I just finished reading through the archives in one sitting. Good luck with your life outside of Bygones Be.
Hi I just finished reading through the archives. I'll definitely keep an eye out for anything you do in the future.
Hi, I just finished reading the whole thing!

I think my favorite part of IGMBDH is that the story never devolved into the main characters punching bad guys.

It is quite often that I hear a story about superhumans described as "character-driven" or "about the people behind the masks." Yet, almost always, comics with superhumans turn into a race to see how the supers we like will stop the supers we don't like, usually with a bunch of fighting. The emotional development of the main characters and their relationships are, at best, playing second-fiddle to fighting the bad guys.

In this comic, though, the protagonists and their relationships ARE the story. There is no antagonist, and there doesn't need to be one.

If you ever write another comic, I'll make sure to read it.
Nice ending, looking forwards to seeing what happens in the next chapter.
End of the first chapter since I started reading TPOH. Well done, and take all the time you need for a hiatus.

So Oculi is involved with the inter-gang conflicts, and Unity knows about them. Not really a big surprise, but now it's confirmed. I'm guessing that Jonas will be working against Robert's gang, but what he's trying to accomplish is still a mystery to me.

I'm curious, do you mind sharing what the characters' orientations are?

Hi, I just finished reading through the archives! I'm excited to see where this story goes from here.

I'm also curious: Is Marty ace, but biromantic? He said he was bi in the Q&A, but you said he was ace in one of the comments early on.

Yaaaa!
Hi y'all! I just finished binge-reading this comic in two days. It hits pretty close to home with me, given some past traumatic experiences I've had. I look forward to seeing where things will go from here.
Caught up
Woo! I'm finally caught up with Gloomverse!
Abraham/Abby
@Minim:
In [url=https://sisterclaire.com/]Sister Claire[/url], another webcomic I follow, one of the characters is a woman named Abraham, and her name is sometimes shortened to Abby.
Lightning
Of course Drew is lightning. He is clearly super effective against Ky, and Ky, being fluid, is obviously Water-typed. Rain is also Water, of course.
Recommendations
@LittleLynn84:
Awhile back I was thinking about difficulties Rain would have applying to college. I've seen many trans people go through the application process, but I don't know anyone who's had to do it while hiding the fact that they were trans from their high school.

Most colleges nowadays will ask applicants for their preferred name and gender identity, but they [i]also[/i] ask for your legal name and legal sex, and Rain hasn't changed hers yet. That might make the process of getting letters of recommendations from teachers tricky, since she can't ask someone to write a letter of recommendation for her deadname without them realizing she's trans.

But then I realized that, as she transferred schools for senior year, it would probably make more sense to get at least one recommendation from a teacher from her old school. Plus, Brother Arthur would probably write a recommendation for Rain.


Once she's actually [i]in[/i] to college, things will get a lot easier for her. Most schools would let her change the name she's enrolled under even before she legally changes her name. That's important, because the name you are enrolled under is seen both by instructors looking at their class rosters and by anyone who receives and email from your college email account.

Big universities that can afford it also usually have some gender-inclusive housing aimed at trans and enby students, which could help Rain make sure she doesn't get stuck with a transphobic roommate.
@Vicky_Michelle:
Since they're speaking, Vincent probably can't hear the difference between "Vi" and "V." Even if he could, both of them are valid shortenings of both Vincent and Vivian.
Yep
@Corrin:
Yep, every comment of every page of all three sites. Although I made a majority of my comments on ComicFury, since that was the site on which I first read the comic.

You aren't the first one to point out the obstacle transphobic parents can pose for someone who wants to buy this comic (at least one trans reader reported that their parents were monitoring their mail, and so they wouldn't be able to get the books without them finding out). Unfortunately, going digital won't necessarily solve your problem: if you are under 18, your dad could probably find out about any electronic purchase you make with a credit or debit card.

Nevertheless, digital sales could still open up new avenues for you to read it safely. For example, you might be able to get a friend you trust to buy the hypothetical PDF, and you could pay them back in cash. Then, your friend could send you the file, and keeping a PDF hidden from parents is a LOT easier than keeping a printed book hidden.

I hope you are able to get into a less hostile living environment in the nearish future.
