Snager - Your watercolors/traditional style is very cute and appealing! May I suggest that you try other fonts too.  The Arial (?) font doesn't quite fit the comic format and feels out of place. There are several free comic font resources that you can find all over the internet that you can play around with. I love how you drew that butterfly and Pinecone is super cute in your style.

Ramen - Congrats on your first battle. This is such a cute comics too and Pinecone is absolutely adorable. The blues and greens are very relaxing and definitely enhanced the calming mood of your comic. Maybe add pinks, yellows and purples next time to add some whimsy!

Gosh, what an adorable battle, bravo to both of you.

Snager- This comic was very cute!
You really captured the pre-teen Neopets addiction, Pinecone was sickeningly adorable here, I love all her little mannerisms and expressions- this really was a fun, creative way to incorporate here into the NDA setting. I don't have much for you in terms of crit, maybe look into different digital fonts. I think there are better more comic-friendly options. But yeah, this was adorable, great job!

Ramen- Having Ada be transported into a magical realm via a book was a really cute, whimsical idea. Don't stress about the lack of shading, Your Linework had a lot of nice-looking marks so the flat colouring looked intentional to me. This felt like a finished comic.
For future comics, it would be interesting to see you play around with page layouts more. I'd actually recommend really paying close attention to paneling & the use of space next time you're reading comics. See if you can get some inspiration.
It's a good thing to be mindful of & can instantly make your pages more visually interesting- PLUS, it can add more impact to certain scenes.
Just a quick example- Ada entering a magical realm couldn't packed an extra punch for your readers if you'd dedicated a big panel (maybe even a whole page!) To her first arriving and seeing Pinecone.

Both battles where fully of color and whimsy. I love the light-hearted nature of these two comics. Both had ingenious ways of character interaction and plot.

 Can't wait to see what is next for PineCone and Ada Dimitr!

Ramen - What a great first battle! Very cute. I really like how Pinecone’s mouthparts work, they remind me a bit of a snail’s but able to grasp things, and I find them very endearing.

snager - This was so fucking clever. Like... I’d never have thought of this in a million years. Really creative! Your gestures and expressions are always super fun too, and I love details you added like running up the stairs on all fours that really sell this as kid Ada.
