Thanks, I was pretty nervous entering for the first time in a challenge... I think I got pretty lucky; there were a ton a great pieces I was up against - congrats to everyone who entered!

BlazeAce: The joke relies on knowing about the old TV show Star Trek - anyone in a red shirt that was not one of the main characters had a 99% chance of dying within minutes of beaming down, this guy lasted less XD.  What would you change in the outdoor scenes?  I'm just getting started with trying dithering and could use any suggestions.  Thanks,

Reminds me of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy! :D

I suppose I lack some common knowledge here since I don't get the idea on this one even though other comments prove that there is something funny in this. The artwork could be polished up a bit on the three last panels especially.

It's a nice looking comic but I just don't get it :D

try using different view angles and zooms for effect.

I full blown loled then called my husband over, He loled too.

The concept is fantastic, and the people are appropriate for an isometric scene.

I think that would have worked better for the over all image. The choppy angles and harsh pallets in some areas dont seem appropriate.
