nicely paced actioner! Is this a part of a larger saga?

Thanks for your comment Xiaoli (Love your pencils!) I need feedback so any helps, even constructive criticisms.

And no it was supposed to be a one off story, but I had an idea in mind awhile ago which I have fully fleshed out, something I was hoping to self publish one day (ONE DAY) and it happened to have tied into that idea story nicely. So it is now! :D Thanks for looking.

Lovely work, you managed to get quite a lot of detail in there! It's always nice to see well-drawn action as well as some good facial and body expressions in the same comic.

I'm with Stik - hope to see more of your stuff around!

Have you been playing Resident Evil 4 lately, perchance?

Anyway, this was rad.

This was pretty cool.
It kinda reminded me of the Wildcard novels, but probably just because it's a super-hero-mutant-secret-agent thingy... I love those thingies...

Reckon you'll draw this one up properly at some point? Maybe make a run out of a series or something? I'd like to see more.

The layouts and action scenes on this were really well done especially given the time frame.

That was some great art, dialogue and story need some work but the art carried it along at a nice clip. I want more.

Geez guys thanks for all your comments I'm really blown away ^_^;;

Thanks gary! Seeing your work all those years ago actually inspired me to (eventually) self publishing something myself one day so thanks in that regards (I will defintely pursue it when I can).

To Ego, Suprisingly I wasn't that huge a fan of Images' stuff aside from artwork (when they all first formed image) but I did really enjoy Team 7 though (EDIT: Oops you said Wildcard.. thought you said WildCATS heh heh sorry). Most of my influences for this particular theme are generally anime though with a dash of US comics. Also I wouldn't mind drawing the rest of it properly but like Mark said, the story was so-so (I agree myself) but there's not much I could do to come up with something intricate enough with the time and pages I had left (car chase took more pages than I thought). But if I'll eventually try and publish something.

Just some chick: Thanks for that. I drew a lot of action scenes my whole life so I feel quite relaxed with those but I know I still need a bit of work with anatomy and "loosening" my characters a bit :P

Mconnollyz: Thanks for that. in all the little stories I've ever done and not finished, character interplay is always one of the most important things I like to implement. I'm kinda happy with what I formed with these two characters but it just wasn't wnought pages to do what I wanted but I guess that's what this 24 hour thing is about!

I had a blast and thanks again to everyone who enjoyed my work :)

PS That "horror movie" which defintely scared the life of this one particular character was actually "Flying High" lol

Nice entry there - good to see someone doing car-chases!! Don't be afraid to try some more dramatic camera angles for the high speed stuff (this advice I'm passing on from some well informed sources who've helped me out!) - movies such as 'Ronin' provide great inspiration there. Look forward to seeing more of your work and glad to see another 'action' comic in the comp!

I Agree!

Great comic - good pace and I like the shlocky gags (particularly the kipper ones) thrown in. I also really like the effectiveness of pencil with ink drawing the important bits. I wonder what these Alpha Agents will be up to next?
