I like the use of irony. The supposedly good God having fun tormenting the devil as moral clarity, the dispassionate Buddha as emotional depth, and Crim in his book fort oblivious to most of life as attention to detail. Although I guess Monique didn't specify which details.

About the only thing that is what she says it is, is Slick's reaction to her ass.


Edit: additional thought. Haven't we all been there? Felt like something was missing and we ain't ourselves? Wonder if Tat's feeling that?

The overall progression of the strip is rather nice. =D

I like the 'moral clarity' panel, its extremely 2-D in comparison to the others and the background is very interesting.

And I really like the 'attention to detail' panel. Hee hee.

And it's the only one that uses plainly black-and-white (including the background texturing) rather than shades of grey - suggesting things about the nature of moral clarity, I guess. Another words/images contrast.

Crim has a Hunter S Thompson book in his stack, FTW!

You don't know that. Maybe it's a muppet biography.

I think this is one of my favorite. Neat message and very awesome technique. I really like the moral clarity panel with the black and white only bit. I also like the color scheme on the perspective panel.

And of course, the last panel is win.

How terribly clever this strip is. Not does it work morally and thoughtfully in and of itself, but the metahumor is brilliant.

For those who missed it:
Moral Clarity - represented by only using black and white
Emotional Depth - represented by objects in the foreground/background
Perspective - represented by an interesting view of the cityscape
Intensity - represented by the bright colors
And finally, Attention to Detail - represented by... detailing...

This is certainly one of the better strips I have ever seen Mr. Ishida do.

I like this comic from a technical point-of-view.

Me too.

A really neat and clever strip all around, though.

I like the technical aspect of the comic,
but I also like the (possibly unintended) message of the comic.

It's that most of us keep looking for something, for that missing thing, but in reality we got it all.

And the fact that it's emphasised by being in a round 'box' which helps it stand out from the rest of the strip. You get a good overall impression of this one if you go to View Image and then scale it so you can see the whole thing at once.

What's missing is the butt crack you're
supposed to see from someone in tight
pants while in that sort of sitting position,
I think.
