Messi Journey to the Stars IV by RalphNiese Messi Journey to the Stars IV by RalphNiese
the magic of a rotten sausage brings Messi´s messed up brain back into the reality of ---- 2008! a teen´s life later than he expected!
what happened? the whole city changed! sales and adds everywhere! it´s breathtaking - and so for better understanding it´s in internaternational wordless style.

only words: p1: Messi comes home, p6: Welcome!, p9: Magic!
p39: "alte Messe" = old trade fare.

i like it how it´s a huge pie of yellow and green with blue dots on it, when you first look at it in whole and how it turns into a book when reading it....strange!

Messi Journey to the Stars IV by =bruno83 is a wonderful, wordless little story where the artist captured perfectly a vintage style in colors but with a very contemporary liveliness and sequencing. ( Suggested by OneFreeInternet and Featured by Majnouna )

Hey I just wanted say that your comic strip is super awesome and very original in style and composition.;p:woohoo: I just was browsing when I saw your art.

When I viewed it, a wave of nostalgia flooded over me. Along with your DA icon it reminded me of the mid the 80's and 90's; and also it might have that I was listening to Seal- 'Kiss From a Rose' and was thinking of Batman(the 90's and 60's). ^^;

Anyhow, this is a wonderful piece, again so original in style and form, I especially love how it's just a picture strip, and no words; very retro 1950's and up. To me this is very creative and well thought of. I am a great appreciator of originality in comic strips and their style, especially the elder comics of time.

For this well put together and really original classic styled characters as well as theme, I'd like to give you six gold stars for everything. :star::star::star::star::star::star: =D :w00t!:

In all seriousness, this a great piece which I really like a lot. Much thanks again for the art nostalgia reminder because it really does differ entirely from most of the stuff you see around now days.:nod: So stay original friend! =D :judge::tighthug::+fav:

The pair in the 7th panel reminds me a tiny bit of Volk and Zayats (or Zajac. I've seen it spelled both ways) xD Wonderful work.
