The pictures themselves were of decent quality, as were the effects, but I got annoyed by all the debris in the pictures.
I had to take a half-point off because the main character (the diplomat) is a stock minifigure. Other than that the others were creative and nicely designed.
The writing wasn’t anything spectacular, and if anything seemed a bit choppy being one line per picture. However, it seemed to me that you tried to convey the action more through pictures than the words, so I took that into consideration. There were also some typos and grammatical/stylistic errors (“meeting’s beginning [is awkward]”, “assimilat”, “climbin”, etc.).
This is pretty pass/fail for me, although the phrase “when diplomacy fails” seems very common and could have been chosen better. It is very germane to the report, though.
Overall Appeal: 4.5/5
This SOB entry generally left a good taste in my mouth. It was nicely done and on a professional level with a good storyline.
Total Score: 4.3
Because everything's better with math...and firepower.
