  1. Stunning work as always. I love your use of color here.

    It keeps striking me how many of your stories remind me of some of my own. Thanks for sharing them.

  3. The panels with no words are powerful. It helps the pace of the story, but also makes the reader feel the serenity of the woods.

    Great work as always.

  4. Fantastic work, John. Deja vu is an incredibly powerful, moving instance of thought. But like a dream, it's gone as quickly as you can recall it. This is one of my favourite comic series on the internet, and I am baffled you don't have a book yet. Are you a fan of Jeff Brown's work?

  9. Sorry, when I wrote "shitty terrible" earlier, what I really meant was "beautiful delicate."

  10. John, your work was so powerful in the monochromatic style and, somehow, it's even more moving with your addition of color. You keep blowing me away, man.

    I often find myself wondering what memories I'm creating for my sons which, honestly, can be both a wonderful and a terrifying thought.

  13. You're getting really excellent at pacing a story and recreating an honest memory.

  14. You captured the feeling of Deja Vu + Traversing the forest as a child perfectly, looking forward to your next comic!

  15. Reminds me of a Will Oldham track Apocalypse No

    Love the sense of progression implicit in the dialogue free panels - juxtaposed nicely with the alternately tinted and recomposed flashback. there was a sensation of deja vu conveyed here, especially in that moment of realisation he has, those two panels side by side.
