Cool. I've uploaded screenshots to see how it looks on my FF7 below. I
like it. Well, with the exception of linefeeds in download links and
some stuff that is strictly subjective. For example, blue cloud looks
completely out of the way on the main page - I don't know if it is
thanks to the dark background or to its form. I also prefer right-side
panels over left-side. On issue page red and blue tones are also
looking strange to me. What is awesome are comment numbers. A pity
these are not clickable.

Anyway, good work! =)
