Hey there. I'm over the illness! Woot! And in with a page. If you will recall, he was narked about you walking along his property and that was why he claimed you couldn't pass.

Okay that might be the most stereotypical grumpy old man ever created but he is blastedly good fun to draw. I wish I was brave enough to draw all my characters in ways that make them look more individual... I'm working on it.

I think I'm gradually finding a happy place with my inking. Oh, and it's... Twenty past four in the morning here. I officially live on the wrong side of the day. Getting back into a class routine on monday is going to be a nightmare...

See y'all soon.

Time for replies methinks.

djl: Well done you. Here's a penny.

Pikachao: Conveniently, in the game he is almost exactly the length of the path he is trying to block.

RyoSoulreaper: Sarcasm is the best way to deal with everything ;D

Moo Moo: Thanks XD They are much fun.

Clovat: He's far funnier with a broken nose.

Chan is no longer a guest: Awsum 8D Even when I'm crap I'm good. ...Or more likely you just like the same poor humour that I do. Huzzah!

Crystal: You shall never know...

Krazeh: That sounds marvellous ='D Screw the inking, lets run away~

FanFantasy: I think the dry sarcasm is getting to the guy more than the broken nose...

kat_star01: It was actually s'posed to be blood but it looked too good white XD I guess the blood ran out.

Mr Aids: It shall go with me to the grave. Unless we're talking cash, that is...

xwx101: That alley took some work thanks for noticing XD Perspective? Whossat.

Crusty_Kris: It took him a moment of shock on the last page while he composed himself but he recovered in time to slide out a few comments ;D

Sonow: Red yellow and silver are the only ones I've really played. I wouldn't touch the mystery dungeons.

Se: I'd love to cover that but Super Effective already did it so beautifully...

GreeNin93: Yeah I doubt Atty is gunna be on either of their christmas card lists.

ApaFox: Back in my day we didn't have fences! We'd lie in the road and be happy with it!

Ichipowa: And proud of it.

Pat15: You're getting an idea of how Atty rolls ;D

Yamataro: You can? I don't recall.. You could jump down ledges I know that much.

Cliscia: I don't know what a Boondock is. He's just your standard grumpy old man who hates people on his lawn. Everyone's got one somewhere.

Jazeki: I dunno, I'd watch it if I was him. I was considering giving the old man a walking stick but if I had he'd have beaten him with it by now.

Waiting for your whistle: That's all just his baggy jumper XD Aye Atty looks really tall on this page but the fact of the matter is just that the old man is very small.

SBM: Oh fear not, there should be plenty more opportunities for such things ;D The pokemon world is filled with underage beauties.

That sounded terrible.

Yamataro: Run? Jump? Climb? Any kind of physical exertion? These things are unknown to Atty anyway XD

FallenEmbyr: Looks like the kind of thing I woulda been forced to wear as a child.

Rainbird: Roses are Red... Violets are blue... And there's too many on your cardigan.

Hero of Comedy: If that's not the way to become the very best I don't know what is!

HyrulePhantasian: You have obviously never experienced caffeine withdrawal.

Emruki: Thanks, good to hear it's working XD

Crescen Moon: I have something special in store for the Gym Leaders ;D As for Red... Well we'll see.

Shawnz63: Why thankyou very much! But that probably means you need to read more.

MarzipanPerfection: Atty or the old man XD The old man's my favourite to draw personally.

Kid Garra: Grammar? Who needs that guy. Thanks XD Indeed, it remains with you. The majority of things in this comic are just from things I remember from years and years ago when I played all the time, I'm only having to play through once more to make sure I'm getting it right. And it's a joy to make a reference to something obscure, wondering if anyone else will even know what I'm on about, and then seeing as they normally do ;)

Loki Fenrisulf IV: That's a very good point... That old man's not entrepreneur.

KoShi&CiNos: I don't think so, and maybe that's where he's been going wrong...

Marvy: Thankyou very much, happy you're liking it =D

CiNostheHedgehog: Fuck of my comment space with your plugs. If you want to advertise then pay for it like anyone else.

Thanks for commenting guys!

I always wondered why no one just walks around that old man
January 6th, 2010, 10:29 pm
Atty seems to be handling this sarcastically well. I'd used to hate that old man. Wonder what Attty's gonna do when the old dude wants to show him how to catch pokemon.

Love the way you draw old, crazy people >.>
January 6th, 2010, 10:40 pm

Best old man ever. XD
I totally forgot about the property thing. I was too busy being angry about the coffee.
I wish Pokemon had a "STEP ON HIS FACE" option in the game when we stumbled upon this man. That would have been great.

OH AND LOL BY THE WAY, I actually laughed really hard at the match thing. I'm ridiculous.

He's just drunk/hung over, I'm sure. Why he needs coffee. ;P

What was he gunna say? >_>
January 6th, 2010, 11:04 pm
Lol u're right the inking on this is great 8D nice and thick and varied at the same time. I shall marry it! And we shall have the most awesome wedding!! But i cant 8D To vegas, H0ly! VEGAS!
January 6th, 2010, 11:09 pm
Ohh, continue Atty. You can get him back for me. >:D Ahahaha.
January 6th, 2010, 11:33 pm
the drooly nose was a nice touch for the old man XD
Mr Aids

"Why you cocky-"

I wanna know what he was gonna say D=
January 7th, 2010, 1:52 am
Sweet ally way, oh and somebody shut the old man up. take out charmander and burn him, or maybe that's to harsh.
January 7th, 2010, 2:11 am
man, i'm just laughing on the floor from the sarcastic calmness in atty's comebacks. i probably wouldve either cowered or yelled back.
January 7th, 2010, 2:19 am
of course, the Jhotto region is the ONE region I havent played... (in terms of typical Pokemon games, anyway. I havent played any of the mystery dungeons or the such, either.)

