Does Karl live in the US, possibly in the DC area? If so, rock on karl. Excellent "pool of darkness" affect in the large panel.
I dont read the bible. Or watch anime. Both suck. (why do I get the feeling that people will jump down my throat for that statement?). That being said, Ghost in the Shell was good, and Princess Mononoke was visually beautiful. So was akira... but akira really wasnt all that good. God damn anime watching otaku freaks.
