http://artngame215.deviantart.com/art/Slum-Shoes-1-Cover-626501680 better to read there since this site's way of arranging a slide show photo album is difficult.

The art style, mainly the lines will be changed. And it will be in black and white by the second story. So please don't judge the artwork too much. I tried to go for a certain style but feel it didn't live up to what I expected. And coloring by myself takes too long.

Would a story that involves life in a slum and poverty be good for a Christian comic? What if there was violence later on? Not graphic but still implied? Would a comic like this be a good way to promote awareness of slum life in other countries? (Mainly Philippines since that's what the comic is based off of.)

I read much of it. I have no problem with style or coloring. I like it. My only critique was that it took a long time to get to the story. Long introduction explaining who everyone is. Sometimes one can allow the actual story to explain the characters as you go. Leaves a bit of mystery for people to want to find out more of who a character(s) is (are).

Thanks. Though I thought it would be a way to introduce some of the characters and their life. Though more details would be added later. Other characters will be added eventually, maybe with the most important parts of their life shown first.

Hey David, Read through the first story and I have some thoughts. 

1) I like the world you've created! Its exotic and different and detailed and easy to get immersed in; it reminds me of the comic Tintin by Herge. I sympathize with how much time you spend on the scenes; switching to black and white may save you time or may not.

2) Keep practicing with facial expressions on your characters, especially you protagonists. A wink or a grimace can make a visual connection with the reader and provide insight inside the character's head.

3) I'm ready for Chapter 2 , and seeing how our protagonist handles his first dilemma.

I've read some Tintin and plan to read more of it. Like Tintin, there will be some adventure elements. This setting is exotic since it's based off the Philippines. Btw, I did feel some of facial expressions were mostly off, since I feel I show emotion better when I draw by hand and not digitally.
