Aaaaaalllrighty then! Last page of the first part of This City Is Out To Get Us. What this means, is that from now on I'll start posting steadily once a week on Fridays.

As always, thanks for reading, I'll see you on Friday, and have a wonderful day!

Slow pace but I like it. I saw this panel first so I thought (initially) this gets a lot more painterly as it goes along. After reading it I think it isn't as sharp difference as I initially saw it. JUst that the 'curtain fall' on this last page of part one is so painterly LoL.

@Bleach and Cloth: Ah, thanks for the feedback! I really appreciate it. Yeah, the pace is kinda slow for a few reasons, mostly my own preference for kinda slow comics and the fact that I have quite a bare-bones story, so there's not too much going on.
The painterly elements are kinda limited purely due to time constraints, the pages would take way too much time if I'd fully paint them all, as much as I'd like doing that. Maybe one day, but for now I'm way too busy with school.
But yeah, thanks for the feedback, it's always nice to hear what people think of my comic. And I'm glad you liked the comic, too! C:

@HarpoPolo: You are welcome. Both the reasons for slow pace you stated I think are good ones. However, I think slow pace stories lend themselves to appreciating the visuals more regardless of storytelling medium. So it all balances out ;)

Sometimes working with time constraints, as well as technical limitations is a good thing. It is easy to overwork characters and visuals, put too much of the writer and not enough of the characters into things. My more serious project I am starting on is based on the same characters in my veryyy casual comic strip. While the later doesn't push me much, in that I am not doing the most visual and literary finest I can produce, it does push me in that I have to give into the flow limited space (2 panel strips per strip), limited tools for execution (just laptop touch mouse pad), and time. In other words I have to deal with limitations just like in the real world. I feel if I have had allowed myself to draw and write the characters however I wanted from the get go, they wouldn't be as quirky as I gotten to know em and be more moody little shits I made them. In other words, working with time and tool restraints make your characters be more like living things that push and rebel against you, rather than just playthings of their creators all the time.
