Remember when I added Greninja to the line-up of cool characters and then he was in Smash Bros? This is the gag we were leading up to. That's gotta hurt.

We'll be taking a break for the Holidays so catch us again next year. We may upload some holiday filler so keep an eye out.

Also if you're looking for a game to put you in the Holiday Spirit, I recommend Marvin's Mittens, an adorable platformer about a kid looking in the snow for his lost mitten with the help of magical elves. Happy Holidays everyone.

I tried messing around with the backgrounds here a little bit
I'm generally satisfied with how it came out, but I wish I could have something a bit cooler with Panel 3.

Other than that, two words
bottom lighting.

To celebrate the end of finals week, I did a fancy background for Panel 1! Here's the original graphic for comparison.

The logical fallacies of having a tongue scarf, part one.

I really like the shading and lighting style here. It's almost Batman-esque, which is what I'm assuming you were going for. It's so good, I love it, now I remember why you're the colorist Box.

Thanks man,
didn't know that was in question...

I mean, like, compared to the coloring I did on my last few.

You get the idea. It was a failed compliment.

I'm hoping there weren't any bird droppings on that street lamp.
Anyway, it's great that you're here! I remember reading a few of these comics from ONM, so it's great to see you're still updating!

And no one needed to triple dog dare Greninja to do that either.

Hope Greninja's home for the holidays! Also, how would a tongue scarf warm someone?

Well, Nurse Chansey still has her sweater. Nice continuity there!

Kinda dark. Greninja *did* just hang himself.

No, he's just hanging around. Pokemon can survive meteors to the face so I doubt a little pressure to the neck would trouble them.

He probably gets his tongue pulled a bit more often than that. His throat has some breath going through there, I guarantee it.
Melting the pole with fire is probably a good option IMO.
When I read your post on the BitForums, you had me thinking the obvious: Yoshi. But this was better than anything I could have hoped for.

Come on Greninja. Don't grab stuff that you don't know where it's been.

Seems like Greninja's method of locomotion is a pretty great way to get mono or something.
