Nice and professional work!
Story is short, but it's like i have read a some long book of some old, classic writer.
(For some reason, this comic has this feeling ).
As for the ending - it wasn't shocking and heart-breaking for me, because i was expecting something like this from the start.
From the start, it has a tragic feeling...
Especially good thing was historical researches, author made - all this info about neolithic-Jordan valley-ancient civilizations... that was really interesting and i greatly respect that. It doesn't play any role in the story, though.
(By the way - woman has a very brazilian appearance!)
So - thanks to the author!
Very cool comic, I would love more adventures in the neolithic. :)
Oh! This was great, this was really great.
This comic reads super well as a PDF and I adored the pacing-- it was so easy to follow scene from scene and I loved seeing our mains here interact and get to know each other. The ending is shocking and heart breaking and really leaves your mind to fill in a ton of blanks (which I love in a story) and GOSH HEY I just loved this comic; thanks a ton for sharing it!
And as a last note; it would be great if you could leave a small content warning on this page? Nothing was particularly wild in this comic; but I believe some readers are sensitive to nudity/sex/violence so a sentence describing some of that stuff might be great in your description above-- if that's not too much trouble!
Really looking forward to anything else you might release here on Itchio~ Have an awesome day!
