Glad to hear you got your drive back.Good luck with all dat work.

AND HEY, IF YOU NEED ANY HELP, MAYBE ME AND THE OTHER GUYS COULD ASSIST.
Okay, let's get this back to business.

The main reason I haven't been doing comics for the past ... year ... or so ... college. And a lack of drive. I've updated Serious times a few times,, but otherwise I haven't had the drive to make comics for a while.

Thankfully - to an extent - that drive is back. And the first thing I want to do is start updating Dex World again. And I've decided to reboot the comic. Streamline things, have better scripts, dialogue, character development, all that jazz. I've decided to upload the old issues on here so I can clear out Dex world's archives for the reboot.

I've also decided to start doing comics in bulk, instead of making shortly before updating them like I used to.

And the final big one - which is kind of a double edged sword ... actually make that triple-edged: I'll only be using original characters. No cameos or guest characters. I'm doing this so I can have a more uniform effect with the characters. It's something I noticed using Jerry and Dacer is that they kind of clash with the other characters, who have more of my style ... Dacer especially. Unfortunately, this also means that I have a LOT of spriting and designing to do, and for someone as lazy as myself this is no good. And even for bit characters, because I also want to avoid Only six faces syndrome (Well ... as much as I can given my style.)

So, it'll happen eventually. I have no idea when, but I will be working on it for a while.

You can always count on that handsome devil to make things silly.

Have I mentioned that I HATE making comics on my college laptop. 'cuz I do.

Anyway, college is somewhat busy. And then I got Rayman Legends. Then I got sick. And still having this computer isn't exactly helping nurture a creative environment.

Anyway, this sub-chapter's going to be one of the sillier ones with cameos and general silliness (Which is why Jerry's here).

Anyway, I really hate these text bubbles, I'm thinking about just using good ol' square text boxes now. Comments about it are appreciated, and are appreciated in general, thanks.

Here's the part where I start apologizing, right?

Anyway, School ended, got a WiiU, college stuff, Dream Team (Which is AWESOME, by the way) and college.

And truth be told, I am getting REALLY sick of this plotline, and believe it or not, it was actually gonna get even MORE depressing. I'll just show the stuff I had to cut out in flashbacks.

So a short, silly filler chapter before I get to the plot proper will start this weekend. I'm really hoping to put more emphasis on the goofy side of Dex's sense of humor.

As for my other comics.

Sonic Shake, (Which still shocks me that people read it, truth be told) is dead. I took the whole "Anti-Sonic Comic" comic thing as far as I think I could. Ironically, it's the second most fun comic I've had.

Dex Version: Probably cancelled. Lack of drive, lack of interest from the fans (Seeing as I lose a few every time I try and update) and I think I should just let it rest.

So: My attentions will be directed towards Dex World, (Which I also considered cancelling) Marvelous and the Mustachioed, and the collab Serious Times.

The Marvel: I've cancelled. Gonna see if I can put the characters into Dex World, though.

I'm also considering starting a collab of my own, but ... eh.

Incidentally, I'm updating on my new computer, which is REALLY a pain because most of my sprites are at home, and MS Paint is a real pain in the neck to use on this thing for some reason.

Plus I don't have photoshop, probably gonna download Paint.Net though, it'll probably work on this more powerful computer.

Until Next Time, peace.

Edit: Did I say this weekend. I MEANT I'M IN COLLEGE YOU GUIZ! #sorry #hashtagsdontworkonSJ

Okay, what's been going on with me:

Just finished exams and graduated from High School (About Time).

As of the moment, I'm looking for a job and preparing for college.

Until I get a job, I'll be using my increased spare time to practice two hours a day, and make comics.

So expect a Marvelous and the Mustached page tomorrow, and a PokeDex page ... eventually.

Man, should reply to these comments more.

@King_Rover and @G.B.A: We should start a club.

Oh wait, we have Serious Times.

How Grumpy would an Old man Dex be?

What? You thought that Chibi-Dex would be less grumpy?

... I told you Dex's backstory wouldn't be a fun one.

Also, while The Marvel is still in the planning stages, I'd really appreciate it if you would check out Mario and Luigi: The Marvelous and The Mustachioed which unlike my updating schedule would lead you to believe, I'm in the process of the title and first page right as I'm updating Dex World and the title page should be up a few hours after this is posted!

I imagine that would sting.

Also, speaking of writing down ideas, I should really write down mine, (Imma restart Adventures of that blue guy)

You know how I feel when I update when Sonic Sonic focuses on Knuckles.

Something that really annoys me when I can't make comics for a while is not only that my ability to construct comics is off, but I feel like I'm rushing the storytelling.

I had a really fluid, natural way of getting all of this exposition out of the way, but in my infinite wisdom I didn't write it down three months ago.

Blargh ... this chapter's really just a pain in the neck.

But enough with the wangst.

Yeah, Dex kind of has a macabre sense of humor.

And in case it isn't clear here, when someone's magical powers develop, it comes out in a great big burst. If you're a water user, you generate and am surrounded by a ton of water. If you're an ice user, everything around you (including yourself) freezes. If you're a fire user ... you get set on fire, until your body adapts to the magic. And you can't. Be. Put. Out.

I swear, I'm not trying to kill Dex or make him completely miserable! ... in this comic.

I'm totally trying to do that in Serious Times, though. (Although it's really the only way to compensate for how powerful he is)

Oh, and this aspect of him getting his powers is still in effect in Serious Times, even though it's a different continuity than Dex World.

Oh, and if you could see my Pokemon request I put last page and would be able to do it, you are my new best friend.

And if you could give The Marvel some love, http://www.themarvel.smackjeeves.com

Sorry for the lack of updates, for an in depth explanation, check out Pokedex, because it's ten at night when I'm typing this and I don't want to type all of it out again.

Anyway, bad news, I might have to put Dex World on official Hiatus. However, I definitely want to finish this chapter before I decide, I've even got the next page made and will update the day after this page is up.

In unrelated news, I would greatly appreciate it if you give my new comic a bit of love. It's currently in the planning stages though. http://www.themarvel.smackjeeves.com

Oh, and who Paracelsus is will be explained later.

And if any fans have a female Eevee, Dratini, Swinub, or any combination of the above with their hidden ability that they don't mind if I had, I would be supremely grateful. (And I'll think of an actual prize later)

... I'M GOING TO BED NOW.

Edit: Came back and I lost a fan ... that's a good sign.

Let's just skip the self deprecatory remark about the paucity in updates and just skip to the part where I try to get back on track shall we?

And I finally fixed the eyes! I have a reason for changing Deborah's eyes from yellow to blue (They're supposed to look a dull shade of blue, by the way) but I really darkened Yuri's eyes from bright green to slightly more natural green, so there's one problem out of the way!

Comments please and Merry Christmas!

@Tex: Ugh, I know. They're too bright ... I don't think I had this problem before in any of the earlier issues though.
