Shelves: 5-star, freebie
Very cool concept & the digital animation was awesome. My only niggle was the end felt a bit rushed - not in quality, just wrapped up when there was still story that could be told. It seemed like maybe the artist no longer had the time to devote to it, which is understandable because it looks like a lot of work to produce something this good. I'm just thankful that it wasn't left unfinished like so many online freebies.

Online Comic.

The CUTEST dystopia imaginable!
Short, chubby and shy Vinnie and Galvin the big softie he has a crush on. Based in a world where talk is anything but cheap.

The art is very good, the comic is digitally animated so every 'page' is a click through event. It has endearing characters, humour, and a sprinkling of nudity - sex scenes are tastefully done.

It's in-progress, the story is interesting and I'm enjoying it immensely.

Well, this is different from the other web comics I read -- it has interactive animation. I gave it four stars for now as I've not gotten far into the story yet but so far the graphics are nifty and the characters fun! Its set in a world where you have to buy and pay credits for social interaction. The MC is a short, chubby guy and his love interest a bigger fella. That's all I know for now but its fun.

This was a very very cute webcomic with a really good story, it's a tiny bit NSFW but nothing really graphic. It wasn't that long but I loved all the characters so much they were all so kind and sweet. The animation was incredible and the work the artist/author put into it was astounding for a free webcomic. I hope they keep producing more LGBT content like this because it is easily one of my favorites.
