Not bad. I hope you don't mind some constructive critism and comments...
The Good: I really like how it has a bit of that Treasure Island feel to it with an Urban Rivals twist and I enjoyed seeing Sakrohm getting into the act. Hawkins is a pretty likeable kid and Oryon being a man of few words was a nice idea.
The Bad: I know this comic is a translation but there were parts of the dialoge that I felt they could use some polishing. Like when Hawkins' mom calls him a "son of a lousy cook" it felt awkward maybe something like "you little brat" might flow better. As for the new artist, I'm really sorry, but I don't really like it. He's pretty decent with backgrounds and facial close-ups, but the ultra thick lines and how faces look from a distance (especally Hawkins') weren't as appealing.
I just wanted to say my peace and I look forward to the next installment.
The art's quality dropped in the Thriller storyline (every character in the same arms-and-legs-akimbo pose... had to check and make sure it wasn't early Rob Liefeld ), but it was a pretty minor dip. This time it's a really *major* drop in quality! The perspective and anatomy is waaaay off: in the second panel alone, Hawkin's legs are maybe half the length of his arms, his feet are smaller than his hands, his head's bigger than his torso... plus, he must be using telekinesis to hold the brown bottle up because it's not on the tray... oh, and for a little boy he's sure a whole lot bigger than the grown man in the booth next to him. Weird. Or as Hawkins would say, "Gadzooks!"
That being said, I'm very happy to see the comics coming out again. I'll *gladly* take regular installments of free comics with wonky art over four-month waits for $10+ comics with the occasional bit of brilliant art!
I hope Ismael Ba isn't put off by all the criticism on this board. Despite the technical flaws, his style appears to be quite playful which fits in perfectly with the game. Thanks to Mr. Ba and as Oryon's belly would say, "Chhbammm!"
