Counting Stars - Full Comic by strangelykatie Counting Stars - Full Comic by strangelykatie
A compilation of a short comic I entered in a competition earlier this year.

I didn't win, but I learned a lot and have had an amazing response since posting it online!

:star: Hit download to see the full size!

Pages read left to right, read each double page spread before moving onto the next one :thumbsup:

Edit: Wow ;___; Thank you so much for the DD!! All the wonderful comments have absolutely made my day. I'm really glad so many people have enjoyed my comic and can relate to it. For those wanting to know how to make the stars, check a tutorial here: [link]

Saw it on Tumblr a year ago.
Cried.
Lost it.
Forgot it existed.

Favorited it so I don't lose it again.
