Pokemon Mystery Dungeon - RAD

September 11th, 2018, 12:12 am


[pasted from my 2nd author's comment on the last update, just to try and get it to people who won't check there]
I'd like to add onto this to talk about a few things:

1. I want to make it perfectly clear that I'm not dropping RAD JUST because I can't make money off of it. The reality is that I probably wont be able to make money of my next comic either for at least a few years, but i want to be able to do that if i felt so inclined. My goal isn't to break into the comic book industry. It's just a nice option to have at your disposal if you want to publish books or pins or other fun stuff for the people that like what you're doing. It's also fun to think about having a table at a convention full of Your Own Stuff where you can meet and talk to fans, which is another thing I've always wanted to experience but couldnt with RAD. All of these things are things I can't do with RAD, even if I wanted to, and if im gonna spend so much time on something, time that i'll never get back for as long as I live, I should just go ahead and put it into something that i have complete freedom over. That's what it's about. Freedom, more than anything else.
I will still keep posting comics to Jeeves for free. My desire is simply to have something that is mine and only mine without having to worry about someone bringing the law hammer on me if i do Whatever I Want with it.

2. I am trying to compile a summary of the story onwards, which I will post when it's ready. My work notes for the comic were done in a simple but very extensive outline, and with all of the different arcs i had planned, its a lot of stuff to condense into something of reasonable length and detail.

3. I have no plans to release my comic to anybody to continue. I'm not interested in having anyone come on board to take over my work, since i'm very particular about the portrayal of my characters and I honestly don't think a new guy would be able to do them any justice whatsoever. there's also the fact that inherently, having a comic that's semi-popular on the internet is bound to attract people who are fame-hungry mooches, and that was never the point of RAD in the first place.
So, that said, any copies or "continuations" you might see pop up are unauthorized and I would ask that you ignore them if you see them.

Most of you have been very understanding and respectful of my decision, and I'm touched by all the supportive comments you've all left. I hope this answers a few questions ad clarifies some things that may have come off awkward or ambiguous in the first post.

Thank you again. Most of you are lovely people, and those that are, I'm legitimately humbled by you.

Again, as much as I'll miss RAD, its more important for you to do you. Keep up the good work.

Don't worry, sometimes we'll need to take care ourselves first than others.

Noted. (Sorry for asking that way on the comment section.. it was kinda rude of me.. Will respect your work as it is. Hopefully in the future, may you continue your work.)

As upset as I am that RAD is over, I respect your decision, and I can't wait to see what your new comic(s) may be! Keep up the good work!

Well, it's sad that Rad's over, but I'm pretty excited to see what's next.

ok then, you only need to say it once :]

TerrytheTeryx, September 11th, 2018, 8:43 pm

I'll definitely try to follow your other work!
I am personally a fan of Idano. I may have missed any talk about it.. Was that something you were looking to continue in the future?

I totally see your point. You did a really good job with RAD, and I can't wait to see what you'll do next
