I read the first two chapters for my comment: :iconwriteandread: 
What I like in this comic is how very detailed the pictures are, we can see the details on human faces, clothes, the surrounding within the house, furniture and the nature outside the house. The art of pictures is amazingly well done also adding light and shades to the complete picture. 

Aside the caligraphy font in first pages that was hard to read I don't have anything else to notice about the improvment suggestions. Just keep the simple font so everybody can read it. 
The whole story gives a feeling like it is going to be a mystery connected to detective work; I wonder will drama elements and romance also be involved? 

What surprised me about characters is the sudden appearence of Ellli Oldfellow, who just pops out after, apperently being seen stalking Rosamond. He sends a letter to Dr.Glass and asks for a meeting while the doctor doesn't know who Elli even is and agrees to meet him? Calling a police should be more logical behavior here since he has been stalking after all, instead of letting such a stranger act like a doctor himself? Can he prove he is a doctor himself even? Getting on somebody's property without permission is still a crime. So if he wasn't hired to be here, it means he either has a personal interest in Rosamon, or he is hunting mysteries around the world for own interests? The sickness might be special but still accepting help from a stranger, who is a stalker also makes me question Dr.Glass's common sense for just including him like that. Elli might be a criminal as well or a psycho. 
What I would also want to know is, how is Mr.RockBurn related to Rosamond? Is he a family freind, relative, her financee...? And where are her parents in the whole story? We see servents around her but parents aren't mentioned.

Thank you for the review. :) I might change the hand lettering to a font for the printed version, as some people wanted hard copies. I'm glad the art is pleasing.

I wondered if I  made the doctor too easy-going, but not many people have mentioned that he should have notified the police. Rockburn's relationship to Rosamond is shown in the first few pages of chapter 3. And of course you find out more about Oldfellow later on.

Thank you for the time to read the two chapters. :D (Big Grin)

Color me intrigued! This seems like a fascinating story. :3 It's very atmospheric, but maybe you could push the shadows on her figure a little more? :3

It is quite possible that the shadow is not long enough.

The beginning is nice, it got me a little curious. :) So I'm gonna read the next page at least.
The use of strong shadows adds some mystery and creepiness to it. I like how the viewer gets a closer look at the main character panel by panel, I think that's a great way to introduce her. :)

Aw thanks for the compliments! I hope it catches your interest to read the whole thing. ;) The perspective panels idea came from an old manga called Lady Snow Blood, I think: if memory serves me right.

Nice! It really reminded me of the Neverending Nightmares game - probably because of the lines representing the shadows around the lantern Wink/Razz
