Dear Josh Tierney and Spera artists,

I am so very amazed and inspired by…

I mean… this collaborative story is just so wonderfully done. Josh, you have really done an amazing job at writing a wonderfully fantastical tale that the artists were able to really run with. Afu Chan and Sarah Ferrick created amazing character designs that I feel like all the artists interrupted in seriously rad ways! I am just so excited that you all were able to gather around this one story and really give your heart to it. To read the amazing group effort that is Spera is so inspiring!

Spera has really brought together some wonderful artists who work in a wide range of different mediums. Of course I have a bias for comics, but to see the story be told through paintings and illustrations gave me a new perspective on story telling. An example of this is J. Arashi Hara’s contribution. I mean page 3 of part 3 just blew me away! The sea is literally coming up over the land with all its creatures! It’s so stunningly horrifying.

Having text come before each artist’s section really helped blend everything nicely together. It was the common thread that provided context and backbone to Spera.

The fact that the style of Spera constantly is changing really lends well to the magical tale. It makes me feel like I’m looking though a kaleidoscope! I just felt swept away the entire time I was reading. I love it! I love Spera. I really really do. Amazing job. Josh and all the artist, you should be super proud!

 

Keep up the hard work and being creative!

 

Love,

Dear Nicole Mannino,

You have created the most adorable and blush-worthy romance on the internet!! I mean seriously all the flirty gushy lovely teasing is driving me crazy!!! And Julian is such a sweet character and it has been so nice watching his development throughout the story. He is getting much more brave! It is great to see how his friends have influenced him and he them. Mostly for the better! Mostly…

BY THE WAY, Landon MAKES ME SO MAD!!! but in a cute way! He never takes care of himself and I know I would be a total Julian and end up taking care of him if Landon was in my life! -sigh- I love seeing Julian and Landon interact though. They are so cute and happy! I can not wait to see what happens next with them! And with the rest of the cast of course!

Also, your art is amazing and I love it! Your character’s outfits are cute, their faces are cute, the setting is cute, etc! It’s all cute, but it’s also very well done. Your comic has a lot of detail and style. My favorite detail is your mixed media chapter covers! I love how you mix photographs with cut drawings!! It’s just a nice touch!

I can not wait to read more as the story goes on!! I can really relate to Julian’s shyness in regards to relationships so it’s nice to have a character I can see myself in!

Keep up the hard work and being creative!

Love,
