Welcome to...

.:: Rated PG-13 ::.

Genre: Journey/Comedy/Romance/Drama

This comic is a journey comic. Not a noobish one, but one with violence, drama and romance, more of a teen thing...

Here's a brief history and backstory. Below are the comics.
Spoiler:
.:: Brief History ::.


KD was released here and only here at PokéCommunity in November 2005, and lasted to May 2006. There were 105 Comics, 99 of them with 6 panels, the rest with 9 panels in them. Style changed over the months, ranging from character changes and such.

With better spriting skills and boredom at hand, I decided to resurrect KD here, SPPF and PE2K.


.::Back Story::.


Like most journey comics, there was a main character, the region of Kanto, and an evil team. Jay Spencer-Black (Renamed Jay Black for the newer comics) lived in Pallet Town and left from there for his journey, getting his starter after rescuing it from Rocket Syndicate.

Rocket Syndicate are about the 5th reincartion of the once famous Team Rocket, using Shadow Pokémon as their weapons. Jay's starter was a Shadow Pokémon, but was purified to be used by him...

RS was taken down when their benefactors, the Shade Syndicate, had enough of Rocket's plans, instead opting to become their own team... an eviler team...

Currently, Jay is in Cerulean City.


.:: Comics ::.

Great to see it back. I didn't catch it on it's first time around, but so far I love it. The prologue was awesome, first time I've seen someone use news. It's a very original comic, keep it up MS. :D

@ Jake: Thanks. I though I saw you around it yesterday...

@ Anatasia: I posted this on SPPF as well. Just thought I'd post everywhere.

Update News: With a few more posts, I might have Comic 2 up by the end of the day.

Nice job. Saw the thread on SPPF as well.

Good luck with comic two. Will the reports come in depending on what's happened?

Thank you. I'm probably not going to use the reporters again until some more "breaking news" occurs. I'll keep with Jay's perspective for a while...

Keep on reading.

By breaking news, I mean if something significant happens outside of Jay's area and it is essential to the plot.

The "explosion" will happen during Comic 2, but you wont see. The machines' purpose is clear in Comic 3, and it's not Missy, it's DC (Missy is still around though).

Tut, tut. You mixed styles, Fr/Lg and MD.
You should know better than that!!! However, since I like using MD sprites, I'm fine with it.

The explosion joke was funny.. but where did everyone go 0.0;;

MD looks good compared to RS next to FRLG graphics. Everyone...went for ice cream or they all got blown off the mountain by the explosion.

@ Klippy: Thanks for reading (I wonder if Decep is going to come around too?)

Next update is tommorow or so.

Kind of empty.. just talking.. However, you still haven't answered where everyone went.

More like a filler comic..Well then.. I'm waiting for the next comic.. Please don't make it an 00ber Pokemon Matt.. 00bers are annoying..

Yes it was a filler comic, I said that earlier. I answered where everyone went in a post directed at you earlier. No, they are Ubers at all.

Multiple of them. DC said only one would come out of the vortex. That's what I meant. DOn't make that Pokemon 00ber.
And about the blasted off the mountain/ice cream comment, does that mean we won't see them for another season or so?

Well, I hope this post allows you to update ^.^;;

They wont be.
We wont see Angel for a season or so, and I have no plans for Lyal as of yet.

@ Klippy: Thanks for replying.

Unfortuneatly, I got a pretty bad cold, and haven't had much time to get some comics done. You might have to wait until tommorow
