Read through the whole thing finally - you got a really cool thing going here. The pages with the black and white backgrounds in nature are my fav and though there are only two characters the world of the comic feels full because of how you use their dialog and stories to get a sense of their inner life. I also appreciate how careful you are with content warnings and how you frame drug use - not moralizing/ not glorifying just as one of those things. p fuckin cool.

Dunno if you read this comic or if you care for recommendations but there is another webcomic it reminds me of (in tone and vibez (and I guess some content overlap) not in execution) that is about a suicide roadtrip that I think might be up your alley (but full disclosure - it's really heavy and there is some non sexualized nudity of a non human person - if that's a deal breaker - totally get it - wanted to give the heads up just in case.) Drop-out I got nothing to do with the production of the comic btw, I just think it's dope

Thank you! Yeah, I've had a great time with the backgrounds, there's a lot of love put into them whether they're pleasant like the nature ones or...yknow the building that Darby visits. I'm glad the world feels full. There's a lot to explore with these two.

When it comes to content warnings I'm always a little nervous about putting them up. I dislike the idea of spoiling things or revealing certain details with supplementary text and not the story itself. But at this point I think the execution is far enough out there that readers will still be able to come up with their own conclusions. It follows&I think the term is, "dead dove". These are days in their lives and that's all. As much as the artist's own biases inevitably creep in I hope it's unintrusive.

Thanks for the rec! I'll give that a read when I've got the time. It sounds like something I'd enjoy.

Yeah that’s why I think I’ve always made shitty ones. I also struggle with not wanting to misrepresent the comic either - like technically some shit would pop up, but long lists tend to make comics look edgy~ even when it’s brief mentions. It’s complicated cause it’s also like I don’t want to traumatize somebody for the sake of getting eyes on a comic either idk lol
