I love sugar and lola you make a very real comic.. its lovely to read but it makes me cry almost every update

I think a lot of people would react the way Lola does - sometimes you just don't know what to say even if you want to be supportive. I think the reactions of the characters are very realistic.

honestly I really like this whole sequence, it feels natural and i appreciate it - also i just noticed how the lighting has gotten darker and darker over the course of these last few pages, it's good

is the schizophrenia the "condition" sugar's therapist/psychiatrist was talking about in her extra comic?
Nobody 14th Jul 2016, 10:34 PM
implicitly, yes.
you may have noticed sugar's therapist deliberately avoided naming any one illness. instead she speaks of it in such a way where she could easily say she was referring to bipolar disorder, despite the fact that it's odd to press a hard distinction between two mood disorders with similar risk factors.
that's the kind of behavior sugar is referring to on this page.

i actually really like how lola is very supportive in their own way- i think the ability to take all that intensity in and not escalate things is a really comforting trait for someone who is intense. lola mentioned earlier when sugar bought them smokes that she makes it seem so 'normal', but i would imagine lola works similarly for sugar during these moments. it seems cold, but the lack of pity or worry can be very affirming and feels a lot more safe.

God, this page pulls together this scene into an emotional crescendo. I'm so hooked, I can't wait to see what happens next.

Side note: I haven't posted a comment before but I have been really avidly following this comic and I've been just SO engrossed in every page. You're doing a great job and I can speak honestly when I say that this is a singular comic. And not just among webcomics, but among comics in general. There are a lot of really unique & well-executed aspects to Drop-Out, from art to storytelling to pacing to subject matter.

what sugar is saying is... exactly how i feel about my schizophrenia diagnosis. i feel like i've been given a death sentence, and it is just a matter of time. i'm so glad that your comic is just, raw and real and emotional. it feels validating, in a way. this latest update resonates so hard with me. my doctors didn't tell me for years what my diagnosis was, either. i figured it out on my own and later had it confirmed when i turned 18 and accessed some paperwork. my life's been a mess of psych ward stays, psychotic breaks, ruined relationships, and drug abuse. drop out is what my life is like. thank you for this. it means so much to finally have a piece of media that shows realistically what it is like to be me.
