It is funny, I have been reading and re-reading this comic over the past couple of years. This including my adolescent boyhood, and you can imagine how I found this kind of comic all on your own. However, I have noted that every time I read it I find something else in either the characters, the locale, or the art style. In addition, the story telling feels extremely human, if I may use that term, especially in it's discussion about a topic that is still very much taboo. At least where general media is concerned. I also have to agree with Anne, since it is largely how I got into s/m, you see it once and it just festers in your mind, in a good way of course.
Love the comic, keep up your great work on Chapter 4 and beyond.
