The latest comic update. 
Apologies for the poetry-pile.  Rocky has little restraint...or regard for structure, apparently.
The full comic can be read in the archive.

Wow, the art style of the first few panels looks so cool, almost like it was drawn on a scratchboard! I love how the blue light of the storm is gradually creeping into the background. It's an effective and ominous reminder that things are about to come to a head. Poor Rocky, though... I'm getting more and more concerned about him the longer this goes on. That vacant stare is super unsettling...

(Johnny Bravo voice) This won't end well.

Rocky's still driving a flaming truck, but this one's more metaphorical. That sewn-shut third-eye'd stare says much.

That top half is mindblowing! I love how it looks like an etching.  I'm in awe of those details you put in there and how the eye flows effortlessly through the panels in that water! :worship:

I really, really dig the black and white panels, very different and unique compared to the other comics. Skeleton Rocky looks so wicked, especially with the crack in his skull... oh boy.

... I can't tell a lie- Well, yes, I CAN tell a lie. I can tell a lie quite well, in fact. It's more like I SHAN'T tell a lie.

I'm getting sidetracked. The point is that Rocky's smile at the end creeps me right the fuck out.

Ok, by how it looks I think we can officially declare Rocky insane.

If seriously in the beginning I would never suspect that this character can turn into some kind of psychopath. Sure he was crazy but in a goofy way.

Rocky's expression in the last panel REALLY looks like Toga's from My Hero Academia. Just that slightly unhinged smile.

That poetry was stunning actually, love how it incorporated the water cycle. I also relate to Freckle here lol. And I think Rocky is a lil more touched than ever too.

I think rocky has something deeper inside him thats darker than what we may have previously suspected...
A bit of head trauma has shaken it closer to the surface

You're actually a really lovely poet btw, I enjoy whenever rocky waxes poetic

Your artwork continues to astound me!  The contrast present in the sepia tones is stunning, and I love the use of color here!  Now, I can understand the process of drawing the actual comic fairly well, as an artist myself, but the poetry has to be my favorite part--mostly because it is a skill I never quite got the hang of.  

The wording is very vivid and makes me wonder what poor, tortured state Rocky is currently in.  (He's been worrying me more than usual lately...)  I just have to ask, what's your process for writing poetry?  I'm just curious how you go about writing it and revising it when necessary.  

Thanks again for sharing your artwork with us!  I'm excited to see the next installment!  :D
