Ramen: I like the way you drew Kurdis! The style changes on each page were really cool, and I like that the style got more anime on page 2 when Kurdis gets briefly captured. Great colors too!

Snager: I love your sense of humor, the was you have Kurdis interact with the environment is so funny. I also really appreciate you visualizing smell and having Isaac create this whole fantasy in his head about who the coat belonged to. I love the rapidfire humor and how you set the each panel around the mood of the moment. Excellent stuff!

Ramen: ShowHide
Your comics are always so cute πŸ₯Ί I love how Kurdis just wanted to show Issac a fun time after everything he's been through. Throwing in all those cameos of snager's other characters (as well as Pinecone!!!) was really sweet too. I hope we get more Issac after the tournament is over, because we have a lot of mysteries left surrounding this boy πŸ‘€

This was really cute! I like how you portrayed the different smells that come from Kurdis' clothes, and think it's interesting that Issac assumed he was a beautiful lady. Love that he just didn't even consider he could be wrong, and Kurdis was too timid to argue. At least he got an iconic outfit out of it! Also thanks for the cameo! 😊

Ramen: you have some really fun colors here! And some good shots with good angles! And I enjoy the idea of a skate park date hehe

Snager: this was a super good story! And weirdly sweet. Normally I'm not a fan of Misunderstanding Plots, but this was just kind of precious. I like how you depicted the aroma Issac detected from Kurdis--small detail but it really got the point across. I will say, though, I'm not sure how I feel about the ending? I think you had a solid story even without that last page, and I'm not sure it really adds much? I think you were probably going for, like, paying homage to your previous opponents, but. Idk. You have such a distinct sense of humor that repurposing someone else's punchlines feels incongruous?
Thats not to say it wasn't funny tho--hence my mixed feelings lol

Ramnen You've been improving a bunch since first coming in! You made it through sdt and didn't falter! Awesome job!

Snager loved the cameo of all the invitationals at the beginning, very nice touch with the beetles ref at the end!
I too am a fan of big bad beetle borgs

Ramen as I told you in the vc, kudos for finishing your first tourney, and how you keep growing as a comic artist, a recall a few months ago you asking how does one make comics and now look at you, you took to it like a fish to water, perfectly, keep up the progress my friend.

Snagger: this was an enjoyable funny tale of mistaken identity and the final suit of a bright pink sgt.pepper Lonely hearts band, captures some of the lonely hearts that this speed date tourney left many of it's voiders, fun stuff, funny and charming, a good Kurdis comic to add to his archive.

well, ramen, that wasn't the story  i imagined you'd give me, but it sure is what I got XD
Tell Issac not to give up: i'm sure there's another person out there who accepts him as he is: human heart consumption and all.
i hope you liked the story I did and that you like the way i portrayed Issac. I was inspired by the picrew doll i made of him. i made up this whole vague yet elaborate backstory about him and his homeworld. sort of steam punk disney atlantis world, where he was a grad student at the university , working as a chemist, when he blew up his own eyes? and lost his scholarship or something. idk.

Good job Ramenbean! Each new comic you draw I see the progress in storytelling, keep up the good work.

Cool watercolors Snager.

Ramen: page 3 cracks me up 🀣

Snager: this was so adorable!! Poor kurdis, always striking out. I feel like he's getting numb to it. Fantastic watercolors as always, just gorgeous,  and the faces are so expressive!!
