Hey all,

If you've got a minute to spare I'd appreciate it if you checked out my strip, and lemme know what you think!

Thanks!

Needless to say, particular beliefs are needed to enjoy a few of those gags (pro-creation, anti-moral relativism) but I enjoyed the ones that didn't require religious/Christian/fundamentalist goggles: the guy resisting the twitter/facebook temptations, the guy obsessed with the phone. I would advise you to mention this comic on some atheist forums to boost traffic and generate comments.

I'll keep reading because it's interesting and educational to see opinions expressed that I don't necessarily agree with...and the artwork is very crisp and nice.

I'm... not sure I would recommend that, haha. If he's looking for some contradictory discussion he could, but I think it might end up looking like a YouTube video's comment section.

I really like your art style and the design of your characters, and like mcmasters, my favorites were the strips that weren't focusing on a religious aspect. But even the ones that I disagree with, I could still see where the joke was and enjoy them. I also really like the title, and the explanation you included on it.

I guess I'll say I'm not your target audience, but you have a lot of talent here and I can see you have a pretty good idea of what you're doing, so I hope you do well.

It will create a nuke blast of flame war, but it beats being ignored!

"Needless to say, particular beliefs are needed to enjoy a few of those gags (pro-creation, anti-moral relativism) but I enjoyed the ones that didn't require religious/Christian/fundamentalist goggles..."

And here are the tags- religious, Christian, fundamentalist. Sigh.

That was one of the reasons for me doing this strip- I'm just a person with sincere, heart-felt beliefs just like everyone else. And I wanted to express them... just like everyone else.

All Webcomic artists come from a certain view- do you think everyone needs certain goggles to enjoy any strip? I don't. What I'm hoping to convey are more universal feelings- fear, frustration, intellectual curiosity, faith, joy, boredom, etc. I think on some level we ALL can relate.

I'm not looking for arguments, and I'm not looking to offend. I'm just looking to share my thoughts.

"I'll keep reading because it's interesting and educational to see opinions expressed that I don't necessarily agree with..."

I couldn't ask for anything more! THANK YOU!

I REALLY do appreciate your comments, folks. (Hoping for more!)

Not "any" strip, I said a few. No offense meant, I said I enjoyed the rest! Some topics are more "hot-button" than others, that's just the way it is whichever side of the fence you're on.

Good-lookin' comic, impressed by the art quality, though I can't shake the thought I'm watching aliens rather than humans. Smile

My humor-o-meter started working with the internet porn strip, and kept ticking along after that.

Your color tones are very soft and relaxing. Kind of like fluorescent lighting in the most alluring way possible.

I feel I would appreciate this a whole lot more if I shared your beliefs. You're skilled enough at pacing, anatomy and style to be able to do reach me if I was included in your target audience

The art style is really interesting! It does a great job of drawing you in, while displaying a sense of emotion. The comics concerning social media and cell phones were particularly funny.
Like a few other people mentioned, I was immediately turned off by the religious aspect of some of them. It's cool if that's your target audience and everything, but it made someone like me click the "next comic button" way too fast.
However, there have been a number of great comics and shows that display comedy and stories while having hints of religion. So striking a balance shouldn't be too hard to find. Cool
