I haven't read any online content this closely (I'm not sure what that says about me) in quite a while. You two are boiling over with talent (just as this blog is now boiling over with my brown-nosing).

There are some well-done figures in this issue -- the guy saying "The Conniptins always follow their king" on page 4 is the best -- but I'm really not into K'Cor's beard, and most of the arms & wrists of his human antagonists in the second half look wrong.

The figure drawing seems a lot less awkward and Dave's inking has some stylish moments. I am grateful for the continued storytelling analysis as well. It definitely seems like Dave is suddenly aware of verso and recto as an additional storytelling "unit" at this point, which I think is the "purpose" of the symmetrical design. Anyway, keep em coming. More than the last issue, this is the one for me that has a big jump in art. The figure drawing seems a lot less awkward and Dave’s inking has some stylish moments.
