I read the original Makeshift Miracle about a decade ago (it was the very first webcomic I ever read) and randomly stumbled upon this new version while thinking about it. I'll definitely be giving this a read. :) The first page reminds me of the early sketches you made before you started the original comic online. If I may ask, what inspired you to have the comic redone?

Ironic. In my youth, I read of the Makeshift Miracle and the title always stuck in my head. Today, I finally look in on it, and the story starts in a train station, like my own story.

I'm just the writer on this story, not the artist. I'm obviously thrilled with the watercolour work Hong is doing on it though.

I know how to read Jim, thank you :p.
He does some absolutely crazy work with watercolors. It is mindblowing.
Noticed it'll be on sale in april. I simply MUST get a copy :o!

Sorry, I wasn't trying to be insulting. You would not believe the number of people who comment that they like my artwork on it or ask me why it looks different from the other stuff in my gallery.

No apology needed man. It's crazy how people ignore the comments on DA. I've also gotten quite a few randoms telling me I draw great. Angsty young teenagers I tell you :p.

Awesome! :D I'll be waiting! You're a great writer by the way. I like how you point out a lot of things that happen all the time, but they're not necessarily good and no one really thinks about it unless someone points it out. There's like 3 lines I want to quote, already. :D

I will! (: My friends like this kind of stuff too. I've actually been showing them glimpses of the anime world since I'm the only one who's aware of it in our group, and this is perfect to get them to like it. :D

I really like the softness of this page, especially in the bird's wings. It's sort of peaceful, even though the character seems to realize he's lost his way...

Thanks. We're going for a story that slowly builds atmosphere before some of the big plot payoffs, so you've got the mood we're going for just right.
