Maybe this is the teacher in me, but I'm so glad that you call out creators on their typos and grammatical oversights. Comics is a multifaceted medium and writing is yet another skill you should hone when you create comics. In the university classroom, I'm ASTOUNDED at the number of students who will turn in scripts to me without having proofread their work. It's shameful. Thank you for making creators take responsibility for their writing.

(I'm not trying to single out SMPG, as I've seen you mention spelling/typo/grammar specifics on quite a few reviews...even mine. Ha-ha!)

Keep it up, Justin!

Thanks, Ryan. Yeah, in addition to just lending a more professional feel, it's always been a total pet peeve of mine. One of my old bosses used to sometimes say "you've just got to know the King's English."

Justin, once again, I have to commend you for reviewing my comics and pointing out these errors. It must be very tough to sift through this story with such glaring mistakes. As for the supposed poor and tired delivery of jokes, there is nothing more I can do than try harder the next time around. Fortunately, for myself, I don't just create comics based on feminine products.

Also, Ryan, thank you for not singling out SMPG.

Hey Daniel,

No problem. Like I mentioned, he's busted me before, too. :) I think Justin's eagle-eye for grammar, along with his intelligent dissection of plot points and narrative elements, can really help us creators in honing our craft. I'm glad to see another comic artist receive his valuable criticism in a constructive light.

Best of luck with all your comics projects, Daniel.

Hi Daniel,

Thanks again for stopping by. Don't be too hard on yourself; I love reading comics (even the ones with typos), so it's not *that* tough to endure. I compare it to eating pizza. Even the pizza that has some problems and isn't your favorite is still pretty fun to eat. ;-) I learn something from every comic I read, and I hope as a creator, that you learn something from every piece of criticism as well.

Ryan, thanks again for the kudos. If you guys, or any creators, are taking away something of value, then I feel that I've really done my job and accomplished part of what I set out to do.
