Hahaha this page looks ooooold... This was the first page I did afore realizing it needed a prologue, and I did it some time ago so it looks kinda weird to me putting it up now...

Oh and if you don't get the first panel... It's not important.

This is Atticus.

He's the hero.

...Vaguely speaking.

Oh, that is just FANTASTIC. All the dialogue on this page is GREAT. :D His mom looks so scared that her son doesn't wanna leave home to visit the big bad world.

Why on earth would they let 10-year-olds go on adventuring, anyhow? I wanna go adventuring....

The first panel:
in pokemon firered [I've never played any other kanto games], if you go up the the tv and press A it says something about a game with a man with a bucket on his head. This is refering to 'Mario And Wario', a game never released in english.

mario and wario Mario and Wario was also one of the earliest games developed by Game Freak. Man, obscure reference right there, man.

WARIO BUCKET! Holy Hand Grenade! (Sorry, couldn't resist shouting it as an expletive) IT'S THE GAME WHERE WARIO PUTS A BUCKET ON MARIO'S HEAD! 5 Stars for Japanese-region-only pop culture referencing! ...Okay, not really (EDIT: starred it anyway), but you're artwork is amazing, by the way. I hope to have the capability to achieve this art style in the future, if ever I should need it.

The main character reminds me a bit of Light Yagami from the manga "Death Note"

And that game is from... Mario vs. Wario I think it's called. And if you examine a certain TV then it says that that game is playing on it.

Lovely page. I agree with Atticus. Why would someone wanna go on life-threatening adventures when they don't want to or have to. Good concept.

I finally get the first panel! In the house of the copycat girl in saffron city, there is a console that when you examine it says "A game with Mario wearing a bucket on his head!".
I now feel very acomplished, despite probably not being the first one to find out.

Slam! Oh dear lord, the woman looks certifiable. He must be one hell of a son, huh? Her words sound very, very familiar. Ya know, that's what all mothers say when they want ya to do something. 'poor starving kids in third world countries would kill for this, so be grateful!'.
Atticus? He sounds like some Greek hero!
