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...

And it would be grand if you could recommend this for the noir section!

Holy Shit

Wow man, that was fuckin epic. I can't believe how long that was, but it was interesting so I kept reading. A very dark story, but suspenseful and really keeps you wondering what's next. Some parts of the story were confusing, and I'd probably have to read this multiple times to really understand it completely, but I'm sure you meant it to be kind of mysterious.

The drawings were all very good. Interesting style, and different. I liked them. The music track seemed to fit the story very well, I wished you had added a function to page through with a keyboard though :/

I see a lot of people talking about 'the series.' May be something I'll have to check out =) Keep up the amazing work.

Yes I did intentionally make the comic complex so people could pick up on things upon a second read through.

Thanks for the review!

Quite a big filesize and a long read to get through the whole story, but it's really worth it.
I now understood some things I didn't quite get before when I read through the different submissions, but now I think I get the story - or at least most of it.

This project really stands out from the masses of submissions. The story is amazing, the drawing style is very unique and very distinctive and the overall atmosphere of the comic is so dark it's hard to describe it with words.

I'm glad you finally finished this project and I'm glad that my previous doubts of how you can finish the story so that it all makes sense in the end proved to be wrong.

Also, congrats on Daily 2nd and Review Crew Pick, you really deserve those trophies. :)

It's finally here.

So the first thing I want to point out is that I really loved the story, but I got lost at the end. I understood the story all the way up until the last few chapters and I just didn't quite get it or that I wasn't just too impressed with the ending. Do you mind summing the story up at the end just to make sure that I wasn't shorting you here on my ignorance?

It was great that you added some animation in with this one, but I swear if you took some time out of your busy schedule you could make this an amazing animated series. I personally believe that the series itself would make several hundred dollars if it were fully animated, but that's up to you as it would take a very long time to make this entire thing animated.

The story is amazing in my opinion. Like I mentioned it just didn't make too much sense to me towards the very end. The music was good all around and if this were every animated I would love to see voices in it.

You should be pretty proud of this series and I'm happy you stuck with it an won a group of awards here.

Full Circle

-Nice to see a revamp in the interface. While the original was good this one feels more streamlined and easy to use while still keeping that dark gritty style to it.

-It's nice to see some animating involved in this series. The comics are classic and work well to keep the artistic style but they lack the fluidity of animation. Just the little animation that you included in this one was nice and I wouldn't mind seeing more introductions like this in future works.

-It's been a long road but everything seems to have come full circle for Mr. Jaw. Very deep, dark story that must have taken a long time to fully plan out to work this way.

It did take a while to plan out this way, it took even longer to find the time to go through with putting this pen to paper, but man it was worth it.

Thanks for the review and all your prior reviews too!
