White bubbles with black text in them would make this a bajillion times easier to read. I actually thought that dog part was interesting, but this is too hard for me to read, so I wouldn't. Sorry.

Twilight like the vampire one? I can't read that one either. The gothic font was too hard to read, so I just put it back in the shelf and bought another book.

Off White's and Soldier's bubbles look fine to me, but if you do it like that, you'd have to be careful to make sure the BG didn't clash behind the bubble.

Good luck with this comic.

I wouldn't be so quick to write Twilight off in this case. The text within the graphic novel is something like Times New Roman, very easy to read.

So yeah, something like that could be used. As long as the words can be clearly made out, really there shouldn't be any problems in that area.

I only remember reading the 1st one and the font was small, at odd angles at times, and wasn't all capitals. I believe you about the font name and that I just mis-remembered the style.

I think it would be helpful for you to limit yourself to black and white art (and text) while you get a feel for layout and panelling etc. The colours are really problematic for readability at the moment.

If you're determined to go full colour, I'd suggest very simple white speech bubbles and black text, no matter who is talking.

Good luck :3
Your art itself has some solid basis but as many have recommended, lay off the overly saturated colouring. Start practicing purely in b/w to learn about values, contrast, shadowvslight and all that jumbo before coming back to colouring.

I'm not going into speech bubbles because they are already addressed.

so far my comics suck so much that some of the viewers think im a troll


Lol. xD
Generally I am a fan of black x white comics. This comic made me feel like my eyes exploded in the back of my head and all I saw was color. Really, it wasn't so bad.

I see promise here though, under all that color barrage. Kinda felt like one of those comics that was purposely breaking the traditional rules of comic making.

However, if you want to appeal to the general comic market the word balloons need to be fixed, with so much color going on we readers need to be able to have a visual break. Think of it as negative space to help balance the activity going on with the color and action.
