What do I like about the strip: The first thing you’ll notice is the awesome black and white art style. This strip is simply gorgeous to look at, and uses light and shadow along with heavy blacks and negative space, excellently. You can tell a lot of care was put into the renderings. The story is also very human and very relatable, and you really find yourself sympathizing with the hero, even when he doesn’t do the right thing. This story is very well-written
Why should YOU read it: If you’re a fan of precise linework and very human stories of love found and lost, you will like this strip.
