    Nice, dude. Very nice.

    Also, good job drawing the settings. I recognized all those places.

    You can’t always get what you want
    But if you try sometime, you just might find,
    You get what you need.

    Love that is unreciprocated is just infatuation, it makes you sick because it only boils in your own head with no release. The subject of infatuation isn’t real, just a construct you impose on a real person, usually loaded with a lot of wish fulfillment and longing to cover over the gaps. It’s a substitute to fill a void.
    Real love is knowing someone utterly and accepting them. We strive for unconditional, but really it’s only children that get that.

    Oh and nice comic, though I don’t agree with your conclusions, I admire the confidence of the execution. There’s a real muturity to this work that I know has been hard won and is all the more impressive because of that.

    Thanks Simon, but I would ask you this – can you love someone more than they love you? Is that “excess” love just infatuation? I don’t think it’s so simple!

      If true love is based on understanding then it’s equal or a self deception. There are many other forms of infatuation that people call love, but none of them survive exposure to reality for long. Though obviously the hot, incandescent sex can be stunning.
