Eye of the Gods - Web Comic

Eye of the GodsPage from Eye of the GodsOK here's how the site describes it. Eye of the Gods is a psychological thriller about a man who's life spirals out of control when he is cursed with the ability of remote viewing.

Sean Black, an artist, has a surgery to clone his eyeballs and replace his existing eyes with the clones, restoring his failing vision. After the operation, he has a "dream" about a murder, only to discover that it really happened……But the death isn't being reported as a murder. When his curiosity gets the best of him, it sets off a chain of events that unravel his life.

The Writing
The above skit does describe the comic very well. I like the concept and i like where the story is going. I like the main characters and feel that the supporting cast add to the depth of the story. There is lots more going on that we are told and I'm stocking with it to see how it ends up. So far with over a hundred pages online this is good solid stuff.

The Art
I Like the art. The artists style is clean and simple the use of gray tones give some panels a sense of depth. My only moan about this is there are little or no backgrounds in many of the panels. This may have been intentional to move the story along quicker but I feel that maybe the artist could have spent a bit more time.
