    Seriously, I wish I could see more of this. I'm not even nearly a remote fan of anything baseball-ish, but the artwork and creativity is so amazing I want more. I only came across this app, four years after its publication, because I was listening to a podcast interview with it's creator (paperwings). I get that this was a personal project created out of love and a partial insane drive to see something I think all kids wanted to see growing up...comic books that move like that in the Harry Potter movies/books. Long, long unpaid hours for such an obsession. I'm so glad for the work and that I can still come across it after so many years later. I hope this could be the gold standard of what is to become of story telling in the very near future. Thank you!

    Rich storytelling. So rich that there seems no way to really take it all in in one sitting. It begs to be re enjoyed every once in awhile. Besides fine art and animation surprises all over the place, the atmospheres and the voices took me into a new hybrid place which I would have wet my pants to experience in 1949 when I was into comics. Reading the book and listening to the radio drama at the same time, with animations on a screen in front of me. Here, all seamlessly bolted together. I sure hope the team finds the rewards in the immense load of work to keep going. First rate. Even if all the VO and animation seems too much. Just turn it off or don't touch the controls. Great stuff. More please. Soon. Please.

    Great effort from everyone involved. Great art. Great animation. Great atmosphere and tone overall. Very dynamic. But, clarity is the most important aspect when telling a story ... with or without bells and whistles. My first read-through required a little extra effort on my part, compared to other "great" works. However, this combination of old storytelling methods is something new. So, there are bound to be growing pains. I enjoyed it, and I'm along for the ride.
