Whenever there is a delay I vent through the magic of sprite comics.
The colour version will be here soon so make sure to check back. TheMightyBox is hard at work on it... I think... someone stuck a fridge magnet on my spy camera so I can't be certain.
So to summurise, Ditto's nervous, Alakazam is nuts but he doesn't know it, you were a horrible person for mocking Oshawott's design when he was first shown and Cofagricus... well. Each of the panels is a seperate gag in and of it's self so we used up 4 weeks of material in one. Don't you feel special?

Immitaing the Peanuts style of word balloons is more dificult than it looks. The font is free and I'll drop you the link if you ask.

There's an old saying, and one that I righteously stick by,
there is no problem that can't be solved with a Gaussian Blur.

Nice to see how it looks without color but I'd advise not to do this very often if you want to keep face. I'd personally, delay releases but that's just me.

We'd rather have something available for our readers instead of missing an update, but that's just us. ;)

Comments I have about this comic:

Panel 2: Cofagrigus's Mummy ability. Great for screwing over opponents who rely on their abilities such as Conkeldurr, for example. God (or I guess in this case, Arceus) help you if Slaking, Regigigas, or Archeops get hit with Mummy...

Panel 3: The only bad things I've recently heard people say about Oshawott now are all anime based. Mainly complaints about how Oshawott gets too much screen time and how it acts exactly like a CERTAIN PEGUIN POKEMON. *cough*Dawn's Piplup*cough*

Panel 4: Maybe because in your case, Alakazam, IT IS.

Speaking of all that stuff I said about the 3rd panel, has anyone else here heard of all the news about Best Wishes Season 2 in Japan? Apparently, Dawn and Piplup are coming back. For how long is unknown as of this moment. Wait, Piplup and Oshawott on the same screen? Cue hilarity!

This comic was writen just as Black and White were coming out in the UK and Oshawott was still the butt of Derp-otter jokes. Still works because hi evolutions are real cool. I mean, it's a freaking samurai sea lion!

P.S.I have dibs on the band name Samurai Sea Lion.

...What's Magus doing over there? He's making me a bit nervous...

Because he kinda looks like a bean in the sprite comic, and I'm sitting at my computer desk thinking and laughing about Box being one of those Mightybeanz toys.

Like those. (copy and paste the url into your browser's search bar if the picture doesn't work.)

Whoops, I'm commenting on the sub comic instead of the comic, sorry.
Latiaslover97 (Guest) edit delete reply
Whoops titles don't matter and if you can't see the title of my other post it doesn't make sense, so here's the title of other post

"Is Box's sprite in the sprite comic a joke on his name?"

Sorry for being off topic.

Not really, I was asked to make a sprite version of my persona OC (you know the one) and I ended up just editing the Blob prits from a Boy and his Blob.
And then Guy 8-bit-ized it.

Hope you learned your lesson Gardevoir. For everything in the world never ever EVER <b>EVER</b> make an intelligent conversation with another psychich type. Unless psychic is taken away from you.
