I'm seeing more and more new visitors as the deadline for Eisner Award voting nears. This'll be my only campaigning: Please give my comic a fair look and, if you think it deserves it, consider giving it your vote. Here's Page 1. Here's an FAQ/Author's Note that gives some background, including what I'm up to and why it's in black and white. I love this story, I'm telling it the best I know how, and your support would be hugely appreciated. Thanks!

  2. Flying dreams are the best kind. (Yes, even better than you-know-what.) I used to have them frequently in younger days; not so much now, but they're still ineffable. That kind of flight, those illusory sensations, are not easy to portray. Fleischer got it pretty well in the cartoon that inspired this webcomic. Disney's "Peter Pan" (1953) knocked it out of the park in the scene when Peter and the kids swoop along the clouds and then suddenly there's London spread out beneath them, far below. You're in good company, here, with the expressed vibe.

  3. Yes, flying dreams are the best. Once in a while I can conjure a *lucid* flying dream, in which I know I'm in a dream so I can just cut loose. I appreciate the comment; I tried to capture the same floaty feeling from my dreams in my drawing.

  4. Brian - Some people might sneak back to your site after having fallen behind on reading this fantastic story of yours and just quietly catch up without admitting that it had been two weeks since they'd been here.

    Those people are smarter than me, or perhaps better-liked...regardless, I'm catching up now, but had to comment on this page in particular - flying dream perfection! I have the lucid ones from time-to-time as well, and you nailed it. I absolutely love every panel on this page - the juxtaposition of the joyful fly-dream that we all share along with the secret desire to be a benevolent(?) dictator that only most of us do. That final panel is spot-on...if I had to describe it in two words, I'd go with "exultantly sinister."

    Well done as always!

    Hal, the publicly honest

  5. Hal, feel free to be as honest as you want, as long as you keep buttering me up at the same time! The opinion of a expert pilot means a lot to me in this regard. And I'm pretty certain the world would be a better place if we were in charge. Or maybe just me.
