After nearly a year in the making, it's finally complete...

Colin S Jaw is a man shifting in and out of a dream...
Missing teeth, and with only a little time left to live, he embarks on a journey to
discover the origins of a mysterious pair of "sharps" he was sent upon waking from a coma.

A journey somehow intertwined with two detectives, and a string of extremely violent and disturbing crimes, a man slowly mutilating himself, and a series of esoteric dreams that are all pieces of a horrifying puzzle.

In this tale of a man darkly dreaming...

Main Features:
- A animated intro, exclusive to this cut.
- Remastered versions of all 14 prior comics,
and the premier of the conclusion to the series.

P.S. Add me to your favorite authors list if you want a P.M. when I release other stuff!
And it would be grand if you could recommend this for the noir section!



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Great, but too repetitive.

That was remarkable work. The grammar needed some work and the story was alittle too...ehh, well, it just disappointed me somewhat. I was expecting something less repetitive... The art style fit the story well and the music helped captivate the moment even further and the initial plot was different and unique (well, as far as unique goes...originality does not exsist in my opinion.)

Great Job! 7/10

My 10 streak NOOOOO...

I kid you, I totally understand the grammar thing, but keep in mind some of those spelling mistakes were done on purpose. To be more specific when there were capitals when there weren't supposed to be that was done on purpose, so to blend in with the erratic art style.

What's not supposed to happen though is words are misspelt...
And although I did my best to catch these, since all the words were hand drawn it's a little harder to go back and find them manually.

I digress,
Thank you for the review!

Thank you for sharing something so brilliant...

I honestly have no idea of how to describe what I just saw and read, other than it was truly amazing.

The story seemed a little jumpy, and I had a bit of trouble following at parts, but at the end I empathized with Colin. The art fit perfectly with the setting the story took place in; creepy and somewhat shaky. And the music playing in the background kept me a little nervous of what I'd see on the next page.

Celx-Requin responds:

I wonder if people realize there are two different tracks...

The "evil appetite" track was meant to invoke a feeling that the story was being told from Colins perspective.

The "real solution track" was supposed to invoke the feeling that the story was more of a dark detective tale being played out in real time, similar to something like Se7en.

Anyway, thanks for the review!

hehe the happy face

i like the story just as much as i like the happy face next to the almost dead naked girl

Celx-Requin responds:

Fun fact the whole "happy face" thing was based off of a real serial killer, who drove a truck and killed hookers on his route.

He was dubbed the "happy face killer" by the media, because he left a happy face in a public washroom, along with details indicating he was the person who had killed a bunch of people, that a older couple falsely confessed to.

There is bunch of stuff inspired by real events in the story.

Anyway thanks for the review!
