It's like a mix of semi-anime and JtHM style. That's pretty unique.

Since I haven't commented on American007 yet…

I like that you blur the foreground and background objects. I'm sure someone already said that, but if they did, it bears repeating. It makes it feel more like real life photography/cinematography, since you hardly ever get a crisp picture in all fields of vision. Very few comics (sprite or otherwise) I've read do this. They instead make everything in all fields crystal clear. It's a nice effect that you've achieved, and it keeps my eyes focused on the important actions.

I like the way the dialogue is written. I can't quite put my finger on what it is about it that I like, I just like it. Good work.

I love the art style for Frank Baron! So much detail! Love the black and white. Very expressive linework.

I love how sharp and clean the outlining is. Very nice text bubbles.

Not being a fan of sprite comics, I didn't really expect to like your comic…
But, it's good.
I like the use of photo backgrounds.

It's damn funny and your art is really neat. (How did you put your art on your CPU?!)

I'm only through the first dozen pages or so, but your comic is really funny. The punchlines are all spot-on and the characters are neat. (The first pages remind me a little of the auditions in Mystery Men.) I like the simple and vibrant style too. Faved it. :)

Its a good sprite comic. Surely that is an accomplishment in and of itself.

Who hasn't read penis yet? Go ahead and take a look.

My first time really checking out “Greater then Colon 0” though I have seen and admired the art before. I love your style. I love the poses and expressions of your characters and I love the “free” feeling of everything (overlapping lines and colors that don't always remain contained within them :) ). It has a uniquely fun feel.

You manage to get a lot of expressions with the eyes, and the art style seems familiar enough to be comfortable and different enough to be your own.

This is the first time I've come across Usedbooks. It's very long and I have to leave soon, so I only got the last ten or so pages… but your dialog is epic! Makes your comic a very enjoyable read. :D I'll have to come back and read the archives in full. :3

I BEAT YOU TO IT ASSHOLE! BAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Ok, back to compliments.

Well, it has words! That's always good. I also like the kind of blurry thing you have going there, and the overall grungy look.

You have a knack for making your characters realistic and pretty loveable.

It is not often that you find a sprite comic as good as this. Backgrounds look great!

I read Mosaic and Sort of Life and they're both really great!
SoL is really cute and funny, sad but funny! yay tetris! XD
And Mosaic reminds me a lot of Naruto but it has an interesting story. And I like your use of color in the recent pages. The flow of the pages is really good too, very dramatic! Yup, you got me hooked :3

It reads right-to-left, like the manga that inpired the art style!

Interesting approach.

I love that you use tones against color. I haven't really seen that a lot and I think it looks pretty darn unique. :D

I love the “visual poetry.” Your art conveys the mood of your words very well, and it is a whole different concept for a comic.

This was a double post so I will post from Presence and Used Books again ;)

For Presence:
A very atmospheric piece of work with excellent poetry and a lot of symbolism. It just seeps through to your senses and that is a very hard to achieve. Very well done, both artistic wise and writing wise :)


For Used Books:

The sheer interaction between the characters and the meshed gray areas of what is right and what is not is alluring. I love the way things are going and how there is no shying away from true (and not flamboyant) violence.

Wow, you're really good with having a lot of things happening in the background, and really fill up the panel. Your character designs are also really good, I like the shape of the head on the dude with the orange hair.

The character designs accentuate the comic nicely, and breathes life into the comic.
