Another style evolution is evident: I discovered blambot.com, and you can tell because I used no less than four of their fonts on this page. They're just so good.
I'm quite impressed by the jumps in artwork quality over the last couple of pages. I'm still using a lot of gradients and lighting effects instead of drawing backgrounds, but we're getting there! We're really getting there!
I believe this is the last comic where meta-humor impacts the actual ongoings on the story, but I think this is a pretty creative use of it. I think it would be pretty easy for an amateur artist to overlook something like a gun trigger, and Stu exploits it. Mike, however, doesn't seem aware that the fourth wall has been broken.
