Reading this fun comic, reminds me of a lot of other series where the protagonist has access magical wishes.

And every time I come across such a series I think; If they have a limited number of wishes, or the wish granter keeps trying to screw them over. I don't get why they never just say "I wish I had reality warping powers equal to yours, with none of the drawbacks you suffer along with full mastery over them"

You can do that, or be like RJ and say "No thanks to your wishes!"

Also I'm pretty sure that wish would turn you into a genie in either case XD

Well since part of the wish is having "none of the drawbacks", at least I wouldn't be trapped in a Lamp and forced to follow somebody else's whims

Even if I got put in a Lamp, I should be able to let myself out due to that line

?drawbacks.?? i don't see any drawbacks.. home/lamp you go to the as place every night to sleep... ?? ..
job/wish you go to work every day (m-f) an do what they 'wish' or you get fired..
so.. you are trapped in a house,, an do others wishes..
and. i think she can come out on her own,, but has to when called..

I honestly would have made a kind of Midas touch wish with the addition of required at specific will use and then just set her free at that point. Third wish be damned. Win win I'd think.

I forget where, but I remember seeing one where they know the genie will try to screw them over... So they wish for the complete annihilation and genocide of all genies, all magic, every where, every when.
Harsh, but effective.

It's not a drawback to be turned into a genie. There are two kinds of genies in this world *Hint hint, spoiler spoiler* =W=

And Griha's rule book would not allow any annihilation of magical species. It'll actually be revealed later in the story that someone tried that once :D

Not the way I would've gone with it; I would have expected that you can't get the wish power of a genie without the downsides because the power isn't entirely theirs. There is that will of the universe part that's involved, right?

The interesting part to the genies thing is what happens to them after they're freed. No matter what story I've seen/heard, they never really give a serious explanation of what and where they go after they peace out.

Well, that answers the question of why nobody kicked Cassandra out, but it poses the next question. Why did nobody convince or manipulate Cassandra out of doing what is (or at least ought to be) criminal harassment of her ex?

That would be because Sandra is very sensitive, and they don't know how she would take it.

Unless there's a family history of staging murder-suicides I'm going to go out on a limb and guess, "Probably a lot better than this." On the other hand, I do grasp that the obvious choice from an outside perspective or hindsight often is not so obvious within the situation itself. One of the biggest reasons for that is because of legitimately complicating factors which may mean these obvious answers are actually wrong.

There is a looooong reply I could write responding to this hahaha XDDD I love psychology and figuring people's behavior, but explaining them is not a quick reply.

But let me put it this way: RJ has tried. She didn't take it well, and it made things worse. So bringing it up again, might make it even more worse.

That sounds like a story to hint at without telling it for at least another fifty pages: The magic ingredient of fiction writing is often sadism, in my experience.

Why are the Characters constantly crosseyed?
The art looks pretty cool and the story seems pretty thought-through at this point, but the constant crosseyeingis kinda weird.

The characters are not cross-eyed. They're looking right in front of them.

I hope I'm not offending you by this, but those eyes look like they're staring at their own nosetip.
I know it's a very minor placement-issue of the iris, but I think if you would just give those irises a little nudge in the direction of the center of the eye it qould actually look way more "realistic" and far less crosseyed.
Real eyes' irises are almost centered in the visible part of the eye when looking straight ahead. :)

I see where you're coming from, but I don't see the problem. I even showed my comic strip to my friend Kel, who literally studies in school animation and she saw nothing wrong with the eyes.

Well - that might be because judging from his/her gallery has the same (kinda crosseyed) style of art - although a little less prominent because of the big irises he/she draws.
Anyway - I just felt that if noone pointed it out it may not even occur to you, that to some people (me at least) it would look that way.
Make of it, what you will - it sure is nothing I would ditch this comic for. It just would make it less unintendedly funny - in my opinion at least.
I still think this comic (and your art) has great potential and I'm looking forward to read more, and maybe even support you on patreon in the future. Keep up the nice work, and don't be afraid of looking at it from another angle, because that is very important for becoming better in the long run. :)
