the inking style that melds into the darker shadows. Gave a good clear indication on what kinda person he is without showing too much directly, and leaves it up to mystery on how he was indicted in the first place. I may have a few guesses, big thonk.

Grats on getting him in, looking forward to seeing more, and my Dino-guy kicking his ass >:D
