Just read through your comic on the train. It's kinda...cute. And I don't mean that in a condescending way! The story has a good hook that will keep you reading.
I really like the greyscale shading since it's simple enough to convey a basic sense of depth yet not overly detailed to the point of being a distraction. The square heads, however, are confusing depth-wise since they are always square and I feel this conflicts with the bodies drawn at different perspectives. But I am willing to dismiss this as a stylistic choice. After all, they are
Will you be coloring the rest of the pages?

Thanks. Best comment I've had so far. I haven't posted in on the GMS forums cos I don't know how/if they would respond.
Sadly, I don't plan on coloring the pages. I instead plan on making the first couple of pages to a story (or rather important pages) colored so you can get a sense of each characters color scheme. Then keep the rest in black and white so that I can get pages done quickly. Manga does this quite often and I think it is a style to follow.
As for the square heads, yes it is deliberate. I Wanted to keep the characters as 2D as possible while playing with depth and perspective. This is how Mickey Mouse's ears work and does not work at all in 3D.
