Excellent. Great humor and artwork, fun themes and a dog's perspective. It's all incredibly well executed, with the varying artistic styles all fitting the tone of the writing.

I've been on a graphic novel kick recently, and this was definitely the most impressive thus far. An imaginative and mysterious sci-fi setting, an emotional protagonist and incredible watercolor artwork. Also, great cliff-hangers.

Denis Johnson
“She took my heat. Traded it to the devil for some bauble.”
Denis Johnson, Already Dead

Cormac McCarthy
“The night is quiet. Like a camp before battle. The city beset by a thing unknown and will it come from forest or sea? The murengers have walled the pale, the gates are shut, but lo the thing's inside and can you guess his shape? Where he's kept or what's the counter of his face? Is he a weaver, bloody shuttle shot through a time warp, a carder of souls from the world's nap? Or a hunter with hounds or do bone horses draw his dead cart through the streets and does he call his trade to each? Dear friend he is not to be dwelt upon for it is by just such wise that he's invited in”
Cormac McCarthy, Suttree

Jim Thompson
“When life attains a crisis, man’s focus narrows. […] The world becomes a stage of immediate concern, swept free of illusion.”
Jim Thompson, The Killer Inside Me

Denis Johnson
“Her midriff bare, like the denizen...of some pampering seraglio.”
Denis Johnson, Already Dead

Elmore Leonard
“Elmore Leonard's Ten Rules of Writing

1. Never open a book with weather.
2. Avoid prologues.
3. Never use a verb other than "said" to carry dialogue.
4. Never use an adverb to modify the verb "said”…he admonished gravely.
5. Keep your exclamation points under control. You are allowed no more than two or three per 100,000 words of prose.
6. Never use the words "suddenly" or "all hell broke loose."
7. Use regional dialect, patois, sparingly.
8. Avoid detailed descriptions of characters.
9. Don't go into great detail describing places and things.
10. Try to leave out the part that readers tend to skip.

My most important rule is one that sums up the 10.

If it sounds like writing, I rewrite it.”
Elmore Leonard
