Now has a part 2! Read it here!

----

And that’s all she wrote, folks. While I don’t truly believe Asriel blames anyone but himself for his frustration and disappointment, I can’t help but imagine that the part of him that still thinks like Flowey would be angry that having a soul didn’t immediately bring back all of his past happiness. Sorry, kiddo, but a soul won’t cure your parents’ relationship, or bring back your dead sibling. Bummer, I know :/

These last few pages contain some of my favourite (and not-so-favourite) panels, including some that were quite challenging but great learning experiences. If/when I do another comic, there are many things I would do differently, but overall I am pleased that this was a good experience and was worth the time I put into it.

If you would like to see more (and potentially longer?) projects like this in the future, please let me know! Thanks for reading, and I'd love to hear your feedback on this short exercise :)

YAAAAAAAY THANK YOU SO MUCH DUDE
I legit can't explain how much your comments meant, it's great to hear the thoughts of someone as they go through it on what stood out to them and what worked particularly well. It'll also help as I continue with part 2, since I have a better idea of what is visually appealing to others! I'm kinda hoping to use this to fast-track the learning process on How To Comic by just jumping right into it, so your thoughts are much appreciated.

Thank you so much for commenting dude!!! Made my day and is very inspiring La la la la La la la la 
I'm going to go start the next page with renewed vigour!

Ikr doing a comic came totally out of left field haha! I always wanted to put one together as a kid, and I'm glad I went for it. I still feel like I have a lot of learning to do, but this feel like a good start!

Thank you so much for the support!!!! It means so much aaaaaa <333

Hmm.  I rather like this story (despite being tragic TT^TT) what can I say, I like tragic stories ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I think your experience here with this story has given me some useful insight.
I had some plans of making a comic, but I think I had better start small so I can work out the kinks ('cause I have ZERO experience making a comic.  Besides, I really like the ideas I've come up with so far, and I'd hate to ruin it with inexperience XP

Thank you so much for all your comments! I love hearing people's thoughts ^-^

And woohoo! I'm glad you enjoyed it, and that you gained some insight from this! I would definitely recommend starting small and working your way up to bigger projects - I know if I had tried to do something longer right off the bat, I would have gotten overwhelmed into inaction. I'm definitely more prepared for whatever comes next.

If you ever decide to make a comic, please send it my way! I'd love to read it :)

Asriel, I know this may be hard for you. But you sometimes have to accept that things have changed over these past years since you and Chara...you know. And even if you come back, it won't alter what's happened. All you can do now is accept and try to find a way to deal with it. Sure, Toriel can't find it in herself to be with your father again, but that doesn't mean you can't visit him.

Also, this is one sad little comic. And thank you for writing it.

I don't find stuff like these so often. It's very unique. In fact, you may have given me the inspiration I needed for a story I'm working on in another site

Good idea to start with small projects before you get yourself caught in a big one. Still, I'd definitely love to see a continuation of this, youve got a lot to work with! At the same time, work on what makes you excited, thats what matters.

Thank you! I thought a shorter project might be a good place to start as well. Now everyone has me pondering a continuation of this haha... Maybe sometime in the future!

Wait, is this the end of the series?
Aw man. It’s so good. I can really relate to Asriel. Amazing job on this comic series

Thank you!!! I'm very very glad you liked it.

While this is where I had originally intended to leave it while I was planning this out, that does not mean I won't ever add another scene / continuation of this. It might be interesting to explore some of the relationships between other characters, but I'd have to give it some thought! Glad to hear there'd be interest in more, though :D

Thank you!

Don’t mention it.
Here’s sort of an idea.
Your thinking of relationships between characters.
What about sans or papyrus or undyne with asgore.
Just a thought. You don’t have to follow up on them

I do love Asgore as a character! I might have to give this a bit of thought.
Thank you for the suggestion!!

Oh my gosh I loved this!! This was such a well done comic!

I have a proposal...

I know this is your comic, so of course I understand if you decline my offer, but I was wondering if it'd be alright if I wrote an alternate ending to this. I write a lot of fanfiction, and I would love to explore another ending if you'd be alright with it :)

Again, I completely understand if you wouldn't want me to ^^

Yay, thank you so much for the compliment!

And yes, please do go ahead and write your own ending for it! I would love to see what you come up with!
Please shoot a link my way if/when you end up going for it, I'm hyped :)
