This is a great turning point in Greece and Xia's relationship, and from the looks of things it's going to set up an interesting next step for Greece's character development. The art and story are both great and I hope we get to see more!

First off, I loved the setting of this comic. The ice palace looked really cool and cast lovely blue hues over everything, which I think set up the tone for what would happen quite well. I also liked that Xia had a moment where she did let the outing sway her in Greece’s favour, even telling him her name before she ultimately decides to walk away. It adds some nice conflict and definitely feels realistic.

I do agree with Jade about the speech bubbles; apart from the off centre text, a lot of the bubbles also weren’t warped and were still the original ellipse shape. I also wondered why the thing that made Xia snap to the crowd was the Valkyries being called a superhero group, which seems fairly minor in comparison to a Queen possibly dating a literal terrorist. Overall though, great comic and excited to see what happens next! I also thought Greece saying he’d change for Xia was kinda sweet, like yes it’s bad from her point of view but I think it shows he’s trying at least? It’ll be interesting to see which side you guys lean more to in the future.

I'm not gonna lie, I went into this thinking this was going to be a shoehorned 'we ship it and we're gonna have a convoluted montage on how they fall in love despite everything's that's happened" but you guys no only pulled out the rug from underneath, but took this in a compelling direction. Their individual lives and actions have culminated in being obstacles to something they may both want and that's neat. I rather enjoyed this was left on an unrequited note- it really juxtaposed against the festive background of the festival they were at.

I definitely wondered if Greece's terrorism, womanizing and Xia's whole DEAL was going to factor and I think this blow up argument encapsulated it all pretty well. I especially dug the clever use of cover by using her flames to steam the snow. I think snager has a point that Greece piling this 'I'll only be better if we're together' on Xia's shoulders IS sucky, but I mean, he's a swarmy wrestler who gained notoriety by being the sole survivor of a death tournament. I don't think he's meant to be the model boyfriend, much less individual. And if nothing else, Xia see's that, which is why she walked away. I think this leaves alotta things open for improvement, or downward spiral. Whether we see progress or ten steps backwards, I'm personally looking forward to it

We were *this* close to handholding then the fuzz had to show up.

Really excited to see these two's relationship advance more in comics after so long.  
Can't wait to see what's next for them.

Edit:  guess the bachelor party collab is postponed

edit 2: it's kind of fucked up for Greece to put the onus of his self improvement on the shoulders of a romantic interest. i get what he's saying but that's just so real-world toxic.

When the shipping hits the road 😔

This was such a good comic! I always love to see a story go from lighthearted to serious like this. Our characters are all flawed, and when you have a character like Greece who has done so much harm but also seems to want to be a better person, it's really meaningful to see his actions come back to bite him. I look forward to where that goes from here!

Docked a point in quality for the speech bubbles. I think there needs to be more space between the edge of the text and the edge of the bubble, the line width could do with being a bit thicker to match Shen's inks, and in one or two places the text was off-center. On a more positive note, I'm not usually a fan of people using a different font for each character, but I love how the font you've used for Greece reflects the fact that his voice is all messed up now. It's so hard to communicate the quality of sounds in a visual medium like comics, so being able to nail that like this is 😩👌

So hyped for more from both of you! KICK ASS IN VCUP SHEN!!!

Such a great comic to wake up to! Shen and Skulls you make a great team . The art is so beautiful, the colors vibrant and the characters are very relatable. Superb writing. I gotta say that Greece's scraggly font was a very clever way to portray his rough voice as a result of that battle with Mammon.

I love how you two tackled the consequences of whatever transpired in Xia and Greece's life individually before this reunion. Ughh I wanted them to kiss but I guess I gotta wait longer!

Been waiting on this comic for awhile and I can definitely say totally worth it!

If this is the wedding comic, they better get married in the middle of a ring, Wrestling tradition dictates it so.
