Got nothing to say except thanks. Almost couldn't keep to my super-loose schedule as I've been really ill and struggling to keep up with my school-work this last month.

I think I drew this right after I saw that Les Miserables film last year. Didn't realy enjoy it, but I did like the priest (or whatever he was?) that helped the main guy what's-his-face. And yeah, that priest sorta inspired this take on Fuji.

@PAW_07 and SOMEKJU (GUEST): Yes, I have thought of making a character-page. Seems like a lot of people struggle with the names, I blame myself for not making them clear enough in the comic! xP

I've sorta begun to put some stuff together but I don't know when it will be up.

I have trouble remembering the names but it's not your fault- I just can't be arsed to remember them xD

Your schedule being hectic is totally understandable- no worries- but man, you'd think a comic would eventually get boring after so long. This one just doesn't. It gets better, somehow, with each update, and I have no idea how that's possible since every update feels like It's at top productivity. It's like somehow you harness the best potential of every situation...and every situation you come up with is amazingly well-written!

I can not gush about this enough. Never give up on this comic! I would cry rivers!

I would feel bad for Gary, but given how he's gone out of his way to be an absolute ass, I have to say he deserves it. Sure I pity those he's lost, but for him? Nothing but disdain.

Don't worry about your schedule, we all get ill somewhen or don't feel like doing something. (I'm actually having a seriously annoying cold which made me stay home for 2 days <_>)

Have a great time doing whatever it is what you do at the moment :)

Lovin' your work thus far, Qlock.
The art style is VERY fitting of the story.

Dark, messy and full of contrast.
Life, really... And you captured that brilliantly in a world so radical in variation from our own, yet so similar.

I commend you, Qlock.
Keep up the great work.

Nothing but pure masterpiece!

reply

Just today I found out what Nuzlocke actually means. I am also a big fan of Pokemon games, and this has made me interested to do my own Nuzlocke game challenge.

Now, about this comic, there is only one thing I can say: Holy crap! (in a good way).

This entire idea has got to be one of the most inspirational and original stuff that I ever came across. I was always interested into the entire Pokemon "lore" (if that´s the correct name for it), but I was always interested into seeing it in a more serious and darker tone from the actual children Pokemon tv show, which became repetitive and predictable season after season.

This comic....is easily the best and closest thing that I was searching for.

I will say it in a simple way: This comic is a masterpiece, and it totally made an emotional impact on me during these last couple of days. I was literary not able to eat or sleep properly and do my usual daily routines, because this comic has really made me think a lot about life itself.

There were so much stuff that we can relate to while reading this, and every scene is depicted so powerfully, that its just unbelievable. Plain emotions! Everywhere! For example, one of the more iconic scenes for me was at the end of Chapter 8 with Jojjo and Swann announcing that they need to leave. I could totally relate to Robin acting the way she did. It was exactly like having to say goodbye to your parents in the real life and start living on your own (except the fact that she is only 10 which makes it even worse).

What else? There are tons of great characters here and I love all their personalities and how each of them is presented in a different way (both the Pokemon team and human characters like Robin, Gary, gym leaders etc.).

Also the great game-related humor! And not to mention references almost everywhere! (one of my favorites being the " Animal farm" reference, back on S.S. Anne).

Isn´t that truly a wonder? How a small piece with drawings, colors and small text can make such an enormous impact on a person?

Please, continue with this, good sir! And of course, take your time. Even if the time between updates is long, this is something worth waiting for!

I've finally caught up! And I love where it's been going. This comic has brought so much emotion to me than most I've read. I've actually felt fear, sadness, and just utter peace and happiness reading this. It may sound dramatic or over exaggerated but I love how connected readers can be to the characters, and feel everything they go through. Someday, I feel this will go far, and become a paper-back. Yes it's already on the internet, but I would not HESITATE in buying this. Also, I have literally been bugging my also pokemon-loving friends to read this. x)
Can't wait for more! Take your time. :)
