Editorial Reviews

Comfort Love
"A Gaiman-esque fairy tale... You are bringing beauty to the world and we thank you for it"
Richard Vasseur
"This is an imaginative comic with new ideas that will stimulate you both visually and mentally."

"The town itself is a mystery. It has dark magic all around it. The town is populated with such a wonderful group of characters. Each is an individual you will want to know more about. All of these people on their own are great characters but together and in this town you will be drawn to them."
Thomas Morrison
"Way back in the beginning of 2009 I joined this web comic site, Smack Jeeves. I was checking out all the comics they were hosting. One comic really stood out from the rest. It was called the People that Melt in the Rain."
