I give you what you've always wanted to see. A sandslash in a jumper.

Well, the votes are in! Thanks to everyone for the huge response, and as you can likely guess double updates won out. By quite a lot too. So sorry guys if you voted for inked, but hopefully you can still enjoy the comic! Before long I'll have an original comic starting too, whicch WILL be inked, so there'll still be ink somewhere.

I don't think we've ever had Atty so angry. Or threatened.

See y'all soon.

Are gym leaders legally allowed to steal from losing challengers?

Just gotta say, this is hilarious. I think Atty's reaction is awesome here.

As for the double-updates vs single updates... I had a hard time choosing what to vote. But in the end, I voted double updates, because your work is amazing looking no matter what.

Cuz Toph is blind too, that's why. (And I randomly think of Toph too - when I'm not busy being sexually attracted to him.)

From my guess about how this page looks like, it seems like the girl is either related to the gym leader OR~ the two of them are dating... Well, figure out the truth later!

What a crybaby. Beats up poor dragon thing, has a level 23 at least pokemon at a starting gym (unless some how it evolved earlier), then cries her face off because he got burn status. D:<

I despise that girl, I just want her to get what's coming to her. Switching on and off the waterworks to manipulate guys is one of the most despicable things girls can do.

I voted for single updates, but that was really because inked looks more professional. If you ever publish this as a book I'd want it inked, but for just updates pencil is fine. :) Especially if it's twice a week! 8D

Gym Leaders have to be challenged, the eye-to-eye rule doesn't work for them. Atticus has a low tolerance for crazy bipolar drama, and we've seen he wont let dragonthing get pulverized. It's in his personality to throw up a middle finger and walk out while Elle throws a fit.

Still, given that this is a comic book (page limits constraints), odds are the Author is going to give Atticus some compelling reason to remain and 'finish the fight'. Someone will probably insinuate he's worse than his rival. I forget, has he seen that his rival has beaten this Gym yet?

Fire < ground but Fire ~ rock. Dragonthing (if healed by George) will stand a better chance against the Onyx than he did against Gutripper and Serialslasher. But still I don't see him winning conventionally.

Curious where the author will go with this! Clearly Elle and Stein are important characters, so we're obviously going to have to see a lot more of them.

@Kyn: Actually fire ~ ground and fire < rock. DT managed OK againt Gutripper and Serialslasher, but unless he somehow learns metal claw (which doesn't seem likely, as the author doesn't seem to want to do that from what he said a while ago), he doesn't stand a chance againt onix. And pikachu ain't gonna fair much better.

I love that pokemon makes it okay to steal from people when you when. In the games, the winner takes the loser's money, and here, the gym leader takes Atty's jumper. (unless, of course, Atty wins)

hard I've never felt so conflicted about voting results before. I voted for 2 pencilled updates per week, so I should be happy, and I am! I totally am! but dammit, the inked pages looked sooo much better :/ Story progression and perfect pages. Guess I can't have both.
Story over graphics every day, but it's still a hard choice :)

@Kyn: Actually, ground and rock are both super effective against fire. You're right about the advantage only if dragonthing learns metal claw, which is super effective on rock.

I think Stien's hand is a bit to high in the first panel. It looks like she should be sliding out of his arms. That or he's grabing her ass, but mostly the first one.

sinking all the ships now I'm feeling a strong vibe of "Doting older brother" from Stien here. I don't want to believe she's his daughter; how often does any child call their father by the first name? Unless she's adopted, but that's a whole other sack of kittens to play with.

Damnit I missed the vote... I have to say, you're work is amazing regardless and It won't change whether I read this or not but I would prefer them inked, they just have that over all nice feel - plus that way, if you ever intend on selling them *fingers crossed* We can have a lovely polished off book :D

I can't believe that guy is actually gonna do it! I thought he would be all - bitch get a grip!

Um, maybe you should choose your words more carefully miss, the way you talked about that 'cost' when you were starting the battle, the nicknames you gave your pokemon, and the stuff you were saying during the battle made it sound like you planed to... well... kill him if he lost.
