oh my god
You're crazy crazy awesome! I started reading this years ago, and it's one of my most treasured (if also a guilty) pleasures. I love your style and how it's changed over all this time, and the depth of emotional investment... Just amazing.

DO NOT KILL PUCK!!
In the last panel, pucks face looks like that green pig from angry birds
Seeing this updated makes my day :) Thank you for your effort
I just reread through the whole comic and wow, it's still just as good as I remembered. I'm really looking forward to seeing where the rest of the Sabrina battle goes, and I hope beyond hope that this isn't the end of Puck ;w;

GO PUCK GO PUCK GO PUCK
AHH PUCK!!
I can't believe that he'll (probably) end like this..
I'm feeling a series of "no"s coming along, very likely accompanied by emotional trauma
Noooo! Not Puck! Finally caught up, and you leave me with this?! Ahh your work is CRAZY!! Never commented before, but I've loved your stuff for the longest time, huge fan!
@Briarlight's Wish: oh ho than come as close as you like!

(i'm glad im not the only one to catch that reference)
It looks so hard to keep drawing Puck's shell from the changing angles, but it's really helpful for always understanding where he's facing.
Oh gosh these pages are absolutely beautiful and at the same time the story that is being told is utterly splendid with a very good emphasis on character. Everyone grows and evolves, becoming something more. It's terrifyingly dark but very wonderful.

Looked at my notes for this part and realised I hadn't documented it properly, but that's fine. I remember it clearly enough. Basically I sent out Puck to face the Alakazam since he had much higher Special Defense than Zager. He also knew Bite (all those punches he throws here would be Bite attacks, but that wouldn't have looked as good) and at first it seemed like it would be a relatively short battle. Except. Dark-type moves were considered Special Attacks in Gen3. And that Alakazam knows Calm Mind. And Recover. And oh god it would not be so simple after all .... Puck knew no physical attacks and I now have a much higher respect (and fear) of Future Sight ...

And as always, thanks for your nice comments and patience! :D
