.:: Pokémon Nova ::.
Banner Coming Soon...

Rated: PG-13 for Violence, Adult Themes

About: Here it is folks, my little project I was working on when KD became a little slow to write and sprite. I've worked flat out for the last few weeks, and decided to post a full on drama comic, and my homage to Decepticon's comics.

Plot: To put it simply: A war between a power company looking for world dominance, and a mercanery ship who gets in their way.

I love it. It's amazing. The sprites are top-notch. Story is seemingly underway without too much confusion. I need to be able to create sprites as well as you do, mate. XDD

Can't wait for more!

Your format of speech bubbles seems far from convenient for the reader. The fact you are inviting people to join already shows that you have a cast weakness, and the comic itself doesen't seem all that interesting at the moment. Some of the sprites could do with a bit of touching up. And not in the sexual way.

Also I am pretty sure having one of those "JOINMYCOMIC" things is against the rules.

This is more than disapointing from the self proclaimed 'great' Matt Silver.

He gave me a compliment :D - Matt Silver

(I spoil tagged it because it gets a little messy)

I have asked people to join because I want the readers to feel like they're apart of something or something like that. My cast has no weakness, and has hit 25 people without joining. I want my cast to be big and expendable, because I like comics where everyone is threatened to die in the comic or something like that.

My spriting skills aren't perfect (Neither are yours btw), and I never said they were the best. At least I'm being consistent enough instead of mixing styles because Im lazy.

My comics have large amounts of text. Rather than a Text Under Panel, I vied for an option used by Decepticon, which was a rather good one, and the convience is needed for some readers.

The JOINMYCOMIC rules were lifted, and I only take in the best sprites or character bios, and no noob joins my comic.

I never said I was great - I just know that some people make mistakes in comics, and point them out in their threads - no matter how mean or flaming I appear. I have seen some noobs carry on their crappy comics because no one told them it was an eyesore. I wasn't flaming noobs because I thought I was better - NEVER.

Every comic has a slow start, and my comic might not be interesting to you at the moment, and I agree - my comic starts off a little boring, but will likely get better. I hate having to introduce characters and stuff when I could get right into the plot and drama.

Peace Out! Thanks for posting. Do it again sometime.

Hey can I just say one thing about that post, first of all make sure your points are correct .:Kaku:. the comics are great, the sprites are awesome, and the speech looks very nice on the eyes, plus the JoinMYComic rule does not at all show that you have a weak cast, it is great. People love being in comics and having join my cast. Just too say Matt, YOUR COMIC IS DA BEST!

And I will join...Later...Much Later...In...About...Five...Minutes...And...I...Like...Pepsi...

Judging by the complete stupidity that ends your post I am going to disregard all that you say.
But for the record Bambi, it's called an opinion. You have them, I have them. If you are that easily pleased, then great for you! But don;t tell me my points are incorrect because really, neither are yours.

In regards to you Matt, the way you speak to other authors is downright awful, considering you are no better than they are.

I know my spriting is no way near the best, but it is a god sight better than a lot of what PC classes as pixel work. I mean, I;m not the one stuck editing Nintendo's work am I? And just where exactly have you even seen any of my work?

In regards to the speech bubbles, it would be easier just to have tails, seriously, do you see "Spiderman: Whallopin' Websnappers!" in the Marvel speech bubbles? Somehow I doubt so.

It was either you or Chizzy who was self proclaimed "great" but hey, at least Chizzy admitted the way he was treating people and their work was bad, and he changed his ways. Too bad you're not smart enough for that.

Either way, I need not explain myself, as any decent critic can blow open the holes in the comic so far. Weather you choose to better your comic and yourself is up to you.

Sorry about that .:Kaku:. first of all the end of my post was just a joke, and now that I read it, it was stupid, you're right.

And you say that Matt thinks his comic is the best and speak to other authers terrible, Well I don't know whether he does or not but if he does that is bad, Sorry .:Kaku:. you may be right and yes it was just your opinion.

To be honest Matt the speech looked okay but it was quiet confusing, .:Kaku:. is right about that. Let's just all be freinds now. Ok?

Thanks for posting such nice comments - Matt Silver

I used to speak downright awfully to other authors. I kinda softened up lately and I don't think I've done it much lately. Would it be easier to have tails? I think tails would waste some space, when already the frame is pretty packed.

Again, I have not flamed anybody lately (I'm pretty sure), because the newer comics have looked good. My old username was Mattthegreat, if that's what you mean and I later proclaimed myself the Comic Extremist, because I made so many of them. Chizzy stole took that title, because he had like 100 comics. I changed my username before my comics got a little better than they were.

