Hmm... I love the soft colours of your art but I think the bold title takes away from it. Of course, the title should be a little bit bolder than your art to make it stand out. But here I think it's a bit too "BOOM! Title!". It draws the eye away from the art, rather than gliding it towards it. Perhaps if you made the font thinner (Maybe more decorative to go with your soft, smooth coverart) it would help. The subtitle to me seems like it shouldn't be white... Mabe a very light orange, or a lighter shate of the title's colour? Because I see the title, but nothing really draws me to the subtitle.

Sorry for that big critique there, here's the stuff I like.
Your art! I love it, it's really... flow-y (For lack of a better word. :P) and I love the focus on the creature in front with the firery tendrils. Looks beautiful. :)
Your art looks very different from what usually see -I like that very much. It's unique and very soft (As I've said several times already but that's because I like it). I shall go read your comic now. :)

Thank you very much, I always appreciate input on things that aren't working! And typography has never been a strong point for me, so getting to hear what other people think good or bad on it, helps me a lot. I did end up doing a new cover for the prologue chapter, which..I haven't posted yet, but I hand drew the text on this version: [link]

Your art is very good and the story is pretty interesting so far. Have you considered submitting this to Heavy Metal? I have little doubt they'd accept it.

Gorgeous colours! One bit of crit: the lower text's 'g' is abutting the bottom border something fierce. Pushing it up so that it has some padding would be very good. Also, for the sake of hierarchy, making the secondary title smaller would give more of a visual punch. The font is feeling very generic at the moment... I'm not a typographer, but looking at piles of comics, it seems as though they often make the title of their comic into something of a logo or a word mark. Giving it some life outside of a stroke in a paler colour would make the title stand out more, I think.

Maybe pushing the prologue copy up so that it's under the main title, making it smaller so that it doesn't fight with the title, and fiddling with its placement so that it's not centered, but looks balanced when compared with where the heads and halos of the characters are -- and then adding a 'by Skulldog' where the prologue currently is would make it feel more natural. I've got no problem with the picture, itself -- it's lovely! -- save for maybe knees being very close to the edges of the image. The font and placement do seem to be underacknowledged compared to what you have done with the illustration.

I hope that helps and doesn't come across as being annoying! The comic is looking pretty awesome so far. :D Keep it up!

Oh god man, no crits are ever annoying to me. I happily accept anything people can point out that's off or incorrect, or whatever. :D

I'm going to play with some variations for the title/header placement and size. Aside from lettering comics, my typographical skills are about zero, so it's been mostly me going 'These colors looks good, we'll go with this..'.

Thanks for the insight!

I have that problem, too! Yelling at designers seems to help a lot in terms of getting some helpful feedback. XD
