THE WICKED LIE: PART ONE  


Comments are much appreciated. Thank you.


But the last time I had felt it was enough for me
to know it as a patented feeling that belongs to only one name

O___O Impressing!
I love Sin City sooooooooo much and your idea makes me love it even more!
The pictures look amazing! (I love the SC black/white style >-<)~
I so am looking forward to the next bunch *dreamy sigh*

Two words: I love it.

I thought that I'd just take a short look, and then read it again later on when I have more time. But then I got stuck from the first word and couldn't let go before I was done with the whole thing. And I need more! I mean it, I'm addicted already x) It's everything, drawn prettily, written prettily, and most of all, addicting as hell. And I can't help but to be completely amazed by your talent.

haha, do I sound a tiny bit incoherent right now? XD Gosh.

drop dead gorgeous art!

can't wait for more!

Well, I do not think I have to say MUCH about it anymore, but I absolutey adore it and the way its drawn. Oh my gosh, I though such great artists nearly disappread. For god's sake, the one of Die-the-redhead is definitely one of the greatest pics I've ever seen - in any damn way.
Very interesting, very well done, you just did SUCH a great job here. I'm anxious to get some more, definitely.(And the bar made me smile - Kadies*giggles* I love injokes like that ^_~)

I was thinking about this last night, and how much I was looking forward to an update on it. I go on today... and YES!!!

This is awesome. The art is beautiful, and the atmosphere created is great.

I love you guys :)

Mmm, do that old-school comics thing, baby. Hey, and never be stingy with that text! ♥ We won't complain, not when everything is so *shiny*.

Wow.
I'd been resisting the impulse to drop by, afraid I'd not like it. I was wrong. This is fantastic. Fan-bloody-tastic. I like everything: the character designs, the atmosphere, the layout...

Yeesh. This is very, very, very good stuff. Lots of work and talent. Thank you.

This is beautiful and I'm just speechless. I'm constantly amazed by your talents as individual artists/writers and seeing it all come together to create this wonderful, fantastic art..!

I admit I was apprehensive, reading the teaser because it seems like a very ambitious project. But from what I've seen of you girls involved in this project is that you have a strong vision, and you always execute it perfectly. This is no exception.

I love the attention to detail, the contrast of the colors, and the red bands on both Kaoru and Die's wrists are very striking and everything is so vivid. I didn't even mind that one part of pure text because the writing is gorgeous; you try your best to write in the noir style and you executed it so well.

I like Kaoru's voice here a lot, he has a very engaging mind, an almost dry, exhausted, bored tone of seeing at the world yet he captures minute details well. I get the impression that he went through a lot as a cop and it might have affected his view of the world. He seemed pessimistic, cold and jaded, but then as always, his confidence shatters at the sight of Die.

And of course, Die. I love the color of red, how stark it is against the surroundings. They always say that people who choose to wear red choose to stand out, in Die's case he stands out because he's made for the limelight. I especially like the descriptions of Die:

I remember those eyes, dark and feral, eyes that could see through you and strip out of your secrets without revealing any of his....

That smile that could turn men's hearts to water, even as he cuts them down.


Chilling. It hints a lot on Kaoru's mysterious past with Die, and it really raises my curiosity.

Note that I really like the variations of Die's coloring. When he captured Kaoru's eyes and made him remember how Die transfixes him and people around him, we're transported him back with Kaoru to his past, his hair is a strong, fiery red. But later on the next panels, his hair is black again to show that Kaoru is seeing Die in the present. But Die still shines regardless.

What else. Oh yes, I love 'Kadies'. Brilliant.

I'm sorry for the long review, but I don't think I was able to fully express how utterly dumbfounded I was when I first saw this. This is fantastic and a truly brilliant piece of art, and I don't see this enough in this fandom. Kudos, and I can't wait for the next part!

I just woke up so I'm incoherent.

But HOLY SHIT to see all the pages put in order, this is beautiful, wtf, BEAUTIFUL. I'm commenting on our own project, yes, because it's blowing the fucking creators away it's so damn awesome. And Die still kills me. @_@

T_T I love you Jeny.
Adrienne: kaoru { pondering } music & peopledecadentrebel on January 28th, 2007 10:50 pm (UTC)
I know, he kills me too. *___* Kaoru, especially. He slays me. Slays me and riddles me with bullet holes and I'm left bleeding. He makes me feel so worthless with his awesomeness. *___*

And I love you. And Mirella. And Jeny, a hundred times as well. GAH. You ladies rock. \m/

oh my gosh, this is even far better than I had expected after seeing the teaser some time ago! honestly, I'm speechless. what a beautiful piece of art! can't wait for more... ^^
Celine.: amanofreezing_orchid on January 28th, 2007 11:51 pm (UTC)
Breathtaking. *_* Well-worth the wait!

I'm so hooked.

And I see that red thread on Die and Kaoru's wrist. ;)
L'il Skooter Johanssenselbsportrait_a on January 28th, 2007 11:57 pm (UTC)
omg, that last picture of Die. Eeee, so pretty! And their red bracelets are TOTAL LOVE even though I have no clue what the significance is. *is thick*

I loved it. Very very cool idea and well executed. *hearts*

Oh my god.
This is totally amazing. *_*
lunianaluniana on January 29th, 2007 12:59 am (UTC)
*mewls* This is gorgeous, and expertly done. I agree with Fonulyn, I was going to save it for later (when I'm not sitting in the staff room surrounded by nosy teachers that LOVE looking over my shoulder) but I just couldn't! Its an amazing project, I'm absolutely hooked, and envious. ^__~ Keep it up, please!
薫: Vegas.birkenau on January 29th, 2007 01:19 am (UTC)

You guys have got a great idea going and, you've got me hooked. I can't wait for the next part.

I was wondering why this community had no entries for so long. Now I know what took so long XD

It was worth it though, I love this. I can't wait for more... episodes? Issues? Chapters? Updates, I'll go with that.
undead_sadist on January 29th, 2007 03:44 am (UTC)
Oh wow... that's simply breathtaking.

Yayyyyyy I think we're getting new DxK shippers too. :D.
Gengaoruzomboid_milk on January 29th, 2007 07:26 am (UTC)
You are, I never even thought about pairing Die and Kaoru before. But when I saw the communities on LJ, I liked what I saw, and when I saw the quality of writing of some of the regular authors I was impressed. Now it's one of my favorite pairings.

...*dead*

This is the first time I've wanted to ravish a cartoon character in years. First Kaoru comes in all sullen and broody with hoody eyes, and then BAM. There's Die SHOWING STOMACH. HOMG. You're killing me x_x Their red bracelets are just like finding out about their matching hand tattoos again - my heart jumps up and down and my brain screams, "YES! IT'S FATE!"

I hope you don't decide to start charging to see this because I'm going to have one expensive addiction on my hands.

I'm so incoherent and I feel like I've abused my capslock D:
