I love the comparison :D
It was funny, that when I discovered QC only a few months or ... a year or so ago, I read my way through all the comics in a few days and this way pretty much noticed the stylechange :)
I did exactly the same thing when I first discovered the comic, which is why I actually really like the old-style ones still being on the site. If they were redrawn it's like Jeph popped up from nowhere with this talent, at least now we know that QC is a big long learning process, which makes it far more awesomer. 8D
Wow. As much as I love the original, this is great!
Oh my gosh! Awww, Pintsize's old chassis.
It is a really amazing difference, Jeph. Seeing how you've grown as an artist reminds me of how much I've grown too. I started reading your comic as a undergraduate student in Kansas five years ago, and now I'm a graduate student living in NYC. Amazing what a handful of years can do to us, right?
We're all proud of you and your hard work, keep it up!

Are you still battling with depression?
I don't know why, but that is kinda creepy.
Nice to see the comparison more directly. I remember when I first started reading it and saw the current page (I think it was in the 600s somewhere) and then the first page, I thought it was one of those comics with multiple people drawing for the same webcomic, but it's been great to see your progression in style and skills.

Totally amazing. <3 It was great watching you draw it. Even if it kept me up for 3 hours. D:
Also, can one of the 15 or so comics be one featuring Pintsize's laser? xD Pretty please?! :D
making a crappy illustrator and a great illustrator draw the same comic. Seriously, I can hardly tell it's the same person drawing it.
Will you remake more?
It's such an amazing thing to see the old comics in the way of your new style. I've just been re-reading QC from the beginning lately. I noticed the obvious difference even more than before, not only in style but in the overall design of the comic. It also brought back a lot of memories from the time I discovered the comic.
When I imagine to see all the early comics re-designed I just can't wait to buy that book :D
Will the book be available in the UK? If so, I'm sorted for ideas for birthday presents for the next year!
Every time I suggest the comic to someone (and i've added about a dozen people I know to your horde of admirers), I say, "the old comics are a bit rough, but the writing is great, and it's awesome ho you can see the evolution of Jeph's style over the course of a couple years."
and it's totally true. the original is great, rough in style but there are nuances there too, don't want to think I'm ribbing you man), but the new stuff is truly awesome.
It looks great Jeph!!
This is also the first time i've seen/heard a webcomic artist do this,
And its fantastic, I'm sure even you are like, when did i get to this point in drawing!?
Not sure if you read it, but Least I Could Do
are in the midst of redrawing their early comics, too.
I only found your comic two-three years ago, so for me the transition into your latest style went fast, over a few days in sick-bed. Just wanted to say thank you for all the fun! Looking forward to your book!
See, I just ignored all of my work in college and spent something like two or three days going through all of your archives in 2006 or 2007. It's so awesome to watch your art change and your writing stay so consistently fantastical!
I too look forward to the book.
awww, i feel nostalgic! this is monumental! how wonderful! you've grown and developed as an artist so much! *tear*
