I'm blown away by the confidence with which you seem to have approached colour -- there's some really bold choices in here and I like them a lot. It think it works better on some pages than others, but the overall effect is gorgeous, and the organic shapes blend from abstract to representational and back again until I start to sound like an art critic. I agree with Tsumi, you could frame all of these and they would work fabulously displayed alone or together.

The only criticism I have is that the text seems out of place. Partly that's the font and partly that it doesn't blend down into the images, so it appears floating on top. But this is 24hour comics! My comic has a lame ending and the backgrounds vanish partway through. Yours is consistent. I'd be pretty happy with that :)

I'm intrigued by what media you're using here, and how you get it to look so ... damnit I don't want to say organic again. But it puts me in mind of coral, and the Mandelbrot set, and seafoam, and lichen etcetera. Also the sixties. Yup, definitely the sixties.

This got long. To conclude, I like it very much. Well done!
