    Hi again Matt, i do really like this comic. Something that bugs me though, is that you double the size of places/sprites. I think it would look good at 1x size.

      Matt Silver, I understand that you'd like more posts - I think most every thread starter in the Pixel Art section would. But in holding the thread 'hostage' (as someone so eloquently put it), you are bring out posts such as lost listed above. I'm not saying that it's your fault though, it's the responsibility of the members to adhere to the rules. Thankfully you have been getting more substantial posts, but I'd rather not see any more similar to those listed above.

      I need to find some time to go through all the comics in this section, they seem to be quite good.
      *Agrees*. (btw, who said "hostage"? xD).

      Thanks for the warning.

      Btw, I revamped the first post a little. Thought it might look better.

      EDIT: Thread is still under hostage until further notice. Peace out.

      EDIT 2: I'd hate to say that SPPF is getting the finale first. I wonder why?

      EDIT 3: Call it unfair, but I am really PO'd. I've had 300 or so views since posting the last comic - a lot in the last two days.

      @ Chikase Fortala: The double size works to show some more facial expressions. Compared to the MD Sprites, 1x sprites are too small. Works out well... I hope. Thanks for posting.

        I'm just waiting to see if he took Charmander in his haste. He being the Rocket. There's not much to crit on in these comics, but I'm gonna look.
        And possibly another introduction to SS? You kind of threw that on us. As well as the fact that Angel May is ALONE. What happened to the cheap Silon edit?

        Just kidding. It's not that cheap. Well, it wasn't after the revamp.

          Postify... that's good right?

          Charmander is with Jay - why wouldn't he? The Rocket guy is now the SS Guy. I had to introduce SS to Jay and his friends, and I wanted to get everything ready for Season 3's storyline. In about Comic 31, I will have Jay explain to his friends everything Angel told him.

          What happened to Lyal will be explained in Comic... 27 or so...

          I guess you all deserve Comic 24:

          Comic 24: Silas aka Season Finale.

            What i find pretty cool is that the person is called Silas. It is similar to one of the main characters in the series Heroes. Sylar.

              Sylar is awesome, but not the basis of Silas' name. It actually comes from Iceman's character Silon. Thanks for posting.

                How far is it on the next episode? I feel that the last one let you down a little bit... but hopefully the next one will explain why.

                    Silon was in the old comic and he was going to be an agent for SS. In this remake, I did need him again, but Iceman delayed replying for permission until I had already make Silas.

                    Thanks for posting.

                    @ Tyler-chan: Next episode will be here tomorrow. I've been like revising for exams lately, and KD work is slow. :(

                    EDIT: Kinda late... but here it is!

                    Comic 25: Take Two

                    Also, I'm currently editing the main character bios... but now I've posted Gym Leader bios!

                    Gym Leader Bios:
                    Blacked out means we haven't encountered them as of yet!

                      I think your comic is starting to lack that certain "Oomph..". I can't really tell why but im just not as gripped as before.

                          Thanks for posting. By Chara/gl profiles you mean Character Bios? Awesome.
                          Btw, Comic 26 is all ready to post...

                          NOTE: I am putting the thread on hiatus. This means that no comics until later.

                                Welcome back lol. 26 was pretty funny, especially the "A.S.A.P." moment. Same for the Thanksgiving one.

                                    Matt, your comic is pretty good I must say. The characters are interesting, and their sprites look good. It's clear that you put a lot of effort into each and every panel of your strip, and the results are worthwhile since the strip itself is presented quite nicely with the effective layout of speech bubbles and the use of sprites.

                                    At the moment I've only read the last 10 or so (since it's 4.45am), but I like what I've seen so far. My only qualms are the mixing of sprite styles, which I suppose can't really be helped unless you spend a lot of time (like I did at one point ^^;), and the length of the battles. I suppose you don't want them running over a few pages, but the fact that you skipped a part of the battle kinda broke the rhythm of things.

                                    And why did Seedot evolve upon release into the battle? How did Jay know that? XD

                                      Nice long review. This'll be a challenge:
                                      As for the mixing styles, I know it's a problem and looks kinda bad to mix MD with FR-LG, and I do search the net/try making my own custom battle sprites based off Coronis', but the MD ones is all I've got so far. As for skipping battles, I think you'd find that I skipped that one to continue the story and not bog it down with battles and stuff.

                                      Seedot evolved like that because... training with Cyrus may have been a factor (Check out Comic 6: One Week Later), and Seedot's evolve pretty early. I suppose Jay just told him to hold off evolving until later. Maybe Jay just used "evolution" as a normal attack (Just this once though). That and I needed to make Seedot cooler. (Btw, I'm adding this explanation into Comic 31 - where I have time to put it in).

                                      Thanks for the mega-review Amachi. Keep on reading!

                                        Sorry it's been a while since the last review -- life has been insanely busy these past couple months. =/

                                        I like Jay's evolution-battle technique. It's always been a favourite of mine. x3 I'm curious to see what will happen once he and Angel get there. (Too bad the rest of the gang has to walk. =p)

                                        My only complaint isn't much of one. Based on a personal preference, I'd get rid of the black-space where rooms cut off (maybe make the rooms a little larger?) just because of aesthetics. That's about it. Keep it up.

                                        (PS - Loving the violent Thanksgiving, even it's late. x3)

                                          Walking is the way to travel. The black space thing... it really only happens in the smaller areas, and I'm usually zoomed in big enough to get rid of it.
                                          Thanks for posting. A violent Christmas will follow.

                                            The Thanksgiving one was hysterical, and I'm glad you're back.
                                            I was worried I'd have to go to Serebii every day to check your comic >.<

                                            Nice town there, the icy one, Cape Town? Anyways, keep up the good work (You're mapping is pretty good)!
                                            I wanna see the camo ninjas come into town and take everyone out, and I'm expecting some nice customs!

                                              Serebii's not that bad, and it's better than the weird Pe2k comic section, which is like 98% MD Comics.

                                              Let me start by saying: I did not make Cape Town. A fellow member (Who shall remain nameless but I put him/her on the credit list) showed me it when he was amateur mapping, and I edited it (while keeping the original shape and some of the tiles)- and he let me use it for the comic. Just thought I'd clear that up in case you see it elsewhere.

                                              Camo ninjas... maybe. I'm not sure how to custom that yet, but I'm thinking secret agents...... or ninjas (The choices!).

                                                Let me start by saying: I did not make Cape Town. A fellow member (Who shall remain nameless but I put him/her on the credit list) showed me it when he was amateur mapping, and I edited it (while keeping the original shape and some of the tiles)- and he let me use it for the comic. Just thought I'd clear that up in case you see it elsewhere.

                                                Camo ninjas... maybe. I'm not sure how to custom that yet, but I'm thinking secret agents...... or ninjas (The choices!).

                                                I enjoyed it, a little filler-ish though. :D

                                                  Hm...I agree, the comic raises more questions than answers. Mostly bouncing about, but I'm curious as to what the title of the next comic means. Is there going to be a new character, or have I missed something? (I've got a migraine right now and can't even remember my lunch, so it's possible. ._.) Other than the slight filler-ness, I can't complain. And, on a seperate note, I like the new bios -- very nice!

                                                    I needed something to do for their trip to Cape Town, so I decided to answer some questions that the readers might have. Thanks for posting.

                                                    It will be a new character - so far, we don't know whether or not the cast has siblings - this answers it, hence the crappy title. Thanks for posting.
