on the days that 65 actually attended school he was a master of melting out of his chair and out the door at lightning speed when the bell rang

Yeah, been spamming you. Sorry. I love the whole concept here, gotta say.

Your art style is good. It kinda reminds me of the old Rankin Bass movies...not so much the stop motion holiday specials....I mean their animated version of "The Hobbit", and "Flight of the Dragons"....I'm pretty sure they were involved in "The Last Unicorn" too. That's what it makes me think of, a modern take on that style.

I love the mental health metaphor. It means a lot to me to see this stuff, having a diagnosis myself.

@SoulRaider116: You're not spamming! I'm honored you would leave such feedback on my work. One of the goals of Recoil is to be relatable for everyone struggling with mental health, especially since we don't seem to have many comics geared toward us quite in this way. So to see people connect to it... that's really important to me!

THE SOUND OF SILENCE IN THE FIRST PANEL

And now I'm really curious about the kid in the back who went out of the way to take no part of it (honestly it would have been my strategy if blending in by the table didn't seem safer for some reason). I'm very much about quietly watching out of corners. :D

And echoing the other commenter, this comic, man. Love this comic. <3

@Oly-RRR: It was fun drawing all those ellipses and blank expressions. Everyone's done here!

I'd also much prefer to be a wallflower like 65. Having my back to a wall makes me feel secure, like nothing can sneak up behind me. He's just there because he wants nothing to do with anyone. XD
