  1. That was fantastic. Thanks for taking the time to respond to topic requests (and that totally answered my question) and for doing the examples and links below so I could see what you meant. I never thought about the 'cluttered' issue or the color palette as distractions, but now that you brought that out, I think it's why I was only 'meh' about a few graphic novels I tried while others amazed me.
    The cat and wasp were great props. LOL


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
