Ouef, that’s where all the Pokemon have been, hmm?
This isn’t quite what I wanted in my head. If I ever go back and redo things, 10 years down the line, this would be one I would want to re-address. I’m not happy with what I got, although I like the idea.
Honestly, if I had to run this again, I’d probably just go 100% to Team Rocket backstory, not having this narrator. I think there is some fun story in Giovanni and his rise of power.
201 RiGP strips! W00t!
I need to spend effort and get ahead of the game. I am really really glad I had a bunch of speech bubbles to conceal things with in panel 2, because its probably the worst panel I’ve drawn since ALGU 1.01. I wish I wasn’t running so late with it, so I could fix it up.
I really need to change up Joy’s outfit. I thought it was a clever reference, to use a poofy dress thing, but I cannot seem to wrap my mind around it. Jenny I’m mostly okay with, as I have ideas of what is going to happen in the future. Not so with Joy.
I’mma gonna get working on next weeks stuff now. Laters.
This was one of the pages I had to change the previous promise of friendship for. It didn’t make much such sense for squirtle to be as mad with my original line. I can more easily see it now tho.
Anyone thing Rae needs some comeuppance? Keep reading, true believer!
Although if I knew how much water FX I’d have to draw, I would have rewritten this chapter… :p
This could have easily been like, 3 beat panels, but I decided against it in the drawing phase. I’m not sure how the transition really works for panel 2, but I’ll have to settle with it, I suppose.
Squirtle has been going through a roller coaster of emotions, here.
I feel like I ought to have more character for this gate guard. But I don’t. I’ve not even named him. This is kind of a silly amount of time to have an unnamed NPC, but it’s true. So until we head to this gate again, if we head to the gate again, we shan’t see him again.
Oh, and Squirtle is still mad.
Rachael has recieved a quest hook! Will she follow it? Is there some quest manager she can access to see her current quests? Is Squirtle back to being mad?
I think this is a great blend of characterization and lore insertion. Some important details get dropped here. And Rachael takes it in her stride. And Squirtle is still angry.
RACHAEL has received TOWN MAP!!
No squirtles were harmed in the making of this comic.