I can't believe that my first thought was "but there should be bushes on one side and the Gym and School on the other!"

I really remember that old man too well. Just get him some coffee and call it good, kid.

Oh gosh.. the pokemon lecture. XD I remember that! Can't wait to see it in comic form! I'ma go have to pick back up my pokemon red and blue...
January 7th, 2010, 4:06 am
Hm I think it is very unlikely that those two characters are going to be friends XD
January 7th, 2010, 4:24 am
I'm with the old man on this one. Fences are over-rated!
January 7th, 2010, 4:32 am
Lulz Atty is such a Smartass o3o
January 7th, 2010, 7:51 am
I bet when the old dude shows Atty the way to catch pokemon, he'll sneak away
January 7th, 2010, 8:23 am
BUT! In pokemon red and Blue, you could jump fences. :D
January 7th, 2010, 8:58 am
The old man looks like someone off of The Boondocks. :|
January 7th, 2010, 10:07 am
Atty should be able to pass on witty comebacks alone because really, who wants to deal with a smart ass? XD

January 7th, 2010, 12:20 pm
Atty looks quite muscular in the second panel... especially in comparison to the old man... it's a good thing his sweater is think or that bony old finger might have hurt a bit. Such a creepy old man XD

BTW... Offer him a cig to calm him down.. LACK OF NICOTINE!! gotta be and if he's still a prick you can always blow smoke in his face Literally) <3

You mean... her and Atty aren't supposed to get together? D:

I need to re-think that fanfic...
January 7th, 2010, 3:07 pm
If I remember correctly you should have been able to. At least once or twice. :/ Oh well. Atty probably would have burnt it to the ground anyway. :'D
January 7th, 2010, 3:54 pm
haha I always wondered why that old man was lying down!

and I agree that her cardigan is WAY too hippy =/
January 7th, 2010, 4:54 pm
But Atty, you shouldn't let a few flowers get in the way of TROO WUV. o3o

Glad you're feeling better. ^^ And good luck with classes! Monday just seems too soon for them to start...

Anyway, superb page, as usual. <3

If I could, I'd just sick my Pokemon on the old guy and knock him out.
Then what could stop me?
January 7th, 2010, 8:35 pm
I like how the lineart looks now, too. 8) Simple but effective~

Love the flow of the panels!

Haha, I wonder if he's going to pay a visit to the Viridian Gym first, like we all did back in the day? ... Or, most all of us, xD

... Huh, I wonder. Would Blue be the leader? ... And speaking of which, even if Ash is in this, what about Red? Obviously, they aren't the same people, but...
January 8th, 2010, 9:35 pm
this is the best comic I've read.
January 9th, 2010, 5:32 am
Awesome, that guy is my fave character!!

Finally I've caught up! This is a thoroughly enjoyable thing to read and laugh at. I'll be here from now on for each installment. 5/5 from me my friend.

I love how you take your own story line, and add in parts of the games that we all remember from god knows how many years ago. Like 6 years 1000+ hours of playing the games and watching the shows beats certain parts into your head that when you hear a reference to you can still remember where you had seen that before...

(Sorry about the run on sentences! Try to use proper grammar all the time is no fun! I don't even think I know what I was saying up above...)

Seems like someone here never heard of a toll.
Really, if he isn't going to use it, then either put a fence or a toll. If he is, he should do it.
January 9th, 2010, 6:50 pm
This is hilarious. You have amazing artistic talent and comedy sense.

Hey, thanks for the reply. It's hard to find someone who actually cares enough to respond to a response. No I just wanted you to know that your doing an awesome job; and I being a fellow college student can understand there being delays due to class work. I can't wait to see what that evil little brain of yours comes up with for the next installments. (I'm just waiting for the time (most likely in the far away future) when Atticus can't light his cig and Dragon-thing does it for him. There are big openings for a punch line there. Like, "So you are useful for something." ahh but I'm not that good with punchlines, which you all just witnessed.) As you can tell I am a long winded, horrible typing, and annoying fan of yours. I hope you don't mind seeing my long obnoxious comments from here on out!

Ps - Don't ever stop doing manga, you have got a real good talent for it my friend. Do what you love not what another person thinks you will be good at.
January 12th, 2010, 2:36 am
If I had a nickel for every time I've wanted to send out my starter and kill that man...
January 16th, 2010, 9:17 am
Haha, I think being in an arguement with Atty would be annoying as hell. He would always have just the right thing to say to get you.

Heh heh indeed quite a good page
June 27th, 2011, 12:56 pm
Stand! Poor old man. I have a feeling that Atty is enjoying himself. He's not even trying to walk away! He always knows the right thing to say to get on someone's nerves. Oh, poor girl, she is a little too flowery.
Yea! You recovered from your illness! I love all your characters, you always manage to infuse them with some raw awesomeness. Even the old man! Lovely page!
