Previous music replaced with royalty free tracks, new animated intro, retrospective document, and minor spelling errors fixed!


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.

- Photo Gallery.
- New Interface.
- Spec Page.

- Celx

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 5 / 5 stars

Silent Hill 2 reference :D

Awww...sickly sweet and VERY dark. Nice job. Even if the animations are not superb or anything, the effort is right there and I congratulate you for that. I love that it has a an intruiging story and subtle music. Haunting...
Take care :)

Celx-Requin responds:

I don't know if it's really all that brutal, I mean I tried to avoid showing direct violence.
Indeed I will concede the story is strange, but it all makes sense in the end doesn't it?

Anyway thanks for the review man I really appreciate it!

The contrasting colours and music selection complimented the gritty hopelessness of Colin. Incredible story, and beautiful fitting ending.

Thanks I'm really glad I went with this ending,
I had planned to do something different, I'm glad I had the balls go through with this one though.

The Best

I can only echo all of the other reviewers on this entry on how amazingly well done this was. the music created perfect ambiance for the story, the different colours used for text and characters helped emphasize certain points, and everything came to a beautiful, yet morbid, ending. Perfection.

Why doesnt he do that in the first place?

For someone who only has a few months to live, it sure was a long comic. How many times did he die? Three? four? I would rather die than have to go through with all that.
