This was amazing, I never thought I'd actually end up feeling SYMPATHY for sadistic killers. I think Darco's my fav. out of all of them, surprisingly enough.

That twist at the end was something I totally didn't see coming, you surprised me at every turn. Reminded me about what a good mystery was supposed to be like.

Good Show!

I like Darko's character design the best, Colin is still my favorite though...

Thanks for the review,

A bittersweet tale

Man, this was amazing. I found this by hitting the portal "random" button which takes you to a random submission, I'm glad I got this one.

First of all it had great art style, and ambiance to go with it. The mixture of the music with the crude yet very well done drawing style, the disturbing yet gripping story, made for a really unforgettable experience. I would recommend you transform this into a novel or something, I would be very interested to read more about it, like with more detail or something. The story was so frightening, and I could almost feel the pain the character was going through.

All in all, an amazing noir comic with a horribly entertaining backstory and visuals to compliment it perfectly. The dramatic music gives a subtle increase to the ambiance which puts it over the top. Fantastic work, I'd love to see more like this.

If you're interested in seeing something similar to "CoolJaw: Dreaming Darkly", check out my new comic I just completed "The Sugar Claws: F.C.". And leave a review dammit I'm interested in what people think.

Thanks again for the review!

A Good Bag Of Mix up and Sweet, Sweet Payback.

Oh my god. Yes. Death, Love, and Family Values put into one 20 minute long comic, and some great ambiance to go with it. The drawings were fantastically crude and drawn perfectly horrible. The whole damn thing was a simple oxymoron. Roses are RED, and violets are BLUE. I love violets, too. I love this, and I love you.

P.S: Write short stories, and novels. Guaranteed best-seller.

Celx-Requin responds:

Thanks man!

If you get a chance you should review "The Sugar Claws: F.C.", I'd be interested in hearing what you think about the completed project :)

Thanks again,

Dude, as dark and messed up as this was, I absolutely loved it. I might not sleep too well tonight (it being a school night and it being like midnight) but whatever. It was worth reading it, despite whatever repercussions may come. Keep on writing man!

Celx-Requin responds:

If you liked this you may wanna check out "The Sugar Claws: F.C." it's my second completed comic!
If you have time leave a review on it I'm interested in what you think!
