Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.
Arik's facial expressions are just heart-wrenching.
This is one of the reasons he took so long to get close to anyone. It hurts too much.
I didn't really start reading a variety of webcomics until about a year ago. Since then, I have read over 150 easily now that I don't have kids at home during the day anymore. I read the whole story up to this point within the last day or so. This is only the second comic I have posted in, so that gives you an idea of how much I liked it. Having said that, I have to let you know that this is in the top five I have read. I love how you created a solid cast, and well defined relationships/beliefs BEFORE really introducing a major "Crisis". it gave me a chance to really get to know and love the main characters on a more relatable level before seeing how they act in a crisis. Thank you for putting this comic out, and keep up the excellent work.
WOW. Thank you! It's readers like you that keep us telling the story!
