i feel kind of bad for saying it considering the circumstances but i love how sugar's ears look when they're down like that
not just for the animal behavior thing of 'this can simultaneously signal aggression and submission' and the fact that you can't really tell which it is or that it's possibly both (well, not really 'aggression' per se but defensiveness? and 'submission' in this case kind of seems like her feeling defeated)
but also because goddam shes fucking cute. LOOKIT HER SHES GOT LITTLE SAD TRIANGLE EARS ITS LIKE A LOP EAR CAT

i know this is lacking in analysis useful critical commentary and i apologize. long-time reader have avoided commenting previously because i just... i don't know. but this hit. i'm the same person who sent those two anons about the car scene, where they're talking about clozapine. so i know i already said thank you for practically the same thing but. i don't know. i can't stress how much your work means to me. i stopped pursuing my own art a while ago and told myself i'd have to do anything else anything strictly logical because the ideas were all too messy. schizophrenic being used as an insult for writing is something i've seen commonly. i think stigma wears mw down more than illness, but i don't know. anyway you've given me so much hope through your own work and life. i would have sent more anons but i wanted more space. thank you so, so, so much.

mmh this page really hits hard. i like the crowded feeling of the close up panels it really mirrors the..choking feeling she describes. her strained (if thats the right word) facial expressions too. im having a particularly bad day today but this update and this comic make it bearable. i sympathize with sugar so much, so much of what she says and does and goes through kinda resonates with me a lot, as someone with schizophrenia. again, again, thank you for this, its something to look forward to, its something that resonates witj me, i really look forward to seeing how you wrap this comic up.

i really like a lot of the parallelism here with lola giving the explanation that they want to empathize (like on page 38, sugar saying "i'm trying to imagine what it's like. to empathize") and sugar's explanation of how she feels when ppl look at her from the side comic about her ("people are vampires") it makes me think..
also! im pretty sure you mentioned this but like, the feeling that this is all building up to something terrible that's going to happen is really clear to me in this page (even if nothing really bad happens) and i appreciate that a lot... i've been feeling that a lot lately and seeing that like, reflected here makes me feel sorta less isolated (unless i'm interpreting this the wrong way, in which case, sorry). and this has definitely been said before but it's such a powerful feeling to see how u feel being put into words like this, thank you for making this.

omg... i never really knew how to describe that feeling that sugars talking about but like, idk, i feel like she says it so perfectly. i really love this, and when she talks about dna and people trying to read it and stuff. also i always really love the way you draw sugar and lolas expressions i dont really have any good way of describing it i just think your art is really amazing
