Haha, it's so weird going back to the beginning of a webcomic like that. That said, I remember reading the first two chapters a while back, and catching up makes me think this is a pretty cool project.

It reminds me of Watchmen in a weird way. The setup is kind of similar.

Haven't seen anything saying it would affect future chapters. I expect that if the first volume (chapter 1-4) is a success, then when they have another 200 pages ready to print they will think about doing another print collection, but that's just my speculation.

This is totally awesome. Strong Female Protagonist is one of those comics that when I read it, I though "This writing is TOO DAMN GOOD.Who the heck are these people?"

Nothing but goodwill for the creators.

You know, I wasn't too interested in the concept when I read this article. I'm not normally interested in female protagonists.

But then, for some reason, I decided to read one of the comics.

This is some excellent writing! The flashback style, the issues surrounding a super-powered being and their impact on the world around them... this is feminism at work, concepts that transcend gender. But, the specific approach to the protagonist allows for her to still be female, and to tackle some of these issues from her perspective, too. I like it.
