My rating: 1 of 5 stars

This entire comic exists for the words on the last page. It’s a plot device that is often used to make a story seem important and deep — instead, it made me gag. This was neither important, nor deep. It was just “blah”… or actually, “bleh”. The redeeming feature: the art. It was okay. I initially didn’t care for it, but it did grow on me. It just didn’t aid the story in any way — it could have done so much more. The speech bubbles and font…a major fail which, on top of everything, added an amateurish/self-pub feel. Not recommended.
