This was such a delight to read! Absolutely one of my fav comics from these characters. The comedy was top-notch and the character interactions felt so natural! I'm eager to see these 3 interacting in the future again!

This was an amusing story and I liked how it gradually built up the fun with each page.

As someone who slams down a mug of coffee to go to bed I appreciate Celif’s sleep aid.

Thanks a lot for the comment and critique/suggestions Don! I'll personally apply some of them in my future comics!

Appreciate a lot the time you took to write this!

Really fun story, and thank you so much for the cameo! I've been really curious ever since the setup of this match how this would go, and certainly y'all did not disappoint. This was entertaining from beginning to end, and I would love to see more shenanigans of this trio in the future. I already said this on Discord, but one of my favorite jokes in this comic was how Vidia's powers were stifled by Celifs drug intake. As funny as it was, it also felt extremely smart in terms of a potential flaw in her powers. The awkwardness of the defenders meeting the trio, Mob and Rantu insulting each other whilst the style changes to emphasize how bad they both physically look, all of these comedic punches were great.

Any critique I could give really only focuses on the visual aspects of the comic, and even then my critiques are more or less just suggestions. I would have loved to seen more dynamic use of the camera, yet at the same time this really wasn't a story that would have required that. But after a second read, I couldn't help but notice how characters were in the foreground, centered, and pretty close to a supposed 'camera'-- To the point that zoomouts to the environment weren't too present. This isn't to say that your comic was without it entirely, but moreso to say that some panels felt as though the characters were cramped into it. Experiment! Birds eye views, worms eye views, etc. etc., the world is your oyster in that sense! Consider what objects are not only /behind/ your characters, but what surrounds them, or could be very well next to them-- Things present int he environment beyond objects that they are clearly meant to interact with.

I would also suggest to learn how you can use half-toning to your advantage. Admittedly, the dot overlay here does not have much style presence akin to, lets say, using a gradient for filling negative space, using spotblacks to keep a characters linework/silhouette unique against other subjects, or including a greyscale to establish a 'limited palette' (And the FG/MG/BG). Because it's splayed over both characters, backgrounds, and greyscale without change in intensity or pattern-- It actually /flattens/ the overall visual. I would strongly recommend looking into how halftones are used in manga to see how its balanced!

But please, size of this comment aside, please know these are just suggestions! And I have alot to say because y'all gave me alot to think about-- I want to appreciate this comic not just as a reader, but also give it the critique y'all deserved for the hard work you put in. Even though the main, plot A of this comic was definitely enjoyable on its own, I love the plot B, those implications of personal character journeys that y'all included! So many questions, such as what's up with Mob's powers, how close are we to seeing the full form of whatever it is that has been disturbing him? Who is Madam Dolores, and how extreme is the debt that Celif owes to them, what was that favor he asked of her? What happened to Rantu, what DID happen to his nose HM?????

Once again, thanks for the comic and the cameo!! Looking forward to what you three do next!
