...So. I wonder. Is anyone suprised?

*Twiddles thumbs*

Hope you like the page! And I'm off to the pub. Hence the early update time. You can tell I'm struggling for things to say when I'm coming out with insights like this...

... Okay. I'm ready. Here we go.

Tarkemelhion: Not his worst of moments though...

Yamilink: I'll try deliver soon ='D

Guest: When anger and shouting fails...

Koi19: Slight kindness does not a master battler make 8'D

Darkflying: It essentially renders this page void.

Christo556: A mixture of the two is healthy >8

SnakeKing: It's worth a shot right? If that IS his thought process...

Antlys: Time will tell huh >8

SuperBiasedMan: I do occasionally find it a good place to discuss plotpoints, and which gags work best... ... My poor, poor friends.

*Suki*: It could be worse >=

GreenNin93: Oh please, one step at a time ='D

SuperTangerine: Like Atty would do that 8D...

Staraito: If I ever draw DT getting hugged that will be a day indeed.

Noah/Becca: Cheers man =D

Krazeh: You forgot where he bitchslaps it o3o

Zetina: I'd say the selfish more outweighs the stupid.

Story teller, Astralle: It's the first step down a long path.

Diao-chan: He's not so much a fool as he doesn't care =3

Biscuit Thief: Thanks XD I'll try keep it up.

Bliss41: This is only the beginning for Atticus~

JunYo: There has to be something going on >8

Aeris: There can be miracles?

Murohshei: Amd the second time, and third and fourth.

Rainbird: Aye, it's hard not to notice when he's cowering right in front of you XD And hey, to hear that the page looks good always means a lot to me~ Thankyou.

DaemonisFides: Coming right up D8 As soon as I get done the pages for other comics I'm updating ;O;

In England: Maybe by chapter seven 8D

k33nbl4d3: That would take the accusations at Atticus for animal cruelty to a new level >8

pride1289: That's what he does 8D

StupidSceneKid: It's a defense mechanism I'm sure.

Yori Hayashi Chan: Atty's made of stern stuff.

Giras the Ebil: Fun to draw I tell ya.

Floo Phantom: 2012 already?

Maiumaora: Kindness makes up for exp points anyday~

Animus Forgotten: Not many people can screw up being nice. It takes skill.

Pat15: Heheheh XD Nicely illustrated.

ApaFox: There's no I in TEAM! ... Though there is a ME if you jumble it about.

Speak92: Forever friends~

IAMMIZ: Thanks =D Glad to hear it.

Sato_chu_chan: Curse you and your tactics D8

Scarfur: Either that or it's not all as it seems >8

Mosama: I think you'd be right lol.

Bubblefox: That maybe ='D Either he's kind... Or he wants to win. Hmm.

Addict: Oh dear. Don't sue me for that.

Spazatron: I was waiting for- and looking forward to- someone saying this XD

raaawrkttyXD: BBQ lol. Maybe if he'd stood a bit further back on his tail.

Ice_Wolf: Atty's sure got a bad reputation >:

KirtiMiko: Interesting though 83 And one should not step on the tail that lights your cigarettes.

Kurozaki: If it didn't we wouldn't have much story ='D

Faith: He'll take his chances I think >8 Things are looking slightly up.

Subterfuge: One does sound like it would lead to a more immediate success.

Natacia: The future is uncertain...

Ryuchael: Another lawsuit I don't want pinned on me.

Alicerush: RUN TO THE HIIIILLLLLLLSSSSS

Raichi: Hey >8 It's not like he's suddenly picked it up and given it a cuddle, he's only acting quite lukewarm.

Doodeedoo: Rape is the punishment for losing a battle? I know it's been a long time since I played pokemon but...

SkweeMan: I like it ;D

Brown_tiger: Believe it 8D It ain't likely to change soon.

Jazeki: Kill the Rat Attack at the very least, one would hope.

Hero of Comedy: Hooray for more comic to write 8D

Newyorkdefenertalon: It's just a mild break from the coldness ='D Maybe it means something, maybe it doesn't...

Tataki: That would be the toning 8D

Piano-kun: THE POWER OF LOVE! No wait, wrong story.

SquirtleIsLove: I engineered that to happen. Yup.

Rainbowcrayon: Unless it's a trick ;D ... +1 Cunning, +2 manipulation.

