It's not a comic book, it's not a graphical novel, it's something new. Sorta like a short story with abstract emotional art to set the feelings of a character during a selected scene. I enjoyed it

Whoops. That rules me out, I guess.

Edited to add this is NOT a criticism of GCP, just a sad comment on my reluctance to jump into the social networking arena.
Yea, this was my wifes problem also, but she is working on building her social media up.

See, thats the thing, it's not an illustrated story. It's a short story with 1 or 2 pieces of artwork.

They aren't asking for shills, or trying to get people to advertise. They just want people to have a good understanding of social media and how important it is to spread the word about their work and other peoples work. It's about meeting new people and sharing ideas, not pushing products down peoples throats. Either way, I don't agree, nor disagree with this rule of theirs. I see the pro's and the con's.

Also, I see a lot of hate. Don't hate I was skeptical myself, then I tried one, and enjoyed it. The stories are great and I see the artwork as a bonus. They also developed something new coming in july called autograph cards. Not sure what they are all about but I think they have something posted on the site about them. Sounds interesting.
