    Respecting the neighborhood and it’s existing structures is something we learned repeatedly in our travels. Also the eerie power of Cats to form relationships with useful people.
    Good story.

    This story pulled me in right away–I love it. I think I could read an entire graphic novel about Pearl and her domain…juxtaposed with the lives of you and your roommate. Great storytelling and imagery–love the last panel!

    awesome!!! i really like the second panel, especially the way the cat is hanging by one paw from your shoulder. hehe.

    Great story flow. The whole thing has a vague air of menace - kind of like the city in general. Dig it.

    This is great! I love everyone’s facial expressions. The last panel is my favorite.

    This is a fantastic story: down to Earth, kinda sad, and very funny. The pacing is top notch and the art has a natural and cartoonish quality that I like. Nice balancing act. I agree with Joan: I would love to read an entire book on Pearl and her life.

    The color made me feel like I’ve been staring at a Nintendo game for too long, which is apt cuz while reading “Pearl”, I sometimes felt like I was looking at the seedy city of Double Dragon or something.

    So touching! The colours are great, really reflects the lifestyle of the neighbourhood depicted. Love the way the words are written too. Edgy.

    Sad. Bright. Mysterious.

    Excellent story, with an unusual twist on the idea of a next-door “neighbor.” It actually says a lot about you and your roomie that instead of being freaked-out and scared by your homeless/drug-addicted neighbors, you went out of your way to befriend them.

    One nitpicky thing: I believe a female “bum” is officially known as a “bag lady.”

    The colors of this piece are bizarre and wonderful.

    The backend part of your company supports these profit centers.
    However Yahoo marketing and other pay per click search engines offer some excellent traffic
    at a more reasonable price. It’s probably some
    mix of the two, so I have to give him props for not going too far in either direction.

    They permit you to definitely do countless things, from web-searching to studying e -
    Books to doing offers; and all sorts of simultaneously if you wish to multi-task.
    Though setting up is more difficult that proxies, it’s still very
    easy, and once installed, running the VPN in the background is simple too.