Asj: Likely >8 When DT's damned obviously terrified he's not about to kick him.

Cedric Bale: I like taters.

Cinlag: Just scrape it away and there's some underneath~

Ally: Haha, Oh You.

Varsaigen: It is incredible how his eyes do that isn't it...

Cals1607: Gotta have a lil' variety though right ='D?

Shukumei: Yeah it might be apparent, but adding the speech bubble in that panel was an afterthought lol, originally the flame was far more clear. But even he wouldn't do that lol... ... Not about to burn his shoes XD

Ree: Interesting how this mild expression is being seen as such compassion by everyone XD

Pawky!: I would love that >8 Please don't let it be a tease ;w;

Hdnlv: Oh ace =D I do wonder what it's like to people who're reading through it all in one go so I am glad it's enjoyable. Thanks!

Natashakiable: Only mildly nice it seems, mind you x3... Don't expect him to be giving out cuddles.

Dudemandude: Be seein' ya.

Maowe: All should make sense as it goes along >8

Redandblack: Well story driven and character driven I suppose D= There is a story in this, I'm just gently wading into it.

Darzell: Possibly. Or maybe just a stone carved into the shape of one.

Jennie Mars: Or maybe it's his one chance of happiness D8

MoreThanOnce: Atty's jes' full of suprises.

toboe059: M-maybe ='D Let me see what I've got up my sleeves.

PRKoneko: Quite a few people are suspicious of Atty. I like this.

Emily-N3rd: Just a tad~

Loyale: I think DT's gratefull even for that.

Ackbar: Well we can't doubt you D8

Dalek555: Good tactics ;3 I like your icon.

Cultra: Don't worry, I won't tell >8

Zmoore0890: Thanks =D I think expression are dern important and I do worry about them so this is good to hear.

Kaitousblackwings: Well >: A seed of a conscience at most.

Abyssoldider: It's okay >: He might pull through this one.

Blable: *offers hanky*

Terra325: Incentive don't get much better than that.

NibblesClouds: It's incredible what can count as sentimental after all that's gone on so far ='D

in-a-tumor: It is =D? Thanks! I'll hafta try keep it up.

WiddleWade: Looking at it now, you're right >: It is pretty skinny. I'll be sure to fix this on the next page. And hey 8D That sweaters the height of fashion dontcha know.

Darrelkun: Cheers XD I didn't know if anyone else would find that funny.

Jojoamy: Let's see if I can beat it some other time 8DDD

VSoF: What an honour =D When naming my own charmander Dragonthing I went for the abbreviated version DT >: I should offer a public service announcement about that really (no H0ly let's not get ahead of ourselves).

Thanks for commenting guys!

Too bad DragonThing can't talk to him... Then he could explain things... ^_^" I mean, a big part of Atty's problems is that he just doesn't know any better.

Now folks, if you look here you will see the rare and elusive Atticus nice side. I would take a picture because you will probably never see this again.
I'm glad Atticus can tell how scared Dragonthing is and is trying to be nice, except he didn't have to step on his tail -_- For a second it looked like he stepped on the flame and I was thinking "OH NO! He put out the flame! Dragonthing can't die! Noooo!" Then I saw it behind the shoe.
Great page, and can't wait to see what happens next.

I'm gonna be a nitpicky ass and say the cigarette in the fourth panel is kinda small and skinny. But that's because you're such a good artist that there's absolutely nothing sensible to complain about - I've been lurking along the whole comic to find a moment to go "Aha!". So it's totally your fault.

You can make a title for these comment things!? I enjoy this comic so much, I named my character on HeartGold Atticus, too bad dragonthing is to long a name, otherwise when I got charmander (after thoroughly beating the game) I would have named her that. Ah well. Can't finish something you didn't start. (named the rival Kahn as well)

The way you draw Dragonthing sometimes is the most pathetic, depressing, sad representation of a Charmander that I have ever seen or could ever imagine seeing.
I think literally my soul cries every time I see him. ;^;

But I hold out hope that someday, SOME DAY, Atticus will see fit to only make him look like that every once in awhile, as opposed to every page.

(Then again, it could be soon, 'cause I still have a lot of pages to get through.)

Awesome comic though. Definitely my favorite pokemon-related comic by far. :) Your style is great~
