Comic Review: Noche

Noche
http://noche.thecomicseries.com/
About some science experiment thingy gone wrong... then the subject (some girl who looks like she's in her late teens or early 20s) who happened to have superhuman powers escapes.  Then she finds herself in a desert.  And then some grim reaper fellow finds her.  And his name is... *drumroll*...  Greg.  And then...  thats about it.  Wont spoil it. 

Art - 2.5/5
- Author seems to have grasp of shading and color but needs alot of work on figures and some work on perspective. 
- Lineart needs to be cleaned
- some fight scenes hard to understand.  For instance, in panel 1 on this page:
http://noche.thecomicseries.com/comics/15
- Art improved maybe by 10-20% from the beginning to the latest page.  I guess your art naturally improves as you keep cranking out pages... 
- Author shows signs of the will to improve his art. 

Story - 4.5/5
- Has some humor to it... but its really a serious comic.
- I really liked the story.  It didnt bore me.  Even if this is a cliche "good guys vs some evil organization" type of story, the author has done a good job in making it interesting. 
- I could have given this a "5" but... I think the story needs  a little more depth to it.  Just my opinion... cuz I have studied psychology extensively.  I think the character of Noche could have been given a little more depth in the psychological sense. 

Delivery - 3.5 / 5
- Pages too big.  Pls resize them for a computer with a resolution that is 1024 x 768
- some spelling errors:
http://noche.thecomicseries.com/comics/65 ( For instance, its "existEnce" not "exsitance")
http://noche.thecomicseries.com/comics/70 ("knowledge")
http://noche.thecomicseries.com/comics/109 ("magnet" and "temporary")
http://noche.thecomicseries.com/comics/121 ("tomorrow")
- Other than that, easy to understand panel flow. 

Overall Impression - 3.5 / 5
- Bad art but awesome story.  Bummer eh?

Comic Review: Double Jump Game Comics

Double Jump Game Comics
http://doublejump.thecomicseries.com/comics/first/

Art - 4 / 5
- Art is good.  I love the drawing style, actually.  May need some cleaning up here and there and maybe some minor errors...  For instance in these strips:
http://doublejump.thecomicseries.com/comics/7 (her right hand in the 1st panel looks a little too big)
http://doublejump.thecomicseries.com/comics/22 (Dude's shoulder in 3rd panel looks a little dislocated)
http://doublejump.thecomicseries.com/comics/33 (Dude in 1st panel... hand too big and body out of proportion)

But hey... everyone makes mistakes.  So its not a big deal.  :)

Story / Humor - 3 / 5
- Most of em arent really funny in my opinion and make me go "WHAT?!?"  Maybe because I havent played the games being referenced?  I'm not really a gamer type.  But sometimes, some of the strips are funny.  I warn you though... some of the strips contain extreme violence.  Not sure if you'd like em... 

I like these ones though (warning:  some of them contain extreme violence)...

http://doublejump.thecomicseries.com/comics/41
http://doublejump.thecomicseries.com/comics/47
http://doublejump.thecomicseries.com/comics/52

Delivery - 2.5 / 5
- I normally dont like handwritten dialog.  But the handwriting here is good enough so I'll let it pass.
- I hate side scrolling.  Makes it hard to navigate. 
- could you maybe up the contrast a little when you scan them? 

Overall Impression - 3.5 / 5
- I think you would appreciate this comic more if you are a gamer type.  But as a non-gamer (but ex hardcore counter-strike and starcraft player) I think this comic has its good points.

Comic Review: Screw You All It's My Life Not Yours

Screw You All It's My Life Not Yours

http://screwlife.thecomicseries.com/
Some comic strips done by "Lincoln" (http://comicfury.com/profile.php?username=Lincoln)
If you dont like it, screw you all... its his life and not yours.  :)

Art - N/A
- Art is sloppy but it delivers the point across.  This is a comic strip so I wont be too hard on the art.  But if I were to rate the art, I'd give it 2/5.  Because while its bad, at least its clean.   

Story / Humor - 2/5
I really didnt find them funny.  Except maybe this strip:  
http://screwlife.thecomicseries.com/comics/6

Delivery - 4/5
- Very easy to understand and good choice of font.  And it draws your attention in even if you have a short attention span.  

Overall Impression - 2.5/5
- There's nothing really extraordinarily special about the life of this guy.  At least based on the very few strips that were posted up... and assuming its a comic that is actually based on his life due to the way it is titled.  But then again perhaps he'd tell me "Screw you!  Its my life.  Not yours!"  :)

And dude... don't let your mom's hypnotic suggestions get into your head.  Otherwise it may not be good for you.  (in reference to this strip:  http://screwlife.thecomicseries.com/comics/8 )

Comic Review: Jenffer's Show

Jenffer's Show
http://jenffersshow.thecomicseries.com/

Art - 1/5
- Art needs improvement in all departments.  Proportion, perspective, figures, pretty much everything.  This looks like it was drawn by  someone under age 10.  

Story - 3.5/5
- Its about a girl (who was formerly a guy) named Jenffer who turned into a cat girl... and she is lesbian.  And then she has this protector Miss J.  And her evil evil dad who seems to be evil for the sake of being evil.  And then many things happen.  Wont give spoilers.  The point is, the story in of it itself is not bad.  And there's lots of romantic stuff between lesbians involved.  

Delivery - 1/5
- many pages too large.
- Hard to understand because of too many spelling and grammar errors.  For instance (cannot list them all):
http://jenffersshow.thecomicseries.com/comics/5 (In the mid panel, it should be "let us catch her but she hit the ground")
http://jenffersshow.thecomicseries.com/comics/7 (Suppose to be "what the hell")
http://jenffersshow.thecomicseries.com/comics/8 ("survive" not "sirvle")
http://jenffersshow.thecomicseries.com/comics/10/
("before" not "befor"... and "so this is what it feels like in a cat girl's body")
http://jenffersshow.thecomicseries.com/comics/12 ("famous", "cartoonist", is "trandger" suppose to be "transgender?")

Overall Impression - 3/5
- Don't let the poor art and grammar deceive you.  If you check out "miss j bio and the cast" and the bio of the author, you will see more interesting things than the comic.  

I have a feeling that the poor art and grammar was done on purpose.  Perhaps as a joke to the reader about not judging the book by its cover?  I dont know.

Mosqueteria Protest at the Toronto District School Board July 25 2011

What happened to equality? Christian prayers not allowed in public school but Islamic prayers are allowed? I smell double standard.
