There may still be a bug or two in the application…

Don't get me wrong, I understand people have different  tastes, but in my opinion, this story was barely interesting enough for a one-shot, let alone a recurring series. Then again, this artist is my least favorite among the ones MCC uses, so maybe it's merely the artwork itself that turns me off the finished product.

Nah, it's the whole story.

There's a... little bit... of something going on, though.

So Mira gets a new personality per-client via the app when she confirms. And has overlapping clients where the "Mixed Messages" result in switching to a dominatrix in the middle of a session where she'd been "ordered" as a compliant fuck-bunny. She also ditches a guy who's apparently into her in favor of her real Master, the app. Granted, he seems to be a stalker, always appearing wherever she is. And she turns off the app at the end.

If I try really hard and try to imagine who she really is underneath that... maybe this is just world-building? We've been introduced to the tech and the logic around it. And now shown that it's not perfect. And this is our first shot at creating some characters we might care about someday.

I can give-or-take the art if there's a good hook waiting for a later chapter. I meh'd through the starts of The Persuader, Fantasy World, and Waiting Room before the hidden hooks got me so I'll hold out hope there's something crafty going on here before I completely give up on it. So far, though, I agree. Not exciting visually or story-wise.

And I hope that nerd guy was sniffing sopping-wetness and not something else. Based on the angles (and she just had tacos)... those splotches. Ugh. Catering to all tastes?

Feedback for what it's worth; this one was a miss for me as well, for the same reasons above, and I'm not personally interested in seeing an issue #3.

I really enjoyed it, actually. In my opinion, the first issue of Gig Economy was one of the best one-shots the site has had in a while,  and I was excited to see it renewed so soon. I'm not sure if I like this one more or less than the first issue, but it's great either way. I certainly enjoyed it more than last week's issue of Permed. (If you're going against the grain, might as well commit, right?)

I loved seeing other FuckBunnies in the background in this issue, much like the background women wearing rubies in Beyond Rubies. The idea that this change is societal, not just personal, is something I find quite hot. And Mira's sudden shift from sub to dom sold the MC more convincingly than the changes in #1.

All that being said, please fix the PDF! There may still be a bug or two in the new site as well.

I’ll throw my hat in the Liked This And Want It To Continue ring. Maybe preferred the first issue, but only because it felt like more happened. The concept is very good, if at this point somewhat obscured by the dearth of dialog and us being only 2 issues in. The art isn’t next level by any measure, but it is charmingly pulpy and I appreciate the strategically deployed details. Variety is one of the strengths of this site, so yeah, I’d like to see a 3rd installment.

I'm still having problems with downloading the file on this a day after it went up so you might want to check it out.

And for what it's worth I really like this artist's work: it makes a pleasant change from the more photorealistic stuff in other MCC products. We can have some variety in the product line.

There are probably even people out there who like AUDIOPHILIA....

We all mean different things when we talk about "mind control". Bearing that in mind, though I haven't actually read this yet (roll on the weekend) I already know there's at least as much "mind control" in this one comic as there is in all the chapters of Audiophilia, By The Book, The Chrysalis, and Bearing Gifts put together. But I must admit, those are all nice and colourful.

Sadie Bella's art reminds me of those early SJI pages, which may be why I have a fondness for it.

Fixed now except the front page is a slightly peculiar set of colours which affects my enjoyment of the rest not at all...

Nice being able to download the file. Since there seems to be some disagreement on the matter I feel like I should weigh in that I'm in the group that likes Gig Economy. Neither the art nor the story are in the running for my favorite on the site, but that's a really high bar to reach, and they are different from the rest of the site and variety is a very good thing in my book. My favorite part of the art is the contrast of the pink fuck-bunny headbands with the monochrome of the rest of the image, and my favorite thing about the writing is the exploration of a mind-control based economy that is both voluntary and temporary.
