Looks like a hipster comic book

I like what I've seen of your book Dumegg. Looks funny and I like the supernatural so it's up my alley.
Dumegg - 4/18/2014, 2:37 PM
Thanks man. Yes, its a comedy. Its about a demon that is forced to go to group therapy
By his boss Satan. The devil doesnt think he is scary enough any more and his
Job proformance is suffering because of it. So at therapy he runs into others
Like him.
