I really like this, Dash. I have more or less no idea what to make of it so far, but I like it a bunch. There's great use of colour and different media in there. I look forward to seeing where it goes.

"more or less no idea"-- You are a man after my own heart.
Seriously: thanks, Andrew.

Wow. This seems really dense (as in, lots of content and layers, not dense as in stupid!) and the illustrations you posted are *gorgeous*! I'm amazed.
(PS are the little coda squares grid pieces of a larger and mysterious image?)

Well, not so mysterious. It's for the coinciding maps that are linked to on the sidebar here:

I guess that isn't clear enough.

Thanks!

OH, it's the location where the scene is taking place! What a great way of punctuating your story ^_^

The comic is very strange and hypnotic. It reminds me of David Lynch's films. Nice work, Dash.

Thanks Kazu. That means a lot to me. The fact that you were doing a webcomic that seemed to come more from a Sunday newspaper-page sensibility, and clearly spending so much time on something you were putting up for free- it was definitely an inspiration to me getting into this.

Wow! just spent half an hour in your mind... It's a real strange place! Came away thinking I'd go back there again! I think Kazu is right about the David Lynch feel. You create a really good tension and I really like the near death sequences when he thinks he's seeing angles. :D Big Claps!
