Rated 5 / 5 stars


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!

5/5 10/10

The animation at the beginning was great, but I ended up really appreciating the "comic" style. It game me time to truly appreciate the artwork. Very noir. Should be made into a movie, really. Going on my favorites so I can watch it many times more and show it to everyone.

When I first sat down to watch this, or rather read through it, I had no idea so much time and effort had been put into such an equisite and twisted storyline. I adore Colin and the ending is truly bittersweet. Thank you so much for making this, it was truly moving <3

Aww, I'm always moved when people say they like one of my characters.
On that note you may wanna check out my current comic "The Sugar Claws", and let me know what you think.

Now that's epic

Dude, this comic took me a total of twenty-one minutes to read! I don't know what you did, but you certainly create a webcomic decent enough for a lengthy story! What was really cool about this was the music. It was haunting the entire time. It was a little hard to understand the story, but I did manage to get the basic story with all the characters. It was pretty cool with how he was able to reunite with his wife at the end.

For something with such a dark atmosphere, it had a fairly uplifting ending. The drawings were great as well and it makes me wonder how long it took you to make all of them. Thank you for giving us a good set of visuals and great things to read as well. I never realized how much sharks look like a standard replay button. It was also extremely unpredictable and chilling.

Celx-Requin responds:

I wouldn't say the ending was uplifting though, I prefer to think of it as bittersweet.

Simply too brilliant..

Reading this as evening reigns over me, darkness consumes every inch of my small room. The strings of the piano vibrates grimly in my eardrums.

Yet, only a handful of reviews and views. I'm feel quite sad that such great work of yours didn't get better views from Newgrounds.

Admirably, you put lotsa refrences, Silent HIll. David lynch's muholland, Inland Empire, 1408 horror movie. I adore the noir style of your comic and as poppa mentioned before, you raised an interesting thing on 'humanity'. You had a killer father with abnormally sharp teeth reunited with a slit mouth-one eye killer surgeon- they're monsters yet it was quite touching. The prologue animation was very well done-good music choice.

No complaints. I'm just too lucky to observe your hard 9 months work instead of the pieces.

I'm really glad someone finally acknowledged some of the references to Lynch's films, I'm a little surprised no one caught the Orwell reference though, especially since it was the most prominent one in the story.

Don't feel sad it only has a couple of views, and reviews...
I'm not, it's seems to be finding its audience, and I still get the occasional P.M. from somebody telling me about how cool the story was.

Anyway thanks for the review it made my day,
