LGBTQ Graphic Novel, was left the following VERY helpful response:

Thanks for sending along the sample. The dialogue is very well done, and I like the idea of exploration between these characters. But I’m having a tougher time with the art— its harder to see the worlds or spaces around the characters; I wonder if the paneling could zoom in & out more, and do more on each page. Perhaps 6 to 9 panels on more pages, rather than 2 or 3? Change up the shapes more often? Check out “Kisses for Jet”- that’s a great recent example with wonderful panel technique.

I’ll step aside, but thank you for the look!

Response came from his assistant Victoria Doherty-Munro same form as everyone elses...but she is also a listed agent there and I'd queried her this summer, I queried him...had no clue...in fact, I waited to query him until after I got an answer from her...
