so are many of Pageratta's story like this? Kind of bittersweet. I thought it was well written and would be interested in reading some more, but there's a limit to how much of this flavor I want to read. But if he has written other stuff equally well I would definitely be interested.

i really liked this story and thought it was very well done. As far as the endings I like 8 better then the alternative happier ending. It to me made more sense.

It is short but it minimizes the clutter and focuses on one story. The story presented you with an idea, the idea of him watching over the little girl. It established the idea and then gave you a resolution. Was it a dream come true resolution no but in something like this you are not going to get that and should not.

Was 8 ending sadder yes. But to me it seemed more believable. Think about the mother, she hasn't been great but she has been there to some degree. They are poor and while not getting the most she appears to be at least feeding the girl. She has provided some toys, the turtle, the bunny, maybe not great but. To a child this is her mother, imperfect maybe, still she will love her and will not leave her.

Great short read, 8.5 is based ending for me.

Going against the grain here, but I find this kind of story doesn't really work as a twitter comic. The twitter comics are fine experiments of short form storytelling, but they are not good at get-to-know-you character drama.

It's Capitalized Archetypes ("Loan Shark Thug with a Kind Side," "Pitiful Little Girl," "Asshole Mom") doing Capitalized Archetypes things, and the plot walks through the straightforward tearjerker route. A, then B, then C, now please cry. The characters aren't really characters beyond their literal Capitalized Archetype descriptions.

Not that short form comics can't tell character dramas or even sweeping epics, but they need different techniques, stylized expressiveness, a touch of poetry. They can't be drawn like your typical manga-just-with-fewer-pages like this one is.

let's just say we never saw chapter 8 and only saw 8.5

Glad we got a real ending, the other one was terrible.
