Once again my legendary lack of luck struck, and my laptop decided to kick the bucket, but I salvaged enough to make it readable.

Radji: Man, this would've been a killer comic to have seen completed. You're so good at grayscale, and with the main character being mime-inspired it would've fit perfectly. Killing off an entire swarm of bugs seems like it'd be a challenge, but I think you did a pretty good job of figuring out a really kickass way to do it. Doesn't matter how many bugs there are if they're all caught in an explosions! Also, I really liked the last panel where Marcelle steps on the final bug, it felt really cinematic, and was a v satisfying end.

Kubo: Hello??? This was terrifying??? Truly a masterful example of gradually building tension and unease; Marcelle's antics were such a good contrast and such a good way to showcase just how lacking in life the place was. I think the only thing that would've made it better is if the background color had changed a bit when Myrmidon revealed itself; instead of blue, using a red or a sickly green could've really pumped up the atmospheric mood to the next level.

Radji - Niiice pencils I love your action and gesture poses!

Kubo - I LOOOOOVED the premise, its so dark and soooo good! Want to see more of these guys!

Radji-Very bummed your compy when and lost the rest of your inks. Your style still shows through with the grittyness and violence!

Kubo- I enjoyed your story,abnd twist. My only input is go harder on the gritty grimeyness of the town and cafe. make it bleaker!

These were both really good stories!

Radji: Even though you didn't get to finish the comic, I could still get the jest of the story. Page 5 was the only one where I was a bit lost as to what was happening but I get that this is the rough and not really meant for everybody's eyes haha.

Kudo: That plot twist! I'm usually pretty good at expecting what's coming next, but you got me! I really dig the character and look forward to seeing what comes next with them. Art wise though, I felt you could have put more effort into the background instead of the blue-ish tint. Even just putting a background in a couple of panels instead of all of them would probably have been enough. But even then, still a good job!

RADJI - your black and grey are always so striking! This first page (especially the first four panels) are so pleasant to look at. I'm sorry you couldn't upload the version you wanted to. I can tell that the action scenes would have been awesome to look at.

Myrmidon is creepier than I envisionned. Very Salad Fingerey even, (the soup doesn't help hehehehe) the creepiness was seeping from every cracks.

Radji: I'm sorry about your computer but I'm glad you were still able to get it in. Even sketchy as it is, this is a great read. Everything  still reads clearly enough that I'm not taken out of it, except the swarm on page 4 and I can excuse that since a massive swarm of bugs isn't something that can really be sketched out.

Kubo: an interesting direction to take this character. I'll have to keep that in mind for round 2, potentially. Im glad you're taking full advantage of the unpredictable nature of such an amorphous character. The quality of your art and writing continues to be consistently quality.

Radji: Idiot girl has beaten the swarm! Sorry that you got rotten luck again. Shit is frustrating. Literally couldn't join this tourno because hand got injured at the last minute so I feel your pain man.

Kubo: This was awesome! The reveal was so cool and the way you drew Marcelles monster form was great and the lines on her gloves too~
