    I have to say, I see the comments on the new site are more... well, there's more of them . But judging by what they are saying, and judging by the few mangas/animes I've seen so far, I would probably guess there aren't many artists of your caliber out there.

    I'm wondering what you do for a living (art wouldn't surprise me), and why no-one's offered to pay big bucks to put your works in all major stores (though I don't know where I'd find manga stores, except maybe the mall up in the province capital). It's certainly one of the better stories I've read, comic form or not, second probably only to The Lord of the Rings... And if you did a manga-form retelling of that, it would outdo everything, ever.

    Seriously, Elagune. When I was introduced to Bibliography, it was the first manga/anime I had any interest in reading. And Thaumaturge is very, very good too; You are a genius of an artist.
    Oh, I intended on replying to this post but forgot.

    I'm an art student studying animation at the moment, and I think you give me a little too much credit. I just do what I like and try to do my best at it. There are many people out there much more talented than I, and I just do my best to try and match up to what others are capable of putting out at a much faster pace and higher quality than me. I guess I do want to make money off of my comics, but not so much that I would alienate my readership.

    Anyway, thanks for the huge support. I'm always grateful to see people enjoying my work, even if I don't reply.

    By the way, I'm finished up to page 29 now. My buffer is back!

    Personally, I would have said Merlin case , but I don't see how any of it would be decay. Merlin and Benjamin Button both aged backwards if you didn't know yet.

    This man is far kinder to Bibliography than I would've been if I was a reviewer, but he pretty much hit the nail on the head.

    Now that I can look back on it with fresh eyes, I squandered an opportunity with Bibliography. Too many different threads of plot in my head that interfered with each other, so many beginnings with unsatisfying or no conclusions. Characters introduced with no reason other than to show off some cool designs and displaying shallow personalities, and in the end four years passed with pretty much no plot development to speak of. Bibliography is a failure in my eyes. The idea was interesting, but the execution so mediocre that it stalled it flat.

    But that doesn't mean it was a waste of time. I learned a lot during my time drawing Bibliography, both in the art and writing department. I learned that experimenting is good, but having stability is important to the continuity of a comic. I also learned that art might draw people in, but writing keeps people coming back. I also learned that it's important to finish the plot points that you start.

    Self-reflecting done. This is starting to sound more like a personal blog post. In other news, I'm uploading tomorrow's page early to Manga Magazine. DD will show up later. Will be too busy playing D3 to draw tonight!

    Well, it wasn't exactly full of praise, but I wouldn't say it was entirely accurate. OK, yes, a lot of his critisism is true (OK, most/all of it), but he missed many good points. I felt that the humor was excellent, and despite your "troubles" with writing, you kept the main plot going at a reasonable pace. And I enjoyed the variety of characters (I would call them "extras", or "scene fillers") that didn't last very long.

    Self-reflecting done. This is starting to sound more like a personal blog post.
    Speaking of which, do you have a blog? It would be interesting to read.

    What it really came down to, in my opinion, is that you didn't have a compelling villian. A good well defined villian with a Master Plan (tm) can really drive the plot forward. Thaumaturge is a good example, notice how scarecrow man has kept our hero's on the clock and infused a sense of urgency to the whole comic.

    Gotta love those references.

    And he is formidable, for both reasons - power and competence.

    Powerful villains are fairly standard. A villain who tries to avoid pointless conflict and do what they need to quickly without getting distracted are considerably rarer.

    Actually, if you look back a bit.. the 'gun' he fired at one of the prison guards had a small Death card as its 'hammer'.

    I'm thinking they can also be used as non one-shot enhancements of mundane objects. I guess if you put in a pyro card you get mini fireballs.

    And anyways, what would Casper be? A Mortisopher?

    Presumably, no confirmation though.

    Also two new pages. They hadn't been linked so I figured why not me.

    I get the feeling that Casper's face is a skull under that mask. Either that or he's someone's brother.

    On the topic of Casper, that guard's death was so fast that it actually looked merciful. If there was, say, a page between 24 and 25 with the guard melting and screaming it would make Casper's choice of thaumaturgy seem more horrifying.

    To be fair, the guard did look rather terrified as his face was turned into shadow and dissolved into the background, but it definitely could have been worse. Of course, that would have had far less class, and savvy villains can't really afford to look too horrible. I mean, just screaming would have woken everyone up already, and the time it would take would give the guard time to fire off a few inaccurate shots that could still have some important significance later.

    Nah, he had lips. He was grinning when he gave the Xykon power speech, wasn't he? His mask's mouth and eyes are just holes (though he maybe wears sunglasses or something? Gotta figure out how to make that.)

    I would not be upset if Casper got the recurring villain treatment. Froma certain standpoint, its better than being a main villain in that you are guaranteed to stay alive/only experience minor incarceration times.
