Criticism. I really love the premise of your comic and your art is top-notch, however you do this thing where your pages seem very full and heavy and that ruins the flow of the comic. The main characters we (the audience) follow blend in the background and it all becomes mushy and unreadable. I would advice you to think each time you draw a panel "What do I want to highlight here?" or "What is important here?" and make it pop rather than become one with the background. I hold no ill will when I say this, I just know that you can do better.

@SapJames: Thank you for your criticism, I understand where you're coming from Aeon is a very orange/brown color pallet so against wood and brown objects he sorta blends but my time frame for the comic is more of a rugged 1910's feel to things so a lot of browns. I thought very carefully how I like Aeon to look in the story and since he's a thief I wanted him to blend more. Given it gets frustrating to put him in places that both have to have that dull color pallet but it works for keeping him concealed in his environment and vanishing sometimes to the people trying to look for him. At the moment they are just talking theres no need for highlighting anything.
But also I am wondering what kind of screen you're reading this on since Screens with high contrast tend to darken the colors I use a lot making it hard to see the details. I work on a happy medium contrast screen so I can understand if you're having a hard time seeing the colors and details through a higher contrasted screen.