You do have a point - you don't need to explain yourself. Any critic can be an ass for no reason - it makes them feel superior. If you feel all good up there on your high horse, don't fall down. Keep slamming on my comics, even if they don't deserve it, if you wish. You are entitled to your opinion, so is everybody. There was this one guy on SPPF who crit a lot more harshly than me - why don't you have a go at him? (It's blueguy, btw)

I think the funny thing is that this comic has some similarites to a comic you once loved - Odyssey. Yet, I did not read that you told Decepticon his bubbles needed tails, or his characters needed touching up, even if they were only the base sprites. I think you have a little personal thing against me, and you need to build a bridge, and get over it.

Again, I haven't changed. It's just lately, we've had good comics here, and I've been a little nicer about it. Go out and find a bad comment made by me in the last month or two.

EDIT: Alrighty then, look what I found:

Just another quote...

You don't appear to hate a comic with the same format as this one all that time ago - nor did you have a problem with joining it. Funny how you didn't point out that Decepticon's cast was "weak", or that his speech bubbles were too convient. I gotta admit, the sprites aren't horrible.

Again, thanks for posting. I do enjoy getting posts.

@RocketMemberMicheal: Do you really think my speech bubbles are confusing? You know, last time I checked, you use the exact same system on all your comics, but you don't have a little box up top explaining the characters' names for convience. You just insulted yourself :P

No, I don't think the speech is confusing but I know why some people would, people on PE2K have said my speech is confusing because I don't have any tales pointing to the people, but I think that is ugly, I didn't say I don't like your speech bubbles, I said the speech looked a little but I understood it instantly, anyway.

When is the next comic? Peace Out.

Thanks for clearing that up.

The next comic... I have no clue. I gotta admit, there is no inspiration when there's only like five people who post in this forum regularly. And maybe I'm afraid what Kaku will think :nervous:

I know these comics are annoying on this forum, nobody post! They should make the comic sections its own section again, I hate having it in the same place with Pixel Projects, I miss all the old crowd...

By the way I was wondering, if a cast call means you have a weak cast, you are calling Exterminators, Instincts, Prepare '4' Trouble, Nova, Oddysee & KD all weak comics, and many more. I could go on for ages. I LOVE HAVING A CAST, Damnit caps lock. Well Matt don't care what critism you get, just carry on making your comics.

They are the best. So are Metakino's. Keep it up!

I posted that thing to Odyssey about...Jesus, must of being at least half a year or something, in regards to Odyssey, I did enjoy it at first, and i asked to join to help it along a little. Odyssey was something completely new at the time.
Think of it is way
Pokemon Red was amazing, it was fresh and cool, Pokemon Pearl is different, it's a new look on the same idea and has lost it;'s shine. Basically this is the same case.
On top of that, my expectations of a comic has rising so much since the days of Odyssey, from generally reading ya know, real web comics.

In regards to Blueguy, Blueguy is a complete ass when it comes to criticism, but his comics more than make up for it. And yes, I have bashed him for it. But again, there is very little you can actually criticize his comic over.

The speech bubbles again, can be confusing for a reader, it is also a chore to have to look back and forth to see who is who, personally, and professionally I'd advise tails.

And in regards to your little personal bash, the answer is no. Bashing other peoples work does not make me feel big/better about myself, I merely criticize because i want to help them better themselves, and with any normal comic author, I would of worded it a lot more lightly and pointed out good points too. But to be honest, the way you (used) to act warrants absolutely no kindness whatsoever.

And yes, I do generally dislike you, and it is probably the basis of me being strong with my criticism. Regardless, those are my opinions and I'm sure if you sent your comics to let's say, Kris Wilson (Author of Cyanide and Happiness) or Stan Lee (well, you must know him) then they would probably either never read it again, or give you some similar tips to what I have.

And weather or not you think it, my sprites then WERE horrible, but then again, I've grown and changed thanks to the crit I've received. Perhaps you should too.

Whatever he posted. It's too long... :P

(Spoiler tagged with good reason)
I have to agree with you. Ages ago, I was cool with horrible visuals and stuff like that. Now that I've seen really good comics (And made some alright ones), I know what a good comic is supposed to look like. I may have told newbies what they were doing wrong really harshly, and I might have to apologise for being an ass.

Thank you for all your crit and stuff. My speech bubbles are going to stay on the course they're on now, and I'll keep the tails in Pokemon KD. If more complain, maybe I'll consider changing it - but this is the style I've chosen, and I doubt I'd change.

Thanks for posting - please don't do it again, unless my comics really suck. :D.

EDIT: Thought I'd post up Comic 2. It might be a little rushed, but I needed to finish up this storyline.

Also, I removed cast joining. Kaku was right - I have a big cast already, and probably won't need more... I can just make my own characters expendable. I'm up to about Comic 13, and the main cast has hit like 30 - who needs anymore? (But, the two who already gave me the characters - I'll keep them).

I hate boats XD. Your character will join the ranks of Nova come Season 2, about Comic 13 or so (No other openings yet).

Comic 3 is out now. Things get messy, and the plot thickens...

Btw, I went back and spoilertagged my argument with Kaku. Probably shouldn't of happened in the first place, and was kinda long :D...
