Well here it is, this is part 1 of thicker than water a 58 page comic about me growing up. some of you may have read the origional on my site

The names had to be changed because my fathers wife threatened a lawsuit but that's life.

everything in this comic is based on real events.

A lot of people are lost on the significance of the dead bird, the dead bird represents my other side, my inner doubt and self destructive nature. that aspect of the comic will become more apparent as the series grows.




Rated 4 / 5 stars

very good.

I have been a fanatic of underground comics since my dad inadvertantly got me on to Crumb's Zap Comix (by leaving them where I could find them) and this, as far as that goes, is pretty damned good.

For those of you wondering where you've heard MacMillan's name before, he is the creator of the hyper-popular Gish game that is advertised all over Newgrounds, and got recent rave reviews from I-Mockery, PC Gamer, the New York Times and OMGJeremy.

Thicker than water...

For some reason, I've heard of you before. I checked your website and its filled with obscene pictures of death. Maybe not. Well the comic is good - I liked the style of the character. And I understood the dead bird part. One question though - Is this comic based on true events? If so, that is sad. Poor kid.

I am not a fan of comics...

...nor do I feel that comics belong on a Flash Portal. It is a good comic book, though. Maybe you should push for NG comics.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

That was great.

I didn't think it was like Calvin and Hobbes. The author of Calvin and Hobbes mostly uses his characters to make points. Thicker than Water seems to be more about the characters than anything. I like Eddy's personality and how much tension there is between him and his sister. I also like how you use Eddy's real dad. He makes homophobes look stupid. Then he makes them seem even stupider when you get to see his thoughts. Great cartoons.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Interesting strip

Some of it was much funnier than other parts of it, I wasn't laughing the entire time, some of it I was just feeling bad. Overall the strip is good and it looks like a lot of effort went into it, I'd like to read more.
