Either this is the future, an imposter, or there's more than one Charlie. Looking forward to this chapter.

I just binged the entire thing in about 20 minutes. From what I've seen, your art skills are bloody brilliant, but your writing and pacing need serious work. The character development is sadly lacking as well. May I suggest perhaps finding a partner in crime to help you? Then again, maybe it's all just me being picky. None the less, I'll follow for a while, see where it goes.

You are right, I have never been a writer, and english isn't my first language so there's bound to have some mistakes along the way.
I've thought about having someone else work the story, but I'm not too sure about it yet, part of what makes this interesting is telling what I want to tell, not following the ideas of someone else, still, it's a possibility I'll consider in the future.

I can sort of see where this person is coming from, but I don't totally agree with him. I think your character development has been handled very well. I like your characters; they seem real and believable. I would say the pacing may be the only weak spot you have. But, that is really just a matter of opinion;
the transitions between fight scenes and the actual time spent in the fight seemed to be a little rushed. It almost seems like you want to get it out of the way as quick as possible and spend most of the time having character interaction. I'm just the opposite. I need to spend more time on character interaction and cut down on the fight sequences. Other than that, this is a great comic.

What I mean by lacking character development, is not that the characters are badly done or unbelievable, simply; how am I to know? I have yet to see any serious development. There was a grand total of one training page in which we got to see one of the characters learn and/or practice one aspect of their powers (I am referring to the telekinesis flight scene). The main heroine seems to suddenly master her powers over night, then pulls a completely new, completely mastered, Deus ex Machina type power out of her butt, just when they need to make a quick getaway. I understand wanting to move this along, seeing as making any comic, especially a mostly profitless webcomic, takes a huge amount of time and effort. But at the very least you could give us a page of training montage or a "3-5 days later" time skip bar. The only character who has had any real difficulty coping with their powers and the implications seems to be Chris. Laura had a short episode of "this isn't happening" then went to "oh wait, yes it is". Personally I would be flippin' the frick out that I had started hovering and talking like a robot at one point. How do her powers even work and what are the extent of them? The best we got was "they're tied to her emotions". Well she certainly knows how they work well enough to make everybody able to fly/be dragged along on command. Why can't we know what she does? Tom doesn't really seem concerned with his sister's well-being unless he is in close proximity to her. Much less the fact that she's freaking dead in his mind! (Or was that another comic, I do read a lot of these so please forgive me if I get mixed up). So that's just me clarifying my points and seeking faults. As I said before, the art is excellent and I'm gonna keep reading despite my nitpicking. And as to English not being your first language, I never would have known had you not told me.

You are mostly right about your comments, I appreciate it.
It's mostly by trying to shrink everything I want in a single 20-ish page comic, If I wanted to include everything it would be at least 30-35 pages, but I want to maybe print it later and comics are usually around 20-24 pages. :S

The last page was posted over a month ago. :(

More, please?

I'm sorry, next page is pretty advanced, sadly I changed jobs a while ago and I've been overloaded with work, I'm trying to let things stabilize a bit before continuing, but don't worry, I haven't abandoned it or anything XD

I just discovered this comic via the 'Collective Of Heroes' website and I' m quite pleased with it. The artwork, characters and plot lines are first rate. I'm looking forward to future episodes once things stabilize in your new job. Keep up the fine work.

Thanks! If everything goes as planned, next page should be ready for this week :)

Very good artwork, impressive storyline and character development, although Laura's acceptance of her abilities seemed a little too rushed. One moment she was anti-group/powers, the next she's pushing for superhero status obligations.

I'm following this as I think it a great example of personal development in the comic culture. Apart from the excellent artwork.
craybest 20th Oct 2014, 10:17 AM edit delete reply
I wish I had more time/pages to develop more the characters, maybe for my next project I'll work with a proper writer XD drawing is my thing.
That being said I think it has come better than I expected. :)
