1) Great examples with color : Only color i use is red whenever it's needed
2) Comics that show mood and feeling : Mood and feelings are one of my main focus, i think you will be served ^^
3) Funnies : Depend on the situation (And your humour), but it's not what it is about ^^'
4) Weird and out there : It's a no for this one, sorry
5) A good story : I think it's not a bad story, i put a lot effort in the characters building and their deep.
So, i just droop it here, you're the judge now.
