I just discovered your comic (and artwork) and love it. It's well written and well drawn. (Of course, you don't need me to tell you that. :) (Smile)) I do have a few questions that will help me understand the plot line better. (I did read the F.A.Q., these questions are just a furtherance on it.)

These animals seem to be very savvy on the use of complex machines and must have a much higher level of intelligence than regular animals. You said that this complex was a former research facility. Does that mean that the inhabitants are genetically modified research animals? That is, modified for tool using and the higher intelligence to understand how to utilize tools and materials to build things.

(On another note I once wrote a story with this in concept. The animals in question were common domestic cats engineered with near human intelligence. They had larger craniums to support their larger intelligence, larger bodies and hearts to support the weight of the larger heads, and increased heart capacity to supply the larger brains with blood, and the front paws were modified to allow tool usage. [Not too great a stretch of the imagination, my own can turn on and off my TV and computer, and turn door knobs with his "kitty hands", as my daughter calls them.] In the story I called the cats "Smartkats(R)" =P (Razz))

Now that I'm hooked on the story line, I eagerly look forward to the next installment of your comic. (Arrggh! Anticipation! :squee:)

Thank you for the kind words! I'm glad that you enjoyed the comic. I certainly have a lot of fun working on it, and I'm so happy to get the time to work on pages again after a six month hiatus. :)

Some of the animals certainly would be genetically modified, but not all of them. It would depend on the species and the nature of the particular research projects that were on-going at the time that the facility was hastily abandoned. Most of the tigers, for example, would have been part of an endangered species conservation project, and the genetic make-up of those animals would have been altered very little (if at all). The rats, on the other hand, would show a vast array of different genetics, both modified naturally and artificially, since they would have been used in diverse types of research. And, of course, since resources and territories are scarce in the facility, only the strongest and smartest animals would survive to reproduce. With creatures from all over the world thrown together, I imagine it would be quickly evolve or die out... artificially enforced punctuated equilibrium.

Oh my gosh, your cat sounds adorable! I love your concept of engineered cats. Do you have your story posted online anywhere? I would like to give it a read sometime.

If you're interested in intelligent cat literature, I recommend the work of Clare Bell in her Ratha series (she even has an account here on DA: rathacat). Her prehistoric cat species (the Named) is not genetically engineered, but rather evolved intelligence. Still, their history, evolution, and cultural/physical adaptations as an intelligent species are very thoughtfully researched and presented.

Your mention of the Ratha series tinkles a bell somewhere deep within the quagmire that is my mind. I'll have to check out her page once I finish this.

I'm flattered you want to read some of my work, but unfortunately, I don't have any of my stories online yet. Mostly because none of them are finished yet. I envy authors that can effortlessly turn out a dozen books a year. I've been writing these books for years and have yet to come up with adequate conclusions for them. My usual writing style is work on the books for a few hours to a few days, walk away for six months to a year, repeat ad nauseum. (Of course, my severe ADD might something to do with that.):( (Sad) 

The cats I spoke of are mentioned only as part of the engineering history of the primary characters. I mention them in the rather lengthy description of my drawing "Slave Auction". zagzagel.deviantart.com/art/Sl…

If you really want to read some of my work I can send you a few chapters, just tell me where. (Only a few chapters since all of books are at over 300 pages and I don't think you want all of that detritus cluttering up your inbox or wherever you want it sent.):-? (Confused)

Finally had the time to read your comic, and i totally got hooked. The storyline and characters are amazing and your coloring technique is very inspiring. Can't wait the story to continue La la la la 

Have you any plans of puplishing this when it's ready? I'd love to support your work by buying a copy :)

Thank you so much! I'm really glad that you enjoyed the comic. I have loved working on it so much. I'm hoping to get back to it very soon... sadly, I had to take a hiatus for a while, since my hubby and I were moving from Canada to the United States. Travelling, finding a new home, moving all of our goods, and finding new jobs unfortunately hasn't left a lot of time for (non-essential) artwork! I'm hoping that will change once I get the rest of my commissions finished, though. :)

I don't have any plans to publish just yet, but it's certainly something I would be interested in looking into once the comic is finished! I'll keep you updated, and thank you so much for the support. :heart:

Oh, i totally understand you being busy. Regular life sometimes  tends to distract the fun parts (mainly drawing :D). Hope you find/have found a nice place and are settling in well :) Moving is so exciting and yet super tiring at the same time.

Wishing you all the best (and definitely happy to hear news about the comic ^^).

I thought this comic didn't have words in it? Or did I just miss that?

Illustrations are used in lieu of (English) text when characters can't speak or understand one anothers' language, to simulate them communicating with body language, scents, vocalizations, etc. When they understand one anothers' language (or are speaking the same language), it is written in English. The rat and tiger have been together long enough that they understand most of each others' speech.

The characters are beginning to understand one another and communicate on a better level than they could, before.  So on the contrary, this comic didn't have words in the beginning, but we got to see a sort of language develop over time~

Thanks, I'm glad that you've enjoyed it! I apologize for the long wait between recent pages. I've been really busy trying to get my owed art (commissions and prizes) finished. I'm almost done now, though, so hopefully subsequent pages will be completed in a more timely manner. :)

Heh, unfortunately, I haven't been able to update it much in the last few months. I am trying to get all of my owed art (contest prizes and commissions) out of the way first. But I am hoping to have those completed in another two weeks, so hopefully I will be able to work on the comic again after that. :)
