@Oly-RRR: it's funny that you mention witch burnings, as that is exactly what is coming up on the next page. you're always picking up what i'm putting down, oly.

as for your mom's books, i would nnnnnot be surprised if they got chucked. :/ it's crazy how heavily tailored the inside of a hospital is.

THAT SAD WOLF DUDE ;A; Wasn't it the anniversary of first witch burnings in the UK this week? Most of history is one big sad lesson people in charge never seem to take. At least they don't burn witches any more (in first world at least).

And those sad mostly empty bookshelves reminded me of a thing: my mum donated a bunch of books to my psych hospital and last time I was on the ward I coudln't see ANY of those anywhere, the shelves were mostly older books and and entire shelf was just religious stuff (and uh, I'm wording it without trying to offend anyone but let's just say it was ONE particular religion). Though to be fair maybe those books were there but in not so obvious places, it's not like I was in a mood for a book hunt.

Anyway, always enjoying how detailed the world of Recoil is. Keep up the good job. <3

@Oly-RRR: yeah i know right?? one time i had like 2 blood tests within days of each other because 2 different facilities wanted them, it's excessive

I ~sort of~ understand the idea of doing blood tests when a person is being treated for unrelated mental issues but I'm afraid of needles and this GETS TO ME SO MUCH. They want your blood EVERY BLOODY TIME. Come on, let's already settle on my problems being in my head, how long can it take??

Moaning about mental health services aside, I adore the noodlekid. <3

@animusosity : wow, really? what the hell possessed you to leave such a nasty, unneeded comment? i get not liking something, and it's fine if it's not to your tastes, but there is absolutely NO reason to tell that to someone in this way. the ONLY possible thing this will gain is making the creator feel bad, which is a pretty awful thing to do??

a helpful tip for the next time you're thinking of leaving a comment like this: DON'T.

@animusosity : i have absolutely no idea what kind of person you must be to leave a comment like this?? if you dont enjoy something, leave and carry on with your day. this is the kind of thing you keep to yourself, not callously say to a creator.

@animusosity : wow, this is one of the rudest things I have ever come across. Have you ever heard the phrase "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all?" If a friend recommended it to you, maybe you should reserve your rude comments for them, or if you do feel an overwhelming need to tell a creator you don't enjoy their work, at least be constructive.

I really wanted to like this
A mutual of mine from twitter showed this to me and I was initially very interested, Recoil looked like it had everything I wanted in a comic! I was pretty excited. It looked like it had a lot of potential, and after an initial read I feel it does indeed have potential but there are a few glaring flaws that keep me from getting immersed and I believe will keep it from breaking into the "mainstream" (something like Ava's Demon kind of mainstream).

Firstly the art style is very... It's not bad, there is obvious artistic skill, but it is just not appealing? It's not aesthetically pleasing and looks to me like the cartoons you see now-a-days that don't look good almost on purpose. I feel like this is a massive roadblock, as art style is 50% of the draw to a comic, we eat with our eyes first and I could see people who would enjoy the story probably pass it up due to the design. The characters come off as not really cartoony but not realistic and are sitting in this middle-ground of meh or downright 'ugly'. Actually the cutest art is when the characters go into an offmodel state, I particularly love the offmodel chibi cute Kalo on page 40.

The pacing is another problem. I can tell this has a big story to tell and is going for the long game but the problem with that is it can easily burn out anyone's interest. At best it feels unfulfilling to read and at worst it is a downright slog. Which is a shame with such a neat premise. It's very thick to get into and not very new reader friendly.
The writing also feels a little juvenile, again, it has a very nice premise and seems like there is a story here to tell but whether or not it's a good one still isn't clear. Is this story going to be new and interesting enough to become something? Or is it going to be a cliche storm? I might keep checking on it to see if something blows my mind but right now everything feels very middle of the road.

I didn't come here to rain on your parade, I came here with the intention to enjoy something but was left with a blandness in my mouth. You obviously have potential and perhaps practice and growth will turn this comic into something great.
