Piper's Pet FULL by nicholaskole Piper's Pet FULL by nicholaskole
So...there was a little problem with the Myspace Dark Horse Presents servers, and most of anyone who went there to see that this new comic I did for them was published saw an inverted yellow electric-boogaloo version and not the actual comic itself at all. But the lovely people at Dark Horse gave me permission to post it on the web myself, and so here it is, in it's correct colors (depending on your monitor) and it's full length! Piper's Pet!
I am really excited about this piece, even though it's just a small one. For me, it was a great way to cap off my RISD experience and a good comic to go out on. I hope some of you will enjoy it as well! Please let me know what you think!

Also up on my blog with more details:

UPDATE:
Phew! Wow!
That was awesome. I can't believe it: thanks SO MUCH to :iconalexds1: for recommending Piper as a DD and to :iconcedarseed: for making it happen! Thank all of YOU for your overwhelming amount of comments and favs! :D
It was my third ever DD, and it was the best. I'll be getting to replying to all your comments as soon as I can.
This more than makes up for this being illegible and yellow for a month!
Much love, guys!

This is so great and reminds me of when I was a kid... not that I got a cool huge fish, but I wanted a pet I could play with...poor fishies. Your colors make me so happy =)

awww this is sooo cute. It's amazing what you've been able to do with comics. I've even come to like the comics you make without text (A first for me since i usually think a strip isnt complete without text). You've managed to communicate so much in just a few snapshots. Brings tears to my eyes!

thanks so much! I try to be as clear with my storytelling as possible- it's a really good exercise to try and communicate without text!

Okay I'm still amazed... blown away... thrilled by your skill. Is there anything you try to keep in mind as you build these sequences? *I just died of the cute all over again* I'm such a big fan... so I'll try to keep the squee on the inside :P
