    Ok, i have to comment now. I’ve read your comic so far. I love it very much !

    Except for the upcoming love between (or it,s already there) bewteen Rafa and Elan, I actually don’t know what’s going to happen. That’s a very good thing, and it keeps me reading. Your art has lots of charm, and I love how you draw smiles! And your focus on hands is very interesting. Rather delicate than just heavy smooching.

    The story has some very typical elements I think, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. i think it works very well. I’m eager to know what will happen! And what’s with the Governor? Not sure he’s bad or good.

    ‘Stricktly Dickly’! I enjoy very much the humour too!

      Thank you for commenting! Upon starting this I was actually more scared of the art part of it — I have WRITTEN many stories but this is the first time illustrating such a long story. So I stuck with what I knew – pencils and hands :) instead of ink or digital and anime.

      I do use some time-honored tropes – rich boy/poor boy, opposites attract, misunderstandings, etc. But I hope framed them into a story that isn’t very predictable. I think people will be surprised how particularly Elan grows but remains the kind person he always was.

      I first heard the term “strickly dickly” from a homophobic woman emphasizing her preference, which only maybe me suspect her more since she was so adamant about convincing everyone about that.

        Yeah, “strictly dickly” is something more commonly applied to straight women, but I suppose it works for gay men too.

        Yes, usually in the context of a homophobic straight woman rudely declining the advances of another woman. Most likely while hanging out in a gay bar ogling guys who aren’t interested in her lol.

        What I really enjoy is that so far we have the character Elan and how he interacts with the world itself. He is in a completely new and different environment but he learns to adapt and even influence the environment around him.

    Good line with the Stricktly Dickly. I haven’t heard that in years.
