The Love Eaters

jnkboy style
FINALLY! I did a Komik Bits about this story recently, talking about just how long this story's been sitting on my drawing board (a little over a year), and it managed to get me to finish it. So...Hooray!

I'd like to invite you to read it--it's a pretty simple, short story (crazy to think it took so long to make it)--but I'm really happy with how it turned out. Click on the big pic below to read it or go over HERE.

The drawing style reminds me of Hayao Miyazaki's graphic novel Nausicaa. I loved this piece. What a strange love story.

Hehe I'm glad it worked for you! It's been percolating in my head for so long, I'm just so happy to be able to share it. It is a little strange... :)

story-wise, I liked the way you used the trickster archetype to create the Pareng Ahas. Is he a recurring character?

There were also points that reminded me of Warren Ellis and Carlos Pacheco's Starjammers LS and Hayao Miyazaki's Spirited Away.

art-wise, I loved the depiction of Asong Kalye, but some of the staccato shots could do with a change in perspective. For example, the "run-flee-hide" trio of shots could do with bringing the "camera" a little bit closer just so that the rhythm of reading doesn't slow down.

all in all, a solid story :)

Re: Love it!
Thanks Tim! I wouldn't say "as always", hehe, since this style almost killed me, but I'll try to keep it up! :D

Re: Love it!
Well, I've always been a fan of yours ever since the poetry and writing for young adults days. So, at least for me, always. Astig! Hehehe.

Thank you for this entertaining little mythological story.

Was just wondering, if they really did love each other, why didn't they hesitate when it came to killing each other at the end? Or maybe one of them would have sacrificed its life for the other one. Or could it be that they were so used to their being love eaters that they simply had no choice. Or did the snake simply trick them and they were actually incapable of love? Wow, this comic made me think. :-) noel
