Pokemon Mystery Dungeon - RAD

[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.

Looking like i'll be a little bit late by PhantomCat
August 24th, 2017, 8:10 pm
so, ive been super, super busy this week, so im guessing the page is ultimately not going to be finished in time? maybe?

i might be able to swing it, but if there's no page on Saturday morning, just sit tight, i'm gonna try to get it done by either later on saturday or sunday sometime.

so yeah, just a heads up. :y
there's still a chance that thing'sll go so well that im not late at all, but y'know, just in case.

hey folks, sorry for the update wonkiness of late - ive had a few schedule changes come up that interfere with my normal workflow, so instead of updating today (july 6, 2017), it looks like the update will instead come on saturday (july 8).

depending on how things look next week and the week after, this change might be permanent, but in the mean time, i'm still going to shoot for thursdays. i'll just have to play it by ear.

thanks for being patient with me, i hope you find the wait worth it. :)

New Banner + Character Page by PhantomCat
May 27th, 2016, 12:36 am
So this week I decided to buckle down and finally throw together a character page in lieu of a comic, since the thing has been lying unfinished for the better part of like, a year. So go check it out it you want, I'm planning on adding in some more minor characters as I get the motivation for it. Also, while I was at it, I put together a new banner that I feel better represents the comic as a whole. Its... Not a whole lot different, actually, but it looks a lot more polished than the previous one. :)

I'll try to have a page next week for you though. Thanks~

Hello, readers, it's been a while, but I managed to save enough to replace my tablet! It's actually arrived here about a month ago now, but I've been so busy with getting settled into a new job that I havent really had the time management skills I needed to get straight back into comic production(or really use the computer at all, ajds). However! Starting 11-24-2015, I will be working hard in my off time to get a backlog of pages geared up and ready to post before I start actually posting them. That said, it'll still be a couple weeks(or more) before we see anymore updates rolling out, but I'll probably hold a few livestreams in the mean time. If that's something you're interested in watching, keep an eye out for announcements, I'd love to see you in there. :)

I want to give my most sincere thanks to everyone who donated towards helping me with my tablet fund, and to everyone who helped spread the word. Without you guys, I'd probably still be tabletless, so I really can't thank you enough for all your support. And to everyone who couldnt donate, I want to thank you for your patience; It's really nice that you guys are waiting so patiently, since Ive had issues with people hounding me for pages on past projects. It won't be long now though, so just sit tight a little while longer.

Thats really all I have to say for now, though. Thanks, guys, you're the best.

See you soon~
