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.

Thanks again, Alexandre! I brought her to Anime Boston this weekend, and people were really impressed with her. I did have to rig up a temporary top for her, though, for modesty.
