I'm up to date with the comic and had a BLAST reading it! The originality behind it, the pacing, the suspense, the artwork, and even the story itself all are extremely engaging. I'm very picky with graphic novels, for I prefer standard books, but Paradigm Shift truly is keeping me on the edge of my seat.
There are many things I appreciate, one of which is, as simple as it may be to some people, the detail and research you put into just a single scene in the story, or how closely you look at real wolf and human anatomy to really give Kate a feeling that she's a wolf, and not a werebear or some big muscly thing with a bunch of brown fur. The psychological aspect of all of the main characters is very well done, too. Staying on the subject of Kate herself, I strongly appreciate that what she's going through is more than 'oh if I get mad enough I'll transform', or just become some stereotypical 'emo' like I've seen so many times with supernatural/werewolf plot lines. Instead of making the werewolf her 'evil' or 'demon' side, the emphasis on how it's the more primitive bestial part of her is certainly a breath of fresh air, and the fact that she's slowly trying to accept it instead of getting rid of it... Very dynamic and deep.
You can really her struggle through Mike, too. It actually makes the characters interesting, giving readers the chance to feel sorry for these characters. I'm still on edge wondering what the hell is going to happen with with Bryant and the others, as well. I can't wait!
Thanks for the kind words. It's great to know the thought I'm putting into the story comes through in the reading. I definitely wanted to create a "realistic" take on the werewolf mythos and take it in a new direction. I'm very glad you appreciate the effort. Much obliged!
You're welcome. Sometimes people forget that even if a certain genre of the story is fictional, realism is key for it to be successful. Keep doing what you are doing, because the effort you are putting into Paradigm Shift is astounding.
Dear dirk, About your developing graphic novel the art is nice or as devil may cry character Dante may say stylish but the story well a bit extreme one of the detective a female one solving a mystery being a part of it Thats a bit extreme,You know you better finish the story quickly cause i have a new story idea that you may develop but not the paradigm shift webcomic,a different story and yes the mystery werewolf thing,yes the male and female detective type but a different story this time about a young orphaned and amnesiac male teenager who escaped from some evil capturers from an organisation for a reason,He needs help from the two detective to solve the mystery about who he is?,why he escaped from an evil organisation? and what made him turn into one of them a werewolf?,Oh the story might be rated in a game type E+12,and the amenisiac male teenager post transformation from his werewolf should have his clothes tattered.Because post transformation nudity is not good idea. and i think my new story development idea should be tamed after all since he is a teenager this story should be tamed a little violent also.That story might be similar to the one you made but with my idea.I ll show you the character developments( which is unlike your art style) which i will make later,And i hope you can send me a reply if you appreciate or not appreciate my idea
Okay suit yourself anyway but if youre done with that paradigm shift story use my idea as a project and what do you think of my idea? if you like it? ill send my designs of what it looks like and you can make the story of my idea as your new one with your artwith just a little credit
