Wow!

On top of the art being killer, I don't think I've heard of the concept of re-writing data into useless bit of genetic code. Let alone finding a messege in it. This strikes me as very creative. It's at least the first time I've seen it.

Wow, this is really good!

One small point of critique, the fabulous art makes it very difficult to read. But other than that it’s great.

These colors are incredible.. and I'm slightly color blind so that's really saying something.

I really like the pipe frame work too, clever!

That's some fabulous artwork. I like the way the undefined panels tumble into one another, and the coloured dialogue is really nice.

Visually it struck me as looking a little like this strange puppets and real people childrens show called Crazy Town that's made in Iceland and is on in the UK. It's all hypercolours and crazy buildings (I'm sure any similarity is pure coincidence!)

As a former molecular biologist this is a great idea - it could in a way be done, if you have DNA code (GATC) translate to the amino acid code which is 20 letters (for 20 amino acids) and your secret message didn't use the 6 missing letters.

Anyway, great stuff - a cracking strip!

Yeah, this is amazing. I wonder what it would look like printed out.

Equating "life" to a ponzi scheme seems insightful to me. They both expand until they collapse.

I haven't read you comic in a while, and this makes me want to go check it out again. It all hangs together so well, it has such a great energy, without seeming forced or tricksy.
The colours/rendering on everything is lovely, too - those houses down the left look super-great.

Your use of color always stuns me.

You have really moved forward with your art, it has become richer and more expressive. The narrative is still a jumble to follow, though if one makes the effort, there is definitely payoff involved. Just wanted to add that I am really glad there are Dresden Codak comics online again, I enjoyed them some years ago and the new run is even better.
