... Eh? What?

Suprise update! Slightly earlier because I love you guys.

Tried a couple of things differnet on this page 8| But the next will likely look different yet again. I'm just... playing around a lil'. But how about the text done by hand? Are we liking that or should I go back to how it was before?

Anyone who saw this one coming wins a free pig. I'm looking forward to the next page. I've been looking forward to this for a while...

See y'all soon.

I APPROVE! I'm really liking the plot twists here ;P

And I prefer this text over the old. The other didn't look bad, and it's not like Arial or Times New Roman (straight, perfect, whatever) but I just like the freestyle look of it :)

Not liking the tones on Khan's hair D: There are seams, lawl.

"Yeah. See you. Enjoy your triSPLOOSH."
See what happens when you actually try to be civil, Atty? You get splooshed. Happens every time, I bet.

Oh mah gaaaawd I love DT in panel 3. She's so happyyyyy~ to be more than a glorified lighter. Totally called it, how he was barely gonna' compliment her and she was gonna' think it's the best thing ever.

Wait, was Kahn just gonna' let Atty walk away... without giving him his winnings!? Pft. Now I'm wondering if that's not how it works in this comic. Maybe only Gym leaders give cash rewards or something? Or if you state that there's money on the line BEFORE the battle? I'unno. Guess I'll find out, 'cause if winning against Kahn didn't get him interested in continuing his journey with the goal of becoming the richest trainer that ever was, then whatever is happening now HAS to or he really is gonna' just go home. :s

Also, my guess is the sploosh is from that masked weirdo guy from like, a bajillion years ago. Is he from Team Rocket? Probably not, but I'm wondering if they're going to be making any appearances in this comic. Or some other organization, perhaps. I'd love to have some SERIOUS criminals involved, who wouldn't be afraid to actually do something serious to get the job done. Like take hostages or something. :o

[Edit] Durp, forgot to answer your question. Honestly, I kind'a prefer the freehand writing. It looks a tiny bit smudgy at some points, like between the words "I'll see you" in panel 4, but it's not really noticable unless you look for it, so it doesn't bother me at all. (and I'm not even sure that's from the freehand writing anyways, lol)

[Edit 2] Baaah, tried to make a rotating avatar with a bunch of pics of DT, but smackjeeves won't take it. :<

I keep being torn between liking Kahn and not liking Kahn, on one hand he seems like a nice guy "Of course you won" is actually really sweet and cute...but at the same time Atty doesn't like him, and I am firmly on Atty's side.

hmm... if it's that masked guy, then I was expecting him to do something. ...but not that...
Kahn totally threw the match. >_>" If Atty ever finds out, he'll really- (loses train of thought) uh, really... not like it. If he gets into another battle, he'll get beat up really badly.
The text looks about the same. Except... it has a different feel to it. Like it's more happy or carefree or cute... I think the other text matches Atty more, but it's really similar, so it wouldn't matter much.
By the way... did he just fall over that cliff again?

Old text suits the story much better. You have incredible handwritting, but it doesn't quite fit Atty's personality, and it makes things seem more....bubbly....... The old text, however, was PERFECT in my opinion. :D

If you think that the pages get done faster by doing the lettering by hand, then I say do it. The lettering doesn't look much different when you just write it out, and it's readable, so you do whichever you think is easiest.

IMHO In my humble opinion, I believe that the typed words are better suited for this manga. It has a more professional look. Now when it comes to sound effect and imagery (e.g. the SPLOOSH!) by all means draw it by hand. But for the spoken text, please type. I could truly see something like this published. Once you finish book 1 (or at least have the thumbnails through to the end), you need to contact VIZ Media, LLC. This company, if they like your manga (which they will) will handle all of the legal copyright stuff with Nintendo and GAME FREAK. I truly believe that both the story and the art are at that level. The handwritten text takes it down a notch. Once again, this is only my opinion.

Either Kahn's really nice, or DT's been leveling up like crazy after Atty's "intense training." xD Well, anyway it's good to know DT's won Atticus' respect for now.

As for the text, I think your lettering is easy to read! And if it's of any help... You probably already saw this hand lettering guide, but it's a good reference to look at from time to time: http://mynameismad.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d2x7nt3

I KIND'A feel like -slandering- Shadowfan's comic, just to undo any potential good he did for it with his posts. I won't, because it wouldn't do any good anyways, but still. Cute smiley faces do not make shameful plugging alright.

On TOPIC: I really don't think Kahn is the kind of person who would let Atty win. But then again, it's not like I know Kahn personally or anything. And really, if Merric did get frustrated, I think he'd go for Dragonthing, not Atticus. From the Merric's perspective, Kahn basically would've been telling him to throw the match to DT, not to Atty.

Watch me be proven wrong on the next page. D: *crosses fingers for masked mystery kid*

Coincidentally, I never noticed how weird of a word 'shame' is. Seriously, say it. Out loud. Look at how it's spelled. It's just weird. Shame. Shameful. Shameless. To have shame. Shame shame shame shame shame.
