It's beautiful. I have to say, it reminds me of a videogame. Like an isomorphic RPG. The panel where Jonas steps out of the schoolhouse and is immediately greeted by the other kid. The whole last day of school / last day of normalcy framing. Of course that device is older than videogames. . . .

. . . It may just be that everything affecting reminds me of a videogame.

I love love love this so far.

Is there a schedule for more chapters?

I really like the use of scrolling. Very nice so far.

Oh, christ, another year?

This isn't a full time job?

He doesn't have a kickstarter page?

Someone needs to remedy this, so I can give him money.

This is lovely. I wish there was a way to make it full-screen.

The layout is fantastic. I don't think I've seen a webcomic that uses the format so well without being gimmicky. Most of them treat it the same as a regular page or make you scroll sideways for no real reason. The art is fine, too, but the dialogue is abysmal.

I don't need to add yet another webcomic to my list, but this one is just so beautiful.

Download chrome, press ctrl-shift and F.

F11 is full screen toggle in most browsers.

This comic seems promising. Too bad there's just one chapter so far. I've subscribed to the RSS and will keep an eye on it.

I didn't expect the scrolling down thing to work, but the transitions are phenomenally beautiful and well done!

Jonas (the young boy in the story) first appeared in these drawings by Lieske a few years ago.
