                Really cool work and makes me wonder why more people don't do stuff like this, like Red VS Blue or that really short lived one for ultima 7.  I started off being a little unsure about it starting the same as the game, but you seem to be doing your own thing with it so I'm going to make sure to come back and check on it.
 
 The fight was cool, I hope you find a way to transition the blur effects should you ink it, I always fear they don't meld the same as with pencil.  It was well paced, though the whole thing seems to go faster than 29 pages might indicate.  The sex for instance goes on longer than you'd see in most comics, but I'm certainly not going to complain.  This is the net and A. you should be able to pace things to your liking, B. I imagine it'll be a footnote to the possible violence to come, and C. because let's face it, you can't have too much happy slappin.
 
 The art is good as usual, your smoky shading style gives it a weird atmosphere, like the smog of California is seeping through the walls.  In the two vampire pieces I did I blasted the contrast and texture pretty harshly so I keep wanting to hit the contrast slider, but that's purely me :P, the haze here gives the impression that everyone is living in the shadows.  And that's probably more proper.  I mean, you said you were going to ink it and all, but I kind of like this.
 
 Meh, you probably don't need a tired critique, good work.  Sleep well, get more pages up soon.

 Thanks for bumping this thread, I didnt know it exsisted before, really nice work La.
 Why do people insist on saying Graphic Novel instead of a comic? to overcome a bias?
 
 I like all the 'what if' Hypothetical scenarios.

                Some of you guys might have missed it, but La left the forum in kind of a huff a month or two back (don't expect him back) and set up shop over at DeviantArt. His profile is over here.
 
 The Graphic Novel starts here, and now has a cover and color and everything. Not an end yet, but still.

 Yes. From what I heard, LA attempted to post something really cool up and a forum bug caused the post to be denied, causing all the typing work he did to be lost. This had happened to him on several occations and eventually led to giving up on this buggy forum.
 
 I've seen him pop up on the Elysium that Valoris setup awhile back. Link here:

 That's all I know.

 Comic always reminds people of stories meant for children.
 
 Graphic Novel makes them sound like they have an actual depth to them (which quite a few do if done right) And are usually more teen\adult orientated.

 Basically. Comics also tend to have a water-color like appearance, while graphic novels are darker and/or more stylish.

 I hate the term tough. It reeks of ego. And no one likes a guy who jacks off in front of the mirror.

                Yo, Lancea here. Seems forumplanet ate my account, so it seems things are still screwy.
 
 Anyway, request - don't suppose anyone has Bloodines installed at the moment and could tell me the date on the asian dude's computer? I think that's the only instance during the whole story where there's a concrete date provided.
 
 Much obliged in advance.
 
 peace

 Good to see you again, La.  I'll get right on the dates on the notebook in Foxy Boxes.  Also, the photo of Lily is dated August 2003.
 
 EDIT:
 Here, hope this helps.

 Ah, just what I was looking for. Thanks, that does help. If I recall right, the last 2 entries concern the PC, while the first 3 gloat over how easy Santa Monica is to overtake. So, by deduction, the PC wasn't embraced until sometime around the 20th.
 
 Awright. Thanks again.
 
 peace
 
 ps. blood heal, eh? Wesp's been busy, I take it XD
