It can be seen that I don't know jack about making comics, so I'd be thanful for constructive criticism in the vein of "choose a color palette and stick with it/make speech bubbles bigger/etc".

That one scene from near the beginning of Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman's "Good Omens", where the low-ranking demon Crowley is saddled with the Antichrist.

I like the art style.
...But for some odd reason, every time I read that rainbow colored bit, I feel like he's singing the words with 70s music in the background.

Oh, nothing's wrong with it. Just wondered if I was the only one.
To be honest, I kind of enjoy it. I started bobbing my head to the imaginary singing.

Ah, I love this book! I'm so glad to see a comic of it :) I really like your style. The layout of the comic is brilliant. Sorry, but have you ever read the comic 'Hanna is not a boy's name'? Your style reminds me a bit of the author's.

Yes, I have! Actually, the note on the last page of the comic says that I lifted the style straight out of there.

Looking at these again, and I know you SAY you know jack about comics, but for jack these are really very good. I've seen this scene as a comic a couple of times and yours is my favorite. For the tone and for the little nonverbal things like Crowley's untucked shirt on this page and the hand gestures on page 3. Especially those hand gestures. Somehow that really feels like the visual answer to the style the book is written in.

Wow thanks =)
The hand gestures were me thinking "Hmm how can I be uber-lazy and not draw faces and torsos here?" So it wasn't me being creative or anything.

This is awesome! I love your slick style, especially the silhouetted bits, and Crowley's untucked shirt just makes me giggle.

Some of the speech bubbles are a little hard to read, but I've also got poor vision. Perhaps slightly larger font, or one that's more readable when very tiny? It's good to take into consideration folks that might not have perfect vision when selecting your text appearance. Other than that, it looks good. I like your use of size change for Crowley's little "heh" at the end there.

As for the color palette, I don't really see the problem here. I think it looks good, the way you switch between a bluish nighttime scheme, the "normal" palette, and the funky pastel rainbow thing you've got going on in the middle. If you wanted it to look more unified, you could maybe stick to the nighttime colors, but that doesn't seem nearly as interesting. ;)

This is a promising start! I love Good Omens, and to see it in some kind of comic form is really exciting! I'll be sure to keep an eye out for more! *runs off to look at the other pages*

The speech bubbles were probably one of my main concerns, and I don't think your vision has much to do with their unreadable-ness. I first drew everything in humongous resolution and when I resized it, the lettering was way too small. I think it's better on the two othe pages, but I can't be sure.

As for the silhouettes, they were a bit of a cop-out because they're way easier to draw than the proper pictures and the end result often looks nicer =)

Thanks for the advice and for the compliment on the coloring -)

Ah, I've had that very same problem with my comics. You'd think I would know better, especially since I wind up being unable to read my own work, lol!

Eh, cop-out or not, I think they're a good design choice. Go with it. ;)

You're very welcome!

I'm not gonna be changing it since I don't like to redo finished stuff. Because I'm lazy like that =)
Even so, I'll be trying for better layouting/lettering the next time I draw a comic.
