I really got sucked into this comic. I enjoyed the concept and the story and the writing.

And the art was excellent.

Frank Beddor
“For most of the universe's life is not all gummy wads and tarty tarts; is a struggle against hardship, unfairness, corruption, abuse, and adversity in all its guises, where even to survive - let alone survive with dignity - is heroic. To soldier through the days in the wake of failure is the courageous act of many.”
Frank Beddor, The Looking Glass Wars

“One should never save cake for later when it can be eaten now.”

“…there was a pattern to how things were done, rules we followed. Not following meant not knowing what might happen.”
