Some of the pages didn't come up properly (1, 3... and there was one other) but I still got the gist of it. Great story. The animal/rider thing was a great idea with huge potential. And I know some people don't like comparisons, but your work reminded me of Scott Morse's stuff. Simple. Clean. And who says you can't see the robot's emotions? A flat line tells bunches! Great stuff.

loved this story!
VERY clever idea of reading the meaning of life out a dictionary-
my favourite material is comedy / philosophy, and I've never come across that before!
it should be obvious, but it isn't, so you've made a very funny wake up call: hey,
no need to philosophise, it's right here! hahaha

hilarious dialogue between space girl and the talking balloon, loved it

I'm amazed by what great material is made in 24 hrs!

The back and forth dialogue was clever enough to hook me from the second page, but I am still glad you moved beyond the talking heads. My favourite part was solving the meaning of life. Simple, yet elegant... I can't believe I've wasted so much time when the answer was right there all along.

I was a bit thrown by how they could reverse the polarity of the neutron flow before they'd been returned to their proper dimensions, but I guess logic isn't always at the forefront of 24 hour comics.

And I too was going to say that the aliens looked familiar to me, but Caanan's hit the nail right on the head: they definitely reminded me of Scott Morse's Soulwind.

Haven's actually read Soulwind, I've got to say, but on the basis of this I'll check it out. I've liked Scott Morse's other stuff. But I was thinking more Arzach by Moebius.
