Wednesday update

Thank you! You guys are way too nice. I really should start personalising replies...

Since this is also a page of nothing, I'll go shoot my mouth off now. A while ago I was thinking about changing the comic's name to "no dogs allowed". The url's was taken by then, though. And I wasn't so sure it was a good idea to change the title anyway. "June" is kind of a shit title - other than the town's name, I'm still trying to think of ways to encorporate it into the plot. Don't worry though, it's way too late for any changes like that.

Well, June is quick and simple--I don't mind it, and I'm quite fond of it, really. It does make me feel as though the story takes place in a month, though--and I kind of like that, it's got a bit of a nostalgic feel to it, because it invokes a time period most likely from our pasts, innocent on the surface but perhaps a lot darker underneath. ;) That, and the fact that June is a town feels like the town is somehow perpetually trapped in this one time period, which is always a concept that I've liked. It kinda pulls on whatever "June" means to the reader... hahaha don't mind my rambling, but yeah, I just--like it! :)
There's my ramble in return, hahah;; but ahhh, can't wait for more pages!

I guess someone wants to protect that beef stew in the fridge? Somehow this reminds me of a talisman to ward off evil--only they're coyotesons instead. xD

I personally love the title. :)

It's very memorable for the fact that it invokes a sense of calm and innocence, like Laitma said, but is contrasted with the surrealism of the story. It comes off as very short and sweet, and, somehow, nonsensical. I honestly think it adds intrigue because of this fact. No Dogs Allowed is also an awesome title, but it also seems a lot more forbidding, so when you click on the comic, you don't get the shock-factor of reading through a comic that is a lot darker and mysterious then it appears.

Am I making sense? Buh. It's good either way. >< If you ever decide to move this comic to its own website, then you can make the decision of changing its name. :) Hnnnngh. If this ever came out as a book, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

Not to disappoint you or anything, but if you changed the name, I'd still call it "June" when I refer to it. The name just works. Something in the subconscious just says it does. Hakuna matata, man. No worries.

When I first saw "June" I wasn't very sure about reading it or not. It had just 8 pages at the time, and for me, the title didn't said anything.
At the moment, I thought about the month, thought about how many cute and innocent things could this comic have, besides the well done, creepy banner.
"Let's read it" I tought. As I clicked the first page. Eight pages later, I already loved it.
Eight pages later, I realized what "June" was about. How it was deep and incredible... how the name was like the boy's sack head. It looks like something, but you don't really know what is hidden within it.

I sujest you don't change the name.
It's just perfect and fits the comic so well. I like. I hope you do too.

I, for one, love the title (its my birthday month >v<) but besides that, like the others have said, June fits fine, and it leaves a lot to be desired rather than no dogs allowed. June sends out more of a mixed message and I think would draw in more readers that way anyhow (maybe dog lovers may not want to read something called "No dogs allowed"?) but yeah. Verbal vomit. Have a nice day.
