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 Jake Wyatt,

This comic had me just clapping at it’s excellence the whole time. That comic is…

Your work has such a wonderful, classical feel and is so intensely detailed. I was quickly sucked in and did not stop reading till I was to the newest update! You have very thoughtfully designed your world, your characters, and carefully curated the language you use. I am very impressed by your use of color and design. All your characters are very distinct and fully realized. I can clearly tell who is who, what they are all about, and what their role is in the story. 

I am very excited to get on with the story going forward. I can not wait to know more about the Conqueror Queen and the Seer King. I am very interested in the politics of Hyberia as a whole! And of course I want to see what becomes of Clara and her journey. I really enjoyed your design interlude because it gave us a hint of what Clara could become. Yet, that may change, I still think it was great to see her in all the gear and fighting spirit!

Your design interlude was for sure one of my favorite things you have included on your site. It’s just amazing to see another artist’s thought process and how they come to realize their ideas. It’s just really inspiring! I also loved the cuts to the story of the Seer King and Conqueror Queen. It gives the story more depth and an interesting history. 

I listen to highland instrumental music while reading through. I think that for sure intensified the magical aspects of Clara’s journey. You have already done a great job making Necropolis feel cinematic, but the music added a great touch! 

And thanks to Kathryn for sure! Every artist needs someone to run things by and I am sure your guidance has helped Necropolis be the amazing story that it is.

Keep up the hard work and being creative!

Love,

Dear Bree Paulsen,

I am both blushing and barfing at

I really have been enjoying reading through your comic. The blood and cuteness are just great! Everything has just the right amount of gore mixed with love and care! I really enjoy all the relationships that Patrik has. They are so goofy and endearing. My favorite thing is Patrik’s cat though! 

Your art style is really warm and expressive. You go into such detail with the settings and character and have a great color pallet going on. I also really love how you play around with Patrik’s timeline and show us his past. It really helps with trying to understand how Patrik got to be so chipper! I really enjoy the story you are telling and can not wait to see more!

Please, keep up the hard work and being creative!

Love,

Dear Lulu VanHoagland,

The most normal comic I have ever read is…

Image result for monsterous mimi

So. Normal. There is barely anything to write about. I really love how bland and boring the character Mimi is. How she walks around in her normally cute clothes and how she carries around her totally typical tentacled pet. Mimi is such a good girl and I really enjoy her average advice on beauty and getting rid of unwanted casual pimples. Her friends seem pretty lackluster as well. Ophelia and Ozzy both start with O…so…yeah.

In all seriousness, I really enjoy your webcomic! It has bright fun colors and always takes a surprising turn to the dark! I am honestly always a little creeped out. It is hard to find a good cute/horror comic these days. If you have any suggestions, let me know. I feel like this comic fills the void that my middle school self needed filled.  Thank you for making such a delightfully scary and adorable comic creation. 

Please, keep up the hard work and being creative!

Love,

The Webcomic Whisperer

Not unlike a facial tbh.

Dear Tillie Walden,

My heart is ready to burst after reading…

It is so easy to feel like I am having a magical dream when reading your comic. The way that panels melt and flow into each other is just so smooth. I love the soft colors you use and the way that they help indicate that a new part of the story is being told. Your comic is both soft and intense. My emotions are always running on high when I’m reading and my eyes are as wide as can be. I think that is a great thing. You portray emotions through words, emotions, and actions so realistically that is is so easy to feel like I am right there with the characters. You don’t over do anything. There is always the realistic and right amount of energy in each phase of the plot. 

Stylistically, I really admire your work. You put so much information in your panels, but it never seems like too much. You give just the right amount of visual information. It just is perfect. You have a lot of beautifully detailed panels, but when needed you only draw a panel with what’s needed, abstracting it to just a feeling or a couple lines! You are a great visual storyteller to say the least! I really could go on and on and on and on… Oh, and the romance is so darn cute and intense so yeah…my heart will burst I bet. 

Please, keep up the hard work and being creative! 

Love,
