The site layout is fine, but I do have a critique about the look of the comic itself.<P>The combination of the unusual font you've chosen and the translucent speech balloons makes your dialogue very difficult to read. Any sense of rhythm to the characters' speech is lost when you have to read the words verrrrrry slooooowly. Dialogue isn't just a tool to drive the story forward, it's also a revealing character attribute.<P>I've noticed than many web-strippers treat dialogue as a pesky, last-minute necessity that they'll slap on any old place. I think that if you work on cleaning up and presenting your characters' speech more legibly, your comic will improve dramatically.<P>Just my two cents, which you are of course free to ignore.<P><P>------------------

Hmm, I'll have to run a poll on this one and see how other readers feel.<P>------------------

I agree. It's readable, but not very comfortable. The comic would be much better with a simpler, straighter font.

So it seems that many people have had problems with this font. I wonder why no one mentioned it before. Let's see how the poll goes as to what I will do.<P>------------------
