Hi! It has been a REALLY long time since I posted on DW! Anyway, here is a part of a short story sample I made a few months ago. Any comments, critiques or whatever would be appreciated. If you want, you can also check out my social media links below.

As a note: the first 3 are in order and the 4th is just a random page that I like. Thanks for looking!

Love it. Has the potential to be a nice webcomic!

I can't put my finger on who this reminds me of, but looks great! This is Image quality, print ready work.

These are fantastic. You're a gifted storyteller. I love the Euro influence, clean and smart. Great gestures, environments, characters.

I want to read this. Is it online? Are you shopping it to publishers?

Matt, thank you! You can start reading all sixteen pages of the story (with words and colors) here: http://aaronpalsmeier.tumblr.com/post/111685308675/tales-of-great-ulricses-yool-rik-seez-a-mash-up Writing isn't my strong suit...yet, but I hope you enjoy it. I also have some other webcomics on that site too.

To be honest, I just wrote it as an experiment and to use as a sample at Cons and online. I'm not sure what else I could do with it.
