GAHHHHHH. *grabby hands*

I actually spent most of what was left of my last paycheck from my summer job on the first volume (two copies, one as a gift to a friend) and a few extras. XD AND IMMEDIATELY AFTER YOU COME OUT WITH THIS AND I AM LEFT BROKE AND SAD AND TJ AND AMAL-LESS. Q~Q I am like a junkie and it is very sad.

...This just motivates me to get a job sooner. XD DAMN YOU EK, YOU ARE MAKING ME A (sort of) RESPONSIBLE ADULT.

This is beautiful. I've been beating myself up for not purchasing volume two sooner; the first volume is currently looking a little too lonely on my bookshelf for my liking, and I just now managed to put aside some money for its companion. In addition, I'm thrilled to see that the signed/sketch version is still available in the store. Hooray! Purchased.

I just caught myself up to the last chapter online (clear through the 31st of October update) and this new development in the story has changed everything for me. I'm in love with this story--I have been since the moment I stumbled upon it some years ago--but this has taken TJ and Amal to another dimension of reality, both in story and character. I applaud your skills; you are a truly gifted storyteller. Your impeccable sense of dialogue and the way you deal with character flaws both have influenced my contemporary writing throughout the years as I hone my own craft. Thank you for sharing this story with us. It could only be told by you, and I think I can speak for everyone when I say we're all grateful.

You know what I love about your comic? Just looking at this reminds me of the intricate details your put into your beautiful backgrounds. It reminds me of my two cross-country trips to America back in 2007 and 2011. There's that great sense of adventure and discovery in your stories - I look forward to more locations of this brilliant road-trip with TJ and Amal. :+fav:

Yay! Volume 2 is already on its way to print. I couldn't figure out how to buy v1, but that was when people just finished bidding for extra stuff (autographs, posters).

I didn't keep up with the story, but it'll be worth reading the story in one go. It was torture waiting every week for the new pages. DX

Faaantastic, it was great to see this take shape through Tumblr. Your shading and lighting is so nice, and your backgrounds and scenery are always spectacular. The corn stalks look amazing, and I love those dark, puffy clouds! The sky in general is just lovely. A very attractive cover, the kind that anyone would see and just wanna pick it right up. Which I will be doing with each of these volumes!

I saw them in concert once and - i shit you not - i passed out at the end from sheer excitement overload. My boyfriend had to carry me out of the crowd.
BEST. NIGHT. EVER.

Oh hell yes. We saw them at Stubb's in November 2009 and it was fucking INTENSE. They actually closed with "Wonderlust King" and the entire audience was jumping up and down in unison.

LA DE DA DE DA LA DE DA DE DA OHHHHH~

Haha! I must ask, how do you come up with your dialogue? Is it just careful planning, and tedious scripting?

The dialogue actually comes really easily for me. I struggle like hell with all the other aspects of the comic, but that one seems to come naturally. Just flows out on its own, I guess.

Haha, thanks, I wanted Amal to seem relaxed but still sort of stuck in himself (thus the crossed arms), and TJ starting to get a bit uneasy
