FIRST POST! EDIT: @slater474: :P

This is nothing like I thought it would be.

That doesn't mean it doesn't look like it's going to be amazing! :D

Love the rain effects, you did that in Powerpoint, no? Also, I love the lamppost and the light coming from it. Awesome.

The whole thing will be black and white, yes? If so, that's entirely awesome. Especially since it's in the future, and that it wouldn't make sense for it to be in black and white. :P Kidding, kidding.

This looks like the start of an amazing comic, Blue. Very promising.

I await the next part with great interest.

I have been meaning to post about all of your comics, Jl, but I never got around to it. I have always admired your work, creating such grey areas with the awesome tool of LEGO. I am really liking the start of this comic. Will it continue in black and white or will it chnage into color? Just curious.

Well, this is exactly what I expected it to be. A noir set in the future. You know why? Because that's exactly what I WANTED TO DO. Which is EXACTLY what happened WITH SMILEVILLE. Oh, but this time, Mr JLBlue...

This time...

I did it first.

*Ahem*

Anyway, a nice start. It's got all the noir necessities - monologues, a detective in a fedora, a young broad - while still seeming fresh and original cos it's 2028 and not 1958. I'll be watching this.

Mainly so I can parody it later, but hey.

I just migh drink it to keep the fear of SEEING THE PAT THAT SHOULD BE COVERED BY NAME OMG SO MUCH BLOOD

Damn. I guess it isn't a prequel to Est. 62, like I had assumed. :/ At least I got the 'in the future' thing right, though.

Anyway, lovin' it so far. The black and white is perfect, here. Not what I expected, but still great.

This is definitly the best looking Lego comic I've seen and it's story so far is interesting to boot. I really like the sort of gangster atmosphere you're using too.

I love it, Jeff. And don't listen to Grom - the way you have the B&W is awesome. Especially in the office scenes.

I'm liking it so far. Reminds me slightly of blade runner, though there aren't that many similarities.

sorry 'bout that. I want you to think I thought he was bad, I love his comic 'Living on the Edge'. If people got the wrong image, I'm sorry.

Haha, no problem. Just leave the bashing of that Australian dwarf to me. :P

The whole thing will be black and white, yes? If so, that's entirely awesome. Especially since it's in the future, and that it wouldn't make sense for it to be in black and white. :P Kidding, kidding.

Yes, all effects in PowerPoint, as per usual.

Whole thing. Which I'm taking advantage of, because this way I can have yellow and flesh together, because in black and white they look to be the same color.

YES! JL's new comic. Time for badassnes.

Also, first post.
Dammit.

Hehehehehe. :D

Yeah, but that's an RP. So ha.

Damn. I guess it isn't a prequel to Est. 62, like I had assumed. :/ At least I got the 'in the future' thing right, though.

No, no, this is not in the '62niverse. And even if it is, there will be a 0% chance of any similar elements popping up, given that this separated from Est. '62 by a good three centuries. But it's not in the same universe, so whatever.

This is definitly the best looking Lego comic I've seen and it's story so far is interesting to boot. I really like the sort of gangster atmosphere you're using too.

I'm glad you like the atmosphere. The visual aspect of this comic is very important.

ANYWAY, to make this NOT a spammy post, I've dropped some advice in the spoiler box below. Ignore it if you want, but it'll be there (taunting you forever :P).

*UNREQUESTED ADVICE*

I guess it looks a little better. I'll keep experimenting as I go on with various techniques so I might give it a shot.

Does everyone here know how badly I wish to abuse my mod priveleges and delete every post so I can get "first post?" :P

I love it, Jeff. And don't listen to Grom - the way you have the B&W is awesome. Especially in the office scenes.

I'm glad that you're sponsoring my comic without giving me any kind of notice. :P

Anyway, I hope to get more as soon as possible.

Great comic, I look forward to more issues.

...Would you believe I actually had that idea, too? Now I'm scared. Are you sure you're not hiding in my living room or something?

About the noir thing - the only reason I mentioned it is because I spent a whole term doing film noir at school (I take a subject where we make movies and analyse movies), and my teacher was a Nazi with the colour correction we did. Film noir is drilled into my brain, man :(
