My first comic book and hoping for some critiques. "CHEEK INC. ISSUE 1" (SOME MATURE CONTENT)

So for my graduate exhibition to earn my Associate's Degree I created a comic book using characters I came up with over 20 years ago. I got alot of positive feedback from friends, family and fellow students but was hoping to see what the general public thinks of my work. Below is a complete comic that started with hand-drawn and inked images on paper then scanned into Photoshop for coloring and effects. Tell me what you think!

Well welcome to hubpages. This is very good, but the overall story is a little to gruesome for the majority of comic-readers. Since you asked for opinions well I'll give you mine. The word baloons and panels need better placement because they land directly on the artwork in the panels. Pick up a book on sequential story telling this will help your comic and make your style flow better. Practice on your anatomy and perception. Overall this is very good and I applaud your efforts. Keep it up.

Thanks for the comments. I completely agree on especially the word balloons. I didnt even think about their placement until after the artwork was done so i ran into some problems.

The "POO-POW" sound effect made me laugh. :)

As a fellow (mostly former) artist I totally appreciate the amount of work that went into this. The storyline and gruesomeness is out of my style but a lot of people would like this. My main advice is to work more on human anatomy (join the club), but I liked the coloring in the wrestling match. Your style would be great with halftones. Oh, and maybe make the cover pop more. Great job. Like the others say, keep it up!

Feedback? Here's a small snippet, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Absolutely-freakin'-BRILLIANT! Never have I seen a comic book like this! I've got to do a review Hub on it.

May I use some of the pictures (with your permissions) to do so? ^^
