I'm feeling in the zone lately! As a result, I hope you enjoy these slightly speedier updates. ... Even if nothing much seemed to happen on this page. Sorry, sorry, I ended it on another cliffhanger I know. I fully intended on having the reveal panel on this page, but it just spoiled the flow... You know how it is.

The vote seemed to be in favour of handwritten text, but a couple of people said it looked a bit bubbly for Atticus. Fair point, so on this page I stiffened up the font I did for him a bit.

Atty's hair and jumper have gone all darker from being wet. Poor dear. This page was one of the most fun to draw, but I'm thinking it should be nothing in comparison to the next page. I'm thinking.. the next ones gunna be... REALLY fun. To draw, at least. I've been looking forward to this.

Fingers crossed.

See y'all soon.

Yay! I was on DA and saw the update, quickly came over here to update my bookmark and nabbed second (barely) all in one go!

Loving the story! Keep up the great work, even if Pokemon aren't the most popular thing around.

I personally liked the typed up text. Sure the handwritten text has that traditional appeal, but it doesn't looks as good to me. but I am just one person.

Hmm Well if the purpose of the water was to stop him from smoking, perhaps a parent/relative or a family friend? I wont bother making the guesses that other people have made =p

Well, Atty seems to have a similar mindset as many of the comments on the last page, it looks like. Assuming it was Merric. Next page: It was... DRAGONTHING! Nobody saw it coming. *nods*

From the look in Atty's eyes in the last panel, I'd say he just saw a blastoise.

Wow! Awesome job on the wet look. Poor Atty, his cig is all wet now XD I am really curious to find out who it is. I believe it's the mask guy/girl
(don't think we found out yet, but looks like a guy). That or Kahn's sister (not sure how to explain the water in thus case). Can't wait.

comment? I think Its Kahns squirtle. cause when Dragonthing beat the nidorans they had X'ed eyes. but for all we know, Merric never actually feinted.

I'm trying to figure out what that black thing is under the last panel... -.o Shadow maybe?

Been reading this comic through the last few updates, absolutely love it! And I love how Atticus' sweater looks stretched and water-logged here. Very well-done. XD

Hydro-CANNON! Haha, I think the general consensus is that it's Kahn's squirtle. I'm going take it a bit further and say... it rage-levelled to Blastoise?
Teehee, I love it how all Atty can look at is his limp cigarette.
Ooh, and... Kahn's cute in this one.

Atty always blames Kahn, doesn't he? ^_^"
I find it interesting when characters are shown wet. ^_^ ...seems like some shows have characters magically dry even in water. >_>" And Atty with his wet hair in his eyes reminds me a little of Ichigo in the newest Bleach manga chapters. Who, in that form, I think is really cool.

Cliffhanger! I'm a relatively new reader (got caught up yesterday). Point is, cliffhanger! WTF!

Also, I bet it's some random Gyarados on a rampage.

Not Merric It's obviously not Merric. When Atticus accused Kahn, he wasn't saying Kahn himself shot him with a water gun; he was saying Kahn used Merric to do that ... which Kahn denied ... obviously. I was guessing Kahn's sister as well.

Freaking awesome comic I've advertised this comic to all my friends, plus a cashier at a bookstore. It;s imaginative, creative, original, and the dry sense of humor slays me every time. Yes, that's right: slays.

Thank you for posting this up here. You've made my day with this story!

Krensada: I first heard the name in To Kill a Mockingbird, with the character Atticus Finch. I've liked the name since. That's who his mum named him after.

We started reading To Kill A Mocking Bird today in my english class and when we read the part introducing Atticus I was like "OMG Like the guy from Mokepon!?!" And My teacher was like "Wut?" And this guy across the room was like "Yes! Mokepon rocks!" I have to say... I have a new best friend. ^^ xD
