After five years my trilogy of comics is complete, "A Twisted Transparency" is the final comic in my saga, and also my first animated film.

You can choose to read or watch it, personally I would watch it first, then read it once over in case you miss anything.

While you may be able to understand the basic story in this film without reading the other two comics I did. I would suggest you read em anyway, cause you'll get a better picture of what I was aiming for as a whole with these submissions.

There are a shitload of extra features, but I guess the most interesting one will be the "Harmony Dossier" especially if you had trouble following the story, or want to know more about the universe.

Thanks for the last five years newgrounds, it's been a pleasure!

It's a great movie and concept art, I loved it! However, the only thing I would suggest is that you should set more time to read all the text in the movie. That way you won't need to put the comic with the movie and you would be able to save space for other things.

Found this on release and ended up watching the entire trilogy backtobacktoback . Amazing work, very detailed and am definitely a follower.

Now i feel old, but after all this time this is still as good as it ever was, maybe even better.

This is awesome.
It's dark, artistic, moody, cool, collected, and all in a silent film type of format!
I really like the visual approach you used, it somehow commands and takes charge of the emotion you're portraying. Very well done.
I've never seen any of your work before this, but I'll be on the look out for your future projects.
Keep up the great work!

Woah, en entire DVD in flash form.. though it's not such a long movie it's definitely one of the more extensive productions I've seen in a while. Don't think I've read the previous comics though so in a way it feels like the story doesn't really bond with me. The writing is elaborate, and at the same time it's written in a fragmented way like Memento or other noir thrillers. I like the mixture of typography and outlines, it works well for the most part, but the characters some times fade away into the scenery. It's also much more of a story than an animation, and one that doesn't feel particularly rewarding, as we don't grow to know the characters, as it doesn't seem there's anything that really drives them onwards or anything is actually complicated at the end, despite the well-versed tale and complex bonds and syndicates detailed. Extra material explains quite a bit, but as a wholesome experience the movie is like a fragment. Anyway, great work putting all of this together, and nice to see it's an NG exclusive too... I'll definitely be a follower. Keep it up!
